I feel like my life has just completely stalled out at this point. I'm just dead in the water. I have no ambitions, no goals, no plans. Lately I've found myself unable to get excited about even things like games and movies, so now I have nothing at all to look forward to. I can't keep going like this.

How do I get myself out of this rut and get some drive back? How do I figure out what I actually want to do with my life?

depression ?

Well, yeah. I am depressed and I know it, but that's not likely to change any time soon. Every day I just put on a happy face, go to work as if I'm not dead inside, and hope nobody finds out.

I really don't want to have to deal with the stigma of having a mental illness. I've hard the way my family talks about my aunt who seems to be in the same boat I am.

I've tried antidepressants before when I was prescribed them for anxiety. It was a terrible experience.

The stigma is real and it hurts. I know. I can freely talk about my mood disorder and anxiety and eating disorder with my housemates and classmates easily but not with my own extended family. The thing is, you need to fuck the fear of stigma and do what's right for you, OP. if you need to take meds, do it. If you need counselling, do it. Do it for yourself and don't give a fuck what others around you think because you know what you need and your health, mental, emotional, and physical, is worth it. You're worth it.

I often wish I had had someone I could talk to about this kind of stuff.

I guess I'll have to figure out how to ditch this depression before I figure out what I'm doing with my life. Need to save up some money first, since I'm sure my garbage insurance plan doesn't cover a single cent of mental health treatment.

Figuring out how to deal with your depression is doing something with your life anon. And there might be some local support groups you can get connected with where there are people irl like us who know and understand that you can talk with. I'm always on these boards looking for people like you and me to encourage and be encouraged in the dark moments.
