A recent comment on one of my posts was questioning my reasons for feeling suicidal, saying things along the lines of “you have a loving family and many would kill to have that,” and just plain old “I don’t understand.” That person meant well, but that really did make me feel insignificant. Alright sure, I do have parents and family that care about my wellbeing, and many people on here don’t have that, but we still have the same feelings of wanting to end our lives at times. That’s what we come on here to talk about. We don’t come on here to compete over whose problems matter more (at least I hope we don’t). Truth is, I do suffer from mental problems based on how past and current events have shaped me. I have lost a lot in too short a time. I wrote about it in an earlier post. That was a truly traumatic time for me, and I have and never will be the same person again because of that. I struggle with feeling lonely, isolated because of my sexuality and other interests, and fitting in. I am on meds but they never last for long, and I ultimately end up having my dosage raised. I do feel for many on here, because I can relate to their thoughts. So, all I’m saying is that, even if you don’t think my problems are as bad as those of others on here, you can still at least offer up some advice and let me know that you care to some extent. Please?
