HI deadinside,

Your post isn't pathetic. There are a lot of londly people here. So you fit right in. Learning to be happy when alone is a big thing. It isn't easy, but it can be done. First we have to learn to like ourselves. That can be done with ocunseling or reading some good books. One is called "feeling good" by dr. David Burns. I suggest you read it. You can find it on amazon really cheap. I bought a used one.

I rewally hope that you feel better soon. Keep posting too.

Hugs, Karen

thank you getting by, i think i might be beyond help when it comes to liking myself but i'll see what i can do its just kinda sad that i have met so many different people and in all these years there is only one i kept in contact with which honestly reflects poorly on me and i'll try to see if i can find that book though it is ingrained into my psyche that everyone hates me and there is good reason for that pity

Self-esteem issues seem to be the greatest part of your problem, Dead Inside. Psychotherapy is the appropriate method to begin the search for your real self. Once you see that you have a valuable contribution to make to life, your level of depression may lift.

Medications today are very helpful in maintaining the chemical balance necessary to stabilize feelings--a second reason for you to seek psychiatric help as soon as you can.

I notice that you use small letters for "I" each time you type it. Are you possibly an alcoholic? If so, that's a third reason to seek psychiatric assistance. Alcohol makes depression worse (and caffeine does also). Both of those need to be eliminated from the diet of a person who has depression (or bipolar illness). That information is not my own; it's a directive given to me as part of an order to maintain a
strong chemical balance of the brain neurotransmitters.

Discussion of alcoholism is a subject for another day, but one that is
important in the life of anyone who uses and needs alcohol to find relief from depresson. Chances are that you have many positive qualities and talents that need simply to be accepted by you. Then begin your work to bring them to the forefront. There's an excellent little book called "Keep It Simple" which is based on the daily meditations of a person who was reared in a dysfunctional family. It may give you some desire to rid depression from your life. (I think the writer may have been reared in a family that drove her to alcoholism at some point in her life.)

Gettingby has given you good advice. I can add only that I think her
suggestions are right on target.

Take care.

thank you for the post, my entire outlook on life and the way i judge myself is warped though, so there is alot of work i will have to do in that way but i guess i should seek help i hate doctors but i should get over that

one of my few good qualities is that i dont drink i guess my english just sucks :P i know that i will get addicted and depression and alcohol do not mix so thats why i avoid it like the plague, i did not know that caffeine made it worse though i do have too much caffeine.

thank you so much for the help i promised my friend that i would seek help within 3 weeks if things do not improve so i am doing everything possible to get better so i dont have to go to the doctors but if things dont get better than i have to get help cause i promised, nothing wrong with getting help but i just dont want to get help from doctors

I hope you get along well, Dead Inside, and that you will see a doctor
if things do not work as you had hoped.

Take care of yourself first.
