    It is not a cowards way out at all, but stick at it and things will get better. I have considered suicide many times as I cannot imagine my life carrying on how it is, but these dark days are not here to stay; they are here to pass.

    I'm sorry to hear how you feel.

    I don't know whether you've taken this step or not, but counselling is really worth doing. It helped me a lot and I didn't need to be put on medication. Other things that have helped me has been telling others and noting down at the end of every day 3 things that have happened in the day that are good.

    I didn't realise how many people really cared until I began talking about the way I feel. Many people know about my depression now and many people ask me how I'm doing or what they can do to help. I tell them I'm okay, and that I don't need help, but them asking me is all the help I need.

    Writing down good things at the end of the day allows me to go to sleep with a somewhat positive attitude, I found it was one of the best ways towards recovery for me and it became easier to find things I enjoyed.

    People do care about you, this is not something you have to deal with alone. Talking is the best medicine.

Well not for me! Just when I think I've hit rock bottom the hole only seems to get deeper! X

      You've done a good thing by coming on to here. All these replies show that people really do care.

      Talk to your friends, explain to them that you have depression and at this time, you would appreciate anything they can do to help you. I told my friends that if they could try to get me out of the house as often as possible then that would be great.

      I used to spend all day, everyday in bed trying to sleep so that I wouldn't have the bad thoughts in my head. I needed my Mum, my friends, my hobbies to help me get away from this dark place.

      You can do it, you've come this far, so why not try to go further? You can make it, I promise X

      I've called the Samaritans so many times that I'm sure they're fed up with me, to be honest the trip to my gp is the reason I feel worse

      You know when you think or get told things can only get better ? Well they don't ! Not for me! Just when I think this is it! This is my rock bottom! I'm proved otherwise

    Your not a coward but you are weak to be harming yourself. You don't have to be. You can take control. You are in my situation three money he ago. It doesn't help it just makes you relive the pain that's in your mind. Samaritans aren't bored or tired of you they are interchangeable so you probably have never had thre same person twice anyway. Focus on the positive not th negative. Focus on you and nobody else. There are people going through similar to you so reach out to them. If that's on this, on depression groups, anything! Talk to people's le in a similar scenario who want to get better and your life will change. XXXX please don't hurt yourself

    Hello dondons

    How are you feeling now, do you feel a chat with your GP may be a good idea.

    When people cut, they want to feel people are feeing their pain, if not already talk to your GP. It an also be advisable to go and get the cuts dressed so you will ned to call the Emergency Line 111 especially if the cuts are deep.

    You need help and are showing that by your actions, Let people help you

    Always around
