    Hey you guys!
    I have been feeling extremely depressed the last four years. I have had several episodes of major depression and many years of dysthymia. There are still some things I want to do, but I don't want to grow very old. I hope my parents will be dead by then or very old. So do I have a moral obligation to live, e.g. for my brother? By then I will have been depressed for many, many years, and the only reason I am doing all of this is for my parents! So am I obliged? I really want to leave!
    Thanks!

    I know when things are bleak we look at it as a "moral obligation" and even use that as an a way to keep pushing through. At the end, non of us really want to leave, we just want to be out of pain. It's a sign your light isn't all the way out. Keep up the battle and protect the light *hugs*
