I'm 19 and lately I've been seriously. All I read on the internet is for depressed people to get therapy, take up a hobby, talk to a family member, etc. How the hell is that going to make a difference? I have a job and play a sport, but that doesn't make me any happier. I am bored 24/7 and it's driving me insane. I have no desire to go to college...why should I? So I can be stressed out for 4 years, graduate, find another crapty job that just pays more?
The only two people that I reallly cared for in my life are gone so how can anything else matter?

I have no desire to get married later in my life and have a family. I don't see how having a family can bring joy into a persons life. I just don't feel that way about anything anymore. When you think of it, everything we do is pointless. I am not passionate about a darn thing. There's absolutely nothing I look forward to/nothing

So please, if there is some secret to life that I do not know, let me know.

have you thought about seeing your doctor for an assessment for depression. medication and therapy turns a lot of that negative thinking around, i know i've been there and plus some. take one day at a time versus1888. you have done well and coming here and posting, more people will post soon. life can suck, i am doing it tough myself and i am a lot older than you, so age has no barrier to feeling dowm/depressed etc. don't give up, we care about you. sending you much healing compassion. jamie.

please remember that you are a precious human being of this earth with gifts and talents unique to only you. at the moment they are under cover, but once you start feeling better they will come back out again. Please seek immediate assistance if you feel at risk. help is out there, it truely is. keep posting. you have been brave in sharing your situation. keep being brave. with much healing compassion, jamie

You really need to see a doctor if you are feeling this way. We can be happy and have things to enjoy. I am sorry for the way that you feel right now. I know, everythingg feels hopeless. But it isn't. Please see a doctor and get on some meds to help you.
