funny, my 1st post a year ago asked the question if anyone has ever recovered from suicidal depression. And here I am a year later and deeper in the shit, even though Ive done everything they tell you to do. Medication: didn’t work. Reaching out for help: didn’t work. Get healthy & exercise: didn’t help. Stop drinking: didn’t help. Fresh air, sunlight, “positive attitude”, listen to music, try writing drawing creating: DIDNT FUCKING HELP.
I’m starting to think all this talk of recovery is the biggest scam since those 1920s cancer tonics. There’s no fucking cure for cancer. Some people just get lucky and it goes into remission while the more aggressive cases are plain screwed.
And ive definitely got an aggressive case of suicide. Why do I keep hoping snake oil will cure me?
I would like to meet 1 person, just 1 person who has been as far down the hole as I have and managed to come out. And stay out. The wisest words I ever heard on the subject were somewhere on this site. Someone said “recovery is easy. It’s staying recovered that’s the problem.”
