Being good at something doesn't mean that it's a good choice for a career. Even if you score well, you should seriously question your choice of study if you find yourself feeling depressed most of the time. You might also want to consult a professional to help you determine whether it's computer science that gets you down, or something completely unrelated. This is important for you to address quickly and decisively; depression is a serious illness, often entirely treatable, that can destroy lives if allowed to run unchecked.

I, for instance, am extremely good with numbers, and would do - have done - very well in Accounting functions. But I hate accounting, and wouldn't consider a career in that field. But it wouldn't make me depressed, either. I'd just find something about it to enjoy until I could find another position. I doubt very much that it's just computer science that's making you depressed...
