I am so outraged at what I went through on here recently that it has made me not want to come on here anymore. Yet at the same time I need it too. Most of you have suffered, many are still suffering. Some of you ask for help, while others don't want it. Some feel that they had tried everything so what's the point. The ones who ask for it are willing to help themselves, other are not. If you don't help yourself you are not going to heal ultimately. SOME of the younger generation think they know it all; someone asked to me yesterday "What's age got to do with it?" Age has everything to do with it! A person in their 40's and 50's have lived with and through their pain for many years, some have learned to deal with it, some are treating it, some have healed from it. They have lived a longer life, they have learned so much more from life. An 18 year old has not even began to live their life yet. Some of them haven't even left home and gained the knowledge and experience of being independent. I have studied psychology for 30 years, yet I am told by some kid "You need to get educated" Basically what I am saying to those who want the help and advice is to listen to those who have lived and suffered, and those who are ignorant and rude need to start respecting people and grow up. There are some truly great people on here who are here to support those who want it. Some of these people can help guide you. This forum is not a joke, and I resent those who come on here bagging on other people who are feeling suicidal or depressed. It is NOT going to help them. This is life, no-one said it was easy. But it can be great if you help yourself. For those who are so willing to give up get the help you need. If you have tried help and it is not working, change it. Change your therapist, change your meds, change your life. But, Don't end it.... You never know what's around the corner.
