Why Do I Feel Like Dying Or Crying All The Time?

I am taking anti-depression meds but they don't seem to be helping. I am still living but it doesn't feel like it. i feel like i don't belong in this world. I feel so disconnected and I struggle just to get the words out. somebody help me get over this darkness that has come over me, please!!!



Hi Libby

You do sound very depressed. I think you should go back to your doctor and explain exactly how you are feeling. It may be that the doctor will recommend a specialist or another form of treatment. I know this is a difficult time for you but try to keep the faith. Things will improve. Can you involve others in your support? Meanwhile, don't turn to alcohol, and try to get good sleep and a little exercise. Some of these things may stretch you but you've rightly come here for help and advice and this is mine. You can write back here as often as you like. Stay in contact and remember that people do care.
