I Am Lonely Because Depression

I am lonely because I have cronic depression and I am bipolar. People just don't understand and by the time they get tired of you, the only people I can count on is my family, even in my family don't understand, they just respect. My father thinks because I don't have an ice cream on my forehead and I don't destroy money I am completely normal. For him, mental illness is dementia only. I don't have any friends because the few I managed to make walked out on me tired of my crisis. Mental illness is a stigma and it's like you're marked for the rest of the life...

I have no interest in anything, the only thing I used to like was internet and television, I dont like anymore. I have nothing to do all day at home, I keep pacing around like a person with dementia. I am done with life and all the suffering this illness brought to me. I want eternal peace, as an atheist I am tranquil about it...

Maybe you can join a therapy type group specifically for people who are bipolar and can relate to you better. I might do that for my depression. I think it might help to have people who can understand and not judge.

I hate psychologists, I am allergic to them...
