well here's how you do it.
show them this question.
they won't think you're a freak, they love you
and they're your parents. you're their own flesh and blood,
they'd do anything to make sure you are okay.
don't feel like because you're a guy that it makes you look queer since you're pretty depressed. that's the best way to put it at least..... you'll be okay soon. i'm bipolar..and i have adhd...well, my bipolar disorder started to develop when i was 15, but last year i told my mom i think i'm bipolar...didn't believe me at first, was put on an antidepressant and it made it all worse...now she believes me. my aunt told me my parents were in denial because well..they're parents, they blame themselves when something goes wrong in their childs life. but there's always times when i tell my girlfriend i feel so stupid for crying and tell her i'm sorry. of course, she reassures me and whatnot....but it's like, i'm always thinking when i get depressed i'm not "masculine" anymore....but i know i am, and it's some stupid stereotype that has damaged all guys....so...don't go hard on yourself.
tell them you're suicidal. it's not a phase. you need help.
that's how it really is. tell them that.
hope everything is okay for you, need anything email me.
