Good morning @dianrib and welcome to Connect. We’re a group of individuals, all with our own health problems, who try to help each other through their health journey. I have asked a moderator to move your posting to a group where you’ll get more notice and help.
You do sound down and nothing is going right. Can you tell me a little more about yourself? How long have you had these feelings? Becky

@dianrib, it sounds like you find yourself in a dark and lonely place again. Financial stress is making things worse. I'd like to direct you back to the earlier discussion you were participating in here:

– Importance of focusing on Positive with Depression & Anxiety. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/importance-of-focusing-on-positive-with-depression-anxiety/?pg=41

Connect is a safe place where members can talk openly about the tough stuff.
