Well I am joining this forum here today because I need a place where I can talk about my suicidal thoughts without being judged. I’ve struggled with depression for most of my life. I’ve been in therapy for a couple of years and started taking Lexapro about 10 months ago. Those things have helped me but now I am in between therapists and my support system has dwindled. Whenever I had these thoughts in the past I would share them with my therapist or my boyfriend(we have since broken up). I have attempted to talk to my family and friends about these feelings before and there has been mixed reactions. I just hate having to explain everytime that I don’t intend on acting on these thoughts when I have them… Its really hard to explain these things to people when they don’t get it. I’ve gained some insights as to why I have these thoughts through therapy. Part of my way of dealing with these thoughts is by sharing with people. So that’s why I’m here. I’d also like to be supportive of whoever else is going through a rough patch.
