    RE: Depressed

    Hi there!

    Have you ever seen a doctor/therapist for your depression? This would be a good idea since it has been for a long time.

    If you get surrounded with the right people, you will find friends that are closer than siblings. In my case I have a lot of friends from church who gives me a lot of support in many areas.

    Your dizziness and body shakes seem to me like seizures, this needs to be addressed by a neurologist.

    Make sure to seek professional help before it is too late.

    God bless you, I'll be praying for you.

    Hello Depressed,

    This is Sha,

    First of all please don't given the enemy what he wants. Trying to take your own life, will not only affect your family, but those in the future; who may need/depend on you.

    It would be nice if we could have placed right in front of us a laid out history of our life - from the beginning birth - to death. Just think if we had access to control our destiny. With that power we can prevent tragedy, choose our friend(s) parents, our spose, our career, and here's the kicker, if we want to be a millionaire, or a billionaire.

    AWH

    Unfortunately, we can't. So what do we do FIGHT, with the assistance; of the only ally we can depend on our BRAIN!

    Let each day be a conquest. When confronted with negative situations/events/circumstances, talk to your brain, for advice, ask it how to handle this situation; without beating the hell out of someone(s) (smile) sorry about that. With this powerful ally of yours, it we put you in control, with confidence in yourself. If those around me can not see the beauty of my character, oh well that's their loss, because I know when the time is right; there will be those who will recognize it, to their advantage; and appreciate me.

    Until then my love and respect for my best friend -BRAIN is all I need, my ally will not deceive me or try to humiliate me.

    Give it a try .. it's waiting to introduce it's self to you.

    Good luck Sha.

    RE: Depressed

    I'm going to say what I said to someone else on this site...

    I have also had multiple suicide attempts, both of which landed me in the hospital to endure a great deal of pain, emotional and physical. If I could go back in time, I would tell my younger self that there is help out there and that suicide isn't the answer.

    After my second attempt I was put on a medication that finally helped me, and who knows, maybe that's what you need. Don't feel ashamed to ask for help. That was a hard part for me too, but once I finally said it to my doctor, I felt a huge weight lift off my shoulders.

    Remember this though: sometimes it takes time to find the right psychologist, psychiatrist, or therapist. I've seen a number of different therapists before I found the one that would help me. In other words, shop around if you have to.

    I know what it feels like to be hopeless. I've hit rock bottom many many times, and at the time it felt like the only escape was death. But that was a lie that I told myself, because I needed a cure for my sickness. Just because it's a mental health issue doesn't mean it's not a serious disease. In your case, I hope you can be strong and say the words, "I need help", to your doctor.

    Look at it this way: you have nothing to lose. And if you ever want to talk, I am ALWAYS available. I'm not a professional, but I've been through it all, and I came out great on the other side. Email me any time if you want to: burr918@gmail.com
