Hey everyone. I'm new, just joined. I've been feeling depressed ever since my dad died 4 years ago, I wasn't even 18 yet.. it's not just sadness, it's anger, panic, anxiety, mood swings, insomnia, pain, helplessness and even more things.

Go to your doctor or find you a good psychiatrist. Just because you are in the care of a psychiatrist does not mean you are are crazy. I have been seeing one for twenty five years and I would not trust any other dr to treat my depression. Tell the doctor everything you are feeling. Be totally honest with the doctor. Make a list if you have to. You need to do this soon.You might even get some counseling. If you do this It may take a few weeks but I believe you"ll be feeling better before you know it. Thank God for a supportive husband.You are in my prayers.
A mental health professional should do an evaluation.
