    I don't know where to start this is a rant basically I had a difficult childhood and was diagnosed with depression. At age 21 I got admitted to a mental hospital for paranoid schizophrenia which I stayed there for 6 weeks I got my first proper job at age 22 but I only finished 2 years of uni considering doing my final year in a few years time. Then at age 23 I ended up back in the mental hospital for schizoeffective disorder which I stayed there for 4 months. I lost my job and I'm still on the medication sertraline 75mg sodium valproate 500mg and clopixol injections 200mg which I've gained 130 pounds in the last 5 years I'm now 25 a virgin unemployed fat and I don't know where to start to get myself feeling better and I feel useless any suggestions on how I can get my life back on track I'm a female by the way thanks

    I think you need to start taking small steps. If this was me, I'd make a list of things I want to do. For example, you mention unemployed and your weight. If you focus on sorting one of them out first, get yourself at a stage where you're happy with one and then work on another, I think it'll be easier.

    What you don't want to do is, make a list and do all at once. A friend did that and found she failed and gave up completely with doing one of the things she wanted to achieve.

    If you can, break each one down into a manageable chunk.
