    I have depression and my parents and school have been really supportive. I do three day weeks, reduced GCSE's and I can leave class whenever i feel like i need to. as a result of this i end up feeling bad when im happy because i feel like im lying to everyone. i feel like as soon as i feel even a little bit happy i dont deserve all the help i get and im a fraud. i dont know how to get better if my brain is constantly sabotaging me with this imposter syndrome bs

    If you're depressed and even a bit happy, that's great! Remember, all the support they are giving you is meant to make you feel happy. You shouldn't feel bad that you're feeling better because their support is meant to make you feel better. I get what you're going through, though. When I'm upset and people are dead supportive to me, I sometimes feel like this, too.

    Coming from a twelve-year old girl who has had a terrible day so please don't judge what I'm saying.

    Remember that all the help you have gotten is there to help you be happy. So if you are happy you're getting better.

    Hopefully you get better at dealing with your imposter syndrome.

    I feel the same way but try remember that If you were lying why would you be having help and people are trying to make you feel happy so that’s a good thing ! 😊
