Sorry to hear you're feeling like this at the moment. It does sounds like depression, the way you are describing it. I have felt the exact same symptoms before - the emptiness, feeling very alone, full of regret, no hope or excitement about anything. So I feel for you if you're going through this too. It's very common to get the horrible intrusive thoughts if you're feeling this way. Try not to take those thoughts seriously if you can. Try and think of a better life and aim for that and don't let the intrusive thoughts tell you otherwise. Anything is possible. You might want to see a doctor if you are feeling really bad. They will likely want to prescribe a medication - it's entirety up to you if you want to take it or not. Hopefully you won't need it and time will be the healer but either way, there is a way to better times ahead no matter how bad you feel right now.

I relate to alot of those feelings too. I really feel for you. Ive been in some really deep depression at times, i still kinda am. Those imtrusive thoughts just come and get worse and make everything seem so much more pointless. It can really feel like theres nothing to strive for...but just remember that life is meaningful and love is what makes life so grand. Your life, like everyone elses is a miracle and unique with its own essence.

As Where also said, this too shall pass. For me, i needed medication to feel better recently but sometimes i dont need it to feel better. All i can say is try to do the things that you used to enjoy, even if u dont see the point in doing so at the moment.

I haven't enjoyed a single waking moment or had any ability to think positively about life since early 2018, i feel like a shell. The only thing that keeps me going is the 'this too shall pass' mantra

SSRIs (specifically fluoxetine/prozac) have pulled me out of deep depressions that I wouldn't have been able to get out of otherwise. However, they leave enduring withdrawal after effects that have lasted for a year and more after stopping the medication. I have a love/hate relationship with medication. I'm currently fighting depression by using other methods and am throwing everything at it but it mostly feels like a losing battle. My latest addition to treatment is the purchase of a SAD (seasonal affective disorder) Lamp. I'm going to try it for a month and if it has no effect then I think I will have to seriously consider medication again. The winter always turns me into a wreck no matter how good my mental state is at the end of the summer so I have to do all I can to avoid going through that again.

i feel like this close to summer, in winter im in a much better mood since winter brings me inner peace idk i think is because summer here is waaay too hot. i noticed my depression comes back withh a feeling of isolation i NEED people around me to feel better i cant stand te feeling of being lonely
