    Hi.....I certainly dont deserve help...but maybe it would help someone in a similar position to can i ask if people would share....has anyone else fought suicidal thoughts for years(i mean years 10+) , really struggled and then overcame or found a way to cope/be happy/content? plus i guess i never asked anyone this...i know depression is an ongoing battle(or often can be) ther e a point ,if you are "happy", that these thoughts disapate...or will I always have something that might trigger them?

    i could use some success stories and want to be realistic at the same time.

    thank you.

    8 years ago I tried to commit suicide. Since then I have often depression. But I do not wrestle with it. I took it as a part of themselves.

    Yes. Since I was a teenager. Looking back on it now maybe even before then. There were two periods in my life where I felt I had control of depression:

    1. for about a year mid way through university. I became so absorbed in my studies and so hopeful for the future. I thought I had purpose. There was some momentum there. It didn't last for me, but I think there is merit to the idea of finding something you care about so much it allows you to push through the bad times in hope of something better.


    2. right now. Thanks to meds. The combination of seroquel and citalopram stabilizes my mood. I feel... neutral, i guess, more of the time. Depression is still there but periods of it are shorter, easier to overcome, easier to ride them out. I guess working with a psychiatrist to try to figure out a diagnosis has helped too,. I know now that I am not imagining my problems. They are real and there are people who can help me deal with them. I am not alone.
