I have been suffering with depression for a long time know. I feel like giving up on everything. I have been let down by family, friends, companies and the state. 

What ever I do I cannot get anywhere in life. I have worked all my life and I cannot get settled in a job. I have done all the courses to see if that will make any difference for me to settle down. I am always over looked for promotions andwork opertunities. evn though I can do the job. I am still overlooked and let down. I even have all the experiance to do the jobs that I apply for. 

I have no one to surport me in my life. Even my own family and friends will never support me when I need. I am know at the stage in my life I should just give up.

    Hi stephen 

    I am sorry you feel this way about yourself. I myself have my boyfriend and my church friends my family rarely supports me accept for my sister and once in a while my younger brother. 

    Please do not think about giving up it won't help issues. Please get yourself some help. I go to a mental health facility where i live to get councelling maybe you should think about attending a program like that. Also you can call the Nami Hot line if you are really in need of help they help people with depression and anxieties and they can direct you in the right direction. 

    You are not alone you got my frindship you can alway talk to me if you need to.


    Take care and please life is to short to end it just stay positive

    Don't give up, Stephen. Hang in there. Talk to a close friend and a trusted doctor about you just wrote. It will get better. I'll be praying for you.
