Patient : I am a 12(almost 13)year old girl who has just started highschool. Lately, I have been feeling extremely angry, sad or just plain negative. My life has been turned upside down with starting highschool and moving house. I understand that everyone has days where they feel down, but i am worri ed that there is something more to it. I am highly irritable (someone using my pens will send me crazy) and i am sent fuming. I never used to be like this but i have for almost a year. I think I may have depression, but am not comfortable talking to my mum ((only live with mum), friends or anyone else. For me to see a doctor, I would have to tell my mum so she could drive me. Please help me!
