I was so scared to tell my parents about my depression and now I wish I would have told them sooner.I don't know exactly what I was scared of. They're my parents, they love me. They have been nothing but supportive. I felt like I had to keep it inside so that nobody would think that I can't handle medical school, because I can. I don't want to quit school or anything. I was afraid people would make me take a leave from being sick and depressed and thinking I wasn't capable of finishing out the year. But I did finish, and with pretty good grades. 2 A's, 3 B's and a C. I think that's pretty darn good given the circumstances. Now that 2nd year is about to start, people are starting to doubt my ability to power through again. I'm kind of doubting it, too, but only slightly. I'm still going to give it one hell of a go and pray for the best. I won't let anything stop me, I've wanted this for too long.
