    Feeling Depressed

    I have been feeling low and have no energy most of the time. Stuck in a job that pays well but is unexciting. Need some major motivation to get out of the depression. Any advice.

    I Can't Find My Way

    What'S Wrong With Me?

    I don't know what is wrong with me. I feel like a crazy person. I have no self esteem and think I am a horrible person. I also feel like there is no end to the madness of life. I just don't know anymore.
