I think I'm hopeless

My depression is the worst symptom I have. It stops me from doing a lot and it’s almost constantly there. I don’t think I’ll ever get true relief from it, I don’t know what the point is anymore. I don’t want to live right now. Hotlines don’t help me. Nothing does it seems.

Sorry Moon. I don’t know what to offer as advice. Have you tried to work with your doc and get on proper meds? Have you tried CBT?

I’ve been in psych treatment for 10 years. My Dr has tried a lot of meds on me

Well it sounds like you are trying everything you can. Don’t give up hope. You may yet find something that works for you.

I have had negative symptoms harassing me for years now so I know where you are coming from as far as losing hope that you can find a solution. I sometimes feel like giving up too. Don’t do it though Moon!

Sorry that you are feeling this way and best of luck.

Don’t give up hope. One day you might wake up and it will all be better.

My meds don’t help everything. But I think I should continue to have hope in a better future as far as being followed and recorded goes. Don’t give up! I know it’s hard. But don’t quit trying. You might have a great future ahead of you. Sometimes people improve with age. You never know what the future will bring

Moon, don’t give up. I live with SZ for about 25 years and It seems that I am withdrawing from social activity. we can do some small things and little by little it would amount to a big one.

There was this guy at a mental hospital where I was who was severely depressed. He always kept his head bowed, and he was barely responsive to his environment. Then one day he turned into a completely different person. He talked a lot. He laughed a lot. He was genuinely happy. I don’t know what caused the sudden change. I don’t think it was med’s. He never said he had been put on different med’s. Keep up hope. You might suddenly recover. Or, you could begin a gradual process of recovering. The point is, you can get better in unexpected ways.

I was so depressed for a long time and felt I had no mind. It got better with time. Sometimes there was nothing I could do. It was dark.

Exercise is the best thing you can do for depression if you’re already on an ad. Walking in nature can do miracles for your mood.

I agree depression is hard to live with and can last long term for some people. When you consider if you are hopeless, I hope you can find inside some hope in some way. Perhaps someone you know can provide some stability and hope.
I hope the feelings you express get better. I have had depression and for me it never lasts forever.

I have had a lot of success with flupenthixol

I was depressed last year because I’ve come to realize I have mental illness. Also done so much from it things I regret. But the pdoc prescribed me anti depressants and they’re really working well. Things will change. You’ll feel better. Been there
