    Can't handle it anymore!

Ive come to terms with the fact that I'm emotionally unstable and it's been this way since I was 15, I'm 42 now. I've had enough. No lectures please just help me die in a peaceful manner since there's no emotional peace in my life

    Hi, I'd like to respectfully request that everyone who does a 'I want to kill myself how shall i do it' type thread be given a 1 month ban to think about what they've done. this isn't a pro-ana type website where all the deranged people come to talk about ways to self-harm and get away with it. This site isn't here for creeps to get their kicks.

    Anger

    I got in a fit of slight rage today, for the dumbest reason. My friend wanted me to bring his paint to his house from mine, and he wouldn't stop asking so I got super irritable and pretty much lost my sh*t because I just didn't feel like going anywhere. I dropped them off and barely said a word to him, slammed some doors, and left crying. I'm so full of regret right now. I apologized to him but...
  • I was encouraged by the other thread about worst things to say, that I hoped we could get some good participation in this one as well. Those of us who struggle with depression, what are some things you would want to hear from a friend or loved one?For me it would be hearing things like "I know you're not feeling your best but I'm going to be here for you through this", "I know how hard it can be...
