Hey everyone! I'm 21 y/o college grad/hopeful grad student... formally diagnosed with clinical depression since 2007, have battled fluctuating bouts of suicidality for years. Hoping to see some sunshine soon. It seems as though I can't confide in hardly anyone about these issues I face. 95% of my friends and family cannot understand how someone can want to end their own life, are uncomfortable hearing/talking about it, and basically make me feel ashamed for sharing my feelings. As a result, I'm reluctant to do so when I'm in a crisis. So I end up fighting this battle alone. I think it's really wonderful that a site like this is around.
