I literally live in a house where no one talks to me now,
My depression has gotten so bad.
4 attempts and
i'm still here..,
it must be for a reason, right?
everyday is a struggle i wish i could see hope for the future
...
my diagnosis list grows
and thinking about the future scares me, i'm scared i won't be able to work because of my mental health issues.

i hope chat open soon, i miss all of you
and i hope you're all okay!

Hey Mellyyy,

Sorry that your having such a hard time right now Sad Sometimes thinking about the future is really difficult, because you can't see past your current problems, that happens to me too. When I feel so hopeless and pointless and lost, I just try to take things one day at a time, or one hour at a time, or even one minute at a time. The important thing is that you keep going, and it will get better, even if you can't see it right now.

I remember people telling me that things would get better, and I honestly did not believe them, I didn't even see how it could happen, from the place I was in. But when I look back at the past few years, I realize I have had a lot of improvement, and you can too, you just have to survive all the really hard times.

I know that depression can be so crushing. Try to find little joys, small victories. Even if the situation your in right now is not ideal, try and work with it, and make the best of it. I really like the prayer/ saying on the Jade homepage right now: "God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."

Anyway, even if no one in your house is talking to you, people here in Jade will always be here to talk Smile Stay strong, and keep going! You are right, you are here for a reason!

Take care,

- Joce
