    I'm 24 years old. I live my parents, the government has put me on disability (full, SSI & SSDI) for my severe depression with psychotic features. I refer to myself as a 'unipolar' - never have mania, just deep deep pain and sadness for most of my life. My counselor acknowledges that my life has been really awful - the worst he's ever seen. My step father just lost his job, we might have to sell the house. I am feeling guilty because I want to die, but it would stop my payments to them - making the house foreclosed.

    My biological father disowned me - then he got luekemia and died. Had a lot of abuse as a kid (physical, emotional, mental, sexual, etc.) from many different sources.

    My councelor wants me to call him before I kill myself - but that guilt won't stop me - my resolve is very hardened. I've been putting off my suicide - but I've been recieving messages that tell me the end is nigh.

    I've tried several different ways to die - it's a lot harder than it seems. So I did my research and found cutting is only 1% of completed suicide, but I have a method available that is 33% of successful suicides. I've spent 10% of my life in psych wards (2.5 years total).

    I'm never going to be famous or remembered - just another drop of water in the ocean.

    I keep listening to Michael Andrews Mad World, and Cash's Hurt - it's giving me some comfort. I'm tired and fading away

    Thanks Stranger One - I'm living on a day by day basis right now. Been crying, which I haven't done in years. Ditto on the abuse, except I was 7. Feel like I'm both young and old, hard to explain. Been between crying and deep sadness to mechanical coldness and numbness. Still feel strongly about stabbing myself, or ingesting poison - but, again, taking it on a day by day basis. Thanks.

    Hi galalleni,

    Tried the stabbing/ingestion last week - painful and shitty. Don't try it. :unsure: Life can be really hard with lifelong chronic malaise - I don't know much about beating it, but I do know that you don't always have to feel as low as you do. Please keep fighting it day by day.

    I'm sort of a hardened person, having grown up in an area where I got robbed at gunpoint, chained to a wall by unlawful police officers, let's see, what else. I mean the list of horrible things that have happened to me in my life is long I guess...... In a way, all the violence made me stronger though. Now, if someone would confront me, I actually get pumped up and would enjoy fighting someone twice my size even. Is this what anyone should do? Of course not... But I'm just trying to illustrate a point but in fact I'm not sure what the point is... heheh :laugh:

    But I digress.. Oh, I remember my point. It was that I'm probably more hardened that 99% of people but lately, even I myself have wanted to cry almost everyday. I guess for me, it's because I haven't done the things I want and also I'm lonely and am hopelessly disfunctional when it comes to relationships. So you're definitely not alone being sad.

    Have you ever tried learning a martial art and just totally kicking someone's a**? I mean, in the right place, safe professional... not like... commiting a crime. lol. Seriously though... Maybe something like that would help you "snap out of it." I'm sure there's something that can. I think those are called "awakening moments" where you just all of a sudden snap out of your frame of mind.

    I also like zen and stuff a lot now... relaxation music and stuff. I like The Secret Power Within by Chuck Norris. It's a great book for getting more peace and happiness.
