Personally, I'll go with the not competant thing, from my experiences

Nobody with depression like mines ever finds happiness in anything. They go through there entire lives this way. There is no escaping it. It's always there, always taunting me and belittling me. I'm stuck with it forever.
Fraser, I'm sorry because I know I've asked you this a million times but which meds have you tried?

Maybe your situation is totally different but I used to think that my depression was so deep rooted and fundamental (and entirely deserved) that nothing, not even medication could change it. I thought medication won't change my situation so how could I ever feel better. I was so depressed that I didn't even feel like being anything else. Nothing seemed worth it. Everything seemed futile and hopeless. I was convinced that it didn't just seem so but that everything in fact was futile and hopeless

Then I tried anti depressants and for two three weeks they worked like a charm. Suddenly I felt lighter, as if the stone I'd been carrying around for nearly a decade had suddenly shrunk.

They have never worked since but these two weeks made me believe that maybe there is something physical to this state. More importantly it showed me that everything was actually not futile or hopeless but it just seemed so when depressed.

I know I'm not the right person to give advice. I'm fairly depressed myself at the moment and I'm refusing to call my psychiatrist let alone even consider taking anti depressants.

I just wanted to say that the world is a different place when you are not depressed.

Wondering if all the work I've done to network and build relationships will ever pay off.

I'm glad my baby sister had a good relationship with him,
but that makes me wonder if I somehow failed to make the connection
or if it really was him?

I tried for a few more years to have a relationship with my brother,
but he seems to connect with his wife's family better than his own.
I let go of the pain and the need, let go of the dream that wasn't happening.

You've also let go of a dream that wasn't ever real.
I had a ridiculous expectation that they might just stop telling lies and portraying me as the enemy and flaming me whenever they felt like it. But I was wrong. I can't change this I can only go no contact. And FFS seriously what sort of people flame someone for protecting their children from a paedophile. You know you're dealing with narcissists when you feel like you're screaming blue murder and they still insist that you are the one in the wrong.

One sister is an outright bully. The other has spent her life trying to recruit me against the bully only to throw me under the bus time and time again. And since I blocked them they sent in my niece's fiancee to take the pot shots for them.

They never even wanted to listen to my side but this guy now thinks he's the expert on my family and can tell me how it is.

But I can't change this. All I can do is move on.
