I've heard this so often, and you will be amazed at how supportive people will be. You may even find out that one of them is enduring the same thing and has been afraid to talk about it also. Your family loves you, and your well-being is everything to them, so please talk to them. Life is too short to be miserable, get the help you need.
Hi belle, any chance you have had a blood screen. Check thehiddendisease.com for some info on testosterone replacement.(And yes I realize you are female) I didn't know that it could effect woman as well as men. This site has some very informative patient interviews. Good Luck!
