Hey there. I just wanted to tell you that it's a good thing you realize you need help. I'm not sure what your definition of a doctor is, but I would recommend going to see a Psycologist, not a Psychiatrist. You see, my personal worst fear is to have "Chemically enhanced happiness" (AKA being put on drugs to get me out of depression) A psychologist is trained to help to talk you through your problems, they are no allowed or certified to give out medicine, Psychiatrists do the same thing, but have the medical training to prescribe medications. So the choice of you want is up to you. I also want to say that I know how you feel, and I hate feeling like this. Just be happy that you have the resources to get help, and please, help yourself, feel happy. My prayers are with you.
