I'm 21 male and I have never felt so down in my whole life... I had to force my self to eat before and the smell was making me feel sick, I have no one to talk to it feels as though I am just trapped in my own body but I wan't to be able to get out of it. I always feel as though what ever happens its just my fault... I have a girlfriend and a baby but we don't even talk to each other although I do try its just ever since I started feeling like this ive just pushed everything out of the way. I just look forward to going to bed because I can't stand being awake! I have lost all my friends and while my girlfriend is going out I'm just sat here running things through my head. I don't even have no concentration anymore sometimes I will have a day where I feel happy but that only last for a few hours but today is unreal. Sorry this is all mixed up its just I don't know how to say. this is the first time I have ever even told someone about it I just keep it all in....

Hi Sorry you feel so low

Don't keep it all in ... share it with others. Tell your girlfriend how you feel... come here and talk to us. We are here to help. You do not want to isolate yourself. It will only make you feel worse. Try to surround yourself with family and friends. You have a lot to live for and your baby needs you. I would strongly urge you to seek counseling. Go to your doctor. There are medications that can help. No shame in asking for help. It will help you be a better person and a better father.

Why do you think things are your fault? What has happened that you feel you are to blame? You are young, don't give up hope. If you are not eating then that would explain your lack of concentration and desire to just sleep. Continue to force yourself to eat. You need it. Again, I urge you to talk to those closest to you including your girlfriend and explain your feelings. She may be blaming herself or think that you no longer love her or the baby. Don't let it all end simply because you could not be honest with her. You are the father of her child and she wants you to be well. Hang in there.
I don't feel like anyone would ever believe me. My girlfriend calls me all sorts and says she wouldn't care if I was to walk out the door she blames me for everything but she just doesn't know I am struggling I have asked her for help but she doesn't seem to take it in. But today I am really at my worst! I had loads of friends at one point, I was really popular then just lost everyone I don't know how to talk to anyone any more because it just feels like no one cares. I have just been pretending that things will get better but they won't I don't really wan't to carry one but I know I have to for my baby because I don't wan't to leave him plus I'm to much of a coward to take my own life. I can't even be bothered visiting my doctor because I don't feel like they can help or anyone :(
You must really love her and your family, would I be right in saying you are sad because she doesn't stand by you? Sometimes it is nice when your partner would listen to you when all you want is their love and understanding.

Don't lose hope. I also agree that part of the reason you feel so low is because your girlfriend does not understand you. You guys are young and perhaps you were not ready for the responsibility of a relationship and parenthood. Please please tell your doctor. You need counseling. A professional can help you start feeling more like yourself. At the very least, come back here and let it all out. You will feel better. Maybe too you and your girlfriend need a break from each other. Once the blame game starts, that is a sign you need some space. What happened that she blames you?

You can't just pretend things will get better and do nothing to change them. Focus on your baby, on your baby's laugh and love. You are not a coward for choosing life. It is so much harder to struggle through your problems. Suicide solves nothing. Don't cheat your baby out of a father. Hope I hear back
