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.

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!

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!
