This depression is weighing me down too much. I feel like I'm not worth the air I breathe and people are better off if I'm not around.

I can't seem to get this "logging in" thing
This is the first trivia night I went to, but I had a good time. If more people come to it, we might have to break into two teams!

[With the disagreeing, that is.]

My 2 cents.
I get like this all the time. I've been this way for years.
I don't know what will help you, but here are suggestions that have been helpful in my case (I come from a family filled with the clinically depressed and have a total of 2 years psychiatric help on this issue):
1. Exercise. It doesn't have to be alot. At all. You don't have to like go out and try to get buff or lose weight. Just make sure to stretch out your muscles every day and use your whole body in some activity. It's really easy. Using your WHOLE BODY is the key here. 15 minutes a day. try it. (Seems irrelevent, or like stupid ignoring-the-issue-advice, but it's not, I swear.)
2. If you are comparing yourself to others, that needs to stop. You MUST figure out YOUR purpose and stick to it. That then means you're a winnar. You have to have some goal to work on at all times (internal or external). Any goal. Achieving small goals makes you ready for bigger ones. Then you can only go up. As long as your goals are consistent with your values, once you've reached a sequence of goals you will feel rad at the end. For me I found dramatic changes were necessary in my life. Hence moving to Yellowstone. This made me realize I can do anything. Seems cheesy or cliche, but it's real stuff.
3. Stop drinking. Just try it for a bit. Replace with H20. Water will loosen the knots in your muscles and therefore tension. Alcohol is poison. If you're depressed, you really should stop drinking for a while.

I could go on, but try these. I know your depression goes deeper than all these things, but remember that coming out of it has to be a CONSCIOUS process, and you must concentrate! You are a great person, you're fun, you're good times. You just have to believe that. From the inside, not from others' feedback/perceived feedback.

Good luck and if you want to talk ever, because like I have so been there alot, shoot me an email and tell me when you're online.. SMOOCHIE BOOCHIES!

Man, I miss those lengthy well-thought out responses from you Sherah.

Er, and I don't mean that in a snarky/passive-agressive way.
