i don't know what to do with myself. i never feel like i'm good enough or have the capability to be good enough, and hearing "it gets better" hasn't done me any good. i'm a mess and it's like nothing works. i'm not normal and i'm not capable like everyone else is. my boyfriend is just as depressed and so relying on him isn't an option right now because he needs me to rely on, so it just feels like i've got nowhere to go. i'm running out of options.

in response to what you said about your boyfriend: make sure you don't fall for the trap of co-dependence. a lot of times partners can be very helpful for your mental health. however, if you both are unequipt to handle your own emotions, there is a good chance you won't be able to deal with the other person's as well. make sure you deal with your own issues first before taking responsibility for him. i wish you the best. despite what you may think, it really can get better. it takes hard work and it won't be pleasant, but you can do it. you can be normal again if you find some help. i believe in you./
