Over the past year I have had spells of depression and have attempted suicide twice. I have been to see various shrinks but none of them have been able to do any ting to help me. I have serious trust issues because everyone I have ever trusted has let me down. I don't know what to do, please help!

I'm sorry to hear that you have managed to see several shrinks without being helped. Mabe, based on your own previous bad experiences of being let down by people important to you within your own life, you found it hard to trust the shrink and allow them to be truly helpful to you ? I'd recommend seeking out a good local CBT counsellor, to work on these trust issues, first, and then the depression.
