Being ignored for my mental healthWatch
I've told my parents many times I feel depressed. My dad isn't even in my life so I don't even bother with telling him but whenever I told my mum she blames it on something else. She ends up saying me crying for 2 hours and being depressed 24/7 is because of me drinking a simple 'cup of coffee' and that the caffeine must be too much for me to deal with, despite me being depressed every single second of the day every week? Then another time I told her that I can't sleep and I have insomnia and she said I was lying about staying up till 4am and that I was looking for attention. From that day I kind of made a promise to myself to not share my mental health because I looked like someone who was looking for attention apparently. Its her ignorance to depression that really irritates me. Sometimes she sees that I have been crying or whatever and she doesn't even ask if I'm okay. Sometimes i've cried in front of her and she never asked if I was ok then either. She works long hours so I think that explains some of it but that counts as an excuse to an extent right? Apparently she's going to take me to get help but then she just forgets it completely and thats happened a few times. Now the other day she's seen her friend and she starts saying how she was in a depression and kept crying in the restaurant, and that she couldn't believe how someone could get to that ''stage'' where they can't control themselves crying in public, even though that has been ME a thousand times. I dont know I just wanted to vent about this somewhere. The situation is just really getting me and I needed to talk about everything since I just get ignored irl
How long have you been like that?
