    Hi, I'm 22 years old and first started thinking about suicide when I was 11. I've always felt "different" from everyone else and that I'm somehow undeserving of a happy normal life, even though my rational mind tells me this isn't true.

    I think depression runs in my family as my father and grandfather had some serious anger issues and alcoholism to go with it. I never really trusted my dad since he could be okay one minute, but cruel and sadistic another, and I was always worried about setting him off. I haven't talked to him in 3 years, since my parents got divorced. It's been a big weight off my shoulders, not having to worry about him, and I don't miss him at all to be honest. I have a hard time making friends and relating to people, since I don't trust them much. I have a good group of friends now, and i worry about how they would react if I killed myself.

    I still think about killing myself almost every day because I feel like I'll never be happy again and things will only become more complicated and painful for me.

    i'm going to try to be on here at least once a week and most of the time its going to be more than that. i have learned that the thoughts don't just affect you. the thoughts too affect your friends around you in ways that you can't imagine. the thoughts have pushed my friends away from me. they won't answer phones. barely answer texts anymore. i, like everyone else on here, want my life back. i need help too and hope we can help each other.

    Yeah, I've tried two different SSRI's, one of them didn't work out so well and the other had sexual side effects, so I stopped taking it 4 months ago. Now I see the difference it makes, but I was hoping regular exercise would help but so far not so much.

    I've seen a counselor a few times, but they didn't tell me anything I didn't already know and I couldn't waste any more of my money. Maybe talking regularly with people who go through the same things as me will help me more?
