    I was going through this terrible bout of depression.. I picked up a knife and held it to my chest.

    But I put it down because I thought it would be too painful. I still feel guilty, but let down, in a way.

    What would have happened if I had succeeded? Would anyone have cared?

    I'm sure there are people in your life who would care. People you hardly know would have cared. :hug:

    What happened to make you feel so desperate?

    I've done that countless times...didn't really see it as a big deal. you know you probably would never do it and thats a good thing. I dont know if people would have cared, only you know the answer to that.

    I'd have cared. A life lost affects us all! I'm glad you didn't go through w/ it. Despite what you may think everyone here cares. Now that may not be enough but it's a start. :hug:

    I have done the same thing, and willed myself to make that cut...
    It's a really frightening thing to have done, and afterwards it took a few weeks for the shock of it to wear off. Keep talking, keep sharing, and know that we care.
    Many others here have shared similar despairing moments and survived. You can survive, too. I'm glad you posted,
