Patient :Hi, I have a question to ask about depression. I'm a 15 year old girl and I think I'm suffering from depression. Since the age of 12 I've been in foster care. And I don't know my mother and my farther, he is an alcoholic and he smokes weed/rezin. Which had a massive impact on my child hood, because of the strong smell it has, made me end up having no friends. I find my self to be very low and down. I have got no friends, apart from people I see and speak to in school, I don't talk to them out side of school. I also find my self hiding all of my problems, try not to think about them and I end up losing control of myself and brake down crying. Every time I try to question the fact I have depression I try to discard it, but in reality, I may have it. One of my old friends I was very close too, suffered from the same thing and most of the symptoms she has, I feel I have too. Ad the other day, I think I had a panic attack. I'm too scared to go to my gp, so that leads me to here.
and I would appreciate it if you could help me.
