Welcome to the HealingWell depression forum. I am so glad that you have found us. Depression is hard, especially at your age. You have so much going on in your mind anyway.
Maybe you should talk to your physician and see what he/she says. You could always go into therapy if you don't want to take medications. But I want to mention something another moderator mentioned on another post. Depression is like your mind being broken. It is a chemical embalance in your brain. So your brain is kind of broken. If your arm was broken, you would fix it, wouldn't you? So fix your brain. Either with medication, or with therapy. I do both. I go to therapy and see a psychologist. And I also see a psychiatrist for my medication. And my depression has somewhat gone into remission. I have been doing very well for a long time after suffering from depression for over 30 years. So give it a try.
