The flood waters will recede and the hope you are looking for will be hanging on to you.
Day by day it will get stronger.

You have reached the right place and put your seat belt back on, the road will be a bit bumpy now and then. Then it's back to enjoying life as a participant, not a bystander.

I know how that feels. Every time someone says to me something like "you're a good guy" or "you're good at [x]", it just guts me because I feel I have wasted my personality - my life - or, I think it's just futile to expend any effort on trying to do anything because it's bound to fail, and it's even harder for something I might care about because knowing I've failed at something I really enjoy would be impossible to bear.

Sometimes people trying to be understanding makes the pain worse.

It's not what you've lost, but it's what you've found

MDR --

I just wanted to let you know how incredibly similar your own story is to mine, including age and biographical details. When I read your posts, I can see your ups and downs and they remind me of myself. But its funny, because when you are pissed off or hopeless, it is much easier for me to recognize that you're just beating yourself up. Seeing when I am doing the same thing is very, very hard. That whole rush of feelings and craziness that you described upon first getting here sounds very healthy.

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know someone is out here reading what you wrote and rooting for you (and all of us) to take your life in your own hands and never feel that horrible sense of doom and failure again.
