how old are you? if you are still in school, you can speak to a guidance counselor. or you can tell your dad you are not feeling well, & ask to go to the doctor. you can then speak to your doctor about how you've been feeling, & he/ she will refer you in the right direction. but your dad DEFINITELY needs to know, i am sure he loves you very much. its true that he may be distracted by his new wife, but that does not make you less important.<br />
<br />
if you are over the age of 18, you can schedule an appointment with your primary care physician on your own, & he/she will point you in the right direction.<br />

wanting to keep to yourself & feeling like a burden are also signs of depression. please don't forget that there are people in your life who love you, & get help before your depression gets worse.
