Why Do I Feel Like Crying All The Time And Keep Having Thoughts Of Death? I Don't Like Myself.

i don't feel connected to the world around me. i have a poor appetite. It takes me forever tol accomplish anything. I would rather sleep all day, it is so painful. My thoughts do not help me to rfeel more comfortable about myself. I don't understand how people around me can live such a positive life. Why is this happening to me. i would rather die than to feel this way. Help me, please!!!

Answer

Hello, Libby. It sounds to me like you have depression. At the very least, I think you should see your regular doctor and tell him/her what's going on. If there's nothing physically wrong, you could see a psychologist and get an evaluation, but it would seem that medication and/or therapy might be really helpful, especially since you know it runs in your family. This isn't your fault. Is there anything that's happened that maybe started you off feeling like this? Sometimes it's not something obvious, but if you have a predisposition for it, something could trigger it like a loss of some kind or a trauma.

Hope you feel free to write here any time and let us know if you need any resources. There are a lot of good listeners on this site, but I want to encourage you to see your doctor.
