My YA paranormal fantasy novels, The Guardian's Playlist and The Devil's Playlist, explore the very real issues of self-hate, hopelessness, suicidal ideation and addiction. Those feelings and compulsions are an illusion our minds create. They convince us things will never get better--that we can't get better. It's not true. The darkness always passes. I know this from personal experience. Hope exists. Ask for help for you or your loved one. Ask again if you need to. And again. You're worth it.
