    That's the sort of mind set you can get with depression. It's a very difficult feeling to deal with, but you don't have to do it alone and there is support available.
    Here's a link to some info on depression and I'll mention a couple of the ways you can access support. You don't have to have depression for this sort of info and advice to be helpful so do check it out even if you're not sure you're actually depressed. Depression is just one of the main things that causes this type of feeling so it's easy to get advice that way.

    One of the best types of support available is talking therapy (and counselling). This sort of feeling ties in with negative thought patterns and therapy is a great way to work out what those are and work on them. You can access it a couple of ways including by talking to your GP about services in your area or by talking to your school/ college/ uni about the services they have.
    You can also check out some info and advice on sites like mind.org. A lot of it is things like lifestyle changes which may not be a huge help by themselves and not all of it will be the right fit for everybody, but it's good stuff to bare in mind and as a combined approach can be quite effective.

    Hope that helps a bit. I'm also going to move this post over to the Mental Health section where it'll hopefully attract some more god attention and responses.
