My story (summed up) - June 13th 2017, 11:55 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Hello. As you can tell by the title, this is a summed up version of my story. 3 years ago I got depression and anxiety. Pretty nasty combo huh? When it started I just got sudden feelings of sadness. But they were over pretty quick. As it progressed tho, I became more and more sad. Eventually I became so sad, that I just felt empty. It was like I was a shell of myself. Happy on the outside but sad inside. I started cutting. After I had gained 15-17 clear scars, (the rest are a bit blotchy), I attempted suicide. Not once, but twice. The first time I only lasted 30 secs. After that I started to feel EVEN more worthless and like a coward. I had true hatred for myself. So after more cutting, I attempted a second time. This time I made it to where I was only a few minutes away from being dead. I don't know what made me decide to stop but I'm thankful for it. I cut after that, a lot. but soon I found some creative outlets and joined this website. I'm still definitely not 100% ok, but I'm getting there. I still deal with these things, but I'm trying, so you should to. If I deserve life, then you do to. Never give up, it will get better. PM me if you need someone to talk to. (P.S. I forgot to add that I also struggled with a mild case of anorexia for a few months)

Hey there,

I want to say thank you for sharing your story with us. It upset me to read that you've been through so much, especially with the attempts and cutting, but I'm so happy you're still here. You're right - you DO deserve to live, and you're so unbelievably strong to have got through all of that and be able to now come here and share so honestly what you've fought so hard against. So thank you so much for that. I really hope people find strength in your strength.

It's ok to not be 100% ok. Truth be told, nobody is all the time, but judging by the rest of your post, to be where you are now is still so much better than where you have been. That being said, please ask for help here if you need it! We're so glad to have you here at TH (welcome to the family by the way!), and should you need us, there are so many people so willing to help. So post away, ask for support, speak to people and make friends! We're a lovely bunch and if we can help you feel even better than you do now, then everyone's a winner.

Please feel free to send me a message if you need anything. Remember to stay strong. You're a good person. You deserve to win. <3

books, art, cinema, wine, and so on—
