Lately I've been wondering if I have depression, but I think it's because I want to be diagnosed with depression. The reason I want this is because I want a reason to feel the way I do. I thought about seeing someone professional about it but I just feel that my issues are worthless and that I would be wasting their time when they could be helping some one with actual problems. I feel like I would just be wasting your time now just by making you read this.

I have a good life and I'm glad for it but I'm not happy with myself. I've been drinking a lot recently and it seems to be getting worse. I'm drinking as I'm writing this. I've been drinking at college and spend most nights drinking whisky on my own. At first I used to drink so my mind wouldn't over analyse everything but now I like the thought that drinking too much isn't good for me. However, the next morning it makes me feel more crap about myself but I still do the same later that night.


I have little motivation in things I do. I don't enjoy college anymore and I just feel so excluded from everyone when I am there.

I don't know. I feel like I'm being pathetic by being like this as there is nothing wrong with my life. What do you guys think?

Hi Acornalfie,

I had to edit your post as we aren't allowed to discuss self harm. But since you are doing it, I have to say I think you should talk to somebody about your problems. Your escessive drinking is only going to make you depressed if you aren't already.

It is obvious that you have some issues going on. And your problems merrit help. You are worthy of help. Your problems are real. I highly suggest talking to your doc about this and about seeing a therapist. Stop drinking and study in college. Don't waste your time drinking. You are there for a reason and that is your future. You don't want to mess that up. Jobs are scarce. Hard to get these days. Do something positive with your life.

Hugs, Karen
