I am new to this support group. I guess my question is, why is depression so painful? I literally feel like its trying to kill me everyday. It's been months since i've felt like my normal self. My therapist tells me that i am not alone but i everyday i feel like an alien on this planet. Other people with depression are fortunate enough to have some sort of support system (Family/Friends) Etc. Everyone i use to have in my life are gone. I walk around every single day in fear of people. I fell like i don't belong on planet earth. I have a beautiful son who is the reason why i am still here but i feel like he deserves another mother better than me. I feel like i am so weak that i am unable to be a good mother to him. Anyways, will this feeling ever go away?
