Don’t Know What I am Doing

By March 22, 2024No Comments

Idk what I’m doing anymore
Hey. I’ve written on here before, but I feel like I’m getting worse. My depression isn’t getting better and my mom is just making it so much worse. She makes me feel like dying. I have no one to talk to, I don’t have my phone. I have no way of talking to anyone about this. My meds are not helping me at all. And I know I need help but I don’t really wanna leave my boyfriend. But I honestly wanna die. I feel like he is the only person keeping me alive right now, because my family hates me.
