    What can I do when I have tried all this and still feel this way?

    Single mum. Full time good job. Isolated and sad. Unable to create satisfactory social relations. Feeling black hole since at least 15-now 40, bullied, from ‘bad family’. Wanting to die. Finding relief and pleasure in researching the suicide subject. Will not die as I have a little son, so no worry.

    Smiling in social situations- very dissociated from my true feelings. Being unable to find peace in social situations, yet missing them very much. Left out almost every day.

    Going very low when alone. Then getting scared that it is so low that I cannot go any further and that I am really going to desert my son.

    Hardly remembering what it means to enjoy things, yet being active out of duty.

    Seen GP when was strong enough to say pls I need to see psychologist. Seen psychiatrist. Had therapies - unfortunate endings that now only hurt, with no energy heal myself from these contacts. Insomniac when on various antidepressants.

    Pls help. Help, which will never come.

    no single answer… why, why me

  • My research interests include immunology and the mechanisms of amyloid formation. The latter has implications for people who are dealing with Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease … View Profile

    I am reading and I care.

    Maybe it might help if you thought about the things that you enjoyed in the past and think about revisiting them?
