Depression, stressed, paranoid about future. Treatment?

I've been feeling depressed lately. Basically, my parents have gotten a divorce lately. I've been so concerned of my future with my boyfriend and ending up like them that I have almost forced him to promise to stay with me. I have these moments of on and off sadness. I feel happy one moment and right when my mind is clear, I think about things that bother me and how i'm always worried that now my boyfriend will leave me. I'm too afraid of my future now and i've lost all hope in things. My grades have fallen and I can't bring myself to care. I haven't been hanging with friends as much, i've been trying to avoid my house. I have so many feelings as well since my mom left my dad for another guy. I am mad and angry at her but i'm too afraid of my own mother. I can fight with my dad but I can't bring myself to talk to my mom like that because she basically scares me. I know I shouldn't want to disobey but I can't bring myself to ever break rules because i've been actually afraid of my mom for years. Oh god, i'm ranting. Well, there's more to it, i'm losing friends and such but does this sound like anything to you? Like am I just stressed or is this actually a depression?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

This is a clear case of Depression.
You need psychiatric assessment and assistance - both drugs and counselling will be necessary.
As it is situational ('reactive'), chance for recovery is excellent.
You should not allow others' conduct to influence your conduct...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I can understand the stressful condition you are going through.

I think you should get the help of a psychiatrist.

Further indepth discussion will help in arriving at a diagnosis.

You are showing some features of depression like on and off sadness etc.

Please consult a psychiatrist at the earliest possible.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
