    Maybe this belongs in another forum- if so, sorry and please feel free to move it.

    I came to this board because obviously I've been having some dark thoughts lately. Like anyone else I've felt like dying before but this is the first time I've been in a situation like this. It's safe to say that I'm going through a pretty serious depression. I've been depressed before, but it's always been characterized by feelings of sadness, and now I just feel sort of numb.

    And my thoughts around ending it for myself are different too. I'm much more calculating about it- basically I've decided that I will take care of all the obligations I have right now, and then I'm out. And where before such thoughts came as a possible solution to end this pain, this time it just feels like the most logical thing for me to do right now given what I have to offer versus what I'm taking from the world around me.

    So it's weird. I'm very unafraid- I feel hopeless and yet very much in my right mind. Can anyone else speak to this? I can't seem to talk to anyone about the state I'm in because I can't find a way to respond to the assurances of 'things will get better, you're just sad, lots of people have it worse'.

    Sounds a bit like me XD. The only reason I don't do it is because there's a chance I could fail. Well atleast with what I have avaiable :unsure:.

    I like that feeling when you're at peace. I only get this feeling for like a split second then I'm back to feeling shit.

    And yes, eventually(or so I'm told :tongue:) you will get through this. Try to stick it out and talk to someone, or even one of those people on a crisis line. I'd think it'd be kinda cool talking to one of them. But that's just me having never told anyone in real life about how I feel XD.

    you sound really depressed and I hope you'll stay and talk to us and let us try to support you...
    wondering if you've had any professional help at all?...therapy, meds, etc.?
    'things will get better, you're just sad, lots of people have it worse'. ..none of this helps someone who suffers the way we do even though they may mean well..
    please don't go till you've exhausted every avenue of help....

    Yes, you seem to be at a really rough point in your life and I am sorry to hear this. I came on here for help as well, and only joined yesterday and the day before but have spent most of my time reading through past threads and seeing what people have wrote and it kind of makes me feel a little better..

    Have you been to a doctor or a counsellor or anything like that? If not then I would advise you to make an appointment as soon as possible :hugtackles: These things take time. But in the end, thats life. And it is all worth the time and effort :rose: Hope you feel a little better soon! xoooxxooxoxoxxo
