    For one don't smapoutit, you are having the same thoughts with people as 98% of us just don't associate with those type of people. Always be honest with yourself and others if negativity really bothers you in a nice way let the person know. Plus the person is probably going through things of their own which talking about it with them could possibly help!!

    Call a depression hotline explain your situation and they can give you resources to help you get out of a bad environment.

    I understand, I'm in the same boat. Right now is okay cause I just had surgery and he has to take care of me. I go to therapy, see my p doc and go to a support group called NAMI. Just taking it day by day.
