I have never used one of these sites before, but I don't know where else to turn and need an outlet. I suffer from depression and anxiety and take Celexa for it. I live alone and lately it has really been getting to me. I am almost 30 and all of my friends are married and having kids. I keep wondering what is wrong with me and why nobody loves me. I can't talk to my friends because they don't understand. I can't go see a psychologist because my health insurance won't cover it. I am a hard working caring person and I feel like I get taken advantage of by people because they know that I will never turn my back on anyone that I ever considered a friend. For the past few months I have been making stupid decisions like hooking up with an ex just to feel cared about for a little while. But afterward I just feel worthless. I feel like I let myself be used and I don't even have enough self respect to stop it from happening. All I want to do is sleep my life away. I am not suicidal or anything like that, but I often wonder what the point is of getting up every day. If I stay in bed with the phone and computer off then I can't make dumb decisions. I feel like I have hit rock bottom and don't even know who I am anymore.View Thread
I know you posted a few days ago, but I just saw this. I too have trouble getting myself to do anything, even the things I know I need to do. I just sit here or sleep....you are not alone! I wish that I could give you a magic cure, but I'm not sure what to recommend. I don't know what works. I just want you to know that I know how you feel and am sorry that you are feeling down.View Thread
Thanks for your reply. I have bumped my meds up, but am still feeling crappy. I have so much to be grateful for and I know that, but I am feeling so alone. Sadly, last night I let it all take over and cut myself which is something I haven't done in years. I just didn't know what else to do. I used to have self respect...I'm not sure where it went. It is helpful to know that I am not the only one who has felt this way.View Thread
