    With things going the way they are I feel like I'd rather die right now. Lots of times I've heard that things get better with time. But how long is that time going to be? I am 19 by the way. How much longer should I hold on? I don't want to have to wait until I am almost 30 for things to improve. I've already lost 4 years to this one issue.
    What should I do? I don't want to live this way until I die naturally (which will be in at least 70 years).

    Hi Kenneth...maybe it is time to advocate for yourself and make sure you get the care and support you need...the value of time is what we do with it and you deserve to feel better...please PM me if you would like to process what options for care you might have...big hugs, J

    It's not so much that time will settle things.. It's what you do with that time.. Why don't you make a list of positive things you can do and start out slow..Pick one thing off your list and do it..Do you see a therapist?? They can teach you coping skills and just give you an ear to get things off your chest.. And you have us to talk to..
