Default At the end of my rope

I have tried every antidepressant except 3 which the doc is tring one now, & this one is not helping either it is called luvox. I hate my life I am very lonley have no friends & I especially hate my house. I just do not know what to do anymore? I have been hospitilazed several times for this. I have come to believe i will be like this the rest of my life all i want to do now is run away.

Running away wont solve anything but I understand how hopeless it can feel.

Hi You can try hanging out here and making some friends. When things are really terrible it usually means they will get better. I hope it gets better for you soon.
Is it your house that you hate or where the house is? Minnesota would be far too cold for me.

One of those last three or a combination might work. And maybe add some of those behavior tricks to try and make things better. I;m alone and depressed, but one thing I just started doing was to write down three good things that happened. I mean anything. Had a good cup of coffee, paid my bills on time, had a good conversation. Its been making my brain look for the good things to happen. Even though I could list 56 bad things, Im ignoring those more an more. Pretty easy, give it a try.

I'll be your friend.
I know exactly what your going through
since I'm going through the exact same thing.
Talk to your Doctor. I'm on 2 meds they work alright
Perhaps you could try holistic Chinese herbs they may help.
Most acupuncture clinics have an herbal doctor.
the Chinese have all kind of herbs for anything.
Also running away doesn't solve anything.
If at a later time you want to relocate out of State
then that's okay. But for now you should try to find out
what might work for you in the mood stabilizing dept.
Although I'm not quite sure what that would be.
Talk to your Doctor.

I kind of know the feeling, except not sure where I would run to.

I see that you have been a member of this community for over 3 years. I tried to look at your earlier posts but I'm not sure of all of your illnesses. I do understand how you must be feeling. I too have been suffering of feelings of not wanting to be here. I have tried many different meds inclucing Lithium, Seroquel, and Lamictal. None of these seemed to work. My therapist has suggested that I try DBT - Dialectic Behavior Therapy. You may want to research it. It's worth a try. I do a lot of research and I am trying not to give up. I hope this helps. Good luck and God bless you.

I can't give you any advice on the medication side of things, but perhaps if they are not working then you should try other things as well.

I was had anxiety problems and depression a few years ago and I was referred to a mindfulness cognitive behaviour therapy course and it has changed my life no end. It has helped me make peace with the world and all the bad things that happened to cause my issues in the first place, and I would even say I am happy now. Maybe not laugh out loud happy but happy enough with who and where I am. I think it could help you too...

Good luck with whatever path you choose.

I feel at end of the rope too…I feel I have had enough. How much pain is one expected to endure. This has been my whole life, I too have been inpatient in Psych Unit few times for months on end. It didn't make me feel better…it just caged me in…I know it was for safety but it still didn't keep me safe in some ways.

Plus, I have other mental health issues and physical too.

Nothing works…I try…then people think it's my own fault for not trying hard enough, not thinking positively, I should snap out of it.

Only people experiencing emotional torture know that it is impossible to snap out of it etc. If only it were that simple…
