My depression has gotten so much worse in the last few month

My depression has gotten so much worse in the last few months than it has been my whole life. I’ve started self harming almost daily. When I try to reach out to others they just get awkward. I can’t find motivation to do anything any more, not even get out of bed. What do I do?

@grace829 I understand how you feel. I never believed in postpartum depression until I had it. No one believed me. Sadly, not even my husband. I had to pretend and smile infront of my in-laws, which I think is the most painful part. And now I am going through depression again (because of the divorce) without anyone to lean on to...
Do not ignore the pain that you are feeling. Get some help. Find a support group meet up near you. Hopefully they can help you find a cheap/free counselor that you can talk to.

@Bluecloud89 I haven’t been hiding my self harm from her. It’s in an easy place to see. She still hasn’t seen it and I think I am going to show her so she understands my mental illness is a real thing.

@Needhelp2017 I’ve been trying to get help. I reached out to my best friend and she got awkward and told me to tell my mom instead of her. Because I know I need help I found this website to try and get some advice. If all else fails I will tell a school counselor but I know in the end they will call my mom and leave it up to her to ignore.
