    i know who you are talking about and i'll send a message on to her. i'm glad you went to the hospital and they were able to help. keep posting and sharing how you are doing. sometimes these feelings sneak back, despite our best intentions. glad you are home,

    thank you she did one hell of a job making me feel comfortable enough
    to tell her the truth as to what I took.

    this community definatley did one heck of a good job.
    every one that replied back to me
    and that last split second that I saw some one reaching out to me
    they were willing to help me
    little did that person know what I had taken, but tks to their quick observation
    they were albe to get me to tell them and I with their help phoned the police
    and after that i was taken to the icu. so i owe this formum a lot,
    i am going to still need support cause there is no medication i can take
    i have to pull through this somehow, I don't know how, i don't see any professioanl for another week now. but I THANK ALL OF YOU.

    Hey hopeless - glad to see you back with us!

    I guess reaching out is yourself putting on the oxygen mask when you feel like your life is a aeroplane in trouble. You've 'crash landed' as it were but all your bones are working and you've sustained no long term damage.

    Your a good person at heart hopeless13 - but quite young (I think) and you've really had to endure a lot at a young age when we don't know about depression and sometimes think it is 'just us'. Some say "snap out of it" as if you can just count to ten and feel top of the world! Those people are, not idiots, they are ignorant of the debilitating and serious nature of the illness.

    What helps more than meds is people who you can rely on - people who understand what your going through and who don't judge you. Many people have taken overdoses hopeless13 - many reached out to people here - because that is what the community is for.

    Anyhow, now you are a survivor - if you stick around, I'll bet that YOU will be someone people can reach out to. When you get the better of or get the measure of this depression, you will have inner strengths that will make you a more caring person.

    Just imagine - you could study hard - bury yourself in that a little and hopefully get along with fellow students. You could go to uni - pick up some degree that gives you a start in some kind of career that sees you become a counsellor, perhaps specialising in what you went through.

    Imagine a counsellor who could say "I understand 100%, I tried to kill myself once also"

    Anyhow, I'm just trying to look for the positives - because we need them.

    You being here to thank us is a big plus - we can work on that - and the alternative would have been sadness and tears all round.

    Anyhow, if anyone out there wants to reach out - its gives others a chance to be that person who stands up in an often cruel world and says "I do care - or I do give a sh**"

    The litmus test I often think of is the scenario in which each of us was, perchance, passing a dangerous river in which a person in distress was crying out to be saved.

    Don't ever think people are nasty by nature - because a high proportion of those passing, would risk their life to save another soul.

    You would yourself hopeless13!

    Thanks for letting us all know you are alight now - feel free to ask advice on anything that might be seen as an obstacle for you. Open up a little more to us - but obviously keep your privacy and don't feel like your under any pressure here.

    I know things seem hard now, but keep the faith, your life has barely begun and there are so many great things for you to do and sights to see.

    Good luck with all us and God bless also!

    I''l be watching how you go in the next months - I'm expecting big things in the future also - but you have to find out your own niche in your own time. In the meantime, try and focus on education.

    Any-time you need to vent - feel free!

    PS I agree the work done here is very important.

    thank you i know i still have a hard road
    but i also know that if it wasn't for the concern
    you both showed me i would not be here to walk the road.
    the problems don't go away, the depression don't go away
    i am just going to have to hang on to support of others
    i hope the police came on to let you know they were here
    i wanted them to so u would not worry , that is the last
    i remember. again, thank you.

    Yes, the police did come onto the chat - and the officer was very pleasant and very concerned for you.

    He thanked the other member who was the person who helped you - I came on at a later point and just tried to reassure you.

    So, don't worry there.

    I know things are not easy, it is a difficult road at times, but it really does have some great times waiting for you also.

    Here's hoping we all do!

    Good luck and glad to be of some support. We give it and sometimes we need it also.

    hopeless13, I am glad you are still here too. I'm pretty sure that person doesn't feel that they did anything special. I also am reasonably sure they feel that you did the hard part. The hard part being making the needed call to the police. I am greatfull that you were able to open up and trust this person. :hug: to you.
