Have you been to a doctor? It sounds as though you have been suffering from "dysthymia". This is a low-grade depression that never goes away. Medication can greatly help with this. I've had this illness all my life. My father was a paranoid schizophrenic, so I suppose I should feel lucky I didn't inherit that. Feelings of low self worth, the inability to make decisions or get things accomplished are a few of the symptoms. I wish you all the best!

I'm here too. I understand.

I know how you feel ....sometimes when I am having a bad day depression wise it is so hard to motivate myself to do anything.<br />
<br />
I also know how it feels to have someone misunderstand..<br />
<br />
sorry you feel like this.<br />

I am here if you ever need to talk...
