Depression?

Patient

Q: Hi, My name is Rachel and I am 12. I have a lot of problems in my life, family, education, even friends. I always seem to find myself running out the door for fresh air and to be alone. Sometimes, when things are really bad, I lock my self in my room and cry. A lot. I don't like to leave bed, because all my worries seem to pin me in place. I can never relax, I am always worrying or in a rush. I can't even remember the last time I was actually happy. Am I suffering from depression? Please help.
