Anonymous said: Hey I know ur blog isn't about this stuff. I want to ask for some advice. I have had a rough couple of months. I think I'm mentally unstable and I don't know what to do. I'm afraid to tell my parents bc there's history of depression in my family and my mom doesn't quite understand depression. I'm afraid to tell my friends bc I don't want them to treat me differently. I'm afraid of what I will do. No one suspects anything wrong with me because I've gotten really good at hiding this. Any advice?
Ah, advice is something I can give. You can leave me ask anytime you need to dearie. As for what to do, if you’re against telling people you know, try a school counselor first (assuming you’re still in school, leave another ask to correct me if that’s an incorrect assumption). Counselors are great for talking to problems about and help you know what to do or what your next step should be. As for friends, it may seem surprising, but if they’re good friends, they won’t treat you any differently other than to be more concerned about how you are, which is definitely okay for what you’re going through. Parents aren’t my forte though, if you don’t think your mom will handle it well, don’t tell her, there’s not much else I can advise on that since I only ever keep my parents in the dark. But, I hope this helped and know that you can always leave me more ask and I should get back to you within 24 hours.
Keep your chin up and hang in there,
