I would like to know why it is that I always want to just break down and cry for no apparent reason what so ever. I take prozac but have not taken it for six months. I feel so worthless like nothing i ever do is good enough for people. I can only do so much for what position in life I am in right now. I try my hardest and feel it is not good enough. I feel like committing suicide but I cannot go thru with it. I need advice on help and some sort of a support system I think.

It definitely sounds like you have symptoms of depression, they gave you meds and you're having thoughts of suicide. I have had depression, meds, and thoughts of suicide. I survived, and I also saw the effects of my friend Erica's suicide. I saw how hurt those she left behind were, all the friends and family. Choose to live. I do. Why do I? I found a reason in my faith. I believe God has us here for a purpose. I believe he saved my life for a purpose. If you get to know God, you will find your purpose, too. Please try and get some Christian counseling, and ask them for a good church home group to join, one where you can share about the depression. In the Bible, the book of Ecclesiastes talks about the seeming pointlessness of life, how everything is vanity-but at it's end, the author finds there is a point in life... to follow God, to love your job, and enjoy your life with God.
