i feel like I'm nothing but a burden and a disappointment to my family. I keep thinking bout how they would be better off without me around like maybe if I disappeared then they wouldn't have to worry bout me. I lie saying I'm ok cause I don't wanna talk bout my feelings or talk bout my depression so I force a smile and say I'm ok when I'm not.

I am adopted and my adoptive family is gone. I never had any brothers or sisters. I have two children with which I am not communicating with, or should I say they don't want to communicate with me. I haven't seen my grandson who will be 2 next month for several months, and my two grandchildren where put in foster care because my house wasn't good enough for KVC. Trying to keep positive as I try to do repairs myself, but I have no help. It gets really depressing. Sometimes I think, what's the point. No one really cares anyway.
