I agree with Tomatheus. You need more support than you are currently receiving. This bad time will pass, but it would be so much less painful were you to utilize the psychiatric and psychotherapeutic resources available to you.

I don't know your personal history. Tomatheus made mention of sexual abuse. A childhood history of repeated traumas or neglect can set one up for mental illness later in life. Trauma causes the brain to react by reducing the number of neurons in structures normally activated by the trauma. There is actually a thinning of tissue - whether it be in the hippocampus, prefrontal cortex, or amygdala. My doctor has found that prazosin, an old drug used for hypertension and PTSD, can produce robust results in such cases. For me, it produces a significant antidepressant effect when combined with the other drugs I take.

You have treatment and support options, but you will have to accept that you will feel bad for just a little while longer.

You have friends here.
