Original thread - Original Post by DesertMouse1

After going through a recent event where someone very close to me was feeling depressed and suicidal, thought I'd make some GA's to get a point across. If you are feeling this way, there is help, and people out there want to help. You're not alone and you are cared about. If you are not of this state of mind, realize that you could be the difference between them getting help, or comitting suicide. You will most likely never know how, who, or how many you helped, but that should make no difference. It just matters that you were there. Go and be the best you that you can be. If anyone out there needs someone, i accept all steam friend requests and will reply as soon as i see your message.
Try and keep the thread alive for a while so that more can see it. May i suggest pictures of cats? Anything really.

I've dealt with depression for over a decade, plus PTSD and some health complications which also make things even worse than what they are. But at least I had people that helped me. Friends, family, and even strangers from support groups that made things easier.
You should NEVER think you are alone, because there's always someone willing to help if you look around you. This might sound clichΓ© but it's real, there are terrible people but there are also extremely kind ones. πŸ’™

Also, if you can and you feel strong enough, please lend a hand to others in need. I've done this for years when I am confident enough that I can take on other people's problems without affecting my health to the point of getting me down.
Remember it's important to help others, but also take care of yourself.

Diagnosed depression isn't a joke (as in diagnosed by a professional and not by the patient, don't confuse it with other symptoms!). It's a serious condition and it shouldn't be taken lightly because it's not a physical illness. Just like cancer ends up with death, depression will escalate to suicide or cripple you in many ways.

Everyone feels "down" once in a while, but for some people it's a daily pattern of depression. The good news is that it is treatable.
Usually through therapy, medication, or a combination of the two. Antidepressant medication, despite some side effects, can help lift a person from the depths of depression within weeks of starting medication therapy.

If one medication doesn't work for you or the side effects are too much for you to live with, keep in mind that there are many others your doctor could give you to try.
Make sure your doctor knows about any other meds you are taking and always ask questions about your medication therapy, if needed.

Btw, DON'T get self-diagnosed, it's a terrible idea. You might be sad or during a grieving period, so always check with a doctor.
Besides, I don't know about other countries but over here antidepressants are only available if you have a medical prescription, so you will only be left with a possibly wrong diagnostic and no way to deal with it.

Depends on what you count as not alone... if some people who will tolerate my bullshit and give generic consolations then sure, there are some, although very few... if people who actually understand or can relate I doubt there are any on the planet... oh, and not all countries are USA, in Russia mental institutions are about as useful as hitting yourself with a brick, best they can do is lock you up for a couple months with other psychos so you don't bother normal people.

Hi Mully, just wanted to say thank you to you (and others) for keeping this thread going. I picked my eldest child (22) up from a psych ward this morning. Its an on-going situation for her but this had been the worst she has been in a long time. I've struggled with low level depression and anxiety on and off my whole life but I cannot wrap my brain around just how bad things are for my daughter and feel completely helpless trying to support her. Really all I can do at the moment is remind her that there are people who understand and can help, love and support her, and that she is not alone. And bump this thread to remind other people that this shit is real, not made up, not attention seeking, not something someone can choose 'get over' or 'snap out of'. So be kind. And think before you dismiss their situation as not real or too much of a pain in the ass to deal with or whatever. Pay it forward. If for no other reason that one day it might be you or your beautiful baby that needs this help.
tldr. tnx for thread, bumped with love.

Your daughter is incredibly lucky to have you as her mother. Mine never understood why I suffer from depression, why I became suicidal. When I told her, in tears, that I didn't have friends at school, she just replied with a rather cold 'I know'. She asked my doctor what's wrong with me, assuming I must be sick in the head for being so desperate and lonely, that I wanted to end my life. He kindly responded that it's not my head that's sick, but my soul.
I decided to shorten this post a little, since I got too emotional
I really, really hope that more children, no matter if still small, or already grown up, have parents like you. It's so much harder if your family does not support you and while I'm a bit jealous, I'm also happy for your daughter and I hope she finds her way. Good luck for both of you ❀

Hi Soraiah, thank you for your post, I really appreciated your kind words. I felt kind of awkward writing anything, I don't normally talk about my life to anyone much. I didn't realize I needed that bit of positive feedback so much. So again, thank you. And It sounds like you have had a pretty rough ride in life yourself. (read your full post before i got online) - love and hugs to you, you are amazing and strong).
