What do you do when your family doesn't love you and you have no one to really talk to and you're totally depressed and feeling hopeless. I am 50 years old and have never felt loved or really accepted by any one. But because I have never felt love from my family, I am sure I never recognized it from anyone else. I now understand this. My parents did the best that they knew how to do - but I am suffering from this now. I do not have insurance, so my resources for professional help is very limited. I don't think I'm suicidal, but I have no interest in continuing to live like this. I so need help and direction from someone. Please help me. I have no where else to turn. I just called the depression hotline, and received voice message. I don't know what else to do. Thanks for reading....

Hi there,
Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum.  I am glad that you came here.  Here are a couple of sites for depressed people, and they are free.
I have had members say that they are good sites, so maybe one of them can help you.  Do you have a pastor or somebody that you can talk to?  Often mental health facilities do have programs that can help you.  Or you can check with the Department of Human Services and see if you are eligible for any help.  Many people get help with mental health insurance of some sort through them.  I hope that you can recieve some resources and get the help that you need. 
If you talk to your doctor, they can often give you sample medications to help you.  So I would go and see a doctor and see about that.  They often have massive amounts of the antidepressants that can help you for a long time.  It gives you time to heal and hopefully get yourself into a situation where you can provide these things for yourself.
I hope that you start feeling better soon.  Do keep posting as this is a good place to come and just vent if you need to.  The members here are very supportive and caring.
Hugs, Karen

Hi invisibleme,

I am 16 years old and I really really understand what you are going through. My mum and Dad have never accepted me as their little girl. All my life I've been trodden down on, beaten up, told that I am a very bad girl and that I deserve to go to hell etc etc. I only pull through it every day because my mates and grandma help me out, so I see them all as my family now. I think as long as you have friends in your life who will stand by you and fight with you, then learning about what acceptance, loving and value is will be more easier to recognise. For me, I struggle to accept an adult's acceptance of love and understanding but I find it so easy to feel love and value off people my age. Its nice really for now but I'm scared of entering the big world for when I'm older and especially when I go to university. It will scare me but I have to be big and brave about it. I know you will be brave too.

Just know that I am here for you if you need to talk and everyone else here can help you too.

Many understanding hugs to you, arielle.

I have the same problem with family love and empathize with your situation. I am 10 years older than you and have been suffering from anxiety/depression by consuming my time with devotion to work and on and off alcholism. There is help for the uninsured and one way is to become "rated" by a local hospital to determine the scale you will pay on.
I avoided a pill by taking in too much bad advice found sometimes on the mental health sites. Turns out this "benzo" has given me days of true peace, something I have not felt for long.
I am financially strapped and may lose everything by June yet I can get up and have a fufilling day without spending too much time on what may be.
Hope, I didn't hijack your post but I wanted to emphasize what finding a good psychiatrist and taking their advice has done for me.
