Answer
Hi sarah,

It seems to me that you have signs of depression. You might think that it is because your way of thinking is wrong. But in fact most mood disorders are not due to "madness": but because of an easily treated disease. Most people with mood disorders have a disease called hypoglycemia (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/what-is-hypoglycemia/).

This can be treated by going on a hypoglycemic diet (   http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/the-hypoglycemic-diet/)

Please read:
Depression is a Nutritional Disorder
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/depression-a-nutritional-disorder/

and

Depression is a Disease of Energy Production
http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2013/depression-is-a-disease-of-energy-production

And yes, sunshine provides vitamin D, which is an essential ingredient in the production of feel-good neurotransmitters.

Please discus with your parents and/or your doctor if you want to.
