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.

Option and access to painless suicide as a means to warding off depression and catastrophizing.

Started by Saagar Singh Sachdev. Last reply by Larry Nov 18, 2013. 7 Replies

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

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

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 www.nami.org 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.

Comment by Larry on April 19, 2012 at 2:26am

Hello!  I'm Larry.  I've overcome depression and thoughts of suicide.  I've never actually attempted suicide, but I did get to the point where I wanted to kill myself because I thought my wife and children would be much better without me.  Again, I never actually attempted anything, but I did get to the point where I drove to a very high bridge over the Ohio River, and was going to jump off. 

There is hope!  I am very glad I did not kill myself.  Not sure what I can do, but I want to help any man who feels like suicide is a realistic answer.  IT'S NOT!  I'm not a professional counselor; just a man who knows what depression is like and wants to help other men facing it.

I see there very few members of this group.

Is it the norm to go through life never feeling the urge to check out early? It it religion that grounds most people, or the other opiates available; alcohol, food, tv, sports, sex, materialism, that keep people distracted until they do indeed die?
