So I know I've posted about this one time before, but I have until this weekend to tell my parents about my depression, or else my therapist threatened to bring them in. Does anyone have any advice/ways that I could tell them? I don't know how to start the conversation. I know that by doing this I can potentially feel better but it is stressing me out. They don't really understand my anxiety, so I don't expect them to understand, but I'm afraid that they will be disappointed or embarrassed that their daughter is so messed up. How did you guys tell your family? My therapist acts like it is easy and she told me that I am refusing treatment, but for me it's not like that at all. I am so terrified of them knowing and judging me.
