What do you do when all you can do is sit and cry ,and just feel like you want to end it all.Well that is how I feel.What do you do when the child that you have stood up for when everyone else was putting him down,tells you he hates you and has for nearly all his life,no he is no young child,he is married with a family of his own.He thinks that I shouldnt get up set if I get the food I should be eating and everyone else eats it and leaves the food with the high carbs for me to have to eat if I want to eat at all.

I have been where you are - crying all the time and not understanding why. Feeling isolated from and hurt by those I loved. Wanting to just end it - and end the pain.

It is a very dark place - believe me, I know. It seems as though you'll never be able to get out of it. But you can.

The first step is to find someone to talk to, and I don't mean a friend. You need to talk with someone removed from your situation and who is a pro - your minister or a therapist, for example. You'll be amazed how relieved you'll feel when you finally unburden yourself to someone who is on your side.

They can help you out of the hole. I will tell you that therapy or counseling can be hard work, but it is SO worth it.

Good luck, my dear. And welcome to the site - you'll find lots of support here.

Then keep trying.

Try another counselor. Talk to another member of the clergy, maybe someone a friend can recommend.

Nobody's going to wave a magic wand and make you feel better. It takes work on your part. And, no, it's not easy.

I say this in all kindness and as a 60 year old lady who's been there - done that - and survived. So far, anyway!

I agree with Pam,

I too have been there, and not too long ago, and am still trying to recover from the terrible depression; the hurt and pain that a family member has inflicted on me…It is good to have someone to talk to, someone out of the realm…Someone who can sometimes see the big picture, when we, a family member, or frind cannot… Just know that you are not alone, and there are people here who care, and are more than willing to listen…Don't give up, or give in!
