I am a 40 year old female happily married for 13 years, living in a nice home. Everything I dreamed of when I was a little girl, but depression has invited itself to my life. I have done all the usual things to try and uninvite depression, but as with most unwanted guest it doesn’t seem to get the hints. I have hit rock bottom and beyond, I still sit in a dark and cold place with no light, but I keep thinking of the things I will miss if I give into my unwelcome guest. If you are in a dark and cold place with no light and only depression as your companion, do something, call someone, think of the things that you have enjoyed in your life and what you will miss out on if you let depression win. Please remember it is a disease and it is treatable. Tonight I almost let depression win, but in desperation I got on the internet and put in a simple search of suicide. I found the most wonderful site I could find and I share it with you now, it is http://www.metanoia.org/suicide/ and has some great links too. Good luck and I hope your pain ends soon.
