I think im going to give up.. - March 4th 2009, 04:36 PM

The last 3 posts were from me...I think I have been doing good for the past 3 days but I just think I am going to give up because I feel the depression and sadness coming back. I have a status thing on this website called "Twitter" and I wrote on there ...."I think im going to give up, thought I was stronger but I am just vulnerable and weak" I am just starting to feel the depression coming back.... I can do it and try again another day I guess.

You can do it. You really can. You have got to believe in yourself, because honestly you can do this. Don't give up because think about how bad you will feel once you have self harmed. You are strong to have got this far and you can get further although it might not be easy. Do something now before the depression gets really bad. Try and do something that will make you feel more positive. This could be something you enjoy or anything that helps when you begin to feel depressed. You do have choices and you can take action now to stop yourself falling deeper into depression. At the end of the day it is up to you whether you self harm. No one can tell you not to do it, but people can try to support you to not do it. Stay strong:-)

Hey, I'm Lauren, first off there's always a reason to live it just gets hidden behind the depression, you said you were doing good for 3 days?, that's a really good achievement and must of made you feel real good, If you keep going, you'll reach the goal, of a week, a month, even years and then see how good you feel then. I think you should go to your doctors and tell them about your depression or the fact your depression is coming back if you've been before, because i think you could benefit from some talking therapy, to talk you through the times when you feel like giving up,
Take care x

I already done it...I just didnt see a point in not doing it ....I feel a little better but I know at the end of the day before I go to sleep tonight or in an hour or so I'm going to feel horrible for doing it. I know I should see a doctor and I am trying but my doctor is booked all month so..I don't know I will keep trying I guess ......this is just so frustrating

I think you did really well to go 3 days without self harm. There is no point in beating yourself up about it now because it has happened and there is nothing you can do to change that. Try to pick yourself back up and try again. You should see a doctor. Even if your doctor is booked up for a month can't you book an appointment in advance? You do deserve help and there is help available if you reach out for it.
