i feel like i may die soon.
i don't really eat.
i used to never say i love you alot to my best friend, now i do.
i'm having problems with my arms.
frustrated with living at home, and watching my friends go to college, thanks to getting help from their folks, and work.
no luck yet getting work - feel like my resume's overqualified for where i live.
i have watched Walt Disney's 1961 version of 'The Parent Trap' 3 to 4 weeks in a row almost every night.
getting frustrated with having to do alot at home, with little respect.
the internet - my friends online are now rarely talkative at all.
although, there is afew good things about my life:
my best friend
my former chemistry teacher

i know i wouldn't kill myself, but it is possible to become so depressed or feel like your spirit has died, so that even though you walk around and communicate, it feels like your dead in a sense.
thank you for reading.

Everyone has their ups and do

Everyone has their ups and downs, some natural, some situational. Many times, "smaller" bouts of depression will go away on their own, but I think in your situation, seeking help would be advisable. Feeling bad is one thing, but thinking you might die soon is something else.

Dude!

1. Go outside and take a DEEP breath and look at the world!
2. Talk to someone that you feel close to!
3. Take a road trip! It's summer and the weather will help
you feel better. Sometimes getting out is all it takes.
You can actually get vitamins from the sunlight that's
good for depression (vitamin D).
4. Talk to a counselor. They can help. Or better yet, talk to
a cleryman. They have access to the BEST help out there!
5. Don't feel too bad about the "work" thing. The economy is
presently in the tank, but things will get better. Just keep
at it. Something will turn up. Try submitting the resume
in areas other than your local area.
6. Get a physical. Maybe something physiological is out of whack
and the doctor can find it out. There are meds out there to
balance the body chemistry.
7. And on the lighter side...try watching some other movies and
don't OD on Disney!

Hope things turn around for ya! Don't give up.

Dude, that's a problem in itself Wink

Seriously, though, if you feel like you need to rant, rave, bitch, moan, whine, beg, or cry... email me.

Go and watch "Animal House." You can't not laugh at that movie.

your health

going from "i think i'm dying" on june 1 to "i'm feeling much better" on june 4 is rather quick. this could be signs of bigger medical problems.

i strongly suggest you consult a doctor.

good luck.
