    I just don't care anymore. Especially about what happens to me. I feel lost alone and lonely. Everything is a mess and it's all because of me. I'm such a bad person. I hate myself. I don't deserve to be happy or to have anyone in my life. I'm going on a not eating binge. I don't care what happens to me. And I'm thinking of starting to cut again.

  • We did it. Today we spread my parent's ashes at sea. My wife and children were there as well as 2 of my brothers in law, and my late sister's daughter. (Her son is going to school back east, and was not able to make the trip).It was hard, but we got through the day. I feel rather like a load has been lifted. I no longer have their ashes in a box in my house, that is good. We threw the boxes...
  • I just joined this group. Currently in bed since noon, at my dads house on the opposite coast that I live on, with my two young sons. I'm supposed to be out here for ten fun days, after my father graciously took my kids so I could focus on my new business and failing marriage--but it's instead been a dismal fit of depression and anxiety. I've cried every day that I'm here. I don't think I'm on...

    I just joined. The reason is I'm looking for others to talk to that feel that same way when people I usually talk to arn't available.
  • I have struggled through the past two years with annoying people. And by annoying i mean those who push themselves to you , saying really wrong things , trying to help you without even trying to understand you. And end up asking you if you feel better. But you don't.And since the Depression support group is a big one , and we wanna make the most of it to help people and be helped , I suggest that...
