Last night I came to realize that the people I thought were my friends really aren't. They don't care about me, and I def. don't think they even want me around. This can't be mentally healthy on my part. I've been depressed for a long time now, and I could never find anything to help, except my 'friends'. They were my solid ground, I guess you could say. I don't know what I should do. Should I drop those friends, and leave myself with nothing, or should I just realize where I stand with them and deal with they're ignorance?
I've lived my entire life here, and I seem to be caught in a rut. The same day over and over as it were. I'm starting to notice very odd personality traits in myself, and I know they aren't good. I feel like I need to get out, and get a complete change of surroundings.
I don't know why I put this up here, I guess I'm looking for some support and understanding, something I can't get from friends or family.

You wouldn't be left with nothing, you'd be left with the satisfaction that you're stronger/smarter/more capable than them and you're not sticking yourself in a rut forever. Or relying on low-quality people for support. Strengthen and empower yourself for the sake of being happy and confident. Don't rely on other people to do this for you, because they'll likely fail.
I've had to drop drug friends before, because that's all they were: drug friends. You need to surround yourself with people that make you happy, not people that bring you down. Every day seems the same because it's disgusting winter, don't dwell on too much. Find something that you enjoy to occupy your mind. hell, workout so when the weather's nicer you'll be in better shape and maybe even feel better about yourself. There's all kinds of things you can do to keep your mind occupied.
yeah, happened with me too.. a long time ago- i started early... I say drop them if they're not really friends then.. sure, you may be alot lonelier alot of the time, but when you find a real friend, then it gets much much better. Sadly, it is rather hard to find a good friend you can totally relate with.. for me anyway.
the way i see it, you can take on the harder, more rewarding option of dropping them, or just keeping them and flopping around
Here's a little buddhist quote that i like to think about when lack of friends gets me down:
If the traveler can find A virtuous and wise companion Let him go with him joyfully And overcome the dangers of the way.
If the traveler cannot find Master or friend to go with him, Let him travel on alone Rather than with a fool for company.
