    I'm so tired of this pain. I am 38, and I have struggled against depression for my entire adult life. I honestly loathe myself, and the closer I look at me, the worse the picture. I feel that if I can't find a way to be okay with the bad that I've done and the meaningless nature of this life, there's not much reason to keep going. I've tried to wait until my parents are gone, but I really don't know if I have it in me to wait much longer. I guess I just want someone to talk to. I'd like to feel more human right now.

    I've been depressed my whole life (I'm 40) and I understand your struggle. Don't give up.

    Hi purls and welcome to SF. I'm sorry to hear that you're suffering so much from depression and suicidal thoughts, but please don't give up hope. Life can appear meaningless at times, but there is always meaning and purpose, you just have to find it. Please don't give up. :hug:

    When I was a kid and times were tough I found deep anger inside of me to get out of the shitty situation which carried me for years, then I broke down and was looking for purpose because nothing seemed to interest me. And now I am living on hope because I have a plan, but there are parts of it where I just don't know what will happen. So I live on hope.
