    I actually really did <Mod Edit, WildCherry: Methods>.

    I can't explain how profound this is. I feel completely different. I have now decided to work my way out of my slump. I've decided to better my self physically and emotionally and mentally, and soon I will be seeing a therapist or something. I'm going to get through this and come out stronger and live my life. This is surreal.

    I talked to my two best friends online, who I haven't spoken to for nearly 7 months, and confessed everything. I came clean.

    Everything is going to be different from now on. I called my mom and told her all this, and for the first time felt comfortable saying 'I love you'. I just feel like life really isn't over for me yet, not this way. I'm going to soldier on and improve on every aspect of my life in order to continue and live the life of a normal person. I'm gonna take it slow because I've been completely isolated for so long, and I need to take it slow and re-assimilate myself into society.

    And I have to say, a very sincere thank you to everyone here. I love you all. The support I have gotten on here must have gotten to me sub consciously or something.

    I'm lost for words.

    Wow! Is all I can say and how I'm very proud of you for all of this - even though we don't know each other. I think it takes immense courage to say 'I am going to change my life, I am going to fight this'.

    You'll definitely be an inspiration to many on here.

    I had to edit your post to take out the mention of methods. But I'm really glad you're still here, and that you've reached out and made the decision to talk to your mom and your friends.

    That is great! I was just wondering whether you couldn't try and explain what happened to make you suddenly feel like that, simply because it might help a lot of others here to get some insight into it?

    That is truly wonderful. And yes please take it slowly. One day at a time. I can only imagine how you feel, knowing you have your life ahead of you, absolutely euphoric! But dont get too far ahead of yourself. Take things slowly so that you dont become overwhelmed and find yourself tiring out. I'm so happy to see that the site and the members helped you. I hope that the members that helped you feel some happiness in knowing that they were able to make a difference. A "good feeling" post for all involved I'd say. Now keep moving forward. And please keep us posted. A post like yours is a beam of sunlight in so much darkness!!! You should be very proud and happy.

    You're welcome ^__^ .

    Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to be around much longer, either in this community or in life. I can't take it anymore. The darkness is eating me, violently. I'm going to try my very best to kill myself if I turn 30 and things are the same. I turn 30 soon. Forgive me. I can't take it anymore. I've hurt too many people. I'm a ghost now, please, please don't let this affect you, march on soldier, forget about me - I'm in Hell...please carry on stay super strong ^__^ I'm dying inside mate...

    createdforopinion, I'm very glad to hear that. You've achieved something that, for too many of us, seems like an impossible dream. Best of luck!

    Thank you all again for your kind words.

    I have been taken things slowly, and I'm gradually climbing my way back to the top of life, and it may feel strange and foreign at first, because I don't think I've ever been there.

    And I hope this profound change can happen for all of you on here who are/were just like me, ready to end it all. And I will probably never know what that change was, but it came from knowing that I was seconds away from actually dying. And in that instant I knew that there was so much more to do in life, and that if I really work at it, I can start anew and become a stronger person who will be able to deal with the harshness of life in the future.

    that im sure is a great feeling for you to be experiencing.
    sometimes we are lucky enough to meet and greet reality and realize there are ways to cope. for me, the last time i snapped, i came to realise its up to me to make things happen. i had to change the way i think. i came to realize i was the one sitting doing nothing as the world turned everyday.
    we will have our bad days, but the idea is to make them fewer and not lasting as long as they used to. my days have changed in just such a manner.

    great steps you have taken. keep steppin out.

    Lots of people have had sudden good days and smeared a lot of
    optimism around. Wait six months. You'll be back here. Depression doesn't let go so easily.

    well pileofgarbage, thats what changes i made. to not think like that. we have to take what comes as it comes. i know some days will be hard, but its how you deal with them that makes the differance.

    I know that I'll never completely rid myself of depression, I'm thinking it'll stay with me for the next few years, at least. The change that I had was about thinking and working towards a goal, to keep on living and advancing in life, instead of not doing anything and letting myself rot. For instance, I'm thinking about getting in great shape and joining the army within the year. Maybe. I'll never know what I really want to do, unfortunately.
