Hi, I am 17 years old and I'm worried that I might be depressed. It just seems like I have lost interest in every activity I used to love, it's hard for me to feel any kind of emotion anymore... it doesn't really matter what I do, listen to music, look at art, read a book, whatever. I just can't make an emotional connection with the things I used to respond strongly to. It's the same with people, I can get along alright and everything, I just don't feel any particular way about them. Last year I was really driven and motivated about life, I had all these wonderful aspirations about what I wanted to do with my future, and now it all looks like something that might never happen. I have no friends or social life outside of my family and this really bothers me. Sometimes I feel really alone, and I start crying for no reason, or I cry about something no one else would; One day I just looked at my dog sleeping and that's all it took. I've thought about seeing a doctor or counselor about this but I don't even know how to find one, I'm not in public school so I can't see a school counselor or anything. I'm at a point where my whole life is ahead of me and I should be excited about life, but all I feel is doubt and anxiety, any advice about what to do would really be appreciated, thanks.
