Like a lot of other people, I'm new to the site. I've basically run out of places to go, and feeling the need to sign up with a bunch of different sites like these isn't particularly making me feel any better, but there isn't really anywhere else to turn to. I know a lot of people complain about feeling "alone" and perhaps everyone goes through it sometime ... but my depression has gotten so much worse over the past few years and so many people have just vanished out of my life that I don't think I can take it any longer. I'm supposed to be leaving for college in exactly one month and I almost feel like I don't want to make my parents waste the money . And there's absolutely no one I have to talk to. Everyone I get close to leaves me. They use me to get out all there problems, I'm basically everyone else's therapists and then when I need someone the most they disappear. Story of my life. . If anyone else was in my shoes they'd probably be happy. Why am I so messed up? Why can't I just be happy? Why can't I find a purpose in life? -- I guess these are a lot of other people's questions too. But it doesn't help me to feel any less alone, when I'm still sitting here, in my room, without a friend in the world who'd care to listen and I don't know what I did to deserve it.
