I find it really hard to laugh and be happy recently, I've debated telling my mom I should get diagnosed with depression but I'm scared of what she'll say. we have a tight bond so ik she won't get mad, but I don't want her to worry.

    when i was in high school i told my mom that i thought i had anxiety and wanted to see a therapist so that someone else could deliver the depression news to her. not necessarily a good solution, but it’s what i did.

    It's best to be open and productive about it early, especially if you're noticing that your life is changing because of it. It would have made a world of difference if I told my friends or family the first few years that I was depressed. She will worry but she'll also understand and be happy you told her!

    People might worry but that just means they care, be open and honest and seek a diagnosis, it helps in the long run.
