    I guess I don't need to explain why I'm here - I guess everybody's here for roughly the same reasons - but I'll give a brief rundown. For numerous reasons, I've been suffering from severe chronic depression for probably about 9 years now. I wasn't diagnosed until a few years ago, but I've felt roughly this way since I was 16, and it's only gotten worse over time, really. I've been through medication, therapy, and a psych ward, and nothing has really helped. I've always been suicidal, on-and-off, and, well, I guess this is a time when it's been more severe. I've always been too much of a coward to actually go through with it, but I'm becoming less afraid these days, and, ironically, being less scared makes me more scared, in other ways. So I'm just trying everything I can. I happened upon this forum while looking up resources for suicide/depression.

    Anyways, thanks for reading. I look forward to talking with you.

    Hello Jaden (lovely name by the way) I am glad you joined. We are the same age if you are 25 and I read that correctly lol. I can definitely see how being less scared of committing the act can actually make you feel more vulnerable and scared, it's a strange way to put it but it is true. I hope you can get the support you need from this lovely caring community, best of luck to you Jaden. :hug:
