Hi Leahpheahh,

Nice to meet you!

I know you said you don't want to talk to your parents but I would still recommend that you talk to them about how you are feeling. At least give them a chance to help you. If you think they won't understand, then they may surprise you. And if you are under 18, then your parents may need to be involved for you to be treated.

You might also bring this up with your family doctor, the next time you see him/her. You might also reach out to a school counselor.

There are psychological tests that can help to identify depression. But if you are feeling depression symptoms of any kind, and if you have felt these symptoms for a couple of weeks or more, then I would recommend reaching out for some help.

So don't go through this alone!

Gary
