I'm very sympathetic to your situation. Being depressed like that is hard, and I, like others, grasp at almost anything to try to get out of it. You shouldn't feel bad.
That said, I don't know your case well, but there's good evidence that large doses of methamphetamine are very, very bad for your brain--to the point of putting large holes in it, as has been previously mentioned. And that's not even getting to its hyperthermic (i.e. feverish) effects on the rest of your body, even with occasional use. Or the poisonous substances that tend to occur with it in its street form. Simply put, crystal is horrible for you, and in 'recreational' doses (as you're quite clearly taking it), even more so. It's not worth it. Not under any circumstances I can think of. It damages the dopamine nerve terminals in your brain, which will, in the medium and long term, make you even worse.
Best of luck,
