Hi, This is mt first time on a forum like this. Things in my life have gone so far enough, that I have no other choice than to seek alternative help. I don't know where to start. I am quite sure I am depressed. I feel weak, hopeless and lost the point and beauty in life. I do understand why it is so, but the problem is that I don't see any chances for change soon. And that is what bothers me. I feel lost. The worst thing about this is that I feel like I have almost no one to talk about my problems. My parents whom I am visiting for Christmas now are always to busy and unwilling to listen to my problems. My lovely girlfriend tries hard with medium success. My friends seam not to notice or even care about my thoughts. Most of my young life (20) I have been trying hard to learn more and achieve more to get noticed and appreciated by my close ones. Without success. And even though I am doing pretty well for my age, I do not get that bit of appreciation. What's the point? Do I have to feel like this forever?
