    I Will Not Give Up On Life

    Depression is an anchor that I drag with me.  I've been so down at times that frankly I thought about going up into the mountains and never coming out.  At one point, I created a 'kill kit' to help fulfill the only out that I thought I had. Loosing a woman I loved to...

    Life Is a Gift

    Up until recently I felt life couldn't possibly be as good as it is now. I'm starting to get over my depression and actually enjoy life for the first time in almost 11 years. The majority of my life has been spent wondering the reason for my existence and what good I could...

    For many years, I have struggled with deprssion and have had many suicidal thoughts. I have not done anything about those although I do get tempted to often. I have said to myself many times and I will say it again: "Suicide is out of the question for me".

    Of Course Not!

    I can't give up now. It's not in my character. If I were to just abruptly give up then what would have been the point of it all. The facing others I have hurt. taking responsibility for my actions. Getting past the pain I have endured. Being able to look people straight on after...

    Every time I want to give up I look back to how

    far I came. At times I think it's not worth staying strong, but something always proves to me different. I didn't come this far to just give up and forget about everything. Last year I had a awful life, and looking at how much it all changed when I decided to do something about...
