Depressed because I'm lazy and vice versa Watch

    Over the past three years I've developed moderate depression and I'm fairly certain that the reason I am depressed and have very very low self esteem is because I'm lazy and unmotivated. I'm actually stuggling to write this because I don't know where to begin.

    I'm 20. I was bullied ALL THE TIME (almost literally) at school and that drove my confidence and self-esteem to the ground. When I went to uni I found it close to impossible to make new friends because I was depressed at the time and that made concentrating on work all the more harder. For the past two years AT LEAST I haven't done one single piece of good work and my grades are poor because of it (the only thing I really had going for me was academia) and I come from a middle-upper class family who had to earn their way up so this situation makes it even more heartbreaking.

    I was fortunate enough to get a full-time job in the summer, which lasted two weeks because the boss sacked me for poor performance (quite frankly, I would have sacked myself too).

    My room is an absolute mess. I take pride in hygeine but every time I look in the mirror or a photo of myself my heart sinks. I spend too much money on dvd's and things and am broke a lot, so I have to go to my dad and ask for more money. I'm just so COMPLETELY unmotivated and I wish I wasn't. I just regret not doing so much more when I was younger because I have been so fortunate to be in such a loving family and a comfortable lifestyle.

    I have had serious thoughts about suicide which I know is stupid because I know full well that I don't have it anywhere near as bad as some people. I just want some advice on where to begin to sort my life out, because three years is a long time and I've had enough.
