: You are feeling pain now. I know it is hard, depression can feel so bad. Yes life situations can mka eit worse, but the way you feel is how you react at THIS particular moment.
: Part of depression is the feeling that there is no way out. That it will last forever that is not true.
: It will go on. Things will happen that you will never have dreamed of. I know, Kipper. I have had times when I thought I was stuck for ever. It had gone on for too long.
: But I was wrong.
: So wrong, and what if i had given up? I didn't. I walked on. I walked on and after some time walked back into life.
: yes depression can feel like dying. FEEL like it. You are not really dying. You just feel very hurt and slow and low and down. But this is a temporary state.
: Please if you are suicidal get help immediately, you don't want to risk taking your life (and REALLY dying) for an illness that 1) can be treated and 2) does not last for ever.
: Call emergency, a crisis line, or go to www.metanoia.org/suicide/
: Sorry i do not know your story so i cannot give you any specific advice.
: I am having very low days right now but I know I will be ok. this is exaclty it: I know now that there are good days. And there are bad days.
: You need to call somebody immediately! if you hvae nobody you feel close to that you can call, call a crisis line.
: Take a day of the future and focus on it. Tell yourself, ok, exactly one week from now, i will see how i feel then. Can you imagine that you will feel very different from what you are feeling now?
: There is light, there is hope, the is always a way out.
: The dark room of depression has no windows, that's why while in there, we cannot see the light and doubt that it exists.
: But hey, even though the room has no windows and we canot see a thing, the room does have a DOOR.
