I know how you feel, I'm a 23 year old with depression and realized it struck me around puberty. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Many people feel like you do and keep it inside festering for years. Don't let this happen to you.
You are very young and though you may feel worn out and tired with yourself, you will be changing in these next 5 years, more than you can imagine. I remember when I was 17, boy I was messed up, but YOU WILL BE OK!!!!
Stop thinking you're letting people down, I'm sure if they knew you had these feelings they would understand. I found TALKING, especially to my parents, really really helps me. READ READ READ, I found those Harry Potter books helped me through some ROUGH times. A good book is way better than tv. And you really should think about going back to school. Or even just drawing or writing poems about how you feel can be therapy.
Good luck and don't give up, you can control your feelings!
