    My Note

    The average age of death is somewhere around 80, and I am afraid I will reach nowhere near that. 12 will be my last year. I will take tonight to say goodbye, give away my most happy memories, tidy my room, and write my note. Then, I will lay down in my bed, and sleep to a can of pure helium and a few tranquilizers.

I use CBT I - couch. It's excellent for anxiety, depression, PSTD, & sleep problems & disorders....

    I'm a 31 year old female diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder. My visual hallucinations started about 5 years ago. They happen on & off, but mostly off.

I remember it was always happened when an incident occured, like....

    I was diagnosed bipolar 20+ years ago. I do believe, however, that it goes back to my teens. I have a psychiatrist, no therapist at the time but had a few in the past.

    Medication for depression with teens?

    My 13 year old daughter has been seeing a therapist for a couple of months for anxiety related issues. Yesterday, I discovered she had been cutting herself and now her therapist wants to start her on medications that treat depression. She prescribed remeron and abilify. Does anyone on here have any experience with these meds with a teenager? I am deferring to my therapists expertise on this issue, but the thought of putting her on meds makes me very nervous. Any advice would be greatly appreciated....

    Depression?

    It feels like I've had depression for years.I dont remember the last time I was happy. Most of the time I keep to myself, thats mainly because my family seems to take it all back to God..they dont like how moderate I am and whenever I show how unhappy I am, their reponse is always "this is happening because you need to pray and turn to god more often". Everybody makes me feel like I'm weak or crazy. I took pills a few times, I knew it wasnt enough to kill me but I secretly hoped....

    I have no where else to turn to, any good advice is welcomed.

    Please bear with me, as this is probably going to be a lengthy post. My wife of 17 years suffers from severe depression and anxiety and has since she was a teenager. Our relationship was good for the first couple years and since then its been varying degrees of hell. I love this woman with all of my heart and it hurts me to see her like this. She refuses to get any sort of help and when she does it is because I'm at my wits end and she does it usually try to make me happy or shut me up. When....
