You need medicalhelp: Based on your description, you need emotional support and medical help. Please share your problem with your parents and ask them to find help for you either from a Conseller or a psychologist. It is not uncommon to have such problem during teen years but there is medical help available. But you must seek help right away and not delay it.
Dr. Patricia Foster

Get help now..: You seem quite depressed and need to see a mental health professional right away. Please have a parent or a trusted adult come with you for an initial appointment. Write down all meds you take, any alcohol/drug/tobacco/caffeine use, current stresses and about when you started feeling so negative. Your pcp is a good person to ask for a referral. If you feel suicidal, go to the ER. Please get help.
