How do I manage to live with this feeling...?

Yeah, i'm in the bottom again, every piece of my soul is suffering, and i have no idea how to get out of bed today. I have to go to the college, i have to work, i need to be useful, at least a little bit. But, how can I? This feeling is pushing me down again, i feel weak, and i just want to cry myself to sleep.
The worst part is, all this pain doesn't even have a reason, a name, its not someone's or something's fault. I just feel like dying :D
God, what i did to deserve this?
It would be incredible if depression had a cure. I've been coping with this feeling since I know myself, but each time I get older, each day that passes, I know, it is getting harder to manage. The first few times, I could just shake it off, after that, I could just put this feeling as someone's fault. There where times where I could use this to transform it in anger and motives to do something useful of myself. But now, I don't know what to do, and o know I'm going to drown if this continues...

Even venting isn't working that well anymore...

The best cure for depression is a change in the way you think. It starts there. It starts with COMMITTING to a idea that pessimistic, hopeless & negative thinking needs to be confronted w/ optimistic, hopeful & positive thinking. The portrait of your present & future becomes a lot brighter, clearer & better as a result. Problems begin to have solutions. Solutions appear that never would have appeared otherwise.

Flip every negative idea you have about yourself on it’s head. Turn your “cant’s” into “cans”.

It is hard. You will relapse. But you have to commit yourself to it & not give up.

@TheQuimeraMonster I'm the same. Forcing every day.
I find that routine helps. For example I need to take shower just after I wake up. Otherwise the whole.days falls into pieces. I don't know why. It just is what it is. Routine.
Maybe it could wirk for you too. And most important of all - little steps. Just little steps. Every day.

Thank you Paul, I've been doing this, fighting my pessimistic brain, this is why I'm still here. I don't know if it is still working tho...

You’ll see results but u have to give it time. It takes time to untrain your brain from the pessimism. Doesn’t happen overnight.
