I’ve suffered with depression for years but recently I’ve been going downhill fast, again. I’m so bored of life. I feel so alone despite having my family and mental health team try to help me. I have no motivation to do anything and I’m so done with this now. I’m currently in the process of switching antidepressants but I’m losing hope that anything is going to, or can help me. I self-harm and recently have been self harming every night. I just don’t know what to do.

Hi
Switching antidepressants can cause havoc with your mind in my experience. Weaning off one and then onto another takes time.
I can also relate to the being bored of life thing. Depression can do that to you. It can just suck the life out of you.
Talking really helps this forum has really helped me in my times of need

I think you have to fight it L1F to be honest
and being in the UK
there should be some resources available for you
if you start with asking your gp about it

I'm so sorry to hear of your current and past struggles :hug: Like others' have said talking really can make a difference, especially with positive people. It's important to keep all of your Support Teams in the loop with how you are feeling and the causes there-of. As you get things off your chest, you are also allowing other people into your World and you shouldn't feel quite so alone and isolated. It may even boost your self-esteem a little, and allow others to come up with positive steps to steer you onto a brighter course. I wonder if anything has happened recently to trigger how you are feeling right now :hug:

Music helps me. Music therapy or listening to good and uplifting songs in youtube makes me feel and think better.

Also doing what I love to do which is writing helps me too. What do you love to do? What are you good at? Is it cooking, baking, gardening, doing arts and crafts? Do it and it will make you happy and even be successful.

There will be better days for you. Think and believ it.
