    Oh Alison I have many times said I hated myself, and it is the depression talking.  It makes us so negative.  I know how you are feeling, and I am so sorry.  Please don't think about taking your own life.  I took an overdose once, but I am still here.  Your family would be devastated, even if you don't think they care.  I am sure they don't hate you.  Why do you think everyone hates you?  Do you really believe that, or do you think the depression is making you feel like that?

    You deserve to be here.  Many times I read the same thing, that people with depression think they don't deserve to be here, that everyone dislikes them, and they hate themselves.  If you have read other people's messages here you will no that many people with depression feel like this.  Believe me it is the illness that makes you think these things.

    What help are you getting from doctors? Are you taking anti depressants?  Please get help.  I have been where you are, but I have battled so hard because I do not want the illness to win.  Yes it does take everything away from us, I know.  It is a terrible illness.  Keep writing here, and I am sure you will get great support.  We all know how you feel, we have all been where you are, believe me. 

    Take care, and don't do anything rash please, I beg you.

    Hi

    you have to makes an appointment with your GP as a matter of urgency.  Equally, call the Samaratins or Life Link to give you someone to talk to.  There is also GAMH Or your nearest Community Health Office.  You can refer yourself for cognitive therapy treatment, if you live in Glasgow.  Unfortunately, antidepressants will take about 4 weeks to kick in but the GP could give you something faster acting like a beta blocker as a temporary measure.  If you have done your best for your children, the they're lucky to have you and you can do no more + some people cope better than others with illness a do you are Ill.

    Hi.  No you are not worthless or evil - it is the depression talking so don't listen to it.   It does sound like you have spoiled your kids rotten and they think they can treat you badly and get away with it.  You need to start putting your foot down and put yourself first for a change sometimes.  

    I do think you have depression so you must go to the doctors as you need a diagnosis.   Med and/or counselling should be able to help you.   And stop being a martyr to your kids as well!  x
