Just looking for some advice,

Iv'e been getting feelings everyday now of not wanting to be here anymore not because its easier but because all the suffering would be put to an end. I really don't ever see myself getting better (iv'e tried counselling but didn't find it very helpful) and also been on different medications. I have a learning disability suffer from Depression and anxiety and really don't mix well with people which seems to be getting worse as i get older. I'm a very sensitive person who's just turned 25 but hardly have anything to show of it. I know this sounds like a woe is me kinda post and i know we are going through horrid times at present with the virus just wanted to see if anyone else has been in a similar position and can give me some hope.

Thanks

Hi,
Please see your GP again urgently for the feelings of not wanting to be here anymore.
It's important to seek help and have support.
If you feel worse tomorrow you can go to A/E, I know it's difficult in these times we're in.
I'm sorry you didn't find counselling helpful, it can often be finding the right therapist.
Some people need a combination of meds to help, please don't give up.
Here to listen anytime.
Hugs

Hey IM, I too see death as a way the suffering will end. For me at least it will most likely be at the end of my life. It is hard to see the point in suffering all day long, but even at such a low point in life there are still slight ups and downs. The ups won't make you feel like life is a walk in the park, but if you're lucky you can practice a hobby you still somewhat like or talk to a friend. Also if you want friends you have to venture out into the world. I am sure there are therapies which can help you develop social skills (i.e. autism related). At the moment these are tough times for people who have no-one to fall back on. So I encourage you to stay strong and possibly find people in a gaming community or online. I am 26 and when I was still healthy 2.5 years or so back I was doing well despite my recurring psychoses but at the moment I am happy that I can follow a low-impact creative writing course and see my friends now and then. Life can be tough, but we have to stay persistent, that's the quality of the river which makes it able to cut through stone. So live consciously and try and accept the pain.
