    I'm tired of this

    I have been depressed since middle school.  I am 32.  I've given up.  I think about suicide every day, the various, in depth, very graphic ways to kill myself.  No, I won't call 911 and will lie through my teeth to avoid ever returning to a shitty psych ward or hospital again, ever.  I've been there too many times and I won't go back.  I have been on lithium, lamital, abilify, celexa,...

    In patient treatment

    I've been having major depression for the last four months now that is getting progressively worse. I rarely make it to work these days and I fear I will be fired soon if I don't change soon. I haven't responded to therapy or medication. Suicide is constantly on my mind and I have several different methods in mind. I'm in my thirties and extremely tired of the anxiety/depression battles. I've...

    I'm new to this website and group. I suffer with depression and still have growing pains. I have discovered I can't go without medication or I get paranoid and my anxiety goes through the roof. Has anyone experienced this? The hardest part for me is I have no one to really talk to about this or I don't want to burden the ones I have admitted to what I'm going through. Lately I have had a hard...

    When it comes to my husband I feel like I never do anything right. I'm going insane and just dont know what to do. I wish I could just go out and blow off some steam. I just went out shopping for his birthday, I left most the things in my car but brought a couple things in. I walk in the door and hes like what did you buy and start going through bags. He NEVER does that. So I got upset because I...

    Trying to find reason

    I'm kind of lost right now. I don't want to die but at the same time I don't want to keep living feeling the pain everyday. I think about suicide a lot and I always end up talking myself out of it I'm scared because I don't know how many times I'll be able to talk myself out. I just don't see the point in living. Sometimes I don't even think I have depression sometimes I just wonder if I have a...

    Depression triggered after surgery....

    I posted in the injuries group but there is not much going on there. I have had bad depression and anxiety my whole life and have dealt with it with exercise (and medication). Now I have torn my ACL and am 3 weeks post op and the depression is severe. My depression has always gotten horrible with pain but I think the complete inability to do much of anything has just sent me over the edge. I am...

    Never been this bad

    i have told two people I don't see the point in living anymore and they just  ignored it. I feel so alone. I can't seem to open up to people and tell them how bad it is and how much I think about ending my life because I feel like I'll let people down. I have to talk myself out of killing myself almost daily. At this point but son is the only reason I don't slit my wrist which oddly makes me...

    Relapsing... and alone..

    2
    I think I am starting to relapse, AGAIN. The anxiety is finally getting to me again, triggering the stupid depression. I have started this pattern of going into remission for a couple weeks then relapsing for a couple weeks... today I just broke down; all the discouraging parts of my world all overwhelmed me at once and I once again found myself wondering, why am I even bothering to try to go to...

    How long has it been?

    Wow! It's been forever since I've been on here. I've kind of forgotten how everything works. Anyways, I'm in a couple of depression/anxiety groups on fb and a lot of ppl were suggesting CBD oil. So I did some research and ended up ording some online and I've started using a couple drops every night for the past 3 or 4 nights just to start off and see how it would effect me. It seems to help with...

    I want to be Living with Depression

    Since I will lose each time I battle it. I can't fight it. How can one fight emptiness? The pain is real. The pain will always be there. Accepting that I will never be someone without childhood trauma. I will never be someone without painful memories. I will never be someone without triggers that make me gasp with a sharp twinge in my chest. There will always be a black dot in my heart. I have to...
