Am i depressed doctor?

Patient

Q: Hello. im female and 19.
I would like to know if u think im depressed.
I feel fine to everybody else but I constantly keep myself busy. I feel lonely and in a sort of bubble. I feel like im always pretending to be happy but I seem to do a good job at it.
when im alone I sometimes just burst out crying.
um.. I tell myself im fine and what im doing is normal such as watching my soaps, having a cup of tea.. but something just feels like im just doing it to keep me busy. why would I question such normal activities?

Symptoms:  Lonely.
excessive thinking
questioning my actions constantly when alone.
