    Does anyone actually want to get better? I love the release of stress and tention when i cut (i dont love actually cutting though) and i cant think of any way i´d be if i wasnt ´depressed´.

    I dont think i want to get better but at the same time i do want to be happy.

    Can anyone relate?

    I've never wanted to stick in one place for long. I get restless. I don't know what is 'recovered' but I'm much better now than this time last year when I was half dead...

    'Bout seven years this way.

    I don't remember how to act. I wouldn't know how to treat a "recuperated" me. I think my being depressed and/or effed up is a character flaw and not a condition. It feels like it.

    If I get rid of the character flaws which expedited the formation of my personality, I must get rid of the personality, so I must get rid of the person....

    waddya mean, do i want to get better? i *am* better!

    okay, just kidding. well, mostly kidding. i still have strong urges to self-harm, but i'm much less suicidal. how did this happen? stopping thinking (just like quicksand, more i t thought, the worse i felt). instead i started doing: meds, therapy, a great community nurse, meditation, walking, relaxation... you name it i tried it. if it worked i did some more. if it made me worse i stopped.

    i am a person with depression, yes, have attempted suicide. but i am so much more. getting well does not challenge my identity....

    Wait what.. youre doing a great community nurse? Hows that going for you, is it a serious relationship or just ´abit on the side´?

    Why would I not want to 'get better'? Of course I want to feel better, I'd rather not be miserable.

    I think i feel like i dont want to get better because i hate change. Ive known depression for about 5 years and its all i can relate with. Most of my time i spend alone becasue people generally anoy me.

    I totally understand where you're coming from. I've been depressed since I was about 12 and I'm now 27. Depression seems normal now. I don't feel like I know how to think any other way. I almost feel like I want to stay this way sometimes.
