This is something we all face in this life.  We get lonely.  We are disappointed.  We fail.  Sometimes others fail us.  What do you do when you are  truly depressed?  What if it goes on a long time?  Ever considered suicide?  It happens all the time.

Yes, there are genetic markers to being susceptible to depression. Most depression and catastrophizing is generally related to failed future scenarios. Most of us do not take risks because risks…Continue

They used to say that about cod liver oil.  A spoonful a day.  No matter what. These days it seems that everybody is taking anti-depressants (usually SSRI's - Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors)…Continue

Sometimes I hurt without wanting to do it. It just makes me feel like shit.

Comment by John Ware on April 23, 2015 at 6:35am

live in a state and area where heath care and mental Health care is very poor at best. I have no one and my health i seriously bad. I feel like ending all. I been praying and looking for that better day for 20 years. Am I the only man that feels this way with poor health?

Thanks, Daniel!  I'm walking in freedom from depression, because of what God has done!

Comment by Daniel Fallin on September 16, 2013 at 8:31pm
Larry et al. I also know what it's like to have seen suicide as the only way out. I'm so glad that I didn't act on those thoughts. I'm here for anyone who needs to talk it over. I thank god daily that I'm still here and enjoying my life with my family and fiancé. Anyone, any time feel free to contact me.

Michael, I can only imagine how hard it must be.  I don't pretend to know exactly how it is, because I don't know.  But I do encourage you to get in touch with your boss, ASAP,  and talk to him or her.  Go to the site William recommended.  As hard as it might be, do it.

Michael, I'll just repeat my mantra. They'll tell you how to explain your situation to your boss. Be aware that medically-diagnosed depression is a disability and has protections under various laws. NAMI will also tell you about treatment options, causes, etc.

Hello, everyone!  Just wanted to take a minute to let everyone know that I love them.  I know what it is to sincerely believe that suicide is the only rational choice that one has, and is the only option available that would end one's pain and suffering. 

I love you all! 

I'm here for you, if you want to talk.  I'm not a professional counselor.  But I love you!

You're going to make it, Eric! 

Comment by Eric Pierson on November 23, 2012 at 12:08pm

I just got out of a psyche ward, actually, because I started thinking that people would be better off without me.

Coping techniques?  Doing something I am good at or proud of, even something as silly as running an RPG game.

"It's law here in New Jersey too. The price of gas is low, mostly because we have refineries in the area, but I imagine it could be even lower. People complain that out of state they have to be bothered to pump their own gas."

Oregon Wouldn't Let Me Pump My Own Gas

By law, gas may only be pumped by gas station employees. Because safety. And employment. I found this quite odd. I also didn't understand why the price of gas in Oregon wasn't drastically higher than it was in neighbouring Washington where I could pump my own gas. Is Oregon the oddball or is this pretty standard in the USA?See More
