I know it's a downer to read, but I feel it a lot of the time.

I really shouldn't though-I've got a loving family, an amazing girlfriend, a decent job, and I'm all a full ride scholarship to my college.

But I feel worthless all the time. I don't know if I want to live or die anymore.

suicide is never the way to go! You have so much going out for you!
You have a job! In this recession people are losing thier jobs like crazy
you should feel proud and happy to be able to support yourself.
You also have a amazing girlfriend! Imagine what would happen to her her if you died? What if she decided she couldn't go on without you? Would you want that for her?
You also have full scholorship! That is one of the most amazing things that can happen! People or going into debt or even dropping out because they can't pay for it! You have both, a scholorship at a college and a job!
You have almost the 3 most important things in the world( someone to be with , a job, and a education) and you feel worthless?

I'm sorry if I havnt helped
this was my First reply I'm a while!

Hey Kidthir13en

Welcome to the Healing Well Depression Forum.

I totally agree with Butterflys, you have it all, why would you want to throw it away? Have you tried counselling? It helps to speak to someone who is trained to deal with feelings similar to what you're experiencing. I think you should make an appointment with your doctor also and tell him how you are feeling and why.

Remember you are amongst friends here on this forum and we all care about you, so please seek some help now and post again to let us know how you are going.

My minister taught me a powerful coping mechnamism for depression. I feel down all the time too. But I do reverse physcology basically on myself. Like for you:

If I kill myself what is my girlfriend going to think? That I don't love her enough? That I am not worthy of her?

I have a motherless 6 year old I play "mom" with (with permission from dad of course). So I tell myself: What will Dakota think? Will he think that I do not love him enough? Will he be mad at me? What will happen to him? Who's going to protect him and love him like I do? Who's going to take him to the park and read bedtime stories? Who's going to go on school field trips? Will he miss me? How will this hurt Dakota?

I realize when I think like that, I have someone depending on me. I also have a cat, whom I pet constantly, I talk to, etc. The cat is solely dependent on me.
