I just wanted to reach out to people really, as I don't feel I can in person and I try to hide my feelings from my family and friends. The slightest thing can set me off in a spiral of depression and sadness. Just typing this has got me nearlly crying. It's not like I have nothing as I am married, with a child and a decent job but I have suffered depression for most of my life and OCD and I know I get it from my dad has he has suffered with severe depression and he has been on a lot of medication for half my life, but I do not want to end up like that. I have tried medication before but it never works for me apart from making me more tired than ever.
6 years ago I attempted suicide but I think it was more of a cry for help and I have never felt that bad since until recently. I am always on edge and I can't relax, the slightest thing puts me on edge and I get agitated. I can't get close to my family or anybody and I just want to be alone most days. I just feel so low and trapped and don't know what to do.
