Just say something, anything. I just want to know that Im not the only one who's feeling this

Hi everyone, I dont really know what to say. I just want to talk, Im planning to end my life but a part of me is saying that I should not. When I was young, I thought depression was just a joke but it's taking over my life now. Why is it so hard to talk about it with you love ones?

It’s hard to talk about it with them because they don’t get it and sometimes look at you as if they’ve seen a ghost! I also think that they worry that it’s contagious, or they’re afraid you will bring them down. I just stick with the basics with folks like mentioned above and move on...😊🌺😊

I haven’t told my family about my mental health either and I think part of it is me being afraid that they won’t believe me or that I’ve somehow let them down for not being strong enough, but those are just lies that depression tell us. If we’re patient and give our family time they’ll eventually understand and support us.

You need to talk to someone if you're feeling suicidal. Samaritans, GP or someone from the mental health? I'll chat to you if you like? Pm me x

YOU MUST NOT TAKE YOUR OWN LIFE. I know you are sad and I am sorry for it, but think of all those people who know you....

I know this will not go over well, but is not really your life to take. It’s your mother’s, father’s, siblings, friends, even people you don’t know who sit next to you on the bus, your coworkers, your boss...everyone who knows you in anyway.

You will be hurting them in ways you cannot imagine right now because of your own pain.

Regardless of how bad you feel or how bad your relationships may be, they WILL BE DEVASTATED if you do this thing.

I KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE.

I am here if you want to talk. Please, please do not do this awful thing!!!

I hope your feelings of desperation have subsided at least a little now that you know you're not alone and people, even strangers, care about you. You have taken the important first step in reaching out to someone, anyone, for help and you made an excellent decision to do that here. Some of us have been to that dark place where you find yourself, others here will be lost for words because not everybody can identify with such a feeling of hopelessness, but we all care and want you to be OK. You will probably find that the same is true of people in your everyday life, that's why it's so important to open up to the right people. We've all been through enough without having to worry about other people's reactions. Your friends and family love you dearly and can't bear to see you so unhappy, they feel powerless to help you. They, like we do, wish there was a magic wand to wave and make everything ok and they just don't know what to do or say. Sometimes a kind stranger can be just what you need to talk about your problems with because they don't know the back story, they don't know what you were like or what you enjoyed doing before you were depressed. All they know about you is what you tell them is relevant in the here and now and they can focus on that. I'm not suggesting you should walk into a bar or take to a soapbox with a loudspeaker in the street, something a bit safer than that. This forum and others like it, call Samaritans, make an appointment with your doctor and/or a therapist that someone you trust has recommended, go to support groups. Whatever is available to you and seems like a safe bet. I'm wishing you all the best for your recovery and I will be thinking of you x

You are 100% not alone. Please dont take your life though because you never know how bright your future is or how much you could regret it.

My boyfriend had a failed suicide attempt 2 years ago and the moment he woke up in the hospital he regretted it. He always thought everyone was against him, that no one cared. It was heartbreaking that a major suicide attempt is what showed him how much he was loved and how much he was needed. He had bottled everything up for so long that one day he just snapped, he now wishes he had talked to all his family and friends sooner.

Please know that as much as it may feel embarrassing, over dramatic, etc. That it is not. Not everyone will understand the situation, but usually the ones who love you will be there for you through this and will help you as much as they can.

If you need someone to talk to please message me. I myself deal with major depression and anxiety first hand, but i have also dealt with my boyfriends and his suicide attempt. I have felt the pain of witnessing a loved ones suicide so maybe I could help you see your loved ones side of things.
