Anonymous asked: Do you have to see a doctor if you think you have depression? Is it possible to 'cure' it on your own without medication or therapy/counseling? Can you ever be too young to have it (17)? Sorry for the questions, I just want to know if it's something I could do on my own. Thank you for reading.
You don’t have to see a doctor ever for anything if you don’t want to. It’s always your choice. As for mental afflictions, it all depends on the specific case. If you’re feeling depressed every now and then or it’s a temporary depression due to certain events or it’s very mild, it can be dealt with alone, but it’s always, always, always your choice whether or not to see a professional. You can never be too young to have depression. Depression is a non-discriminatory disease.
