    Hello I'm new to the forum and just wanted to know how long people have felt suicidal?

    I've felt this way for just over 3 years now and I want to know can people recover from it?
    I've tried many suicide attempts all which have failed unfortunately and have tried various forms of counciling and medication but nothing helps.

    I'm desperate and now don't know what else to do

    Hi Jonathon and welcome to the site.

    I have felt suicidal since I was twelve, and I'm now 24. I've been in counselling for a year, but have a long way to go and to be completely honest I don't believe things will ever change for me. But then, I'm still here, so I guess there's some hope.

    However, my older sister suffered with depression for many years and had several suicide attempts, but now she is relatively happy and certainly no longer suicidal. I believe that for her it was the combination of the right medication along with support from her husband, and the final clincher - her reason to live, which is her daughter. I suppose we all just need to find our own personal reason to live.

    For about six years now. Things really started going down at age 11, I'm 17 now. Unfortunately my life before that wasn't exactly bunnies and rainbows either. I seemed to have been born a melancholy child with smothering overprotective parents.

    Up until this year I only had suicidal thoughts briefly and during stressful time.

    This year I've been covered in depression, OCD, anxiety problems, and suicide ideation.

    I just want the pain to end now.

    I'm trying hard to just enjoy the meds I have and maybe I'll start feeling better.

    I've probably been depressed since I was 14 or so, can't really say since I don't remember too well.
    Probably started having suicidal thoughts a year or so after that.
    Then severe urges to end my life around 18, but I always found some stupid reason to hang in there.
    I'm now 20, and not much has changed, but I'm fighting the feelings best I can.

    It hasn't really been at the point of suicidal ideation until maybe a year or so ago.
    Things probly started to slide down hill at a slow rate at the end of grade 7. Then it accelerated the following year when I went to highschool. Nearly 3 years in and 2 nearly attempted suicides(I never got around to the point of doing it) later it has gotten a shitload worse. I don't think I'll do to good in the remaining 2 years, wouldn't be surprised if I actually attempt within the next 8 months.

    What's troubling you then? In order to solve a problem you first have to know what the problem is.
