Horrible depressive episode won't seem to end.

User Profile
I know that theres always an end to mania and depression and a beginning for remission but lately I see no end to this depression I feel. For thelast month I have felt like the scum of the earth with no real quality or purpose. I keep having what seems like the most negative thought patterns ever. I've reached the point that I will do anything to escape these feelings. If im not drinking to escape I'm sleeping to escape or starving to escape. I know suicide is irrational but I beginning not to care. I know it wouldnt be a gun to the head but rather going on a drinking binge with no end in sight.
