I say go to your doctor for sure. Don't be shy about it either because I've heard of that before.

Just to add in a little tid bit. As much as people like to believe that depression is either biochemical or psychological, it has alot to do with Sociology. Trust me, I just read all about it in my Sociology class.

Well duh obviously sociology plays a huge role in depression. You'd think someone who lost their job or lost a gf or something has a greater chance of depression.

massive mood swings, changes in hunger/eating habits, and feelings of lethargy and depression are not at all uncommon for your age (for a number of reasons... hormonal changes, social aspects, etc...).... I know I had them for sure.

My suggestion would be to find something to focus on that you are good at or want to be good at... be it a sport, subject at school, training, shoot.... even card tricks (*can pay off when you are older :)*). Do you goto Church?

If you are having trouble eating due to depression, its ok... things go wrong.. everyone has rough periods, and if that means you can't follow your diet like you want to... oh well, don't beat yourself up for no reason. On the other hand, you can view it as a challenge and be determined to overcome it....

Talk to your parent(s)/grandparent(s). before you even think about going to a doctor...

like nightop said, join sports teams, go to church etc. Anything that gets you socially involved. Social solidarity is very important.
