So Sad and AngryFeelingsSo Sad and Angry<div class="ExternalClassAC5F565BCD7E4F3FB9F07B0BA9D7EFA2"><p>​<span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4" style="">I'm feeling so sad and angry. When I start to feel better my conscience reminds me that its all temporary that there's no point of living and trying if we're all going to die in the end. It is making it so hard to have fun and enjoy things I used to. When I seek help from friends Iget the normal response of its going to be okay, stay positive, find something you enjoy and focus on that. Those kinds of responses make me so angry because I just can't enjoy anything anymore and whenever I say something positive my conscience backs it up with something way more negative. I've read some posts on the bulletin board and see the link to coping skills but that's not what I want. I don't want to cope or distract myself from my feelings. I want to get better. I want someone to be brutally honest to me. I want help and at this point I don't have anywhere else to go.  </span></p></div><div class="ExternalClass9CD16FE6D14F4857ADEDD211E3D08A20"><p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4" style="">We are glad you reached out to us.
