    Praying to die

    Suicide is a current thought that mumbles arround in my mind. But i find it to be... selfish. I can't do that to my parents. I don't allow myself to even think about the potential pain they could feel if their daughter die. Therefore I pray. I've been praying everyday for god to take me so i...

    lifes just pointless

    After spending most of my life feeling depressed I finally forced myself to see a doctor a few months back, and literally nothing has changed. They've tried me on two different tablets and they're not helping at all. I've pretty much given up. I've been depressed since an early age looking...

    Giving Up My Last addiction-Fags

    OK. I've been forced through lack of cash to give up fags. I'm hoping that my GP Nurse will support me in providing me with Patches,Gum, and hopefully Vypers. After I pay my Supported Accomadation Landlady i'm only left with £65 a week. I've never trusted in the purity of Tax Free Cigarettes...

    Hearing "Gods voice"

    So I have been hearing a voice that calls itself God ever since I was seriously ill and as a result feel very close to God. The only problem is that sometimes the voice can be somewhat nasty. For example I can be praying for half an hour and for that half an hour the voice replies in an...

    Haven't posted in some time, having a lot of trouble even focusing on anything. Feels like my mind is just slowly shutting down. Whatever social skills I could claim went away, and its just me and the negative thoughts. I'm not at risk, I suppose, not really. Obsessed with dying, praying for...

    I don't wanna do it

    Ok something is inside of me again making me wanna do something that I don't wanna do. I was just listening happily to my music and then suddenly I thought that maybe I just should just self harm like it just seems so easy to do and feel it and then I think if I do it then maybe it would change...

    Bribery and religion

    I was just watching a documentary of the Buddhist Broadcasting here in the Netherlands, and it seems it is the custom in the Far East for people to give money to Buddhist temples when they are praying for things. One man asked the question, is this not bribery of the Buddha? Does not that kind...

    Visited my suicidal friend in hospital last night

    My husband was very kind and drove to the hospital -- something I couldn't have done with my anxiety about driving. I took her several books and smuggled in a chocolate bar. She was so happy I came to visit her, she was jumping up and down and giving me big hugs. I know what it's like to have no...

    My suicidal friend smuggled self harm instrument into hospital

    I should have expected it as she is very rebellious and incorrigible. Reasons I also adore her. But the staff caught her and I'm hoping she won't find a creative way to SH. I miss her so much. She is my only true friend and I'm so glad she is safe. I feel kind of lonely not being able to phone...

    Just put on new med-one side effect is weight loss!

    My dr just added this to my Depekote, Cymbalta, Xanax and Seroquel--it' called Zonisamide generic forZonegran. I was shocked there was a drug I hadn't already tried, thrilled really. I've been on it a week and already feel better. Much less depressed. Now I'm praying for some weight loss!

    Anxiety Worse in Summer

    I've always (well since I was around 18) felt worse in the summer, particularly in hot weather. I don't know why, but it's during this time of year when my anxiety starts to pick up. I hate the way the sun shines through my bedroom window (even through closed curtains), it makes me feel I'm...

    lost faith

    I seem to have lost a faith that I am not sure I ever had. I used to find early morning communion service very comforting but I have not set foot in a church for some years. Praying is difficult and not really sure who to talk to, any ideas? m
