wondering if I'm a little depressed or just unhappy?

I've been wondering if I'm a little depressed or just unhappy? I've been moody and sometimes I get cranky easily. I just don't like living anymore. I'm 23 years and currently waiting to start my Bachelors in Graphic Design in September. Prior to that I was a Law student. I studied hard and did everything to pass my Year 1 Exams, but failed and I was very upset! I rewrote a second time and failed. By then I had given up and lost all motivation, I didn't study, and failed the third time. I just feel worthless and useless, I don't like living anymore. I'm not as happy as everyone thing I am. I think about dying, I cry myself to sleep, sometimes I just break down and cry. I feel like a burden to my parents who spent thousands of dollars on my Higher Education and I feel so guilty about that. And here I am, 23 with no Degree. I'm just fed up and I feel lonely, I've no friends. I just hate me and everything. Do I even have a purpose in life besides being a failure? Everything feel hopeless.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum. From the description of your symptoms, it seems likely that you’re suffering from depression. For the same, I’ll suggest you to consult a psychiatrist & maybe a clinical psychologist also as you may require rounds of psychological counseling and may be drugs to overcome the depressive illness you seem to be going through. Meanwhile, I’ll also suggest reading some inspirational books as I have seen a lot of my patients benefiting from them. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
