Hi not sure if im putting this in the right section. Just found this site.
Not sure weather im looking for advice or help or just need to say what i feel to other people in same situation.
Basically ive got to a point in life where i simply genuinely cannot see the point of carrying on living. All i do is go to work come home sleep go to work, i have dealt with depression and anxiety for a long time i have no partner and no kids to stay alive for and many other things that make me feel like this and the worst part for me sometimes is i genuinely dont feel sad about this thought i feel more sad about carrying on my pointless existence and every day the thought of just ending it feels more and more like it will be the right thing to do i just always feel numb and absolutely useless i just cant see what im battling this depression and anxiety for when it will be easier to just end it quietly and just dissapear.

I was just the same as you, i attempted suicide and the doctors saved me, I don't know what for because at the time i felt worthless and totaly unimpressed with world.
Now i am well i just want live, there are just so many things to live for, where i work I had so many people asking where i was and now i am back working all the people are glad to see me.
who would have thought i was usefull?
So I do hope you will see everybody is wanted in this world no matter how it seems at the present.
All the best Woolie.

I would 100% advise you to talk to your doctor about this if you haven’t yet. It can get so much better with some help.

Hey Joe, I know exactly what you mean when you say you don't feel sad about it, thinking about ways of killing myself use to be the only thing that would make me feel calm and at peace, I guess it was just knowing I had a way out. But it's not healthy to think this way, you need to distract yourself with other things and break the monotony.

If you're into gaming, I'm on xBox and Steam, I would be more than happy to connect with you on there maybe play a few games and maybe even have a chat whilst we do if you're up to it.

Sometimes it is not us that is the problem, bur the world. There are a lot of bad things in the world and depression is a natural reaction to that, but there is a point to be here, often in the very small things. I would start with a tasty meal or a nice bath - something that can appeal to your senses - there is joy here.
