yes sometimes i think i would of been happier living in a f n mud hut somewhere,my depression is caused by me feeling unlovable,and worthless and no good at anything,i just want someone to love me and how pathetic is that but im sure thats just something everyone needs,1 was in care when child and so my black blanket stems from then,and the fact im attracted to bad shit and bad men,repeating and confirming my inner thoughts,im tired of it, as instead of getting better as im getting older im getting bloody worse,i often daydream of dying and it doesn't scare me because i know i wont be suffering anymore.i hope i come back born where the mud huts and the close knit familys are.anti depressents made me worse so im fighting this thing all on my own,just like everything else.

i have no idea who i am anymore. i have no real emotions. i get cranky easy. i feel like there's nobody who truly cares about me.. and so alone. its weird.. i have no ambition to do well in school or anything anymore. everything you guys are saying i can relate to so well, which is the only thing making me happy right now. i feel no connection to the real world, and could care less what all my friends are saying. most of the time i am annoyed by their drama and stories.. i feel so dead and asleep all the time. i feel like ive been in a dream for a long time that i just cant wake up from.. i just want to feel real emotions again and really connect with other people, but i just cant for some reason and it really upsets me. i find myself feeling stressed out a lot and always feeling tired. i never know if im actually sick or not because i always feel sick.. nothing seems important to me anymore. ive never told anyone this before.. mainly because i dont know how to.. my parents think im just a huge screw-up, but they dont know whats really running through my mind. i hide these feelings so well that nobody could tell how truly unhappy i am. i wish i could feel alive again... or just sleep forever. i just want someone to be able to tell that theres something wrong with me or to believe me when i say i'm trying.. its so hard going through life just getting criticized on everything you do, without really knowing what youre doing wrong..

You sound as if you've drifted into a depression because what you've described are classic symptoms of depression. Talk to your parents and level with them and see if they won't make an appointment with your doctor. A short time on a good anti-depressant,(if there is any such thing), might help you get back to normal.

Prayer and reading from your bible if you are a believer will help overcome more than any anti-depressant. But if you aren't, then try and find some coping strategies, such as exercise, reading to relax, spending time with positive friends.

Even going outside and sunbathing can release endorphins that will lift your spirits.

And.... come back and talk anytime you feel the need. Sometimes that helps as much as anything.

God bless you. I hope you get to feeling better soon :)

I googled "not feeling real" and this came up...
to "IT Was ME" from the very beginning of this post (i didnt bother reading everything there was too many posts)..

ive been cutting for like 3 weeks now.. and I have these feelings of nothing feeling real. I think I suffer from depression before I even started cutting but then this just made it worse. When I drive a car I imagine crashing into things I drive by and I cant imagine anything happeneing.. I get no feelings of remorse.. Its like I live in a video game...

I feel sometimes that while im skateboarding if I get hit by a car, nothing would happen..

its just like nothing is really real to me

Help does anybody get these feelings??

Yes, and yes.
So much of the time, off and on for years.
It's when I'm at my worse.

"I found this"

People who are diagnosed with borderline personality disorder have at least five of the following symptoms. They may:1

Make frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment.
Have a pattern of difficult relationships caused by alternating between extremes of intense admiration and hatred of others.
Have an unstable self-image or be unsure of his or her own identity.
Act impulsively in ways that are self-damaging, such as extravagant spending, frequent and unprotected sex with many partners, substance abuse, binge eating, or reckless driving.
Have recurring suicidal thoughts, make repeated suicide attempts, or cause self-injury through mutilation, such as cutting or burning himself or herself.
Have frequent emotional overreactions or intense mood swings, including feeling depressed, irritable, or anxious. These mood swings usually only last a few hours at a time. In rare cases, they may last a day or two.
Have long-term feelings of emptiness.
Have inappropriate, fierce anger or problems controlling anger. The person may often display temper tantrums or get into physical fights.
Have temporary episodes of feeling suspicious of others without reason (paranoia) or losing a sense of reality.
Not everyone who has five or more of these symptoms is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. For a person to be diagnosed with any personality disorder, the symptoms must be severe and must go on long enough to cause significant emotional distress or problems functioning in relationships or at work.1

You may have temporary episodes of psychosis (paranoia and a loss of a sense of reality) with borderline personality disorder, especially when you are going through a personal crisis. This psychosis usually does not last very long.

I looked it up too. Looks like this BPD ??
But, I have some of these symtoms too. All of yours.
So, do I have BPD ? My doctors say it's depression.
I have anxiety 24/7. I've been in a psychosis state before, a few times. So, I'm confused myself.........
I cut. I try not to, I have kids. So, it's been a while. I broke down a couple of years ago and did cut. 6 stitches. Yep, worth it.
I felt so much relief. The weight of the world was off my back, out of my head, and flowing down the drain - if just for a while.
I dissasociate (spelling ?). I've been doing it since I was a kid.
I'm good if I can control it. If I can't, well that's not good.
But, I do use it all the time. I can close my eyes and go somewhere. Anywhere but here in my head.
The feelings of running into things when I'm driving or your skateboarding ?? Well, I've been there too. No feelings, numb. Nothing. But, that was depression with psycosis. That was years ago.
I wish I could tell you what would help ? I just don't know.
I know the feelings went away over time. They sneak back in here and there.
It's hard though. I feel for all the posters above. I'm very depressed right now.
Question Mike ? Are you on any meds ?
See a doctor ?? New meds ? Anything change for you ?

Sorry. I see you are talking to someone.
Ya, I think antidepressents work.
It's playing musical pills is what drives me nuts.
Some have made me worse. Just be careful of what you take.
Talk it over with the more knowing people here.
I don't know much about the new meds they have out. I'm on an old on.

All the time. have you ever looked someone in the eye while they were talking and got an undescribible feeling of "wow, I'm talking to eyeballs and that's it" but of course as i was thinking that, i missed what the person was saying because i was distracted by that "fearful" thought...

the other day i was driving and i started to feel like the cars around me werent real and i was floating along in my car and i felt like i was on a cloud or something, being propelled forward uncontrollably, and then all of a sudden i started to feel a psychosis feeling like i was losing control of my own mind and started to panic and had to drive home asap

i think it is something that happens out of isolation and depression as i had not left the house for like 2 days before that and had done nothing but watch tv.

and i also get the feeling sometimes that other ppl arent real and their lives arent real and things arent real and maybe the whole world is just all in my head and i am the center of my own world and these other ppl and things have no purpose exept to exist briefly in the world which is my conciousness but once they are out of my vision they cease to exist

and i am so sick of other ppl and their stupid lives and drama and complaining and talking all the time who cares and cant they just shut up and i even feel this way about my own family and i just cant wait to get away from people
