why does life have to suck,
Don has been beating me to the punch with all his spot-on answers.
I will add my own suggestions now. Like he told you, it could put your mind at ease to talk with your primary care doctor or internist or family doctor, or GP or general practitioner, whatever he or she is called where you live.
You're right: life isn't always a bowl of cherries. You might be going through something right now that causes you not to be optimistic about life. So I also suggest you reach out for help. I don't mean to sound sexist but it's possible that if you're a guy you might feel it's a sign of weakness to ask for help.
You've taken the first step: you've acknowledged you don't know how to ask for help. If you have a trusted friend, even if he's one of your only friends, you might want to talk to him. Now, I know guys talk about football and they don't talk about their feelings to one another. This is true. Yet if you do have a friend you feel you can reach out to, you might try this.
Like Don said, if you suspect a mental illness is coming on for you in your life, now is the time you must get help. The longer you wait, the worse it could get.
Life IS hard. I admire your courage to want to do something to feel better. You've taken the first step, and that's what counts.
The upside to your query is that you're not alone and that sometimes, life does suck, for almost eveyone, even the people who seem happy all the time.
As we go through life there are ups and downs, in emotions, in our minds, in our relationships with family and friends. And some of us do need help with our problems.
A good place to start is with your family doctor. You can tell him or her exactly how you're feeling and go from there. He might suggest that you see a psychiatrist and give you one to go to, or you could find one on your own.
If you are having symtoms of mental illness, it's very important to see someone and get it treated right away. The longer you wait - the worse it could get.
Keep that in mind.
there are better treatments for schizophrenia than just medicine. i use 1500 milligrams of niacinamide and 1500 milligrams of vitamin c (can get at health food store) for my schizophrenia. also, i stay away from alchohol, caffeine, and sugar and refined sugars. my condition is much better since i have been on this program (a person must stay on this program permanently). the book i found this program in is called-niacin:the real story by hoffer,saul, and foster.
this book has helped me a lot.
