Was I stupid to reach out to her about my Depression?

all my life i have seen on tv & online saying if your depressed reach out to someone.
i have a slight case autism but its not that bad as i was able to hold down a job for six years.

but working 60 hours a week at the job i left march of last year very messed me up.

i reached out to a old high school teacher months ago last message she sent me months ago said i hope everything with me.

why are you told to reach out to someone if they dont care?
