    Hi everyone,

    Am glad that I found this forum and like-minded people who are struggling too, although I'm not glad to have this depression/suicidal thoughts happen to myself or anyone else here.
    In the depths of this depression, it's hard for me to articulate thoughts and especially to put them in words but I'll try.
    For many years I've had depression(treated sometimes successfully, others times not). Sometimes it becomes so severe that awful thoughts of ending it start rolling around in my head, but really I just want the mental pain to go away and I'm fighting it at the moment.
    Next week I'll be seeing my doctor for hopefully an increase in meds, because it's hard to function or even work when all you want to do is end things.
    Anyway, am glad to hopefully meet/chat with others here.

    Hi TrulyBlue, welcome to you. Hopefully things will start to get better for you once you see your doctor. If you need someone to talk to, you can talk to me.

    Thanks so much, Witty :) I've a doctor's appointment next Thursday and hopefully this awful depression will start to get under control. It's great to have someone to talk with as well and I hope to catch you online soon :)

    That's really good news and hopefully things will get better soon. I'll be going to bed shortly but you can message me anytime you want. :)

    No, I'm doing pretty badly...but don't worry about me. I'm sure I'll be fine. How are you doing?
