Things are getting worse. I’m becoming more and more depressed everyday and I don’t know what to do. Nothing works. Medication isn’t working nor does therapy. I have no real friends and no reason for being here. I can’t stand being around people and I have no real meaningful relationships with anyone. It wouldn’t make a difference if I died. Most of life has been a complete waste and it’s getting worse. I’m starting to resent people in general. I’m constantly alone and becoming more and more isolated. My parents use to be the main and only reason that prevented me from killing myself, but not anymore. Who cares if I die, I don’t care anymore. I don’t connect with anyone and I don’t think I ever have. I’m done trying to connect with anyone, it no longer matters. My life has no meaning, it never has. Last year and the year before were hell and this year doesn’t seem to be any better. Being hospitalized did nothing to help me, and like everything else in my life was a waste of time. Everything is dark. There’s no one I feel comfortable talking to anymore. I’ve trusted people in the past which was a mistake. I’m done putting my trust in people when all they do is let you down. The world just seems so apathetic and cold. My life has always been pointless. All my life I’ve struggled with want I want to do with my life and I still don’t know. I’m done reaching out to people and I’m done trying to form connections with people. There’s no reason for me to be here, no reason for me to be alive. Life is just so mundane and I can’t take it anymore. I’m done living in pain and I’m done suffering. Suicide is the only way out for me.
