i really hope you mean that your problems are getting sorted out. I want you to be safe.
I agree with you. People mourn the loss of someone who died from a physical illness because it wasn’t their fault. it’s not someone’s fault that they have a mental illness either.
Yeah I can’t seem to come to term with that phrase. Like I get that sometimes you’re not thinking with other people’s interest first with suicide but mental illness isn’t about other people. It’s about what’s going on inside your own head. Suicide shows how unhappy someone was, not how much they cared about themselves.
I think if you do them for the sole purpose of hurting yourself then it is self harm (as in cutting, bruising, hair pulling, not eating, binge eating ect.) However I think it would fall into another category because not everyone does it specifically to hurt themselves but instead does it for the high that comes with it. Personally, I don’t do these things so I don’t know what the mindset of people is that do drugs but I do know people who have/do do these and they seem to always be looking for an escape or maybe impress someone. I know that when my depression was really bad a couple years ago I turned to alchohol and that was to try and numb the pain. Luckily I have learned from my own personal experience and others not to do that and try to remain in control of myself at all times. I hope this answered your question well. Thanx.
sometimes when we’re depressed we feel very empty. We feel like we’ve lost a piece of ourselves, our personality, our happiness. We feel sad all the time and we wan’t to cry but we’re not strong enough or we feel like this constantly but can’t go around crying 24/7 and we’ve just gotten used to it. Sometimes we’re so numb that tears just don’t come out even though you might need that release. And this numbness and this emptiness means that we don’t see the point in doing things for fun anymore. We can’t stop thinking about how sad we are and so we don’t want to go out and do things because we don’t know what to do with ourselves. I’m sorry. I know it’s tough right now. You’re tired and you don’t know why you’re so sad all the time. But we’ll get through this, ok? We can do this, you’ll find yourself again and you’ll be happy. Love you.
