    so i've never joined anything like this before but today was the worst it's ever been and i figured i needed to do something. i've been dealing with depression among other things since i was in the 4th grade. i'm supposed to be taking meds for this but i don't. as much as i hate feeling numb and hopeless and so depressed that i want to die, i don't want to let those feelings go either. they're familiar. the first time i thought about killing myself i was 12. it's crossed my mind since then (i'm 24 now) but the thoughts have become more frequent and much more intense lately. i feel like such a brat because i have so many things in my life that should make me happy and want to live but instead i have to struggle to keep myself from ending it all on a daily basis. i was in therapy for a few years but i quit. financially it's not really an option to go back right now and i never actually talked about these feelings with my therapist anyway. i'm not really sure what else to write here, so i guess that means i'm done...
