f*kin' hell.....define scary (sad):

top 6 reasons define my present :meh:


I agree, and would only add that I wish MH care had more of a focus on trauma as a common cause, which would fundamentally change treatment which is all too often simply re-traumatizing.
Very solid point.

Beyond that (I'm afraid) no one has a clue.
Mental illnesses are so dynamically different. Treatment's a guessing game.

Do you ever look at a (seemingly) happy group/small crowd and wonder(?)...

...c'mon, who's faking it?

I fake it on a daily basis with work colleagues. Only really honest to my partner how I feel.

Sure Rach, I've been doing the same for years. This time tho,...this particular down, less so for some reason. Might be because of age(?)

Hope you're as well as can be.

In hospital at the moment but feeling ok. Think it’s a high I’m experiencing now as nothing is worrying me.

"Have you ever considered suicide in a serious manner?"

Three percent said no. Why are they here then?
I believe it is possible to feel like you have had enough of life, to feel like you’d “rather be dead” than feeling the way you do or struggling in whatever situation you are in - whilst not actually considering suicide- as the classic hormonal teenage declaration goes “I wish I was dead” or “I wish I had never been born” at that moment they might not want to ‘be’ in life anymore- yet they don’t all have thoughts of killing themselves per se- I guess some people may like to just discuss/ explore having that feeling - trying to understand it & overcome it. Just a theory

Most of the people here are white caucasian, and so it’s funny when they push that white privilege lie. Oh ok that’s why most of us here are on the verge of suicide lol!
Most of us (myself included) being white Caucasian doesn’t mean white privilege doesn’t exist. Not trying to start a race argument here but the two things are completely unrelated. You can be utterly privileged and still be suicidal.

Some of the answers kind of surprised me. Especially with over half of us on anti-depressants. I'd be curious to see how long they have been on them.
I was on mine on and off for about twenties years- without once being recommend or suggested to have any kind of talking therapy or anything - then I got told it would be ok to just come off them- without any warning or suggestion to see how I feel etc. This was at a time I had made v.regular visits to my doc as was suffering months of severe insomnia -coming off them & my life falling apart as a consequence - was atleast in part what caused my huge breakdown. Now being out back on them- new ones - doesn’t help me. But I think if I hadn’t come off them in the first place or had therapy over years - whilst slowly tapering them off - I think I might have ok. I wouldn’t be feeling like my life is over & want to ctb.
