    Getting burnt out on the only computer game I can play, and soon I will have nothing. I'm so awful at everything I can't even play the popular games with people such as strategy and FPS because I'm so fuckin retarded. Why can't I do anything right? :sad:

    Soon I'll have no choice except hospitalization. My addiction to one game has kept my depression under control, but now I fear for the worst.

    Can you talk to us about why you're so depressed?

    I have very low self-esteem, no real interests, dread the future, and nothing makes me happy anymore. Every day feels like a new chore. Everyone else can at least keep themselves busy with going out, watching TV, etc. but I have very low attention span and need something stimulating so that I don't dwell on my dreadful thoughts. I wish I could just die.

    Thank you. It makes me feel a little better knowing that I'm not alone in feeling like this. Meds and therapy still have yet to yield any positive results.

    I don't know much about computer games, but aren't there any you could borrow from friends (to see if you like them) or check them out on-line? There must be some that you'd like where you don't have to really compete against anyone! I've always wanted to try one where you have the POV of a fighter pilot as the graphics look great and require some skill.

    Like I said, I don't know much about them so maybe I'm way off base. But continue with the therapy and maybe switch meds eventually. I had to try many before I got any results and I think most here have had to try several different ones as well.

    Please stay in touch with us.

    Pretty much all the good games involve some form of competition. =/ Single player games just don't last long enough. Currently waiting on a new game coming out in June, Champions Online, but not sure it'll keep me busy for months. I just need good games that don't involve competition to distract me because I don't enjoy anything. Every day I pretty much just count down until bedtime. Life's so miserable.
