I know how you are feeling. Completely hopeless. But sweetie, it does get better. Just not always in our timeframe. But for some reason, you will learn from your dispair. There is a reason for everything, even though we can't see it at the time. Everything is a learning experience.
There is a site that I was told about awhile back called www.livinglifetothefull.com
I can't remember all it entailed, but it seems that it was a good site. It might help you. There is also
http://moodgym.anu.edu.au/welcome I believe that you may find this helpful too.
There is a good book called Feeling Good by Dr.David Burns. That could be something that you may find helpful to read. Generally I advise counseling too. I find that it is very helpful and keeps me in check with my life. It really makes me think about things and the meaning of things. If you aren't going already, I strongly advise it. There is a life out there for you. You are at a standstill it seems. You feel you should be moving forward. I myself do take life one day at a time, but I have fibromyalgia and that is all I can do. I can't even make plans for the next day as I never know how I am going to feel. But I am laid back, I let life come to me. I guess we are all different and want different things out of life.
Have you thought about taking a class of some sort? It would get you out and you would be doing something that you enjoy and meeting new people. Just a thought.
You will find on here too that you can make friends. I have. And it is fun. It gives a person something to look forward to each day. Giving and receiving emails. Life is full of mysteries. So never give up. Things can change at the drop of a hat. For the better even.
Best wishes to you. I hope that you had a happy holiday today.
