Well, just as the title says. I'm 16 years old and don't see a purpose in living. I've had a problem with depression once before a few years ago, but then I had no friends in school and got picked on constantly. Now however, I have a group of close friends, I have people who care for me, and I have my music which I assume could take me places. I don't know why I would be depressed, but anytime I think about my future, ie college, a job, etc, i don't see a purpose at all. I don't see a reason to spend my time building up to something that is just materialistic. Am I depressed? I'm not sure what the textbook definition is. Also, should I talk to my doctor about this? My family doesn't have the kind of money for therapy so that would be out of the question. Just a regular physician. Please help out guys.
