I don't really want to ctb but I don't know what else to do. It feels like I ought to, and I'm terrified of what might happen if I don't. I've stopped asking friends for support and I don't trust my therapist. I guess I'm just asking for support.

Why have you stopped asking friends for support? What is your diagnosis, if I may ask?

OCD and depression. I never had many friends I felt safe asking for support anyway, and with the ones I did feel safe around, I don't want them to cut me out of their lives for always being so miserable. And I feel so pathetic when I do reach out and admit how badly I'm doing. Like, my ex is getting married, and I'm just completely stuck with no sign of being unstuck any time soon. I know you shouldn't compare yourself to others, but I don't know how not to. And I hate feeling jealous and angry, and I'm scared those feelings will get strong enough that I'll actually hurt someone, and I'd rather ctb than do that.

I talk to my therapist weekly, but I think we're not a great fit, and I don't feel seen or understood by them. In any case, I don't feel up to trying to keep waking up anymore. I think I'm unfixable at this point. So my options are either to ctb or just languish in isolation. And the second option feels more shameful than the first. Obviously I should just stop wallowing and keep going but it doesn't feel like there's a good reason to. I don't think I'll ever love someone or be loved again. I feel so pathetic for even being here and writing this. Like I'm obviously fishing for pity and it's gross.

I’m sorry you’re feeling that way. Have you thought about changing your therapist? I know that’s not always possible though. You can always vent in here tho:) don’t rush things and take some time to figure out what exactly you wanna do

Most of people here didn’t know what they are looking for. You will find your answer one day.
