I feel like that a lot too. Especially at night. I get this feeling that I'm all alone, no matter how many people are there with me and that no matter what nothing can ever change. I feel like I'm stuck in this sand trap of depression and that nothing will ever make it go away. And even if those feelings were to subside it makes me angry, scared, and even more depressed to know that because I am bipolar I'll be stuck in this same position numerous times throughout my life.

My mother is an alcoholic who had a brain tumor and surgery 3 times. My father is a doctor who cheats on her and seems to be a sex addict. I'm an only child. I'm 18 years old and trying to get my own life figured out. Some nights I just feel so empty and lonely that I give into binging on loads if food to literally make the emptiness go away. some nights I end up abusing sleeping pills to get me to just rest. I have developed a repetitive cycle of compulsive behaviors throughout the day and I just don't see it as normal or healthy. I wish things weren't like this. I still have my whole life ahead of me yet I feel stuck in this black hole where I'm just so damn different from everyone else I know. I wish things werwbt like this. I wish my parents were normal. It would be nice to feel normal once in a while. I just wish I could change things but there's only so much I have control over...

I have these feelings as well, especially the feeling of emptiness. I am bipolar 2 and especially after experiencing a "good" mood aka hypo-manic(which is rare), I feel completely empty and void of any positive emotions. I see the feeling of hypo-manic as my desired normal happy state, but it's close to impossible to keep this feeling. Therapy does help and I recommend that you do seek professional help, but don't worry because they won't lock you up without your consent.
I have also been very afraid at night, sometimes staying up for long periods to avoid it, which makes things worse. But the only way I have been able to fix this problem so far is through medication, like anti-psychotics.
