No one understands how depressed I feel. I can't get pregnant. Should I just give up?

In brief: I am sorry

I am sorry you have been unsuccessful.
Do you have a close friend, spouse or counselor with whom you can speak? No one can understand how depressed you feel, but there can be those who can empathize and provide support. I truly encourage you to speak with someone about your feelings on the matter. Consult with an ob/gyn / fertility specialist about your difficulty getting pregnant.

In brief: Seek good help

Infertility and feelings of depression go together incredibly often.
There are specific limitations that sometimes lead people to give up, but if you haven't had a responsible thorough evaluation by a specialist, and had at least one good session with a fertility counselor you should seriously consider doing so before calling it quits.
