I feel the need to really say thank you to all of you that have been supportive to me over the last few weeks.
Life has been really tough, especially lately.  In a moment of pure desperation I turned to the net to find help on depression.  I felt that ending my life was one of my only options left.  I was truly worn out with the fight and had run out of steam.  I found the forum that day and signed up after reading many of the posts.  I realised for the first time that I really wasn't alone.
I don't feel in a position to offer advice while I am so screwed up mentally, so sorry If I have not offered back the same level of support you have given.  One day I am sure I will.
Your advice is helping, it is so varied that I can pull bits from one and bits from another and make something out of it that works for me, or is at least helping me move forward.  Writing it all down is a good one, it is making me focus on the big and the small, but most of all it is making me be honest with myself.  I don't have a way out of all this at the moment, and maybe I never will but you have all helped me realise that it's ok, just get through the day or the week, whichever your struggling with.
I don't have any friends (whole differnt story!), but you have all been exceptional in helping me stay grounded and becasue of you all I am back trying to fight the fight.
Thank you just doesn't do justice to how I feel, but I just wanted to say it anyway. So THANK YOU.
Wishing you all well.

Hugs to you Wizzer. I know exactly what you are talking about I was in total desperation when I found these boards. I was so ready to end it and be done. As much as my husband loves me, he still doesn't know what all this is really like, so it was so helpful to find people who knew exactly what I was feeling and how scared I was.
The advice I have gotten here has been so helpful, I have been able to open up to my husband more, talk to my doctor more too. I still have steps I need to take, but I'm taking it day by day
You have been a help to me Wizzer, and I thank you.

I am so glad that this forum has been of such great help.  I dont often start threads but just responding to everyone and helping in any small way pulls me through my days.  This forum (HW) has been wonderful for a lot of people and I dont think it gets the props it deserves.
But, I am glad that you do know wizzer that your not alone and do have friends here :-)

Hi Wizzer - what a beautiful expression of gratitude. I too found HW during a very dark time. I happened to stumble across it during one of my endless searches on MIGRAINE but quickly found a home here in the Depression and Anxiety forums. Thank you for being candid about your feelings to end it. I had those feelings too. What I've noticed for me is that when I use my natural gifts as an "encourager" and I'm writing a response to someone else, I realize that I need to do the things that I am writing. The answers are within me but this forum has been a catalyst for them. I pray that you continue to do well, to make friends and to go from "surviving" to "thriving." Take care.
