That's so horrible. Your mom needs to realise that you need to get yourself better so that you are able to deal with her bull.

OP ignore your mother and anyone else who is negative toward mental progression. I had several counselors and a psychologist because of my mother. it hurts their feelings but you have to get better because if you dont your entire life will be an exhausting never ending hole of depression.

In addition to that, a lot of patients are hesitant about going to counseling at all because they are nervous. OP might not have told his/her mom about it because s/he may have wanted as few people to know about it as possible and/or was afraid that the mother would ask questions about the sessions.

Being depressed is most likely caused by not enjoying or being happy with your life or surroundings, and not being able to make things positive even though they aren't.. like you were able to before. Clinical depression is a chemical imbalance in your brain which creates issues with self esteem, confidence, thinking clearly, etc.

I have depression and PTSD related anxiety as a result of years of verbal abuse and neglect at the hands of my father. Three years ago I managed to stop the abuse and my mom, brothers and I have been much better off ever since. I'm surrounded by people who love me and support me and even though there are still remnants of the past abuse that occasionally surface, my life has been amazing.

Aww OP I'm so sorry! I really hope you can overcome this. I've had a lot if trouble with depression and I know how hard it is when no one understands. Stay strong!

sounds pretty selfish on her behalf. you didn't do anything wrong by trying to help yourself and have someone to talk to. fyl op, hope things perk up for you soon.

Don't let this be a reason to go further into depression OP, keep taking the therapy it'll get better :)

Hey, I'm glad you were able to seek help by yourself :) that's a hard step, as for your mom hopefully she'll come to understand the impact her negativity has on you
