I've been depressed for most of my life. I come from a miserable family as it is--lots of screaming, hitting, depression, etc. Lately, I've been fighting with my siblings more than usual. I can't reach out to my family. My boyfriend recently broke up with me and seems to have moved on rather quickly. The few friends that I had are all busy with families of their own. I just don't have anyone. If I have to stay late at work, it's fine with me because I sometimes don't want to go home. Nights are the hardest, you know? It's really hard to get sleep and I cry constantly. Any advice? For getting professional help (for which I'm so terribly shy and ashamed to do)? For meeting people? For getting through the nights without going insane? For letting go of a man who doesn't love me?
