Lost All Hope - August 3rd 2012, 02:26 AM

I have been suffering from depression for about 2 years since my dads death. I had been seeing councillor's for about a year and half and been taking meds for about 2 months and nothing seems to work, I am no longer depressed about my dads death but more about how I am a nothing and just useless, I have no social life and hardly ever go to school. Nothing works and am close to ending it all. I see no point in living any more.

Hey there, JF. I'm sorry you're suffering-- and I hope you hang in there.

Think of every family or friend you have or ever known, and how they'd miss you if you ended it all. And, since you see no point in living, you won't ever know it if you end it all. The only way to find that point is simply to live and find it later.

Time can help, please just give the meds, therapy and help some time.

I know you want to hang in there-- that's why you're here, after all.

So please, hang on.

Hi there.

Firstly, I'm glad you have come to us for some help and support. I know reaching out to people can be really hard but I think coming here is a really positive step in the right direction.

I am incredibly sorry to hear about you dad. I can't begin to imagine how hard losing him must be for yourself and your family. I know you say that you have learnt to deal with this now but if you do want to talk to us, know that we;re here for you when you need us.

Its good you're in counselling but if you don't feel its helping perhaps you can think about why is isn't? Maybe its the person you're working with or maybe it's the work you're doing? Maybe its you; do you use what you learn in the sessions in every day life? I know counselling isn't all about going to a one hour session a week. The person in counselling needs to take the advice and put it into action outside of those sessions as well. As for the meds, you say you have only been on them for two months so it might be that they just haven't started working properly yet and I'd give it a bit more time. Sometimes we don't realise that they're working a bit when we think they aren't. If you really feel they aren't working in another month or two, talk to the person who prescribed you them. It might be its not the right medication for you and it can be changed or that you need a higher dose than you have been put on.

You're definitely not a nothing. You're a person who exists and to the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world. Can I ask why you don't go to school much? I know it might be hard to get yourself there with how you feel but going might actually really help you. The only person who can change your social life is yourself and going to school will help that. It might be a good idea to look around for local groups etc too to try and get a bit involved. Have a think about it.

I know this is hard but you can do it. Get yourself involved and get meeting people and go out and have fun like a teenager should. You're worth a lot and you have your whole life ahead of you so don't give up. Keep on fighting and enjoy life. You can do this.

Keep your chin up :-)
