Joining the medicated masses.

October 5th, 2012by kurea

Well it’s official. Went to the GP again today, and after a long talk with a very nice doctor (making a point of saying he was very nice because i’ve had some crappy doctors in the past) i’ve now been given a prescription for anti-depressants. I’m both happy and sad about this. Happy because finally, maybe, i might get some control over how i feel and sad because it’s actually taken medication to get this sorted out. Medication was kind of the option i was saving for last. In the UK medication isn’t usually the first option they jump to, but he knows the councelling …

Finally out of the darkness

October 5th, 2012by User425

After being depressed for a long time I think its finally time to say I’m out of the black hole. There’s many things I credit to this;

The NFL: What can I say no matter how shit your life is you can still watch Sunday night football! There is also Monday and Thursday nights games to help us survive the crawl to Sunday night. Its something that is always worth holding on for, only one of those losers wimps who make fun of sports people cause they make them feel insecure could hate the NFL its the greatest sport around and is number 1 in America …

Ray Lewis inspirational speach

October 4th, 2012by User425

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/29/ray-lewis-stanford-speech-nit-semifinals_n_1387639.html

We’ve all seen it. Ray Lewis has been doing this for 16 years. Lewis, widely known as one of the greatest NFL linebackers of all time, is also one of the most inspiring athletes to hear speak before any game whether it’s a big one or not.

The Stanford basketball team got a taste of what the Baltimore Ravens have experienced over the last decade and change before Tuesday’s NIT semifinal game against UMass. Before the Cardinal took the court, the former Super Bowl MVP spoke to the team in the locker room and delivered another incredibly inspiring speech.

Almost sober?

October 4th, 2012by jordy

I haven’t posted in a little while. That’s because Life has certainly got a little hectic for me this past month;
Three of my friends, whom knew I was suicidal, told my headteacher, who then pulled me out of lessons and decided
to get me another therapist, and she also gave me a card that will get me out of any lessons if I get upset/overwhelmed.

I’ve started exercising, push ups, lunges, jogging. Drinking more water and less junk, I’ve attempted to sleep more but
my insomnia is proving difficult to push at the moment. The friend that mocked me for being a depressed selfharmer
is not speaking to me and …

Im Here To Talk To….

October 4th, 2012by SaiyanPride19

Hey Everyone,

I know life is really hard at this time with many of you, therefore I need you guys to talk to me and let me know what hurting you … There is so much potential in each and everyone of you.

I ask you this..

October 1st, 2012by RogueShadow1281

If I were to get diagnosed with all the things wrong with me at a psychologist person. Would I still qualify for the army?

I want to die, it seems like a viable option. You can tell me everything will get better but since i was 12 or so things did not get better. I am now 17 trying to hold out, but it gets harder and harder every day. You can tell me something witty now that will stick in my head for the night, but tomorrow I will go through the same phase, thats what life has gotten to. Try as I might, this …

The misadventures of Nate…

September 30th, 2012by RogueShadow1281

He walked, rather swiftly, quiet as a mouse, across dark alleyways, through long, narrow tunnles, and past as few people as possible. As he walked, he kept a disguise in case he was discovered by the ones he hid from. These people he hid from wielded hidden knives and loved to sneak behind you and… Surprise!

He opened the front door to his house to find friends and family springing out of their hiding places in a frenzy, as if a lions pride were lunging at their prey to quickly subdue them. He stood there, wide-eyed, until the realization that many people would watch him intently …

I survived

September 27th, 2012by Leah_Michelle_

Hey Ya’ll, my name is Leah and I want to share with you my suicide story. I just want to go ahead and start off with the fact that I love you, and I am praying for you every single day.
So, where to begin…
Ever since I can remember I have been suicidal. I have had these thoughts for as long as I can remember. I knew it was not the right way to think, that children were supposed to be happy, and the fact that I was not made me feel as if I was doing something wrong. I had trouble coping with anything and …

Is this what i’m here for?

September 26th, 2012by ravenstorm

I guess this is what i’m here for…Just to be someone’s punching bag…When something doesn’t go right,it’s always my fault…I guess I can accept that…..All I am good for is sex and that is about it…All of my friends are committing suicide and I feel like it is my fault.Well it is my fault…I guess the sooner I accept that, the better off I will be…If only someone in this world were here to love me….Love me like the father I never had….

I’m Just Sayin’…..

September 25th, 2012by indierockkgirl

That a lot of you on here are absolutely amazing and talented people. I find it extremely strange that all of you have knack for stylistic writing. Have you seen how beautiful you write? The way you describe your shattered hopes and your distant dreams. It is so heartbreaking the way you guys describe it in an eerie yet beautiful poetic way. I think that you merely writing about how horrible and hard life has been is something that should help you persevere, as that is how I am beginning to feel. When you guys write on here, I can feel your pain, and it …

Life’s abuse

September 24th, 2012by jordy

I’ve read so many of the stories on here, and I feel that I should write mine, too. Although it isn’t as bad as others, it got me where I am.

 

Two years ago, my friend confessed to cutting herself. I was devastated, and all I wanted was to be there for her. I didn’t want her to do it anymore, I wanted her to be okay. So I stayed up late for her, and I was her personal therapist for a while. This was when i was 12 years old.

My mum fell pregnant and I cried for the whole weekend. I was already neglected and …

Stepping Away From The Edge

September 22nd, 2012by Fire_Bad

So I went onto Google today, and not for the first time this year typed in the word “heartbreak”. My boyfriend and I broke up on the 29th of October, 2011. So it’s been almost  a year. We’d been going out for 6 years.

Insert here a movie montage of every rom-com cliche – the kisses, the hugs, the tickles, the laughter, the constant “I love you”s in a variety of tones and funny voices. It was gorgeous and silly and life seemed light.

When it ended, it’s an understatement to say that I was stunned. I never saw it coming. In August he started acting weird. By …

I want to be ………?

September 21st, 2012by Unique

What do you want?

Life can be very difficult, I know how bad it can get, The pain of losing someone is second to none. If you know that pain then i am truly sorry for you. How about that I’m starting to tear up in a public internet cafe in Delhi, and i already kind of stick out!!

Things that have helped me, I mediated three times a day, it is an amazing stress release and it helps me loads, I try to surround myself in friends and new people. Do not hide away, sometimes you need to be alone, but do not linger, loneliness breads depression …

Failure, The Constant In My Life

September 20th, 2012by help wanted

Lights off. Ears plugged. Doors locked.  Notes placed. Water running. Blade cutting. Perfect. All according to plan.

Lights fading. Consciousness slipping. Room spinning. Parents sleeping. Blood pouring. Finally. Time to go.

No more. The End. Black. Infinite black. Peace. Calm. Eternity.

Then noise. Faint. Distant. A hum. A buzz. Audible only because it it the only sound in the beautiful void.

The hum won’t stop. Won’t go away. Won’t leave me alone. I have to find out what it is. What is it anyway!? Look around. Just black.

Wait, I didn’t look around. I couldn’t. There is only black. Maybe if I open my eyes. Then I could find the source …
