Ok so the other day I posted on here as I thought I might be depressed but I wasnt sure most people responded by telling me to go to the doctors which is a really big deal for me as I struggle with my confidence. I lost my mum back in november which I suppose has contributed to how I am feeling right now but I think it is more than just this. I think that if I go to the doctors they will just put it down to me loosing my mum and send me away saying that I need to speak to someone to help me deal with the loss and move on - do you think this will be the case am I just overreacting thinking I might be depressed? I have struggled with socialising with people and so I have always preferred to be on my own as im quite a shy person and so dont know how to open up to people. I have had to deal with a lot recently: my dad and step mum split up but only found out after I had moved 200 miles away from most of my family with my step mum and because of my job I only get to see my dad and other family members once a year, i started a job a couple of years ago and got on really well with my bosses and they really looked after me but at the beginning of last year they sold their pub and new owners took over I kept my job but they wanted me to run the kitchen vearing in mind I was only 18 and hadnt had this kind of responsibility before and I had no one to turn to for help as the new owners had no clue what they were doing - it was a very stressful 6 months but my previous bosses told me they were getting another pub and so I went to work with them again things were looking up and I felt a lot better. Then I lost my mum which was a bit of a knock back. But its only in the last two months where I have started feeling depressed as described above I often cry for no reason but should I just put these down to me grieving should I go to the doctors, am I really depressed or just overreacting!?
