    I don't even really know what I am supposed to write on here but I am so unhappy, my whole life has been one drama after another. I grew up with a violent dad for a very long time, I then had a very bad experience when I was 15, I then came out of a three year relationship which was at times also violent but it was also the best time of my life and I have never really gotten over it despite having another relationship since. I seem to have problem after problem! I have a number of close good friends but most of the time I just want to lock myself in a room. I have also cut myself for the last 10 years, it's never bad like I needed treatment but I uses people would still say it was wrong. It's the first thing I think to turn too.

    Recently I have gotten myself into another stupid situation at work and its like I am trapped In this job. This other person has had an attempted suicide three years ago, and now I feel I have to cope with there unstableness also, I don't mean that in a patronising way it all, but its like a constant roller coaster of emotions, I feel sick with worry all the time.

    Overall I have things most people would love, a job, a home a d some friends but I have never been so unhappy and down, I am tired of life, I just want to go to sleep and not wake up, I am so fed up and I can't ever see a point where I will not feel like this, only one person really knows what I do but because of their situation I know it is too hard for them to cope with. I am torn between wanting to die but feeling guilty to those I leave, it's like I am alive purely for their sake, but I just can't keep going on

    Thanks for writing back, I haven't had professional help but I have been told I should, I went to the doctors recently for something trivial and ended up breaking down, they recommended I speak to someone. But I feel I need answers not just coming to my own conclusions which I know is what I am meant to do. I also have a friend who suffered with bi-polar and self harmed severely where I would end up taking him to hospital, so when I think of myself compared to him I think I'm not really bad enough to get help if that makes sense. I could feel like this for a few weeks, then I could have a week where I am absolutely fine and I will think I was stupid for feeling so low and in my head I will put it down to exaggerating how I feel. But one small thing can put me back instantly to despair. As I've read back what I've written before, it is exactly how I feel, I am living my life purely because I don't want to hurt those close to me, it's not for me at all, but then why should I have to live so unhappy for others? I can't even make sense of it in my own head, let alone how confused anyone else would probably be reading this? I am just sick and tired of putting a face on things for other people, I have recently bought my own house which will be ready in May and the only thing I am looking forward to is being able to go home after work and just cry if I need to and not have to answer any questions.

    I am glad I stumbled across this forum because it does feel good to say these things to people who are impartial, it wasn't what I was searching for but luckily it appeared in the search.
