Im just looking for some type of guidance and support from people that know what Im going through. Ive managed to deal with my depression for so long, but now I cant do it anymore. I dont have the money or resources to seek professional help, and support from my peers is my only option now. Lately, Ive just been crying constantly, I barely eat, I drive an hour to go sit on the beach to just write. I was diagnosed with clinical depression when I was a freshman in college, but do to finances I was unable to continue seeing a therapist and I couldnt afford the medication. I cant turn to my family about it because they dont understand the need for treatment or what Im going through. Outside of my room I put on a smile so that I can convince everyone that Im okay. It works, but now I no longer leave my room. I dont participate in activities I use to love, dont hang out with my friends, etc. Ive just completed my junior year of college, and it just seems that I keep sinking and Im unable to pick myself back up like I use to. I know that once you fall, the only option you have left is to go back up, but Im having a very difficult time doing that. I have no self-esteem whatsoever, I feel like people are out to get me, Im very pessimistic, I dread waking up, and I cant even love myself and I therefore cant accept the love of others. My goal is do a complete 360 by July 13th, which is my birthday, I dont know if it will happen, but Im going to try my hardest because I dont know how much more I can bare.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
