If your parents noticed this they may be worried about you but they dont know whats your problem share with your parents and you said you were in a environment where u were criticized a lot this may be one of the reasons for your depressed behaviour this may be depression or may not be coz diagnosis of this must meet some criteria so better consult a psychiatrist

Confide in your parents, they will support you. You also need a counselling from psychologist to help you get out of these thoughts. Dont carry your past in your present and future, leave it behind and be a wonderful person whom GOD created with so much of love.

Hi, I have been suffering from depression for several years now and have contactly gone through periods of low energy. I am currently going through this stage at the moment. I don t feel depressed though and yet I feel I need to sleep al lthe time. I have no energy, lethargic... I get headaches a few times a week and get aches in my body. I feel like I don t have energy to do anything, but really want to move forward with my life as I feel I have been like this forever. Could this be anything other than depression?

I am wondering what the term would be for someone who thinks they have every medical problem going. Is yelling one minute, sad the minute, won t say a word the next minute. Attention seeking from everyone, anywhere. States that they have thought of commiting suicide and isn t afraid to tell that to anyone around

I have OCD and depression which is now getting out of hand because I feel like I am going mad. An example of how bad it is: I looked on my bookcase, and noticed that ONE book had fallen down, resting on the shelf, and it sent me into turmoil. I have to constantly check that things are undamaged. I even hold new books in such a careful way, as to keep them in their brand new original condition. I don t even accept normal wear and tear of things.
