have you considered that people have a right to choose when their life ends?
many of these answers are outright insulting, guilt tripping people into continuing their unhappy life

Then I just want to say that everything isn't about you. You might be unhappy that you are alive. I think your family and friends are happy you are alive. If you end your life you put all that on the ones you love.

My sisters friend killed himself and that resulted in my sister closing her inside her room not eating anything for 2 days.. just crying..
That is something I never want to happen again. Think twice, if that doesn't work think twice again!

So you're saying that an individual has no free will in their life simply because of what other people want? "I don't want to be here anymore" "Too bad, I want you here so stay"

I feel for your sister, I really do, I'm not in anyway condoning suicide. But guilt tripping someone out of something like suicide is not the way to go

Maybe I was a little harsh. The thing is that it happened 3 weeks ago and she still doesn't really talk to anybody but her friends and it breaks my heart when I don't know how she is feeling. I tried to ask but she just change the subject and walks away.

Maybe not guilt tripping, but letting them be fully aware of their action. Losing a person in your life, especially to suicide, is horrible. You will always find yourself thinking "I should've known. I could've done something to help. How did I not see it coming?" And when you tell them about what would happen if they died, you aren't saying "You have no choice in your life." You are saying "You need to stay alive; there are so many people that love you and care about you. We would all be so much worse off without you. We will work together to help you."

You know, it's funny; I was just thinking about killing myself when I saw this compilation. It sort of has me twisted up in a weird way. I want it to help or make me feel better but it just makes me feel worse that I think these thoughts everyday.
Maybe I'm just a bit of an idiot.
I just thought it was funny in a weird, ironic, morbid sort of way that I stumbled across this compilation at this very moment.

You are an idiot. Then again, in some way or another everyone is. I know why this post didn't help you like you hoped, it's cause these are generic or directed at certain people. Now let me tell you something, not about what will happen if you succeed, but what will happen if you try...

Everyone will worry about you, day in and day out, for months. Likely you will be tucked away in some psych ward to retrieve a generic treatment, pills, and bills. If you use a blade you will have a constant reminder of your own idiocy, it doesn't fade. Nothing will be the same and you'll be even more depressed by the emotional damages you have dealt to those you love. You will hate yourself more than you thought possible, and every time you return to those thoughts you will hate yourself even more. So don't be an idiot, smile even if you wanna cry, laugh when you wanna hit something, and one day you really will be as happy as you seem.

I was already in a psych ward... twice and neither was because I was suicidal. I guess they were what made me consider suicide in the first place.
I went through so much hell in there that sometimes I don't think I'll ever truly recover.
I've been sick for a long time. For two years. I had to drop out of college because I got so bad. Then I went mute and for some reason that was the biggest slap in the face for me.
The funny thing is that I've started making YouTube videos when I got sick so other people who have the same thing don't have to feel like they're alone. I've become huge in that little community because I have this upbeat personality and I joke and I laugh and everything's fantastic.
Then I switch off the camera and wish I were dead.
I think about my family whom I love but I think I'm nothing more than a burden to them. I think about how they're wasting so much money on me to get me to see all these doctors who think they might be able to help and then I feel like crap because while they're doing all that all I can do is silently wish my body gives up on me own day.

My mom had a bad reaction to some meds a few years back to compensate for her RA. She couldn't take her normal meds because she was pregnant with my little sister. The new meds caused her to have a stroke and almost took away her basic motor skills. Certain sounds or visuals would cause her to start twitching or spazzing uncontrollably. That Christmas Eve, we were visiting her side of the family for Christmas, and she had lost all control. My dad, both her brothers, her sister and her father had to help her back into the car. It was the only Christmas that I hated, and have had back flashbacks to it every year.


Now, she's with a transgender woman who's been taking advantage of her. She's been warned by tranny's previous roommate about her past (in which he was a pedophile and an abuser.) She tried to run upstate to try to get away with my little brother and sister, and mother. God knows what would've happened if we let it. The trans also tried to get my dad arrested and got my mom to try to file a restraining order against him. So much has gone wrong in just the past 3-6 months. I try to keep it bottled in like I normally do, but it hasn't helped this time.

I apologize for my long post, but I finally had to get it out there...

so what do you do when you have clinical depression and PTSD?

i've been to therapy for the past 12 years, i've taken many different meds, and the only thing that really helps me is weed/ booze when i can get it.

anyone have any like, meditation tips or anything that works for them?

My family and i don't get along (long ass story, but the final straw was when i refused to go to church when i was 18 and them being heavily christian, decided to kick me out. I currently live with a buddy of mine but he's always on some kind of drugs, and never wants to really do anything else).

Anything else mate?

was injured during a wrestling match a few years ago, so i've gotten out of shape.

As said before, weed, cigarettes, and booze make me "happy".

I play video games a lot when i'm not working, but it's really losing it's appeal.

any books that could be recommended would be nice, i think reading may help a bit. I like fantasy movies/ games, so if anyone knows of any good movies or books that are like Fight Club, Boondock Saints, LOTR, 300, etc. i'd appreciate it

One novel series I'm really into is the Legends of the Dragonrealm by Richard Knaak. It's a NY Times bestselling series that's over 10 novels long, and still ongoing if I'm correct. It's fantasy though, so that might not be your cup of tea.

You remind me of me in ten years. Hope I can help any bit.

Can't help with the PTSD, but think of things you love. Sometimes its finding foods or some activity that helps, some people like a cool breeze and sit and meditate. Some prefer vigorous or a hot/cold shower/bath. You have to learn your own mind and what you need. Remembering there are always people out there willing to help.

I understand that there are groups out there to try to help people like me, it's helping myself that i care about.

People can give you the best pep talks of your life, shower you with praise, and try to motivate you every day of your life, and it doesn't register for people like me.

I figure that if i don't like myself, then it doesn't matter if other like me because what ever they say will just go in one ear and out the other, so finding a way for me to feel good about myself or atleast distract myself is best.

So far, alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs have helped, but those are a burden on my budget, and they are only temporary.

The best way I've seen people cope with things like this is getting angry and working that anger out through exercise or being creative. Never lash out at anyone or yourself, use the anger as a drive to make you life better in any way you can. **** what everyone else thinks and concentrate on you. On getting better and becoming the amazing person we all know you can be.

Stay strong FJ brother, in our own gay little way, we ******* love you.

For a long time I thought I was worthless to a lot of people, like who would give a **** if I died, but it's in fact really narrow minded to think that, because as the the post above said numerous times you DO mean something to some people may it be that one guy you play league with, the girl/boy that secretly has a crush on you from your school/college/work place, and even if you say that your family hates you, they don't, your mum had to put up with a **** tonne to get your out of her and she'll damn well try her best to not end that.   
In my personal story, I realized that people cared about me too, my family of course, but I didn't realize how many people in my school actually cared too   
Life is just how you look at it, if people want to talk, am always here

The only reason I still want to kill myself is that i'm a burden to my family
sure they will cry for a week or two after my death but then they don't have to waste all of their money on medical care that I suck up all the vitamins that I need to keep on living
I don't have anyone in my life
i dont have a girlfriend or a best friend or anyone who will emotionally even shed a tear for more than a week after I'm dead
I'm replaceable and useless
I know i'm being a pessimist but i had to say this

Look man, I don't know if you're being honest or not in with this, but if you ever feel like know one would shed a tear after your death, you're wrong. I know how you feel. I've been there before, for the same reasons. I don't know how long you've struggled with this but I struggled with it for 5 years. I still don't know why I never went through with it. But believe when I say your family will cry long after you're gone. You may think you're irreplaceable but to your family you're not. You're important to them. They may just not know how to show it. Maybe you've heard this all before and maybe you think it's all just nonsense but you need to hang on. Go on website as an Anon like you did here, tell people how you feel. You'd be surprised how many people will hear you and be there for you. That's how me and my girlfriend met. Maybe that won't happen to you and maybe it will. You don't know. Neither do I. I do know suicide is a choice no one should choose. And hey, if you ever feel down, feel free to message me if you just want to talk. I never have much to do anyways.

Alright, I gotta say, you are approaching this the WRONGEST of ways. Why the hell are you depressed!? you should be angry! Angry at YOURSELF for being this waste of space. And when you're angry at someone you PUNISH them, and what's the worst possible punishment? WORK! That's right, don't ever let that asshole take the easy way out, make him work, make him turn his life around, and one day when he is on his own two feat he can repay the kindness of his family and see the friends that he never knew he had.

I'm gunna comment this because I need to vent. I have had a ****** up life, just ****** with divorced parents and the constant fighting. My dad recently passed on because of pancreatic cancer and I felt like, for all its worth, that it should've been me. I feel like after everyone I hurt, after I betrayed those who care, after I destroyed everything from my anger towards my dad, my family and my life, IT SHOULD'VE BEEN ME!!! After losing days worth of sleep and not eating at all, I feel like there is nothing left for me. I wish to never have met those I care about, hell, there are plenty of days I wish I was never born. I hate myself more for each passing day. My friends have become assholes to me and my little family is growing distant. Counseling is making things worse and I just feel like giving up. At this given point I really don't care anymore. I just want the pain to stop. [Yeah I used a pony image, thumb me down to hell]

Well you're 18, 18 is basically old enough to do whatever **** on your own so fantastic. but mind me asking what you do for a living/studies?

Back when I was 18... hmm, seems so far away but in reality it's only 3 years. Let me tell you a little story of me when I was 18. Back then I was self loathing and basically just a normal guy, I think just like you. (we differ on me having had a nice family who was the only light in my darkness) You see I think we all have some big obstacles in our early life, to test if we really are the persons we claim to be. I see a lot of people who try to help others, but ultimately only does it for themselves, but that's where I think people like you and me differ (Special snowflakes, or that one frosties that looks like Jebus). We help people because we don't want them to feel like we have done, to help them avoid this dark pit of despair. But once you've been down in the pit of despair(trademarked) for long enough, it's almost like your eyes get used to the darkness and you can start looking for some way out of there.

Anyhow, once I looked for a way out of the pit (In my case I traveled to Ireland for about a year and started a new) I climbed and climbed and climbed. And every step I toop upwards, I would remind myself how bad it was at the bottom, and refuse to let myself fall back. Like this, I had finally gotten together with this girl, and man oh man she was the girl of my dreams, but well, about 3 days later I got the call from the company I worked for, we're sending you back home, you cannot stay here anymore. And what other choice did I have but to comply? The night before my flight back to Denmark I stayed up looking at her sleeping (She thought it was creepy, I never told her why) just thinking to myself, I'm loosing this magnificent girl here, but she's taught me so much, she has helped me climb a little further back out, it hurt that I was leaving but in the end I looked at her in the airport and smiled with a wink.

nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope if i met you in person i would slap you

if you don't have a reason to continue, you need to find one. life is a big pain in the ass, and it may not just give you one, so don't give up, go out and find it
that's what i'm trying to do

doesnt mean you should give up...yah i understand your life is hard right now and probably will be for a while but you should never give up what life has to offer... something great can come out of this you just got to keep pushing yourself towards the light and fight off the darkness as much as you can
there is a light at the end of every dark road you just got to keep on moving forward and try not to look back too often
i probably didnt give out much advice hell this might not even be helpful but...dont give up yet
it will get better it always does in time i know it probably sounds stupid and cliche but ive been there (not exactly the same scenario but similar) and i promise you it does get better

depression is only in your head. the best cure is to just accept it and deal with your ****, quit thinking about yourself and grow the **** up....

depression is not real your right on that account.... neither is heartbreak, neither is a loved on dying, neither is the pain of wishes unfulfilled or dreams never realized.. it doesn't mean it hurts any less. good for you for being strong enough to deal with your problems..... use that gift to help others with theirs...

thanks, for appreciating my unpopular opinion. and for understanding where I come from. I've never considered myself emotionally tough person, I mean, i can sympathize with someone with heartbreak/loved one dying etc... I just think it's important to realize that while emotional pain is real, it arises in the host it consumes. My solution for depression was to just not think of the ****** stuff, and remember that I can still live my life however I want.

well look at how you conveyed your message, once you start swearing not only have you created hostility but everyone now thinks your iq is that of a toaster....
I have had points where if i let my depression get to me..... i would in fact be dead.... every human being needs to relies life is theirs, its their happiness that matters. i found what makes me happy the most and i do it. yes life still suck in some regards but when i do my thing no body cant touch me. so when others need that help to get back up and keep fighting i'm there, cause i found the secret to my happiness, so its my duty to help them find theirs....that's the way i figure it.

I agree with everything you just said except for the cursing part. Maybe as a majority people associate curse words with stupidity, but on the internet i really don't give a F***.
Anyways, my point is that I'm part of "everybody". and I think curse words can be beautiful.
Have a lovely ******* night!

Obviously you know NOTHING about it. My best friend on the whole damn planet lost his daughter and fiancee in a car crash and he was depressed for years. You wanna ******* tell me that was in his head? You are honestly the stupidest mother ****** I have seen on the internet in a long ******* time. GO ****[big][big] YOURSELF. I don't even care if your trolling, there's a ******* line.

Well yeah, you can come up with ****** situations all you want. The fact is, he CAN get over it, by accepting it and moving on (the hardest part). I'm not saying that it doesn't have real life consequences (that would be false). Moving on is the hardest part of depression, because every individual has to do it on their own, in their own way. I'm not going to compare my story to yours, but I tried to commit suicide twice in my lifetime, after all the pain, I decided I was tired of it. So I ignored my pain, made friends, and guess what? Several years down the line, I can say that things have gotten a little better. Sorry for posting my unpopular opinion, but the fact is that depression is the only medical condition that you can heal by ignoring it. Honestly, I could just be burying my pain, but I can't ignore that it allowed me to get through the darkest times in my life.

You idiot. You think you can just psych yourself up to get over it? It's not a stage of grief, m8. It's an imbalance of neurotransmitters.

I said he was depressed for years. So yeah, he got over it. But guess what, he still wears her ring on a necklace he never takes off. So don't tell me it's not just a thing you can just be like "oh well, whatever" over. www.apa.org/topics/depress/recover.aspx?item=2

Obesity is also recognized as a real disease, now i am not saying depression isn't real,,,,, i have had it, my mother has it my father takes happy pills and my fiance' is clinically depressed...
but to call it a full blown disease seems a bit excessive don't you think?

i am not arguing with you that it is a problem..... but in today's day and age i think we try to remove the blame and thus take away responsibility and any means of self reliance, what happens when you are alone with a loaded gun like i once was? blame society for not helping you sooner and pull the trigger? or relies that the only way out now is too start climbing..... i agree people need help... but people do not need to be babied....

I'm glad you're well informed, it helps me reevaluate my own beleifs on the subject.
I'm not saying it's something you can just put behind you in a week. That's why I tried emphasize the "moving on" part; for many people moving on is too hard for them. I'm saying that in depression, you're not suffering from an affliction. In depression, YOU are your own worst enemy. For example, since you keep going back to your friend's story, if I were your friend, wearing the ring may soothe his pain at first glance, but really, it's only hurting him more, like a scar that he never allows to heal. Look, neither of us are experts on the subject (i've already admitted you've done more research than me), but these are my experiences with depression and i've benefited from them. Again, sorry for the unpopular opinion, but that's how i feel.

P.S. I'm done for now, I'm going offline soon because I have plans tonight with friends. It was a pleasure.

Does anyone else ever feel like they deserve their problems and that suicide would be wasted on them? It happens to me sometimes and I've never heard of it from anyone else.

I think so too, but my sister thinks that's catholic guilt, masochism. She doesn't get it.

"catholic guilt masochism"

Not sure fetish or psychological issue

If you don't mind me asking, what makes her think that?

She's a sociologist, and she doesn't like catholicism. She doesn't think we should feel guilty about what's done. I'm not even religious though.

Me neither. I want to be wise and fortuitous enough to be a good Catholic some day, but I've got a long way to come. I kind of get where she's coming from, but there's probably more to it than that.
