Are these signs of depression?

Sometimes I feel very exhausted and tired, and tend to constantly have terrible thoughts, like fearing I'll slip in front of an incoming train or thinking about possible sad events. While I'm dealing with jealousy of my friends who are in relationships which have gotten in the way of my schoolwork in college, I'm dealing with a fear of dying. If anything. I'm feeling more depressed than usual, and it's getting worse. Nowadays, I fear something happening to my mother and then I'll stuck on my own. I'm going on 19 next month, but the thought of just losing frightens me and sometimes leaves me in tears. Sometimes, I tear up over thoughts of me never saying goodbye or apologizing to someone before something happens to them, and I keep having these thoughts. At times, I can't sleep nor cry myself to do so. I even feel faint every once in a while. I don't know if I can deal with this anymore. It's even worse that my mood switches; this usually happens when I'm alone, even in a room full of people, unless I'm with a group.

Re: Are these signs of depression?

I think that you're suffering from anxiety, and maybe even obsessive compulsive disorder. Please seek out someone you can talk to. Your family doctor can be a good start.
A school guidance counselor may be able to help you, too.
