    Hello All:

    I'm new to the site so please forgive me if any of these questions have been asked or if this post is too long.

    I've attempted suicide 4 times in my life. I wont get into details due to being unsure of where I can and cannot post my story but my last attempt landed me in the "behavioral health" wing for a few weeks. While a patient I was diagnosed with a few things: PTSD, anxiety, depression, etc. (To be generic) and given medication which I have been taking since then. I have spent countless sessions and large amounts of money trying to figure out what/why I feel the way I feel and think the way I think, yet the only conclusion I have come to is that I am just messed up. . .Until I googled this site.

    I would love to discuss with fellow men and women who are struggling with the same issues I have instead of another doctor switching my medications and sending me on my way.

    Can anyone help? Am I in the right place?

    Hi, i think you're in the right place. I have the same problem. Even though my antidepressant does work, I still wonder what the hell caused the depression, and stuff like that. Like even though I'm feeling better, I still don't feel cured (for a lack of a better term).

    How long have you been struggling with suicide/depression?

    Hi :)

    I know how you feel. I've got PTSD, though my regular therapist refuses to see it. I have Anxiety, Major Depression and Social Aniety Disorder. I've been hospitalized twice this year for suicide attempts, so I think I can relate to how you feel. Feel free to pm me if you want to talk, I'm not able to get online all that often though.
