Lost all hope

lexismom11 posted:
I am feeling very sad and angry today. I have lost all hope that I will ever be better. I am going to see another doctor on Tuesay to see if there is anything the he can do to help me. So I will see how that goes. Until then, I am not sure what I am going to do. Even then, I have a lot of doubts as to whether I can even be helped. My depression is so bad right now. I just feel completely defeated like everything I do is pointless and my life means nothing.

I am not feeling so hot tonight. My sister went home today and that makes me really sad. Not sure what to do with the sadness. It just gets added to all of the sadness that already exists. I just don't don't have any more words right now.

I am feeling like I don't belong anywhere. I am an outsider looking in. Everything I do is difficult, even sleeping. I either sleep too much or not enough. I am not worthly of a good life. I just want to cry but I can't. Nothing can help me. I feel like I am going crazy because I can't control my depression or my thoughts.

Sometimes the biggest source of inspiration comes from the person you see in the mirror everyday. Look yourself in the face and remember you ARE worth it!
