"You can't say you're depressed or have anxiety unless you've been diagnosed with it by a professional. If you do, you're an attention whore and should just stop complaining."

Yeah that's nice. I haven't seen my mom in almost 6 months, my grandmother just died, I lost two pets, I had to say goodbye to all my friends and move to a whole new state, my grades are failing, and I have no new friends. But since I haven't been diagnosed with depression and anxiety suddenly means I don't have them and I should just stop complaining? Look, not everybody has money, time, or patients to get the tests and whatnot done just I can put more and more money into therapy that doesn't do shit to help you. But of course, like every opinion I've ever made in life, there's going to be a bunch of people who want to shoot me down. Can I just say and believe what I want to, or do you people have to fight me on fucking everything. Do you know how bad it hurts to be completely 100% convinced on something, like depression and anxiety, and then having people who you thought you could trust tell you that you're wrong and try to tell you to go against your own opinion and think that what's wrong is right? Like I don't have anxiety because I don't have anxiety attacks all the time, or I don't have depressed cuz I don't self harm and cry all the time (even though I really do, but I don't let others see). Can you just leave my opinions alone?
