Welcome to e health forum.

You have self diagnosed to be having Depression. But have not given any specific details about your symptoms. Self diagnosis of conditions is very dangerous and can cause more stress. Hence it is not advisible to try to self diagnose yourself.

In your case, it is understandable that you are in severe stress. But to receive appropriate diagnosis and specific therapy, it is very important to acknowledge the condition and let your caretakers, parents or guardians know about your issues. Without that, it will be difficult for specific treatment.

In case, you do feel lonely, then trying to get yourself involved in group related activities or working out in a gym would help to elevate your mood and help you feel better.
