I Think I Am Depressed

I think I am depressed. It’s like I have extremely low self-confidence about myself. I don’t want to do anything. I don’t want to go out anywhere even to places I used to like going. I don’t hang out with friends anymore like how I used to.

All I want to do is sit at home and watch anime. I have to make myself go to college every morning. Sometimes I would just be doing something than just stop and start looking into space for about 1-3 mins before I snap out of it, and I sometimes think about stuff like suicide and the best way to do it.

And I am only 16 :/

Also, 3 years ago I got told I had Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). And I never took any medications for it.

    Sounds like you are in a depression and it certainly appears that you suffer with ADHD. You need to speak to someone, someone who will listen but not patronise. Even though you need to do that you always have to remember that ONLY YOU CAN HELP YOU. When you feel down, remove yourself from that moment in time. I mean, do something completely different, if you are watching TV and get them kind of thoughts get up and have a bath or make a coffee. By doing this you will be turning away from the negatives and your mind will be removed from that point in time. Also accept who you are and where you are in your life (upbringing, age, social interests…that sort of thing), Understanding and accepting that will be a good platform for you to build your confidence and self esteem.
