Am I depressed?

I always cry and I feel worthless. I feel like no one understands what I'm going through and I constantly argue with my dad. When I feel really upset I end up shouting at people. I don't like doing this but I don't realise I've done it till its out my mouth and this usually starts another argument. I have self-harmed ( dont judge me you don't know anything about me or my life) and I find it releases a bit of the pain I feel. However I don't know how much longer I can cope. It was just the other day I had a breakdown in my friends kitchen because we had an argument, we were having a sleepover and we argued and I started crying hysterically. I walked into her kitchen in the dark and started rocking back and forwards while trying to breathe. I am scared to tell anyone and I feel like I can't trust anyone.

First you need to calm down. Next, when an issue pops up that has the potential of starting an argument, stop and ask yourself, "Will this make any difference in my life five years from now?" If the answer is no, go for a walk. Third and most important, find a counselor that's available for you and talk to them about your depression. There are medications available that can make a big difference in your life. Never forget that life's a journey. All we have to do is relax and enjoy the ride. :-)

Thanks, but I really don't think I could go to a counsellor. I hate meeting strangers and I try to avoid awkward situations at all costs. I know it sounds stupid but I would rather die than have to explain my life story to a stranger I don't know and have no reason to trust.
