Do I need help and what is wrong with me?

Patient: Do I need help and what is wrong with me? Am I depressed or is this normal?

Symptoms: I feel sick inside my mind. I do not feel like doing homework anymore even though I have always been a straight A student. I am not happy anymore either. I feel worthless and broken and I don’t think I can be fixed. I feel alone. I put on a smile for my teachers and friends because I don’t want them to ask questions.

Doctor:
