    Until it's time to go. Just feels like biding my time.

    Hugs. Thanks. Don't have the energy to fight. And wouldn't know what for anymore.

    What about other people in your life? Think about little everyday things that matter.

    Hey Mox. Thanks for the words. I'm not the best with words or being able to express. It's just an accumulation of life failures. I've never really succeeded at anything. I didnt have one traumatic event I've just always felt misery. I never thought I'd live to be a grown man and I feel lost. My anxiety and depression, over thinking has crippled a lot of efforts.

    Let's be honest for a second, you found us because you googled suicide or something and stumbled across us. (Like I did) If you do not feel safe then please go the nearest ER and get the help you need. There's no shame in getting help.

    Hate to hear you feel that way. Have you thought about getting some professional help? I would recommend you see a psychiatrist and they can give you some medication to help you deal with anxiety and depression. Have you thought about seeing a counselor? if you are considering suicide then seeing a counselor is a good idea.

    Don't hesitate to reach out to any of us for help.

    Take Care

    I like your user name. Swimtothemoon.

    When I envision sleeping its floating in water just drifting no lapping.

    I do feel I want to lie down and go to sleep forever but sometimes getting a break from your stressors in life might help you recharge if you felt this way for a long time?

    Hiya, I am sorry you're feeling so depressed and anxious, no one should have to go through all of that. May I ask what age did it start at and did you get treatment straight away or waited? I hope things get better for you! You are important and please never ever give up on yourself, look how far you have come. You didn't get this far for no reason! :)

    Wow, I so relate. I haven't had a particularly traumatic event. Just never succeed at anything. Except eating myself to the point of destroying my digestive system. In pain a lot and STILL can't stop eating. Just had fought depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts since high school. I am 64 now. And go to bed most nights hoping not to wake up. But I do. And start the same old crap all over again. There have been a few moments of pleasure and joy. But not enough. And over thinking. Damn. Sometimes I wish I hadn't been born with a brain. Anyway, I do understand. Sending hugs your way.
