I don’t know who is going to read this

May 27th, 2008by terynbaugh

Hi I just have been feeling the need to share my story with someone and this seems the place to do. I am 25 years old I have two children and a year ago I tried to kill myself. It is something that has become an everyday question as to was it really that bad that I needed to end my own life. Well at the time it was but now I realize that it would have stop my pain but only increased the pain of my family. I understand that everyone is different, but from first hand experience I am …

I wish i was dead!!!

May 27th, 2008by malisala

Hello i am 21 years old and a survivor of rape. I was raped over a period of 4 years. Life has not been the same for me since. I started self-harming when i was 13 two years after the rapes started. It quickly became an obsession for me and i am now addicted to it. It is the only thing that will take the pain away for me. I really feel now that my need to die is greater than my need to live. It is all i think about he has won and i have lost. I have tried to be strong but …

limits

May 25th, 2008by Georgia

everyone has limits. I’ve spent most of the past ten years close to mine. I’ve reached them a few times too. I’m sick of being the one who helps everyone else be happy, get things fixed and such. I get the message though. Someone out there has decided things shouldn’t go right for me, I shouldn’t be happy. I’ve had enough of being miserable, putting on a brave face and being there for everyone else.

I have HIV, i’m the most careful person iknow when it comes to condoms, and i still managed to get infected. most of my …

A Happy ending

May 21st, 2008by ncemtchick

I have suffered from depression all my life. It wasn’t until age 34 that i was finally diagnosed with Bipolar II. I first tried to kill myself when i was 20 yo. Then I went into a drunken and medicated rage when i was 34. I attempted suicide 5 times during a 2 year period. Fortunately my life has turned around and I love life now. I haven’t done this by myself. I have a wonderful psychiatrist that has literally saved my life. I also have a therapist that has saved me from myself. I just wanted to share this and hope it can …

endless misery

May 18th, 2008by empty-and-dead

my experience is that there is no-one who will really help: I am bright and educated (IQ of around 140) and have all the insights anyone could want, need or imagine (bright, workaholic, alcoholic bipolar father, hysterical, self-martyring self-obsessive Aspergers syndrome mother, lots of domestic violence and punishment for not being’ what they wanted’ just for a start) …I fully understand the whys and wherefores of my depression and suicidal feelings…but understanding it changes absolutely nothing. The levels of my insight and self-awareness are such that when I have talked to the various counsellors, cognitive behavioural therapists, psychotherapists, clinical psychologists and well meaning …

Seeking help takes courage.

May 18th, 2008by thankful

I don’t know who will read this.

In part I’d like to thank the people\persons responsible for this site. I found you when I needed you the most. Glad you took the time to be here for me.

October 30, 2006 almost became the last day of my life. I was at a fork in the road of life. On one side was death by my own hand, on the other, the unknown. Would seeking help cost me my job, my career, my house, everything I’d worked so hard to achieve? Although not much …

I’m still here, and fighting for myself

May 16th, 2008by kitwit

Hi

Four years ago, I wanted to end it. But the love of my animals, and the love for my dreams, kept me going. Now I have a friend who is going through a bad time. But I survived through the ugliness of it all. And so damm happy I chose to stay-no matter what!

Fight for your life!

I guess I’m a Suicide Survivor

May 15th, 2008by Brooke

OK so I’m “Brooke” and I am 16 years old, 17 in September. I come from a very wealthy and affluent family and I seem to have it all. Yet deep down inside I am absolutely insane and dark. I’m not afraid to show people this side of me but I know If I were to show people this side of me I would be completely misunderstood and I would rather not have people try to understand me. It’s a natural human characteristic to over analyze situations and ask the question “why.” Sometimes there just isn’t a “why” for things. I would just rather have …

Getting Help is a bad idea

May 14th, 2008by gemblon

Everybody says, “If you think about committing suicide, you should get help.” ::: so i am thinking, if you want help, ya, get help. or walk into a hospital, and ask for some pills so you can get some pills and a 3 day lockdown. but, really, you don’t want to commit suicide. you just want life to change.

a person that really ants to commit suicide, would never, ever, tell anybody. when they are ready, they do it.

if you tell somebody, that you are thinking of suicide, they will never have the same opinion of you …

I can’t write about it.
A problem has grown into a mountain.
I feel hurt and have no one I can share this feeling with.
Why am I here and what is my purpose in life?
I have failed and failed and failed agin.
How can I tell someone what I truly feel,
when the world around me has such a different picture of me.

Once I was called, I felt I made a difference
and now it looks so bleak
I feel abused – I feel used

My Lord, my God
I need you more than life itself
you are all I need – you are my sustainer
even in my darkest hour I know you …

witness

May 14th, 2008by Survivor

Today happens to be my 34th birthday. I have been a survivor of debilitating depression since I was 19. I have forgotten the person I was. After 14 years of severe depression and all of the questions all of the odd looks all of the hopelessness and pain. All of those wasted years and potential. I am starting to feel better. Dr.s seemed to always give me a drug of limited effect in an insufficient dose and left me out to pasture. Higher doses of prescription drugs are what is helping me.
How the heck do I know how normal I should feel now after …

What is Life?

May 13th, 2008by miss-understood13

Life . . . What is it?

Your born kicking and screaming into a world that might not always accept you.

Icolation confinds me to my own persoanal buble.

What is the purpose of life?

Does anyone truly know?

What are you supposed to do with the time given to you?

What if the time isnt enough?

Its a constant ticking at the back of my mind.

You could die today… One second walking down the street, next? Hit by a car, lying bloody on the side walk. People running and crying, friends you never had saying, “She was so young…”

____________________________

Those are my constant thoughts.

I dont know if anyone else shares …

How much of a bother…

May 11th, 2008by Reeshi

does someone have to be before the world would be better off with out them?

I have five friends. I love them; I would do anything I could to make them happy. I feel this isn’t enough, however. My flawed personality and value isn’t worthy of these people – and they’re aware of it. They have to be. That’s how I feel, anyways.
After all, these are all great people. My friends are kind, funny, smart…

I am insecure, with my friends – I believe that because I am so flawed, I will eventually screw everything up, they will leave and never talk to me again. When they …

So Very Tired

May 10th, 2008by TiredOne

I’m not planning anything right now, just longing for rest and peace from this weary old life. I’m worn out–mentally, physically, emotionally. My brain and endocrine system are broken down, and it’s hard as hell to get any help. And it’s lonely because so few people know what it’s like to be so deeply exhausted and weary.

On my best days, I can put on a smile and can almost care about what’s going on around me. On those days, when I get out around people, I look and act pretty normal. That makes it all the harder for people to understand how little life …
