Q: I think of dying all the time and I am so irritable all the time, meds galore what do I do?

I have been depressed since I was sixteen and attempted suicide many times then.  I then developed aneroxia really bad and almost died and I think it was another attempt to wither away to nothing.  I am on meds, have been since the aneorxia.  I can't exercise too much because I am one of those obsessive exercisers.  I am almost thirty and don't see a future.  I am in the constant depression, some times better than others, but I don't feel real.  I don't feel hopeful, engaed in life.  I don't want to be touched, date, leave my house for how I think I look and feel.  Do I have that dsythemia thing or just depression because depression comes and goes.  Mine seems to always be there and then get really REALLY bad at times.  I overmedicate just to keep from taking that leap.  I have tried counseling, been hospitalized, but nothing.  Do I have a chance?  I am afraid I will hurt myself one day or worse die alone with no one in my life.  Any suggestions or advice, please be gentle.

Oh wow I can't believe what I'm reading... I am diagnosed with bi-polar and since I have been a kid they have tried a lot of different meds with me.. None of which have helped most giving me a feeling of not being myself. Very weird if u ask me not only that, I don't like the side effects or the way I can't function. I end up needing more meds to help with the side effects of the meds I am already on.. What do u all do to help yourselves?

Don't feel so alone with these symptoms; It's gotten to the point that I have a hard time leaving my home, panic with 3 or more people around me and just feel useless to my partner of 15 yrs  tom

I feel the same way but it has gotten so bad even with meds that I don't want to leave my house or be around crowds I just feel like I scared. I've never been that way before but since Easter my Mother passed away suddenly and I was layed off from work two weeks later. It seems like everything is closing in on me.

any help is appriciated....Tom
