Holiday Depression Alone Fight Suicide

This book Saved me. DBT Therapy

HOLIDAY DEPRESSION I feel like, if this touches one person I did my job. I have been publicly speaking on mental illness. I have came to a point in my life, where not only did I overcome the odds that now I can speak out. You can't help other's until you help yourself. I had someone call me last night, wanting to harm themself. Depression is so common around the holidays. It's ok, to ask for help. Never give up. You think "why me?" "Nobody cares, nobody texts, nobody calls, or anwsers the phone." When your in that moment, stop. Focus on small things. Trust me some of you are looking at this, saying "yeah right. FML." I have been there, thinking could it get any worse?...Don't let your illness define your life. Everyday is a struggle. Fight.

@laurenelizabethws You can make more, but you have to make at least 5 to reach pay out for the month, other wise your earnings will add on with what ever you make the following month.

I've had depression since I was about 12. I'm 34 now and have taken medicine for it many years now. I think it is kind of you to offer advice here.

@chikatilo1 yes I take celexa and lamictal right now. The two together work well for me. I could benefit from a higher dose of lamictal (the mood stabilizer) but I have a bleeding disorder and it causes me to bleed if I take a higher dose.

You are absolutely right , there is a lot to do in this world ..it is only when you broaden your vision and look beyond your immediate surroundings that you realise the opportunities that are there .

Actually, if you're dealing with serious mental health issues, it's more than just OK to ask for help. It's terrific to ask for help!

Thank you for this posts. Actually im feeling the same way occasionally. But you gotta think that after a bad happening, it will only get better.
