I've struggled with depression, including suicidal thoughts, and there's been a lot of improvement for me. I've been taking anti-depressant medications prescribed by a doctor. Also I've been doing the 12 Steps of Emotions Anonymous. Part of my continued healing is that I share with others the solution. The 12 Steps of EA are:

1: We admitted we were powerless over our emotions--that our lives had become unmanageable.
2: We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3: We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4: We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5: We admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6: We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7: We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8: We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
9: We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
11: We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
And there's an additional principle of recovery: We offered forgiveness to those who had hurt us.

Emotions Anonymous, a fellowship of people recovering from emotional problems like anxiety, depression and anger.

Yasmine_16.  I am a retired counsellor for Veterans Affair Canada. I have been a counsellor there for over 20 years helping veterans with all sorts of problems.  Trust me when I tell you that there is light at the end of that very dark tunnel you seem to be in at the moment. By what you wrote you appear to be having a cute episodic clinical depressive episode. You need to see a doctor right away. Don't be afraid of what people may say or think about you for doing this. They are not you and have no right to judge you till they have walked a mile in your shoes so to speak.  By swing a doctor you are not admitting that you are a head case not being able to cope with life on your ow n. There is no stigma here.  The human brain is an organ like other organs in the body. At times it can become chemically imbalanced creating too much or too little of the chemicals the body needs to be in sync.  With the proper medication I am sure that in about a month  you will start emerging from that dark tunnel and start enjoying the light of life again. Don't make any snap judgements and act upon ending it all.  You need to love yourself enough to seek medical intervention right now.  There are very good medications on the market nowadays that will help you through this.  Life is worth living you will see this when you get the help you need. Seek help for yourself because you are special!  Is there someone you can talk to?  It helps to talk to someone about how you feel. A lot of clergy have experience dealing with people who suffer with depression. Counselling is good but only after the medical intervention has taken place. Do this now my friend.  Nothing is worth taking your life for. Trust me you can get out of the grips of depression. God bless you and know that God loves you as well.

Dear Yasmine,

I have one very simple suggestion right now: Exercise

I would like to to go to a gym as often as you can (at least three times a week). It will be even better if you can sign up for some exercise program offered there.   

Yasmine, in these tough and sleepless nights, please look at the star in the sky and do realize what you see is the past (light from the stars travel a long time to reach us). Please then tell yourself: "I am not going to live in the past. Let the pain and trouble go. Tomorrow will be a new day, a new start, a new journey ... something wonderful is waiting for me!"

You are not alone! Please talk with your doctor and call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or the SANE Helpline 1800 18 7263 or 1300 659 467 (24 Hrs).
