Are these signs of major depression?

Just a note: (I tried talking to my mom to get me on anti-depressants because I told her I was still very depressed, she said I didnt need them, so I can't talk to my doctor about it.)
Recently, about a month ago, I started feeling more depressed than usual. I lost a lot of weight, currently weighing 140 pounds when I was 155 about two weeks ago. I keep thinking the same thoughts over and over again, the thoughts of death and feeling unloved. I'm not going to commit suicide, because death is a scary thing to me. I almost did a month ago when my parents were fighting but the thought stopped me. I have panic attacks at the thoughts of certain things or certain actions that happen, I also have signs of anorexia, a question I asked back in March, and people said I have signs of it. Ive also stopped sleeping. I can't sleep at night, I havent had good rest in weeks. Whenever I'm with my friends, if they don't include me I isolate myself from them, I don't talk and its hard to not choke on a cry. I know the majority of the people on this website are 9-16, but I just need some help. I can't go to a doctor or she'll get suspicious and my mom's afraid she'd do something. There's no certain causes, ive just felt this way recently and these things have happened.

It's likely.
Take some depression tests online (go for professional ones and not qfeast ones) and convince your mom to let you see a therapist. Showing her the results of your screenings may help. I recommend looking up positive things online. Even if you're not sure if you have depression, they might help you think more optimistically.

Possibly. Talk to your parents about it, and see if you can get a therapist, then you'll know for sure if you could be depressed

I have some advise for you
Just try and eat some more than you already do and if you are on anti depressants try really hard to ween off of them and also don't be scared to talk to a parent or friend always remember your friends and family love you and most likely try there hardest to include you and always remember it's never too late to find a rolmodel or modules to help you through things in life listen to happy music and try clubs or maybe sports to help you focus on the good See More▼

I half understand how you are feeling. I've had thoughts of suicide and sometimes I cry myself to sleep. It's always okay to tell someone, and I believe your mom shouldn't be holding you back from telling your doctor. The more isolated you feel, the more miserable you are. Things will just get worse if you don't tell someone that you believe can help you. Honestly, even telling your friends can make you feel better. Trust me, I got into a deep conversation with one of my friends See More▼

Weight loss is common throughout the stages of depression--changes of appetite can cause sudden weight loss and lack of vital energy that is useful amongst the passing days. Sadness and believing that you aren't worthy is also a common sign of depression, it can also lead to the drop of energy and the reoccurring thoughts that vary from negative to severe thoughts of suicidal actions. Don't take suicide as a necessary precaution to end the overwhelming events that take place in See More▼

Well that's not really the symptoms but suicidal thoughts are the one of them, I am diagnosed with depression and the symptoms are feelings of sadness, loss of interest, changes in appetite, decreased energy level, and thoughts of suicide.

They don't really put over aggressiveness as a sign when you get the diagnosis and put it on paper, but yes you do get over aggressive when you are depressed, but it depends on the person.

Yeah,
And btw, the reason you may not be allowed on anti depressants is age. It could screw up hormones and make it worse.
