    i don't have words to describe this feeling, I am ready to die, want help, but apparently there is none, so don't know what else to do at this point except die soon.

    What do you mean there's no help? You've got all of us? What's making you feel so low? I'm sure you can change your life around if you were to approach things the right way?

    We are here for you every step of the way.

    How can you help me? I have tried for years to talk to people on here, but it doesn't help me. I need help in real life, with real people, who know how to treat this.

    I assume you mean treating depression, right? Have you never gained anything from speaking to psychologists?

    I have a doctor and a therapist, I talk to them twice a week and it's not helping, i need more help but no one will help me!

    Have your doctors ever talked about cognitive behavioral therapy? I think it's a very good approach, if done properly.

    From Wikipedia:

    The particular therapeutic techniques vary within the different approaches of CBT according to the particular kind of problem issues, but commonly may include keeping a diary of significant events and associated feelings, thoughts and behaviors; questioning and testing cognitions, assumptions, evaluations and beliefs that might be unhelpful and unrealistic; gradually facing activities which may have been avoided; and trying out new ways of behaving and reacting. Relaxation, mindfulness and distraction techniques are also commonly included.

    I don't know how to ask the people that are supposed to help me for help. If I tell them I am going to kill myself, do you think will help me? What if they don't? What if there is just more agony? Could anything be worse? Fuck, I am scared of death, there has to be another option, i am so scared.

    i think you need to head to the nearest ER and tell them what you just said

    i don't know what else to suggest, but that should get you some help

    please hon

    ok - here's a couple of ideas

    try writing a letter to yourself telling yourself how you feel and what you need then hand it to the doctor and/or your therapist - that way you don't actually have to speak to them directly

    or print out this thread and any others you think they need to see and give them the printouts - that way you wouldn't have to deal with extra writing if you don't feel up to it

    or allow someone on the forum to speak to your people on your behalf to help open the door - someone offered to do that for me, i just have to do some digging to remember who

    do you think any of these could be helpful?

    Yes, those are helpful ideas. I don't know if I can do them, i did email my friend and told her how bad it was, and how i cant seem to convey this to my treatment team, she also said I should write it down and give it to them, but I wont see him until monday.. it fucking hurts so bad.

    write it down now so you can get some of it our of your system

    handwrite it or use the PC and print it - whichever is easier

    :hug:

    just hold on

    keep posting and let us all help you get through this moment and the next until monday rolls around

    i apologize to bill withers - any edits are mine

    thanks for caring, it helps a lot to know at least one person really cares and understands and knows how bad this feels.

    you know that more people care, but sometimes it's hard to reply

    sometimes pain this deep frightens people other than ourselves

    other people are following all of this but may not be sure how to help

    but they are here for you nonetheless
