    I don't know what else to do...

    I literally feel like there is no way out. I drink alcohol to try to numb the pain (I start drinking around 6am)...and now my body is rejecting it too. The tightness that I feel in my chest just from being depressed feels like it's crushing me from the inside out. I want to cry but the tears won't fall.

    I need to be heard...

    I've never posted on a message board before. I'm not sure if this board is even meant as a support kind of group, but here I go anyway.

    I'm scared of and for my husband...

    I feel like I can clearly see the changes in my husband's mental state over the last 6 years or so. We both did drugs recreationally, and both had our issues with chemical dependency. I have dealt with depression and anxiety for most of my life. And my family, on both sides, has experienced a wide range of mental health issues from PTSD to schizophrenia so I am no stranger to the signs and symptoms that come with these kinds of problems. So, it pains me and frustrates me to no end to see my husband....

    I need help

    I don’t know where to begin and I don’t know why I’m here. I’ve had anxiety since I was a little kid and depression since I was about 15. I’ve been on medications since 16. Tried to kill myself once. Failed. And haven’t thought about it since. Until now. I want to die. I don’t want to kill myself but I don’t want to be alive anymore. I’m just so empty and tired and in pain and nauseous and done. I started cutting 6 months ago...it’s helped me stop thinking about suicide but it’s all getting worse....
