Our expert says:
In any family, maybe a bit more in some cultures, the focus on "what will other's think" can take annoying precedence over a more efficiant care for the individual who doesn't feel well. DO, please, see a good local psychiarist for a proper assessment and a discussion of your treatment options - depression and anxiety often go together, and both respond well to treatment, both by medication and by CBT-style counselling, so there's no need to continue suffering without effective relief.
