Disclosing feelings or signs of depression is not an easy thing to do but definitely something that can increase the likelihood of positively overcoming it. if you have people you feel comfortable expressing this to, do so. let them know how you feel. also, schools most of the time have counselors and other trained professionals to help with such circumstances. if you feel like your teacher is the person you want to share this with, i would recommend asking for some of time with her/him to make sure you have privacy as you disclose this. most teachers have enough experience where they may refer you to someone who can better assist you to ensure your concerns are taken care of by someone with the resources and skills to do so. Good luck! I want to wish you the best on this situation and letting you know bringing this forward shows the enormous amount of strength you already posses.
