Gum disease?

I’ve realised my gums have receded a lot and the teeth between the receded parts hurt. I can see little gaps between my teeth. The gums are swollen and red/pink but don’t bleed.

I’m really scared now:( I’m going to the dentist next week but... show more I’ve realised my gums have receded a lot and the teeth between the receded parts hurt. I can see little gaps between my teeth. The gums are swollen and red/pink but don’t bleed. I get really bad depressive episodes so my oral hygiene gets neglected. I’m really scared now:( I’m going to the dentist next week but wanted to know what y’all say because all the people around me say I’ve nothing wrong with my teeth, using my hypochondria as an excuse to shut me up but I know this is an actual problem.
