    What do you do when you have nothing left in the tank?

    When every interaction with others leaves you cold?

    When everything around you screams how ugly, pathetic & worthless you are?

    I don’t know. Any ideas?

    When I get to feeling like that I usually take a break from people. Do things that I like that don't involve anyone else. Not sure if that would work for you, but hope it helps :)

    I feel like that almost every day. But I try to focus on the rare good things that happen.

    I started therapy and after a few weeks already I felt myself changing. If that is not an option for you, have you tried emailing with someone from this community? Friendly words that you can save and read whenever you need them most might help.

    I can understand how depressed you must be feeling. I found two BOOKS that may be helpful. Both have won a truckload of awards. See their reviews on Amazon.com for complete details. "BREAKING OUT OF LONELINESS" and "HOW TO SURVIVE THE LOSS OF A LOVE".

    My default is to wallow. Curl into a ball, hide, avoid, retract into myself.

    However, I know deep down—and this has been confirmed by countless experiences—that some time spent in nature can be an effective antidote to this state of mind.
    Nature is fundamentally neutral. It doesn’t pass judgment, or demands. For me, a long walk in the woods, alone, feels a bit like “going home.”

    If you have access to nature, try to take advantage of it—particularly when you feel this way.
