At the risk of sounding like I'm just trying to get attention, I'm very suicidal right now. This has been a year from hell and has me questioning some big life choices. I'm really not trying to get attention, if I was going to do that I'd call crisis or 911. I'm sick of hospitals and just want to find someone to talk to. I don't expect to get a response to this, I never do, but it's worth a try. At least I can get it off my chest.

    I dont have a big capacity for a conversation atm but if any response at all as any worth, I hope you can find some coping skill to soften the blow to get through this moment until the next moment where it feels at least different if not better. It makes since youd be struggling. I imagine anyone in your shoes would be.

    I have had similar feelings in the past, and things will improve. I was exhausted fighting my depression and then a helpful person asked me whether what I was doing was working. It wasn't. They reminded me that sometimes fighting back makes a situation worse e.g. being stuck in quicksand. When those feelings of despair creep back, I try and think about that quicksand image. I give myself time out from fighting, and I allow myself to be depressed for a couple of days with no guilt or apologies before reemerging for some self-care and formulating a logical plan. It's easier to make your way back to the surface when you are able to kick off from the bottom. Stay strong.
