Depressions killing me...
16 year old... Been depressed since the age of 10 also been self-harming since the age of 10. People recently found out (within the past year) and think it's a recent thing. But the problem is that counselling just isnt working. I have major trust issues and tell my counsellor i'm fine when i'm feeling suicidal. Counselling isnt going to work for me, I have had about 5 different counsellors. What do i do? I am fed up of wndering whether i am gunna kill myself...

Hi Nothing

THis is a serious problem! If you are feeling so depressed, the doc needs to do some seretonin test to see if you need to go onto an anti-depressant.

With the counselling, if you are not going to disclose to your therapist how you feel he or she can not do anything and treatment will be a waste of time.

You will need to find a therapist which you can trust that can help you with your problems.
