At the end of my rope

An_251918 posted:
I have been depressed for years. I have tried therapy 3 times and been on 4 different types of medication. I have tried exercise and yoga, self-medicated with alcohol, filled pages of countless journals, bought self-help books, prayed and sought out religious guidance. I have basically isolated myself to the point and extent that most of my friends have given up on me or are just frustrated to no end because they don't know what else to do for me. Every day, I feel I am just wasting time by staying busy until I die. I feel alone, unneeded, completely hopeless, backed into a corner and out of options. I don't know what else to try or where to go from here.
