I'm a 17 year old boy, Junior in High School, and have been feeling depressed for a couple years now. Mostly because I feel like a dumbass and someone without a future. I'd say I have really bad grades, like Bs and Cs and a couple Ds in the past. I just feel so stupid and that I don't know anything except how to play guitar, and I guess piano. I feel like that's all I'm good at.
I've pretty much given up and now when I see a math problem I drop into a crisis which usually lasts the rest of the day. I have no will to succeed. I know I could understand everything in my math class (The class that's really made this whole depression worse) but I just give up and never even try anymore. Even the classes I enjoy I get a low grade in. I love History and I get Cs in AP US History (I guess it's AP, but still).
The only reason I cry is from the thought of leaving home, putting myself to rest (You know what I mean), and my parents being worried about me. I'm really worried what I will become.
I've made progress on what career I'd like to do, maybe Architecture, but every time I think of school I just give up on that too at that moment. Please help me.

You're depressed. You need to talk to your parents.0

Dude I graduated high school with a gpa BARELY over 2.0. and I wasn't in any AP classes. I got my crap together and went to college where I'm making the deans list now. You are not dumb. Just do your best nothing more.
Share your feelings with your parents they should be able to support you.
Maybe take a year off after high school and get a job and just take school pressure off and give yourself some time to truly think about what you want to study. That way you can start university refreshed and know what you're working towards.0
