How to tell parents I relapsed into depression?
My mom is always supportive, but my dad is one of those “you’re too young, talk to me when youre thirty about REAL sadness” type guys.
I hate being depressed not only because of the feeling, but i feel even MORE depressed knowing that my parents have to pay for it, so much so i dont even know if i should tell them i relapsed.
We’ve been through therapies and medications for two years, and the depression stopped and i was weened off medication.
Recently though it came back about 3 times stronger, Im losing weight, I have suicidal thoughts, self mutilation and i KNOW its dangerous. I just cant stand putting my family through more financial hardship.
Is there a way to go around this?
