So I've tried (in the past) telling my mum I have depression to which her reply is always 'I was depressed as a teen too dear, don't worry, it'll go away, it's all just part of being a teenager!'
No sympathy. Whatsoever. Of telling her a secret that feels shameful to me. I told her previously I wanted to go to my GP but she said not to because I was just a child (this was 3 years ago when I was 15). Now 18 I've gone to my GP who's trying to get me to see councilors, etc because it's not just 'teenage angst' that I just need to 'get over' but now I don't want to tell her! She neither cares not understands (I lost 4 kilos in a month which she didn't notice) And to be honest, I'm not sure I want her to know anymore.
