I hate Depression

I feel so hopeless. I feel like I just wanna give up on everything. I have good days and bad, but recently nothing is making me feel better. I feel so alone, like I have no one. My life is a mess. I’m just so depressed. I just feel so sad I can’t handle it. I don’t want to feel like this anymore. I’m fighting those urges to just end everything. I am not gonna do that, but I have those feelings. And it sucks. I don’t know what to do.

AlanaS, when the helpless, hopeless emotions get too strong it is more than time to seek out professional help. A little medication might make a difference as well as therapy in helping you find the right path to take in solving some of your overwhelming issues in life Until you do take that step, your thoughts will keep ruminating throughout your mind bringing you down further each day. This forum will help support and comfort you but the main goal right now is to keep you safe from your own thoughts that only a professional can help with. Keep coming back to the forum we understand your emotional pain. xx

Hello, I really like Agora1's reply, those are my thoughts, You need professional help, start by talking to your Dr. and if needed a therapist and possibly a Psychiatrist. Feel no shame or fear, I have been seeing therapists of and on for 30 years, and a Psychiatrist when needed. You probably need medication, there will be some side effects but they pass. We are here and you can talk to us. Sending Love, courage and peace. Sprinkle 1

No doubt about it, depression is a huge pain in the neck. You're having a lot of symptoms right now. It's like the flu, only instead of aching bones and coughing your head off, you're feeling emotionally awful and having terrible thoughts running through your head. That is just your depression doing its thing. I'm with the others - get professional help asap. The sooner you do, the better you will feel. You may realize your life is not such a mess, or you may be able to think more clearly about how to make it better.

I send you the very best wishes for feeling better. Please take good care of yourself. We are here for you whenever you want to talk.

I hate to hear of your struggle. I have been feeling pretty good lately but then a lot of stress at work came up but settled back down. Now I don't feel like getting out of bed and feel hopeless again. I know things were good once but I just can't shake the feelings. I take meds but now just need to do the extra work to get back up. I hate depression too but I am glad there are people that understand it's horrors. Thanks for posting and being honest.
