I realize that this is an old post but I just had to say something. This is the best response I have read anywhere.

I have gone through years of depression and I can't even describe it here. I attempted suicide years ago. Without thinking of anything. And it was such an easy decision to make at the time.

I have heard of several different successful suicides by people that I did not know. After the news gets out people say that they understand the grief that this person must have felt or they say that there is no way that things could have been that bad. I even heard someone say how selfish this act is. They just do not get it. I deal with it every day again and no one can say they understand it if they have not been through it.

I have never been treated. I have never seen a doctor. Never even talked to anyone about it. But I can feel it. And I know what it is like.

Wow I cant thank you enough for sharing. I'm a therapist and I struggle with chronic depression and suicide almost daily... Now most people are going to judge and say how could I possible be a therapist and even provide help for people considering what I feel on a daily basis. Please don't judge me, I know boundaries and have dealt with these symptoms for long enough that I guess they are a part of me but never let it interfere with my patient therapy, plus my sessions are taped for supervision so if anyone had a clue to how I felt on the inside they surely wouldn't be able to tell at work. A lot of us just do what we have to do tom survive day to day and it shouldn't be that way but you can't tell society ommm I'm going to take a brake now cause I feel suicidal and chronically depressed ... Where getting out of bed feels almost impossible.

Thanks for letting me share and go on with my loose associations

I can understand, but I think if the therapist or doctor actually believes you and is trying to understand it makes a difference.

Do those hotlines ever work? I've never tried them before. But I can't imagine the person on the other side truthfully sympathizing with me, especially since I don't feel I deserve it anyway.

The same question is fervently on my mind.
