In brief: Depression

Sadness, lack of pleasure.
Irritability, over/under eating, over/under sleeping, decrease concentration, guilt feeling, feels like a failure. Some are suicidal. Please, get help. Suicide is the 3rd most common cause of death among teenagers (#1 accident, #2 homocide, #3 suicide). Do not underestimate this.
