    I think I need help, but what sort of help, I don't know.

    Life has in many ways become quite bleak for me. Sleep, work, eat, watch tv, sleep, rinse, repeat, weekend. Same day in day out. I have no friends. Not that I see outside of work anyway. I don't like going out. I don't like the way I look and don't feel confident walking out the door. I don't...

    "I want to ... live!"

    Since this is the "Getting Your Life Back!" section of the forum. I thought I'd comment a bit about what I feel about "life" and getting it back. I've known it to be the case that a lot of people feel so low or depressed etc that they feel that life itself is so terrible. They would have...

    I no longer care about anything?

    I've promised myself that I wouldn't write out an essay so I'll try and keep this question shortish and simple. I no longer care for anything, interactions with other people depresses me, it drains me. It's because everything is predictable to me. The past 12 months my entire mindset/view on...

    How long?

    Let's get depressing. :/

    I just feel like shit really. Like honestly, I just want to crawl somewhere and die. I wish I was dead. This comes in "ebbs and flows". It's been better for a while until the last few weeks. Now all I want to do is lay down and not get up. The only thing that kept me alive this long is having...
