7 years after attempting suicide (twice, the 2nd time being more deadly), I made a video on Youtube talking through it all. I've decided to include a piece of it here: If you've decided to end your life, you are in grave danger. Suicide survivors will know what I mean by that. What you need to do: GET YOUR ASS to the doctor's, literally right now, and say you need help because you've been feeling suicidal. They will either prescribe you some mood lifters (+/- therapy), or will refer you to the nearest person that can. Like it or not, that's the only way to escape everything. Now, if you're already diagnosed with depression (or even Bipolar Disorder or Schizophrenia), and your medicine ISN'T working, there are MANY alternatives that can work. If it's that severe at the moment, you can always research it more on Wikipedia. Either way, you still need to get to the doctor's, and discuss with them why it isn't working, and what needs to be done. I rattle on a lot about medicine. Know why? Because clinical depression is a chemical disorder, like diabetes, or cancer. It's usually a deep rooted thing. So just talking about it ain't gonna do shit in the long run. For those who still think suicide is an 'easier' way out, I'll put it this way: It's a lot easier to fix a wrecked mind than a wrecked body.
