Today, my mother told me to 'quit having a pity party'. I was just diagnosed with depression. I've lost my boyfriend, my job, my academic standing, and I just got rejected from every graduate school I applied for. And my mother thinks I'm a cry baby. Great. FML

Your mother is awful.

Those telling you to suck it up are not medical professionals and do not understand the clinical disorder that is depression. Your mom is one of those who needs to either go to nursing/medical school, or shut the eff up. You can no sooner get rid of depression by solely "sucking it up" than someone with diabetes can control their blood sugar using solely their magical mind powers. Seeking help takes effort and energy, but please do seek it. Also, remember the lesson your mother has taught you - she cannot be relied on for emotional support, so no longer seek it from her. (Funny that people like your mother and those who commented snottily in this thread would be the first to whine the loudest at any minor inconvenience that affects THEIR lives...)
