Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. You are right about
distractions. They help. And I think the counseling is a good idea. That will get you on the right track. Also talking to your family doctor helps.
I am happy that you were able to chat and get some input. Depression is no fun, but know that we here understand you and that you will get a lot of advice here.
I hope that you start feeling better soon.
Take care, keep posting. I can also direct you to some teen sites that might help.http://www.teencentral.net/
