Okay so I am a 20 year old female and I am in crisis I am not going to hurt my self but I am on the edge. I was diagnosed with Dysthymia when I was 14 and it just got worse from there. I have no job I just dropped out of college for the 3rd time and I am basically homeless. I am living with my aunt (Also she does not believe in mental issues and is very upset with me because of mine) and this is my last chance before I am put out on the streets. I feel empty, flat, and without purpose. All I do all day is lay in the bed and cry, and when I'm not crying I'm doing meaningless things like playing computer games to distract my self form my anxieties and emotions. I don't know what to do I can't keep living this way I pray and pray trying to do something, but I don't know what to do. I really really need help, but I have no income and I can't even find the energy to get out of bed probably because I have insomnia caused by my depression. If someone has any information that can help me please tell me.
