It definitely sounds like you have depression, and it sounds like a bad case. and I completely understand what you are going through. When I was your age and younger, I'm 21 now, I had *severe depression, and I had almost the exact symptoms that you have. Something that you might consider is visiting a doctor, and asking him/her if there are any types of medication that she could prescribe to you, that helps depression. Here is a website you can visit that tells you the names of depression medications http://www.buzzle.com/articles/depression-medication-list-of-antidepressants.html (copy and paste the link into your browser) Just look over the names of those medications, and if there is one that sounds like might help you, If you decide to visit a doctor ask if you can try that medication, to see if it might help you. Something else that might help your depression is having a hobbie, is there something that you enjoy doing, maybe art? or sports? music? Shopping? Reading? Also just think positive thoughts, and tell the negative to go away. Just think you are only 16 years old, think of how much life you have ahead of you! Thats very exciting to think about! And you said that you don't like to tell people about your problems, because you feel as though they don't wan't to hear them. Don't think that way, find someone who you are very close to and tell them about your problems, if it's your parents or a close friend, whoever it may be, just ask them if you can talk and tell them what's bothering you. It helps to tell someone. Trust me. Also you said you feel as though your appearance has to be perfection. Nobody's apperance is perfection, Just look in the mirror every-morning, and say to yourself, " I am Beautiful", and smile to yourself. Start your day with something positive.
