Patient :I just have a few questions I would like to ask you. Me and my boyfriend have gotten into a few arguments about my depression, anxiety and anorexia nervosa disorders because I don't really like to leave my room or my bed and I don't really like to eat that often due to fear of being overweight. He tells me that I can control them all and its hard for me to control all of them, and its really hard for me because I have been like this for such a long time, its difficult to switch back to the way I was a long time ago, free no worries and happy and healthy... and He also says that Girls and Boys experience depression the same way and I have read some articles and websites about depression and they all have said that girls experience it twice as much as boys do and experience it a little different if not more intense than boys do. please help me.
