    Why should I not give in to suicide?

    Everyone says suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, but my mental health issues are not going away. There is nothing temporary about BPD and PTSD and depression and anxiety. I am beyond tired, weary, and exhausted. I wish I could just go to sleep and not wake up.

    Random/racing thoughts and feeling like I'm losing it? Will this pass?

    Since a bit over a week now, and way worse when I'm tired/at night, I have a very weird symptom and it is hard to describe.

    My Problem that is the Solution

    I like to like to post in highly temporary forums, that are cataloged and recorded for future convictions by police powers, as an aggression against civilization as mandate or fiat, and republics that will accuse me of destroying any induced sense of decorum. I have a sense of community. From...

    Hello everyone

    Hi it's nice to meet you all and find this forum :) - although it's kind of weird and gives me that paranoid sort of feeling like I'm being attention seeking. I am a recent graduate feeling very lost and depressed at the moment. It seems that everyone from university has moved out and got...

    Im stuck in a Depressive rut.

    I got to thinking today and realized something. The reason I have been such a depressed and anxiety ridden person is because I have yet to find the one thing that I truthfully enjoy doing. I mean, I can sit around and play video games for hours, just like any other member of my generation. It's...

    Something I've never done is get a tattoo, because I have visions of being old and the tat stretching out of shape, losing all it's colour, getting a bad artist, or just regretting it years later. Now two Canadians have developed a two week tattoo that is 100% safe to use. This is something I...

    How do you live happy when you know its all temporary?

    After some experiences following some sudden deaths in my near family a couple of years ago I started thinking about death.

    Patience, Letting Go, Forgiveness, Self Advocacy

    So right now I am trying to be patient with myself. I'm forgiving me for my short comings. Either due to mental illness or genuine mistakes. I'm so hard on myself. So I accept myself, I forgive myself, and as I try to let go to past experiences I will be my own best advocate. It's funny that...

    I've struggled with depression since about the age of 14, and I'm turning 39 in a few months. Try telling me that is temporary.
