Reasons for a doctor visit

Sometimes, I just want to quit.

Quit school... quit my life.

not commit suicide, no, just cease to exist.

this obviously makes me a bad person, I know.

what good person could feel this way with all I have?

School, a home, a loving boyfriend and family...

and its not good enough to fix me.

 

Anxiety grips me tightly and depression holds me hostage

Nothing seems worth the trouble.

I am not satisfied, but cannot be bothered to change.

 

I feel worthless, like I mean nothing,

like i AM nothing.

How dare I feel so terrible when there aree so many living worse lives than I?

people are starving and dying in the streets and I hate my life?

 

The struggle to maintain control is exhausting.

I agonize and lose sleep, i snap at those around me.

Its easier not to care, simpler to distract myself than to deal

distraction is a double edged sword

I am okay for a while, but am punished with a feeling of uselessness when I accomplish nothing

How long can a person go on feeling this way?

Its clear Im not strong to take it.

Perhaps drugs could dull the ache... and mask the hurt within.
