Oh I hear you loud and clear. Im 29 and the amount of trauma and grief and illness that has been packed into those years is almost unfathomable. I too throw my hands up in the air and have those "why me?" moments- or the "im so angry- this is unfair!" moments.
Im sorry to hear things have been so rough for you, but this is the advice i give and i hope it helps even just a little:
We are here. we have food in our bellies, roofs over our heads. Our homes arent war torn or in famine. We have avenues of help for our medical problems, be they physical or emotional. We have access 24hrs to help. So many people are far less fortunate- and to be honest, so many good people die too young. So when im tempted to have a pity party and a cry (which is sometimes totally necessary!) i think about the younger people in my life who have died and try and live each of MY days to the fullest, to honour and respect these people.
I pray you find some relief, you sound like you have been in the wars for a long time, and as a fellow 'younger' person who has spent a lifetime being ill, i really do get where you are coming from. its like- are there better days ahead? thats how i cope. i have to have faith that something better lies instore for me.
blessings and peace always,
Maz XX

Hi Angmichelle,

You are tired and exhausted. Then you need to rest. As in resting your mind. You need a break from all the thinking. As I am sure that is what you are doing.

Are you going to any counseling? I wonder if this might help you to cope better with whatever is going on in your life at this time.

Have you been to your doctor lately? You might want to get checked out in case anything physical is going on with you.

When I get feeling that way, I usually try to go for a walk to clear my head and just think of nothing except what is going on around me. That might do you good. Or meditaion. That is another good way to rest your mind.

I hope that you feel better soon. Take care...

Hugs, Karen

I've felt like life was worthless. Like I couldn't do anything. Already skinny, I lost 10 pounds. I was unable to function, couldn't go to classes, and almost dropped out.

God blessed me with a support system that helped get me the help I needed. So you can trust me when I tell you the following.

With therapy, appropriate medication and diet modification (yes, your diet may be causing your depression) and exercise, things will get better. They will. They will.

There is someone out there who will fall in love with you, if there isn't already. There is so much beauty in the world, so much hope, and even in the darkest of times there is hope. When the world is drenched in our despair, when there is no hope, the sight of the a single ray of sun can remind us what is out there.

That there is good. That there is beauty. And love.

Things will get better. But you have to get the help you need. And absolutely make sure to rule out physical issues for your depression. If you're in treatment and things aren't working, please read this post. It lists 10 ideas that might help treat your depression if it isn't responding to treatment already.

Try to eat something. Sometimes I have to force myself to eat and normally feel better. Grab an apple or a granola bar. I normally stop eating when I'm stressed or depressed. Since I don't eat much, I do take vitamins. I try to make the best out of my eating habits. I can eat the "fattening" foods without any guilt when I do out.

I have good days and bad ones. Today is not so hot, but it's almost over. Take one day at a time or even one minute at a time. Hope you feel better soon.
