    I'm here because I have no one else to talk to and I've reached the end of my rope. I'm 25 years old and I've battled severe depression for the better part of 12 years. I'm ready to give up...I'm so tired.

    I don't even know where to begin explaining what is wrong with me. I put on a pleasant demeanor every day for work and for my husband. I'm an engineer. It's exhausting trying to function as a professional when you literally just want to die. Nobody even realizes there is anything wrong, they just think I am underperforming at work. My husband said he'll leave me soon if I don't figure out a way out of this depression. I can't blame him as he's tried to be supportive for 4 years and I've brought him down with me. I'm scared because I have no one else. I don't have any friends.

    I don't fit in this world and I don't want to live amongst it anymore. I really don't have any more hope or care. My self esteem is non-existent and life is so much more trouble than it is worth. I can't even believe I'm writing this, but I desperately need help.

    Hi i am a professional too and know what it is like to wear a mask all day. I am too ashamed to go into hospital to get help. I do go to a psychologist who is vry kind understanding. Have you tried the newer medication out there now for hard to treat depression. there are new meds new therapy. I think you should call your doctor and ask about this. Your husband needs his own therapy as well to help him cope with a partner who has depression. You have reached out here and it does help to talk to someone who understands as i do. The only way i am still here is because i am getting therapy and i am on newer medication for depression Please continue to help yourself for your sake and your husbands okay call doctor call crisis and get help for you so you can continue on coping okay. I amsorry you are in so deep but the only way out of the tunnel the darkness is with help call and get it okay please you are so worth it
