im falling down a drain and i cant get back up

Im depressed and life... it doesnt seem worth it. people say 'look at all the things you have' and yea i have a lot to be thankful for but i just dont care...

i dont want to kill myself, i just want to sleep forever. Anyone have advice, i cant stand therapy and
pills are nice but no longer doing the trick.

You can be mean I deserve it, im down a drain and i keep reaching up but no one is grabbing me

  • How are your periods? Are you using birth control, if so, what type? I'm thinking you might be having a hormone imbalance issue rather than a depression issue. I say this because I was exactly like you 4 years ago. I learned about estrogen dominance and corrected my hormones and I feel like a human again. Try checking out and

  • look into bioidentical hormones. It could really just be a health issue and not so much a mind thing. Dont let yourself feel guilty that you are feeling this way. You know you love your kids and can think of reasons to stick around (thats why you're still here) but you cant figure out why you arent happy. This is where survival instinct kicks in. Push through until you find the source.

  • You are passive, or lazy. My suggestion is to figure out your life long goals. It could be music, helping others, sports, arts. Everyone has a passion for something.

    I used to be just like you, but I was suicidal. It took 10 years to finally figure it out. Whatever you want in life, just go for it. I've always wanted to help people, so I am going to college for Human Services(I dropped out at 16) My hubby always wanted to be in the music industry. Hard shitt!! But, he got a jod doing security for concerts. And is applying for radio stations.

    Get off your ass & DO SOMETHING. write down long term goals, then short term goals to achieve them. Dont do things you dred doing because failure will follow. If you are working for things that benifit you and get you closer to your dreams, then you will not feel depressed and tired. Yes it will be a challenge, but you will feel good about yourself & what you are achieving.
