Hi there everyone. I have had depression and anxiety for a number of years. I feel quite isolated and am so tired of struggling. I want to be better, but people seem not to understand why it is that I can't just make the positive changes that will make me 'happy'. My overwhelming feeling is shame and feeling like I have nothing to offer. Obviously I can't even begin to explain my life experiences or even fathom how I came to end up here. I feel so ashamed that talking to people about it makes me feel disgusted in myself and fraudulant. I'm not sure what I'm asking for. Maybe just some words in the dark. Thanks, me.
