I find myself questioning my existence daily now. I think about what it would be like to just no longer exist - and what a relief it might be instead of just seeing wallowing in misery all of the time. It seems like this is my regular mindset and I don’t know what to do. I like anyone recommend meds? Is it time for that? I don’t really want to go that route, but I also know that I can’t continue to live like this either.
