I am feeling depressed right now and I am not sure why...... It comes and goes and I can never figure out exactly why I am feeling down. Sometimes it gets to the point where I want to SH but I know that if I do I am giving up all the time I been clean. I want it so bad but I know that I shouldn't.

Hey there!

I'm sorry that you are feeling this way and I want you to know that we are all here for you no matter what. Recognizing your feelings is very important, especially when you are feeling down.

Any chance you are seeing a therapist? I always recommend talking to a mental health professional, especially when the feelings often come and go. I also suggest talking to loved ones who can help support you when you are feeling down. Having a strong support system can really help change your mindset and will also give you people to talk to during times of crisis.

In regards to self-harm, have you tried writing in a journal when you feel this way? Perhaps getting the thoughts down on paper will help you release these unwanted feelings. There are many other healthy methods of release (examples: working out, talking to loved ones/friends, reading, listening to music, going outside, watching tv/movies, etc.) that work to distract your brain from thoughts of self-harm.

If you have any questions/concerns or if you would like to talk, feel free to private message me! If you are having serious thoughts of suicide/self-harm I recommend calling a hotline to receive immediate help.

Stay strong. I promise life gets better and we are all here for you until it does.
-Ash
