    I am suicidal and depressed. Every second of my life literally I wish I was in a different place or even better I wish I was dead. I am 34 in college, but I am thinking about leaving everything and some how just going on somekind of missionary work to another country. Maybe if I just leave and go somewhere else I can escape my depression and depressive enviroment. I dont know, what do you think. If I make it to another birthday it will be a miracle.

    You sound like changing, going to a different country is an option that might help. If you think it'd help, and you have all the resources behind you then go for it.

    Environment can definitely have a huge impact on your mental health and I often find myself needing to change or to move around just to keep some kind of balance sometimes.

    I wish you all the best.

    Yes you should go. Go to a different place, a different society, a different world. Missionary work can really help you release the pain. If you want to help others then you should, they might end up helping you more in return.

    Everyone needs to feel important.
    It sounds like you need change and a sense of value.
    Helping some people you don't know in a far off land is a good way to feel appreciated and change your views of this messy world.

    How close are you to finishing your degree? If you're just about there I'd suggest gritting your teeth and getting it done...then if you decided to be a missionary, at least you can be one with a BS or BA. :smile:

    I am about 5 classes away from my assoicates degree, and than of course it will be two more years to get my Bachelors. People I am shocked at how much you can understand what I am going through. Thank you.
