Tonight I feel like nothing will never get better for me. I hate life and I wish it was over already. I’m ready for this torture to be over with

Totally understand...I am new here but seems others on here will understand how you're feeling too. And I'm thinking you are someone who's been through so much and would be able to help someone on here going through very hard times also, even if it's just to say you understand. Hope you made it through to fight another day.

My beloved mama said to me long ago 'I wouldn't wish depression on my worst enemy' I didn't understand it then, but now having been through it I understand. So, so unfair that we have to go through this and others do not...only benefit seems to me is that we understand each other like most others cannot. We have a different kind of strength, to be here and live another day.

It is really a horrible problem to deal with in life. It is really miserable. I have been fighting depression for years. It has become harder to deal with the older I get, and it is really miserable. Other people don't understand it. It has truly messed up my life and made much of it very painful. Really, I would not wish it on anyone. Only those who have suffered can understand. It makes for a very painful life.

Guys I am in the same situation. I feel I cant stand this shitty feeling anymore. I have been on antidepressants for many years and now they are causing inflammation to my body. I feel totally swollen when I walk. I have spent the last two days without my meds. I dont feel any pain in my body when I walk, but today around 5;oopm I started feeling terrible. I got panic attacks and the urgency to finish my life. So it is pretty clear that I depend on antidepressants but they are killing me. They are good for my mind but terrible for my body. I lost my job on May and I have sent thousand of resumes and got no response. I feel terrible, and as I get older I feel worst. I am scared of this life. I would love to be able to enjoy my life but I cant. I have too many problems, plus depression steals happiness. I dont know how long I would be able to stand this. In times like this I wonder where is GOD??????????

I feel exactly the same as Marianda. Exact same situation. Antidepressants don't work so well on my anymore, there are side-effects as well, but without them at all I really sink down low. Depression steals my happiness as well. Very difficult to withstand. I totally empathize. But what can we do? I suppose try some treatments for TRD, like ketamine, or even transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Very difficult. It is difficult to stop antidepressants abruptly, normally there are terrible withdrawal issues.
