    Im on a routine on pills on therapy. Nothing seems to work. I donít see a way out. My mind and thoughts are a constant battle field. I am not satisfied with life. I do things that used to make me happy and if anything makes me feel worse. The only thing thatís helping Is my medic school. I hvnt done any alcohol or drugs so I wonít go that way. Iíve been trying to fix myself but I just feel so inadequate. How much longer do I have to fight to just feel something decent. I get It maybe Im pathetic to think like this and the way I view my standing point isnít the best. Im constantly wearing a mask and feel wrecked inside.

    I feel like behind your screen name is a very close friend of mine.....So ďheĒ has told me that he recognizes that these loss of value in life thoughts are going to be a part of his existence. I know that heís been having these thoughts for years, or his entire life, actually.. I see though tooóhe has recently built new things into his life and sees some avenues of opportunity. Itís going to take work and a little luck and love from people.
    Think about if you have been isolating. You know you cannot do that. Reaching out here is a good first step.
    But reach back to people you know who arenít harmful to you. Drop the user friend. At least for now, until youíre stronger and have a couple people in your life.

    So tonightó-for starters, you need to write down your schedule or checklist of things to get done for tomorrow and set a bedtime for tonight and follow it.

    We are hear to listen and advise. I personally derive enjoyment / satisfaction from helping others - no worries there.

    I would suggest consulting with your GP or psychiatrist about the medication. I have tried medication (SSRI) before and had a fairly bad experience, so I stopped - maybe your GP/psychiatrist would be able to advise you on whether continuing or switching is the right move for you.

    Not deriving enjoyment from hobbies or fun activities is a common symptom of depression.

    You ought to choose to do something to jumpstart a break to that depression. What about yourself do you not like? Looks, personality, interests, etc.? Maybe you could identify those things, and then work on one of them at a time? Alternatively, you could start small, say with cleaning the house or apartment in which you reside, doing laundry, or with learning how to do something: how to play chess, do the waltz, etc. Making progress is important.
