If keeping your mind on him is what it takes...do it.
And realize your worth.
Believe me, your little boy is nuts about you.
Don't leave him to the wolves of this world.
And not to preach at you, or anybody else, but God has helped me turn many a corner. I give Him all the credit for bringing me to the place I am today.

I love my black peepholes!!
Keep your head up.

This!

I rarely participate in these types of convos but I came in here to see how HD was doing and I'm glad to see her doing better but I am sad bc I wasn't expecting to relate to as many people that have posted in this thread. I have suffered from depression since I was in my teens. Depression never really goes away. I just have bouts of depression that are less severe than others. Right now I am having a few good days and really trying to keep my head above water.

In my severe bouts of depression I have contemplated killing myself but never could go through with it. My mother suffered from depression and my sister sufferd as well. I feel like I was genetically predisposed to it because I have a family history of mental illness. I have also had a lot happen to me in the past few years. That is why I hate sometimes when people who have no idea how it feels to tell someone to cheer up and life isn't half bad. I know it doesn't come from a place of malice but sometimes I just want to scream! I don't want to be like this but sometimes I get tired of fighting to stay above water.

Fighting against depression is always an uphill battle for me. My battles are easier some days than others. I have decided to see a therapist or a psychologist to see if there is a better way to deal with this. I have amazing mental health benefits which I need to use. I don't like feeling this way but it's like I have no control over it either.

HD, I am glad that you are feeling better. I have felt like I serve no purpose here on earth. I know what you felt like. Just know that you have purpose and you are loved. My mom used to say that trouble don't last always..

funny the two of you should mention. i was having this exact convo with a friend of mine. for as long as he could remember, he hasn't wanted to be here. he's even followed through and almost succeeded, but was found.  he feels that this world is fleeting and that he's ready for the next level/plane of existence. 

the way he explains it, he's not so much as depressed as he is tired-- a facet (if you will) of depression. it's an underling feeling playing in the background that just never goes away. he can't stop it, he can only hope to contain it. some days are (much) better than others.

HD, I'm glad you found a place to volunteer, that's a great first step!

Do you have your next step lined up? I know you said you're interested in support groups, that's a great idea. You might check some local universities in both the counseling dept and the psychology dept and see if they have groups or free therapy. I think individual therapy is a great option too. If you don't have insurance, it might take a little digging, but a lot of private psychologists have interns working for them who will offer free services, or if you're low income there are community agencies Thumbs Up

I always come into these threads talking about medication, and I don't want to make it seem like the end-all-be all.. but if this is something you've been struggling with for awhile, and it's not a situational-type of depression, you might need really want to consider seeing a psychiatrist  to discuss medication. They can help your mind adjust well enough to benefit even more from the therapy, volunteering etc.

And save that hotline # in your phone!

Keep yourself busy. Not in an overwhelming way, but I've seen people who stay in their homes, shades closed, nothing to do during the day, end up in a much worse place than the ones who look for healthy outlets in their journey to get well.

Heart

eta: yall have a lot of amazing stories. Rajin, I loved yours
