I’m an 18 y/o girl from England suffering from depression, I think its mild/normal but to me it feels severe as I’m sure it does to everyone. I’m on anti-depressants and I thought they were helping but today I feel worse than I have in so long, I’ve been searching suicide and came across this site. I’m also wondering whether to get off the pills because I don’t want to rely on them, but counselling hasn’t helped either.
I’m bored of my life, I feel like I will fail my a levels this June and if I don’t get into uni I don’t know what I’m going to do. The only person who really helps is my ex-boyfriend who I still talk to and he doesn’t even know, but just being with him helps me.
Is anyone else going through the same because I feel so alone.
well you are in a forum about suicide so you may stumble upon sad individuals. But if you need someone ( and if you are not a fake) contact me at email@example.com
You are never alone. Even in the darkest of times, there is always someone to talk to.
I live in the U.S.A. and would be happy to talk with you. I understand how you feel I am a 31 year old Combat Veteran I tend to stay at home and never leave… I have attempted and ended up much worse then before the attempt… :/
I’m glad you found this website in your searches. First of all, I’m 20 from England so I’m hoping I can help relate.
You’re not alone with regards to your thoughts of university, the pressure puts a huge strain on yourself and you’d be surprised the amount of young adults medicated with antidepressants/anxiety pills. It’s completely normal to freak out about the future and consequences, all you can do is try your hardest.
I don’t recommend coming off medication, how long have you been taking it for?
I sympathise with regards to the counselling, I didn’t find it helped either. Perhaps a visit back to your gp may work in your favour so you can explore more options.
I’ve only been on it for 2 months so not long, but I just don’t know whether taking pills is what I want any more
I’m 26 from England a lot of people seem to be going though a depressive stage right now I no I am u new here if so welcome
I have read that a common side effect of alot of anti depressants is in fact depression, tho as someone who never reached out for profesional help i cant comment properly on that.
Hay procel you’ve never been on anti depressants ? I must say I do think they make me feel more depressed so what’s the logic in taking them
i was going to put myself on them once but online suppliers arent that reliable, and theres the whole not mixing with alcohol :p in the end i found something better than anti depressants, this place 🙂 The logic is that they might help severe cases long enough for counciling or whatever to help, but now a days its just easier to put everyone on them and hope for the best.
Yeah that is what happens bloody bastards like to throwing pill at people hoping for the best the biggest drug dealers ever making millions and it’s probably making us worst
that seems to be how the world turns, using our bones as gears and our guts as lube
Yeah sucks pretty much but there seems to be more and more people getting mental illiness it’s rather strange
Hey elles. Welcome to SP. I usually just read and don’t post but you struck a cord with me. First of all, I personally think antidepressants are evil and I couldn’t get my life back together until I stopped taking them. If they help you fine. If they don’t, then stop messing up your poor brain with them. Read An Anatomy of an Epidemic if your curious why and how. I have dealt with depression since I was a child and suicidal ideation since I was a teenager, so I can relate. I just want to say that going to university is not the be all and end all of life. I am the only person in my family to have gone to university and got a white collar job and you know what? My entire family feels sorry for me. They all found their way in life and are happily married with children while me and my fucked up brain remain alone and childless. My point is, you just have to have faith that you will find your way. You don’t have to go to university to have a good life. I’m sorry that you are suffering and I hope you find sone peace.
Something seems so eerily similar about you.
hi.. thank you for sharing and thank you for hanging out with us
I’m new to this website as well
Medications weren’t for me, the side effects where always worst then the sickness they where supposed to cure.
I’ve had many therapy’s and I can say 2 things; not all therapists are created equal and what may be great for somebody may be crap for someone else.
I said that music is the love of my life earlier today in a reply
I have a condition know as asperger’s syndrome and I’m no stranger to lonelyness but in all my years having the condition I realized that even though nobody could relate to what I was thinking I was far from being the only one with difficulties
hope this helped
wow, thank you all so much for the replies, I didn’t expect any let alone this!
