Morning Sunshine! Mikale told me about this question, and I have a different take than depression. I think it's called growing up. My daughter (the one who is the same age as you) has been seeming down to me the last couple of days too. I could be wrong, but...I think it's because you need to be around your friends, people your age, doing what young adults do. You've been out of school for a while now and you're not surrounded by the constant activity of your school life and friends. As much as your family loves you, you need the physical connection with your friends. Call someone up and get together with them today. Dance, sing, be goofy...go to the movies, the mall or just hang out.Take silly photos and put them on Instagram. Let me know what ya think. (((hugs)))
Hi. Sometimes, even when your closest friends and fam are around, you don't feel you are connecting with them because something is distracting you. You may not be aware of it at all, but subconsciously, you aren't resting well. As trivial as this may sound, it might be the outfit your wearing. You might have heard the same story from Aunt Jane 100 times already. You aren't feeling the "love" in the air because nothing new or exciting has happened to you in the last week. Your thinking about the movie you saw. Just hang with it and tell them you'd like to go for a walk or what always works for me.... smile and nod! :)
While it can be depression, I think sometimes it is just a case of having a "down" day or part of a day. When this happens, I either choose to try and interact or just feel lonely. Try to remember all of your friends and of it happens often, you might want to mention it to your doctor. (I hope this doesn't sound like I'm minimizing your situation.)

I have no real answer, i think maybe a lot of it's because they think their problem is unique and nobody understands and that causes distance, some times they feel that the love they are getting isnt love at all its just pity and that can cause you to feel worse, some times they think there is no hope and no one can help them, some times you just hit rock bottom and every thing makes you feel alone and helpless all of these things make you feel very alone even if you are surrounded by the people you love or love you, i think the thing to remember even when youre heart is at its heaviest , you soul is at it darkest and the storms cloud your mind is even then when its at its worst and you feel you can't carry your burden for is there is always some one who loves you,who is looking out for you,reaching their hands out to catch you as you fall,or some one who will help you put your heart back together or help put your mind at ease. We get so wrapped up in our problems we forget to look around us and cannot see the ones who love us, but they are always there. For example you have your mom and dad and brother, you have Chris and your aunts uncles and cousins.......
