    I'm new here. I've never done something like this before...this was a site that I heard about and thought that I'd at least check it out. No one knows how I've been feeling suicidal lately. How depressed I have been for months. I put on this fake facade and no one notices. Just recently I tried to reach out to my other half, he just pushed me right back into my shell. Months and months all I have really want to do is curl up and wither away. I continuesly try and reach out to him tell him I need his help and all he does is push me away and make myself hate myself even more...

    Hi Layla, welcome to the forum. Are you seeing a psychiatrist for your depression? Sometimes the people around us don't know how to deal with our conditions so they can react in unhelpful ways.

    Hey Layla, I am sorry for the unsupportive other half.
    However, there are many people who can relate, and we all are very supportive. I haven't been here long, but feel free to PM me anytime. We can talk, if you need someone to vent to.
    You are not alone.

    Thanks cosette, I will always keep that in mind. And Junkie, no I'm not. I used to back as a teenager, but eventually I felt it more of a chore to go see him. I'd go for maybe 10 mins, and get no progress, instead I withdrew inside.

    :welcome: to the forum Layla. You sound like so many of us with putting on a facade and making those on the outside think things are fine. I am sorry you have to do that. A good thing about being here is that the mask can come off. You can be who you are and will not be judged for the way you feel. I am sorry to hear that when you reached out for support, you were pushed away. Some people are afraid these feelings are catching or something and with their fear, they push those that need them away. Maybe it is time for you to give professional help another try. You may be more open to it now than you were as a teen. remember that progress for us is measured in small increments. You may not even realize it is happening, but your therapist can. Regardless of what you decide, I hope you are able to find support here and can feel comfortable enough to open up without the facade. take care Layla. :hug:
