Is it a good or bad choice to tell your parents you're depressed?

I'm depressed and its been that way for about a year and a half. I want to get out of it. I want to be the happy girl I used to be, but it's hard with all the stress going on in my life. I want to tell my mom and dad but I'm afraid.. I mean, I know they'll be there for me but I don't want them to worry about me. Please don't judge or say anything mean... I just need help.

It's a good choice. Tell your parents. I doubt they'd be mad at you, but the best thing to do is talk to your parents that way you can get over your depression quicker.

No, but Ive been feeling depressed. I guess saying I was depressed was kind of over reacting, sorry.
