Help! Help! Help!

I am very depressed because I'm extremely lonely.  I've been living in a new city, state for 6 years now.  Even though I have a husband and 3 children , I am still depressed and lonely.  My children are teenagers 2 in college and 1 a junior in h.s. and they are really doing their own thing, not much time for me  and my husband is a workaholic, not much time for me.  I'm a work at home employee and all I do is work and go to church on sunday.  I 've been visiting churches, haven't made any friends at church; no one talks to me.  Lately, I have been so lonely and depressed, I have been wishing God will end my life, take away the pain and heartache of depression and loneliness.  I don't know what to do. Please help me.

You can start trading emails with me-:) I am in a similar situation and I think the more time you spend alone and unhappy with no one to talk to who understands, the worse you feel. You really just need some encouragement and some fun in your life. What are some of the things you have always wanted to do but never got around to doing? Do you like your job or does it drain you? Feel free to email me anytime for a more private conversation-:) Good luck!

Have you thought about doing volunteer work? Maybe help out in a food pantry or homeless shelter or after school program. It will make you feel better, give you a sense of purpose and might give you the chance to make friends. Find something that you enjoy or feel passionate about and it will really add something valuable to your life.
