      My mind keeps telling me it’s too late for my life to ever change positively.

        We all want you to get better, but the fact is you think external validation is the only way to get there. Accepting yourself first is the answer.

        Who knows? As many times as you've pondered this, do you not remember that some of the people who say that are only too willing to tell you why they say it? And it was never fun hearing their *reasons.* Ask them, if you're feeling masochistic and just want to hear it again.

        Sometimes they really believe that they are *only trying to help you.* Sometimes, I imagine, there are just some mean jerky people that you encounter. And other times, people aren't even saying that, but you interpret it that way.

        I would not recomend anybody with clinical depression starting a new relation or being parent untill they got into a more balanced mental state. That said, I have no idea of why those people told you that.

        I have no bond with my entire extended family except for one of my uncles, his wife, and his daughter. The rest of my family hates me and they have said that. My family is completely divided on politics and social justice issues, and my parents and I, and my uncle’s family, have been kind of pushed out of the circle in recent years.
        I think being estranged from family members is more common than you might think.

        Because you have a terrible attitude and are extremely pessimistic. Almost all of your posts are negative. Instead of saying "why is life better for others" you could say "why is *my* life better then others" its all about attitude and perspective.

        You're an author. To make this more interesting say "I will sever my family's web." Put it in active case & roll on from there. You won't fail; you'll either win or learn.

        @Markness You're saying you find that your thought process is more fluid when you using Adderall? Chemical stimulation isn't necessarily the answer (ie coffee/caffeine).

        No, read that closer & apply to reality. You have been saying nearly that exact same thing for years & it has gotten you more of the same. Why not try a different tactic? Those have been giving you a little bit of good results.
