I've been dealing with depression issues for most of my life but it seems to be getting worse with each day regardless of medication and therapy.
I have no real friends to speak of.
That is, the kind of friends that will be there when I go through these really dark horrible times.
I'm always trying to fight back this feeling like I want to end it all.
I'm really scared and extremely lonely.

Dark feelings grip everyone at one time or another. I always try to remember that life is never as bad as I believe it to be. That I am here to evperience life, not be trashed about by life.

And my pets generally let me know I am not the center of attention. They are. wave

BamaFan: pain from what?

Pain from feeling like a total failure.
Lost love, divorce, music career down the drain.
No support system..as if no one I know in my life cares
I'm rudderless

Hey - I've suffered depression most of my adult life (but didn't know it was in any way a clinical illness or a socially acceptable form of 'circumstantial depression' until a few years ago).

The worst thing you can do is allow yourself to think about it....... find something to do so that those thoughts quit haunting your every breathing moment.

You may have feelings of guilt or feel less of a human being than other people - just ignore these feelings by doing something - anything!

Try and make a list of things to do. Include loads of easy things however trivial they may seem. Cross off the things you've done - even if it's just having had a shave or washing the dishes! You'll feel good that you've done something instead of just feeling sorry for yourself.

Do your best to take away the 'I' from the situation. Depression is avery selfish illness (sorry if reading this then makes you even more depressed) - try and do things for other people - this will not only take away the thoughts you have the time to linger over but shall also make you feel better.

Good luck
