    What category of depression do I fall under?

    Ever since I began my schooling years when I was 7 years old, I have been depressed. Reasons for this being that I was bullied throughout my entire schooling life, day in and day out, for 12 years. I thought leaving school would fix this but in the following years it never really stopped. After that, I was yet again made to feel worthless and useless by my mother's boyfriend. By this time all comments about being ugly, weird and useless among other things, was concreted into my brain. I am now 25 and I am generally unable to assess any situation with anything other than a negative outcome and nearly all of my thought process during it revolves around what other people think of me. I am also completely unable to talk about my feelings as the belief that people will just laugh at me is set in my brain. Most days I am generally able to hide symptoms of major depression, but some days all the feelings and sadness from the last 18 years all seem to hit at once as I have never had anyone to talk to.
