Hi, would you like to talk about it.>?
which part? the struggle or the out option?

not sure what to say, I just not coping with my life right now, stuck in amassive rut and feeling very unwated, unloved and not sure which way to move/turn to make myself feel any better... as for the Out option, I'm not feeling safe, its been a long time since i have felt so unstable and feeling like i could (but have not for ages) hurt myself.

thanks for the reply.

Sometimes talking about something helps. What's going on?

feeling left out whith whats going on around with family, struggling with debt and my depression is really poor right now.. just not with it at the mo, not sure how to reach out as I don't seem to get what I need or want. Its a case of take the pills and you'll be ok, which I'm not. I hate myself, I hate this world. I'm lost.

Oof. That's a nasty mix, as all those problems feed off each other. Debt is always a hard one, it can seem so overwhelming. Family problems are also hard, especially with the holidays coming when the expectation is a bright, cheerful, loving family. Depression can magnify the problems and sap the energy needed to fix them.

Do you have friends that you can trust enough to talk about your family problems? Is there an ally who is fairly level headed in the family?

Can you call the people you owe money to and work out a payment plan?

And is there anything that gives you comfort right now? Is there any action that gives you a bit of a boost to fight off the low energy long enough to make a little headway with family and debt? It doesn't have to be all at once, it can be baby steps at a time.

thanks am I struggling with a lot right now, I don't have any real family I can trust enough to talk about others with and my fears, as for friends, I have avery small group of friends which right now isn't really helping in anyway shape or form. so I do feel very alone, me vrs the rest of the world.

What comes to mind is;
I LOVE MY DOG!
It’s almost like she knows.
write down on paper all the things you used to love. is it time to adjust meds?
