I sleep all the time. Never want to get out of bed. I am depressed and sad and lonely and just don't have the energy to get out of bed. I work full time and that is the only time I can every get out of bed. My family doesn't even understand what depression is, they think people can just snap out of depression. I support 8 adult members of my family. My children, a sibling and my mother. I work a lot and feel like I am being eaten alive by my family. No one else works or contributes. No one appreciates or understands either.

2 months ago, I attempted suicide. I scared my children to death which I will forever regret AND I lost my wonderful boyfriend of the past year. He just couldn't get over what I tried to do, he doesn't understand depression at all,,,,

I feel so lonely and alone and do not have the capacity or energy to make friends, I haven't had a friend in 20 years. I am so afraid

You are supporting eight people and you don't have a friend? I would feel exhausted too! I personally would also feel depressed, and angry, and more than a little betrayed. You are normal for feeling that way! Don't accept this as your lot in life. Can you ask for help? Or let them know how you are feeling, so you can show them how it affects you? Even getting a tiny bit of control can really help.

I hope you find some peace.
