I really dont know where to begin, Ive been feeling so down from about 6 months ago, everything is spiraling out of control i feel. i lost my job, only having for a month, the job wasnt for me at all, then i was told that cant join any of the armed forces becuase of medical reasons, i was depressed for about 3 months when i was trying to pass my driving test a year before, and because of that im not allowed to join the army until 4 years have gone by without needing any more help for depression and until all my orthodontic work is done ( at least 2 years ive been told)
I've tried really hard to find a job, every single application i have sent has either been met with no response or sorry you are over/under qualified for this job.
i feel completely useless.
my entire family is a mess right now, im worried about my mum who was made redundant not to long ago and cant find a job for the same reasons as me, i cant ask her for help as it just annoys her and doesnt want to hear it. my dad isnt much help and neither is the rest of my family.
I really dont know who to turn to, i have no friends, everyone hates me,
another thing i think im paranoid or am i just going insane? I have no idea what to think or believe. Is there no help for me? Should i really just give up and die, because that i what think everyone on this planet wants, a world were i dont exhist.
Steve, I understand that you are going through a really difficult time right now. Based on what you describe, it is highly likely that you are still suffering from depression and now are having suicidal thoughts. You may not be aware that there are many people who struggle with depression and there is help available. Because of the strong statements in your question indicating feelings of hopelessness, I recommend that you go to your local emergency room immediately or call for transport to one. Going to the hospital will enable you to get a proper diagnosis and treatment. It is likely that therapy will be recommended for you. If you are still in touch with your therapist and psychiatrist and felt that you had a good relationship with them, you may want to call them when you go to the hospital so they can be involved in your care.
ive battled depression for 18 years and it makes your thoughts negative.
i lost a job before and i know how hard it is looking for one with no avail. i lot of people is going through this right now, and i want you to be strong and hang in there. you have to try to have a positive attitude about everything.
it is disappointing now hearing anything when you apply for a job, but push on, it only takes one employer to like you. dont allow the stress to show on your face.
Hi Steve I'm going through a really bad time to at the moment. I was made redundant in August 09 it was a job I loved to do. I was so happy about everything before I know just how hard it is finding work as I'm still looking now in December. It seems no one cares or understands you when you'r feeling down and stressed out 24/7 you still need to think positive even tho it's hard to do.
