I always wonder, all those out there. With depression. I've had it all my life. I feel alone and I hide by sleeping.. I get sad easy just by a simple word. I never want to upset anyone. And I'm always saying sorry. I think I might be bad for my own self. I know I hate myself, which isn't good. But I have all my life. Is there something wrong with me? Is it that bad to hate myself if I love everyone around me? I always feel these pains in my chest.. how about you?

Its bad to hate yourself. Lots of people grow up with depression and don't know what to do. Then they finally say this is enough. I'm going to the doctor. Then they embark on a program to feel better.
Sounds like you have very low self esteem. It can be changed.
Chest pains, or any pains can be a symptom of anything, including depression. Your body is telling you something.
Go to your reg doctor and get the chest pains checked out. Then be sure to tell them you are sleeping all the time, and depressed. Ask them to give you a prescription, and a referral to a therapist. In the time it takes to get the referral, the meds may be helping enough so you are strong enough to listen to what the therapist is saying, and take the advice.
It is an ongoing process to strengthen you and help you see yourself accurately.
You seem like a sweet, sincere woman. You have a right to be happy.
Keep posting if necessary.

Will be thinking of you. Make up your mind to get help.

Welcome to HealingWell.  I am so glad you found us. 

Carmy , I am willing to bet a hundred dollars that if I met you, I'd find you to be a delightful young woman. I am certain  there are lots of people who genuinely and honestly think so.

The trouble is that YOU don't. Your destructive beliefs about yourself are trying to damage you.  DON'T LET THEM! Fight back!

Work on learning to improve your self esteem my friend and you will soon feel good about who you are. 

Gentle Hugs,

Hi Carmy,
Firstly I too get anxiety attacks more like a feeling of being breathless I than hide myself by sleeping for days. I feel so much similar to what you feel. Apologising to people loving everyone and feeling like being the bad egg in the lot.
But you know on this forum I have realised that there's so much more pain out there and everyone here has some thing worse happening to them making them feel depressed. In a way I get encouraged by it the strength we all have here should be the reason to feel good about ourself.
I won't advice you but would say that you are not alone. And we can cope with this !

I know its bad to hate myself, I again, its hard not too. Yes, when I was younger my mother already had me go to the doctor and also a therapist. Although, when I was younger I hadn't understand it well, and now I do. I've went to the doctor and they have me on some anti depressens, which although I don't want to take, I know it's best I do, because the doctor only wants to help me. I have told the doctor about my chest pains...but he really didn't say anything about it. I'll tell him about my sleeping all the time, but I don't know what he'd do. I think that the reason it takes time is so the meds can kick in. And I'll be seeing my doctor in about 2 more months. By then I'm sure, I'll be good enough for a therapist again. I'll try to take the advise, but sometimes I feel like no one care understand me. I mean sure I can see that there are many people with the same problems. But then again we are all still different. I hope I can warm up to the therapist though. I would like that. Thanks, although I still can't see my sweetness, I know I have a right to be happy.
I'll think of you too. I have already made up my mind. The thing is my dad has more control over me... and its a thing he doesn't understand.
