i'm worried that i might be depressed. I'm 16 years old and i've been feeling really low for about 7/8 weeks now. i've been crying most days during the week, i've been feeling really exhausted even though i get enough sleep each night, i've found it hard to concentrate in my lessons at college (i do A levels) and i feel like i can never do anything right.. also i feel like life isn't going to get any better; i think about death quite a lot but i know that i would never kill myself so would this still make me suicidal?
i haven't had any traumatic things happen in my life, no deaths in the family or otherwise so its nothing to do with anything like that; i think its mainly to do with college stresses (deadlines etc), and friendships (recently one of my friends who used to be my best mate ditched me for another one of my friends so it could be that this has contributed to me feeling this way) and i suffer with low self esteem, generally in how i look but also i don't feel as though i'm any good at anything.
i also feel as though i have no direction in my life, like i dunno what i wanna do when i'm older in terms of jobs etc. as well i feel like im under a lot of pressure to succeed and do well in my A levels, not from family but mainly from college and myself.
i just feel that im at the bottom of a really deep pit and i can't get out, and i just find myself wanting to stay indoors all the time and i have no motivation to do anything anymore...
i don't know if i'm depressed or whether i'm just going trhough a phase but i have had episodes of feeling like this in the past couple of years but this time its definitely the worst its ever been
help me please!! haha thank you xx
