Teen depression: It sounds like you are afflicted with teen depression. It can cause all of the symptoms you describe. It is a medical condition every bit as much as high blood pressure or diabetes. You need treatment and it really does work. I have been in your shoes in my life, and want you to know you can come through this and see the wonder of life again and experience joy. Please seek help today at local er.
