New update: Things are getting worse and better

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hey again.

I've been suffering a lot lately. I tried to kill myself a few times in the past using alcohol overdoses, hoping I might choke whilst I sleep. I realise now the reason I didn't let myself die is the desire to live. I know that sounds strange, but I want to live, and I want to be happy, it just isnt that easy.

Lately, things have gotten worse. I got fired from my job during a probation period without any real notice as to why, which caused me to want to end it all a lot more, but I fought threw it. It made me feel really down, but then I told someone about everything again, and they actually tried to help me, and that's been a great feeling.

Lately, thing's have started to look up. I've been out with a few friends and had a good couple of nights. I even met a nice girl who Im talking to. I hope it works out. 

It seems that things can only get better from here so I'm quite hopeful. Not only have I told a new friend about my problems, but I've also told my family, who now are trying to help me through this. I'm proud of myslef for having the courage to talk about this when it was so hard to do so. Mainly though, I want to thank all of you. All of you have been an inspiration in my recovery, offering not only help and advice, but friendship. And that means a lot.

I hope everyone who has a depression problem uses this website, because everyone here are lovely and a lot of help. 

Thank you all again.

    I am roud of you too.  It not easy to tell people how you are feeling, but it is a burden that can be shared and supported. Well done for opening up to other people in your life.  Yes it would have been hard for you, but as youhave found, a great relief.

    Friendship and family are very importat in our rocky road.  I agree so many upportive peoplesit.  thl gretel toknw there re others who understd howwe feel.

    You sound lovey,caring young  man.  I wish you luck, and hope you soon find another job.
