First of all, nobody has forgotten you. We have all been wondering how you have been doing. It is very exciting to be able to hear from you. Thanks for checking in. I have read a lot of your posts and I know how you have struggled.
Please don't think of yourself as worthless. We all go what you are going through, not exactly but we all have the same feelings that you have. And believe me, it isn't fun. But don't dispair, things will get better.
Life is full of these bumps in the road, the feeling of being worthless and the fatigue of trying and trying over and over again. But as life goes on, you learn to accept the difficult times and it does get easier. I was feeling really down today and then when I came to the forum, I felt better. But honestly I must say, I need to learn to take my own advice. I need to cheer up too. So I know it is easier said than done. But I try to look for something positive in every day. It is there, but we have to recognise it. And sometimes we really have to struggle to see it. But you and I can find that and turn things around. So let's not give up. Keep posting and I know that we can help you to see that you are a wonderful kind person and you are a lot stronger than you think.
So let's both try to keep things on a positive note and cheer eachother up today. I hope that your day gets better and that you feel better.
Hey Dark,Hi, this is Kitt and I remember you. :) Please know that you are not alone in feeling like you try and do all the things you know will help you but there are times when it seems useless. That is the time you must reach down way inside you and find that extra bit of strength and remind yourself that you are better.
You have come a long way since your first started talking to us. You will get better but please be kind to yourself. Reaching a balance in your mental health is a learning process. At times, you may tip the balance too much in one direction and have to find your footing again. Remember we are here, so take our hand and let us help you.
You can always come here for your dose of good old family caring and sharing. The members here care for you and will support you as you know.
Keep talking to us if it helps, we do not judge. Take care.

Hi there Dark...Sad to think that any one of us has to have these kinda feelings..been there done that too - it's a ghastly place to be..
But the good news is that there is always hope - thank goodness
Wondering if you are on meds for depression..if not how about seeing your doc and discussing the option..and if you are how about having them reassessed - maybe time for adjustment or new ones..meds can make a huge difference to getting thru the rough patches life throws at us
Keep posting..love to hear back from you.
I so agree with Shy, this is not something you cause to happen but you do have to learn skills to deal with it. I have had depression for 28 years now. I have been on meds most of that time.
How proud I am of Shy for being med free. I don't know if I will ever get to that but I do lead a good life and when the depression sneaks up on me I kick it to the curb and fight back.
You know we care so keep posting.Kitt
