I'm 19 turning 20, I've been depressed for 5 years it's been a tough journey but I can manage by distracting myself through school. I told my mom about it the year I realised I had it, but she didn't believe me, she even got a bit angry and shouted. She's the type that only believes in physical illness. Don't get it wrong though, she's a great mom who took care of me a lot but no ones perfect, right? I live in a country where mental health isn't that much of a priority yet, and I don't have the finances or job to bring myself to a psychiatrist.. So I guess I'll have to wait till I graduate and find work. So that's the backstory.. For about the past few months whenever I feel way more down than usual I've been hearing this voice in my head that mocks me, it keeps on telling me I'm worthless, a burden to everyone that deserves to disappear. There was a time when I was feeling so glum it told me to kill myself. I've been reading a few things about it.. and I'm worried it is what I think it is. Can anyone help me out? Any opinions as to what this voice in my head is?
