Hating yourself and depression


Q: Dear doctor, I am 22 year old boy (Student)and I have been living out of home since 2000. At most i spend 20-30 days in a year with my family. In 2008 i fell in love with a girl(one sided) and i wanted her at any social respectable cost but she didn't accepted. All my friends have girlfriends that makes me very jealous because i don't have any one. 2nd factor is that i am a black thin boy and i think that is the reason why she didn't accepted me. All these factors are leading me to depression. I keep away myself from mirror because i hate my self and because of her i don't like any girl now. And in the meantime i learned about masturbating and porn and of that i am habitual for 3 years . All theses are leading to depression and i think that is also affecting my academic. These all things keep floating in my mind 24 hrs a day and makes me feel guilty and as much i think i hate myself more. Please suggest what should i do?

Symptoms:  Backpain
academic performance
social behaviour etc.
