Feel so lost and alone

I have struggled with depression for basically all my life. Recently it has become a lot worse. To the point of interferring with my relationship. I am not being rational and causing him pain. I feel like it is a daily battle within myself. I feel so alone because my boyfriend gets annoyed and doesn't want to be around me because I lash out at him the most. I started seeing a therapist and then he left the company I was seeing him through so it's been almost a month since I have seen someone and it just gets worse. I don't know what I can do to help myself other than getting therapy, but I feel like I am being given the run around.

I have an idea of the basis for my depression, the root cause, but I don't know how to deal with so many years of repressed abandonment issues and pain. All I do is cry and it makes it all harder for my boyfriend to deal with it. it makes it harder for him to help support me and be there because I am so irrational and i cry at the drop of a hat.

hi felrna
welcome to the forum, I hope you find some good advice and support. I am sorry things feel so bad for you at the moment and that your relationship is suffering due to your illness.
You mention that you may have some insight to your depression, have you seen a therapist, I think that would be a good way forward for to explore all that is going on for you.
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily...........Zig Ziglar
