 feel like I am nothing. I have nothing to live for, nothing to look forward to, nothing good going on in my life right now, chronic pain, depression, illness, illness, illness. Everyones given up on my, saying I'm just crazy. I am 21 and living the life of an 80 yearold. I'm tired, so tired I don't know how much more I can take. I'm tired of being knocked down and having no one to help  my up, but rather I just keep getting kicked down, over and over. This is no live, this is Hell. I want to go HOME to my Jesus. I'm just so tired and ready to give up.
I know that dieing isn't an option, I just don't know what to do. I want to be happy. Thats all I want. I'm not begging for riches, or things like that, just to be happy and healthy, and be a successful, contributing member of society.

Hi AngMichelle, I am so sorry for what your suffering...please know your not alone.  Chronic pain and illness intensifies depression to extreme levels I know and have been there myself.  Please talk to your doctor about how your feeling.  There are many options out there that can help and as you know we are always here for you.  I am posting a few links below for you just incase you feel that you may need them...Hang in there

You are in very deep with the illness. It is so hard to get out of the hole.
And it still amazes me how people seem to kick you when you are down.
But we learn how to cover up the illness so most people do not even have a clue.
Life is so overwhelming. I wonder how we make it.
Do you have a friend that you trust? Someone that can at least be by your side to listen?
I know you probably feel like you have no one right now,or no one understands. But if you really think about it there is probably someone that has been reaching out to you and you have just missed the signs.
Use this board,it helps alot too.
Keep your head up you can beat this disease!

Remember, honey -- we're here for you! If you need someone to listen to you vent, to complain, to talk about all the pain you're feeling or the bad things that are happening...we are most definitely here for you. And we're here, too, if you want to talk about those little things that make you smile -- because believe me, they're still there. I think almost all of us have been in your shoes...some of us may be there now (I know there are times when I certainly feel like life's not worth living)...so we know what you're going through. You are -not- alone, AngMichelle. Remember that. We're a community, and we want to support and encourage you...

Hi, Ang -- sorry you are having such a tough time right now.
Couple of questions: 
Tell us about your physical illness, are you receiving appropriate treatment?  When we are overwhelmed with the physical, it's hard to acknowledge much good in our lives. 
Is there AnyThing you look forward to, no matter how unlikely it seems at the moment?  I'm sure you expected life to be different at your age, but here you are ... and we are right here to listen and support whenever you need us. 
Is there one tiny little thing you can do today to make your life nicer, just for today?  For me, it'd be a double chocolate! milkshake, without my diabetis doc wagging his finger at me or my daughter telling me I couldn't have it.  I know that's not gonna happen, but a glass of skim milk with sugar free chocolate syrup is a real possibility.  Now... I just gotta get up and make that something good for myself.
Look forward to hearing back from you ... :-)
