is my life falling apart because i am depressed, or am i depressed because my life is falling apart?
please read my other question on my major quarter life crisis for more detailed info on my current situation. i have been told i have situational depression, which makes me want to escape my situation. i have also been told i have clinical depression, which my mother is diagnosed with. these people have said i must not leave town or try to move on because i will only take my problems with me. i am just so sick of it all, and i am desperate to escape this feeling and this daily struggle. i fel like i have no real friends anymore, and i have recently lost the love of my life, she moved on, i have another posted question about this too that you can read. which comes first, the chicken or the egg? i feel like the longer i stay here the worse things get, but i am not financially or emotionally able to leave or move on. sometimes i just want to end it all! i am scared to leave and terrified to stay, sinking into a daily downward spiral of negative thoughts, help!
