I have a 12 year long history with depression and anxiety. I have good spells and bad spells and I am currently going through a bad spell. I have had to get a new career in order to help my depression as I have been suicidal and the high pressure environment that I was in wasn't helping.
Although I am on the mend, I still have down days where I need to vent to friends and it just helps to have someone to speak to. I try to talk to my friend but she doesn't understand what I am going through. She got mad when I told her that I was suicidal and tells me to 'snap out of it'. She thinks that she is helping me by being honest and telling me that I'm too negative all of the time. It is extremely upsetting when you can't even talk to your best friend.
It's turned me against all of my friends and I am scared to talk to anybody about my problems in case they hurt me in this way again.
I feel so alone and that I have no friends who understand me
Anybody else have this problem?
