    i feel so useless :( i feel really dreadful. i dont feel like anyone would miss me if i weren't here. i am registered but am worried that nobody would reply if they could see who i was. i have good things in my life - i have a loving family and a new baby - yet i feel like im not worth anything and that people would even be luckier off without me. why is this? i should just feel lucky and not care that people dont want me. but somehow i care.

    hi and welcome...sorry to hear you feeling so down on yourself.

    you say you have a loving family and new baby, so how would they be luckier off without you. your family would miss you for sure..and your baby, how do you think your baby would feel growing up with your love and support. people clearly do care, you just dont see it at the moment. not sure if you the mother or father of the baby, if mother, maybe you suffering from post natal despression, and as a father its hard for both of you to adjust to the changes going on...a baby changes a lot of things. can you talk to your doc about how you feel, even family of partner. there is always help and hope once you ready to take the step.

    My box is always open. Even if weve never passed words or even angry ones.

    Your baby needs you to be there. Do you think it could be post pardon? I know after I had my second one it was hard getting back into the mental part of life, it was all so tiring and exhausting physically and mentally. Which brought out alot of my bi and depression.

    Have you talked to your doc yet?

    no one is useless, you have a child to brig up in the world and i guess that seems daunting but you will be fine. if you are really struggling seek professional help, to help get you through.
    i hope your not at crisis point- you have too much to live for.
    take care :hug:

    You're not useless. :hug:

    I know we've probably never talked, but I'm always available, too.
