    Never think that you're better of not here  because your wrong make a list of the things and people that make you smile and ditch the ones that don't if  excercise isnt making you happy change that routine pick a different excercise any one will keep you fit if done correctly haha listen to me I dont do any lol being happy always starts from within yourself if you keep thinking your not worth it then you believe it more and more im going through my own depression at the moment if ive hellped message me anytime ill try make you smile because its always worth smiling

    Hey Michelle, I've just read such good advice being given to you on here and I hope you read it and realise that things can seem black at times, but if you hang in there, you can find a ray of light, that could light up your life and then you'll wonder how you could have felt like you do right now.

    Don't give up, there will be some people, who you perhaps don't realise, will feel sad, if you do anything really silly like ending life.  When you get over this, you will be stronger and can look back and realise that there are things that you didn't know you had the strength to do, and yet you can do it, which will fuel you to be more brave with other things too.

    Stary with us, we don't know you, but I, for one, would be said if you didn't do something to feel better.  We know how you are feeling and most of us have been there, for different reasons, but we fought and won.  You are an original, a one and only, there's no-one else exactly like you.  You have individual talents and your own beauty, please don't deprive the world of that.

      Thanks Deirdre, I've been there and got the Tshirt, so I have a good idea how Michelle may be feeling, at least, I hope I understand, could be totally wrong, of course, but so many of us feel like that, at times. Whether it's something we all have to face in life, as the REM song says "Everyone hurts", I don't know, but it is sad when someone gives up the fight to live.  It's such a natural thing, to want to live, perhaps the problem is we want things to always be perfect, and things rarely are.

    Hi Michelle, I am sorry that you are feeling so rotten, it is really wearing both physically and emotionally... have you been to see you doctor to check that there are no

    Physical causes for how low you feel?, I have found antidepressants to be very

    Helpful, but in the meantime just be kind to yourself, avoid any kind of pressure and try to relax as much as you can.....You need to rest and recuperate as much as you

    Would for any other illness.. please do not think that your family would be better off

    Without you, I am sure that they would be absolutely devastated if they knew you

    Felt like this..

    I know that you may not think it at the present time, but things can get better, just

    Don't give up hope... my heart and my thoughts go out to you, please take care.

    Deirdre x
