Do I have a low libido?

Patient : Ok so I'm 14 and recently I've developed attraction to girls. But the problem is, I find it hard to get it up at different times of the day. It's really worrying me. It takes a lot of concentration to get it up. For some reason I can get it up easily in the morning and I'm happy with how I am in the mornings but for the rest of the day it can be a challenge. A little about me which many have affected my interest in girls: When I was 8 years old my 12 year old brother showed me porn and I didn't get hard over it but (I know this sounds strange) it put thoughts in my head of why wasn't I attracted to girls at that age (I know now it was silly to worry about) but he showed me porn for a while and every night I used to lie on my stomach and move up and down on my mattress (I'm serious, and it feels so strange thinking about it now). Right now I suffer from depression and I worry far far too much. I don't exercise and I don't have a great appetite, basically, I'm worried that I'm not like most lads. One of the answers I've been looking for was how many times should a lad my age get an erection? I don't get spontaneous erections, and I never had one. I find it easier to get it up over girls in lingerie than naked girls for some reason. So, how can I fix this predicament I'm placed in. Is this psychological? Or is there something physically wrong with down there. I know I'm attracted to girls because I would feel a pulse run through my privates but it never seems to get any further than that. As an attempt to get it up more easily I haven't masturbated in 19 days. Please leave an answer and put my mind at ease. Thank you.
