    Right Now - The Hurt Is Just Too Much

    I currently want to slit my wrists and bleed out so I never have to wake up to this horrible life ever again. The thought of never having to be awake again excites me and makes me feel warm and relaxed all at the same time, because I would finally be at peace. I am tired of being...

    Hi Everyone, I'm 21 years old and have suffered from depression and anxiety for several years. It's strange - some days I feel as though I have found the answer and the end to my inner conflict, but many days I just don't feel like it's worth it to try. Sure there are people...

    I feel like my life is a curse.

    Life became too much for me to handle. I took 20 Doxepin (a sleep/anxiety pill) and pleaded that God finally take me home and apologized to God for doing what I did. I hoped he showed compassion as I slipped away and would save me. I don't remember too much after that. I...
