Do I have Depression ?

Recently ive been really stressed about my current relationship with my parents, friends, boyfriend, and school ecspecially. I currently look to smoking as a solution/ stress reliever. I used to self harm, but have finally looked at the outlook it had on myself and my family so i stopped. I always feel down and think low about myself, I dont have many real friends anymore. My relationship with my family isnt how it used to be, I feel like i cant tell them anything anymore, without them yelling and only seeing the negitives in all situations. I have gotton to the point where i dont want to be around them anymore because it just leads to more arguments. I just hate feeling down all the time, do you think these are some possibilitys of developing depression ? or do I have it? :/

You already seem to have it. You need a counselling and treatment. Also your parents will need counselling to be able to support you to get out of this. Plaese dont delay anymore. Be positive, start treatment. You will be fine definitely.

I am 14 years old and I think I m depressed, when I look at myself I wonder why i even bother because life doesn t feel worth getting up in the morning for and I would rather be dead than carry on. I look at the future and instead of seeing a way out, I just see a load of closed doors. I can t handle my life anymore, the slightest thing makes me want to cry and never get up again, and I feel stressed all the time and speak to people in ways that normally I wouldn t. I kind of distance myself from people because I think they won t understand. I don t feel any motivation anymore to do anything constructive or worthwhile, because it all seems so pointless.
