    If other friends are going, go! She doesn't have to interfere in your life.
    she messaged me just now saying that she didn't mean to include me in that bit about being boring, she meant the other guy, and that the reason she wasn't mentioning to me was that she thought I wouldn't want to come after all the drama that happened last time (some people in the group got in a big argument).

    She's never lied to me before and seems genuinely upset that she'd upset me, so I think I should believe her? Or am I being wilfully ignorant?

    How can you know if you're depressed without an 'official' diagnosis from a GP?

    Even before I went to the GP I knew I was depressed. I felt very down a lot, I had a lack of motivation for life and school work etc, I had lost interest in my favourite things, I had a bad sleeping pattern. There are indicators.

    lol go to the GP!

    i know people say the internet is the worst thing to do but honestly thats the only way i found out i had ADHD (plus indicators), i dont recommend though it as you could scare yourself (think you have something which you dont) Only if your sure

    memories being bad seems pretty common here, I reckon it's to do with depression.

    ooh awesome, I never was any good at those sort of things, all the humanities subjects that involve essays were just impossible for me :yep:

    l used to have this amazing recall thing going on where I barely had to revise (did like nothing for my GCSEs, haha) but since then it's crap. Has to be the depression.

    I love those kind of subjects. Lemme guess, you're into science?

    hi, I'm afraid you can't get antidepressants or anti anxiety meds without a prescription from a doctor

    can I ask what's stopping you from seeing a GP? we might be able to come up with some solutions :yep:

    I used to get away with no revision when I was at school, it's so hard studying now because I never had to know how to do it before

    yup, I studied biology and chemistry and maths at school, and now I'm at uni training to be a pharmacist :yep:

    :hugs: parents can be so controlling could you maybe schedule an appointment and then say you're doing something else like going out with friends? It sucks having to go behind their backs but you shouldn't have to suffer without help

    Were you referred for counselling? Or given SSRI's straight away?

    I can't because the doctors i go to, know my family really well! So if i try to book an appointment the receptionist is more than likely to mention it to my parents. Its literally got to a point were i can't cope with it anymore, and nothing is helping properly, i get temporary relief by talking to people.

    What if you refuse counselling?

    That is up to you. I have had counselling and it did not really work for me.
