I don't believe you're a worthless person or a freak. It sounds like you're very down at the moment. Has something happened or do you feel like this a lot? If you do maybe you should see a doctor. You could be depressed, like a lot of people on this site.

If we can't stand alone to help ourselves,
with support we shall stand together
to make the changes and a difference within our lives
and the lives of all for the better.

You're only 18 and have a whole life ahead of you. If it turns out you are depressed and you start getting treatment for it, things will start to seem a lot brighter. You'll be able to think about the kind of life you want to live and how you can make that happen. It's very very hard to deal with depression on your own. But with the right treatment and support you will pull through. First step is to see a doctor.
Lots of love

You are talking to us here and that takes great courage. If you are afraid to talk to someone, a professional, you could always print what you typed here and hand it to them. The professionals will know how to make you feel at ease. You are far from worthless, you are in a deep dark hole of depression and there is help out there for you. You are not alone in the way that you feel. Please take the next step and talk to a professional, you can feel better.

You definitely should see a doctor about this. Depression is a serious illness that takes so much out of your life. I know the idea of revealing this side of yourself to anybody is daunting, but you must if you are to get treatment for it. If it makes you feel any better, talking about it with people generally gets easier the more you do it :)
I have the same hang-up about having 'no life'. I used to have friends but they've all moved on. They all seem to be having fun, doing something with their lives while I'm stuck in a rut. The thing is, you have to see this not as a result of you being inherently a bad person but a result of having depression. You wouldn't call a person with a broken leg a loser because they can't walk. Having depression is the same thing. Depression de-motivates you, makes you feel awful about yourself and the world all the time, so no wonder you aren't going out living the life you want. So don't beat yourself up about it :)
Anyway, I hope that helps. Take care.
