What's the point of living like this? That is all I ask. I've been dealing with this now for at least 5 years and it keeps getting worse. Depression is soooo bad. Sooooo bad. So, again what is the point? I'm enjoying NOTHING that I do. I am just living because I feel I have no other alternative. But, again what is the point? Why should someone have to suffer so badly and have to live like this?
What is the point??

Merely wondered.

I am sorry you feel this way. I know how you feel. Many times I have this despair, I TRULY know how you feel. It's like peaks, or waves, sometimes It's unbearable. You are depressed, and need to treat your depression first.

Don't give up, we all know how you feel, you're not alone, you'll get better.

i feel the same at the moment...

just ask what is the point...

but then i think to myself that i need to make 'the point'....

no one else can make your life worthwhile...you need to do something that gives a point to your life...

for me i find that my 'point' is to help others who are ill...in need...disabled...diseased....

just because i feel so bad does not mean everyone else needs to...i try and do what i can to help others enjoy their life....and maybe find that little spark that will help me enjoy my life...

there is a point in living....

if we knew the point when we were born...would we just take advantage and not try things out?

hang in there kelson12...

i know this might not help...but i do know what you mean....i feel like i am having to live and not want to live....but as i am hear...i better start amking life easier and more comfortable...

take care...

I've been askin myself what is the point alot lately, since my dp has entered a new deeeeeeeeeeeeeeep level. It's getting worse. I'm a stranger to everyone around me, and my surroundings. And I finally got that stranger in the mirror thing. I don't connect with him anymore.

I'm a musician. And the goal and the dream was to always achieve something in music. Now I know, that if I did, I would feel nothing because DP has made me a stranger to myself. I live because I have to. But its just a dream

I've asked that question so many times that now ppl think i'm suicidal. i think you do have to make a point out of it. i personally think i'm going through this to better understand/change myself, and to put my life to better use, like shadowness and the dalai lama said, the only real purpose in life is to help other less fortunate people. all i was doing is partying, making money to buy myself more gadgets, while people all over the world are dying.

one day i saw this blind man in the NY subway. I can't possibly even imagine how hard being blind must be! but he was still riding the subway, going places, living, and even smiling. then i realised that i just been whining too much. life is not always fair, but i still have it much better than a lot of other people. it's just a matter of adapting, accepting it, and moving on. easier said than done.

Hi Kelson,

I don't guess I can tell you what your point is... just that I know you have one. How can I know you have one? Because you reach out to people and you touch people in trying to find yourself. In doing this, I know you have a point. And so, there is your crazy lady talk for the day.

Wishing better days for you.

My point is that tomorrow there could be better answers than today.
Tomorrow there could be new meds or therapies or pure understanding. We don't know, but we hope. Hope is my point.
I would not want to miss this when it happens.
I also, even in the midst of these stunting and stifling symptoms, find moments that that tell me life is good too. I am talking about a good meal, a good joke, a baby's joyful countenance, a chevy truck, and nature. And whatever else gives one jsut a wee bit of a shot of endorphins. I would not want to miss even these small moments, even though I may not feel them as deeply as others. I want to stick around.

So sorry life is hard for you at present,Kelson.

You pinched my words....."what's the point" these are the words I repeat to myself when I'm depressed,it's my depression speaking, it's not the real me :)

A psychologist once told me that these words are a recipe for further depression because they don't allow for hope.Have to admit what he said hit home.

One point could be that no matter how terrible we feel,if we try hard enough we can find something in life to be grateful for.
Maybe it's a sunset,the breeze blowing through the trees,a bird chirping,lovely kind replies from others who feel our pain..........honestly it's endless,there is always something.

Wishing you all the best Kelson,hope things pick up soon.
