I feel lost and lonely even though i have people around me, the loneliness sets in harder everyday. I feel like if i was just gone and my life was over everyone elses would be better cause i wouldnt be causing pain and disappointment everywhere i go and to everyone i meet. Even when i try to do better and try to be happy i cant. Im not happy and i dont know how to make it stop and they say oh go get help. Help to me is a drink at this point just to forget all the pain and worry and heartache ive caused. HOw do i get through this?

I wish I could tell you how to get through "this" because I'm feeling the same way. I hate the holidays, and my meds have stopped working, so everything is worse. I'm ruining my reputation at my job by not getting my work done, but I can't focus and can't seem to accomplish anything. I try to do better as well, and maybe I do for a few minutes, but then I'm back to being self-sabotaging. I'm not happy either, I don't know if I've ever been happy, but I am getting help. I keep trying. That's all we can do, I think. I think about putting one foot in front of the other. I can't do "one day at a time" so I try "5 minutes at a time". And sometimes even that is hard. Can you try that? Just 5 minutes at a time? Don't think beyond the next 5 minutes.

If you feel you have caused pain and heartache maybe it would help you to talk about it with someone that can be objective and non judgmental. All of us have caused hurt in others to some degree even nice wonderful people can make huge mistakes sometimes.
