    Right now, I'm sad, maybe it's a side effect of the boredom, I have nothing to do right now. But I just feel a little bit like I shouldn't be here, then the other half of me comes in and says " You stupid selfish idiot, if you take your life you're affecting more people than you know! You have everything to live for, you medical miracle"! Then I cheer up, I never was going to kill myself, but I was sad. but does any else ever feel like it's "too much"? Even just for a second?

    Eh, all the time.

    But, as you said. Don't take life for granted. You never know what destiny has for you.

    Or the Gurren Lagann approach.

    Take life? Ordinary plain life. Drill a hole through that bitch, and trancend the heavens.

    I guarantee you nearly everyone no matter how they appear on the outside has asked similar questions to you and has felt at least bit like you do now at some times in there life. Its perfectly ok to feel like you do now, the important thing is if you ever really do feel suicidal you talk to someone about how you feel, even if its just somewhere like here, its really important you do.

    You didn't say much about your life and what has lead you to feel so bored, maybe you could tell us more to help us understand?

    If you have way too much spare time and watching tv,dvd's and the internet aren't fulfilling you maybe you could use this time to help people who are desperate and in need, there are charities who are desperate for volunteers and will train you to do things I bet you thought you were not capable of. This worked for me but I understand that it might not be for everyone

    I understand you are questioning whether you are significant at the moment but you could have loads to offer this world

    Everyone comes to a point where one feels this way. The trick is to cherish the things you have and not what you have not. And you can always try to change things.

    Most of us, if not all of us, question at one point or another if our lives are worth the trouble. No matter how bad or how good our lives may be, we can count on having to deal with pain and sadness. The important thing to remember is that we can also count on having moments of pleasure and joy. Think back to those moments of pleasure and joy that you have experienced. Remember how they smelled, tasted, sounded, looked and felt. Then ask yourself, isn't the hope that I will have more moments of pleasure and joy worth the moments of pain and sadness? For me, the answer is always a resounding yes!

    I've been feeling this way the past few months. I somehow caused my stomach tons of damage by eating something I shouldn't have. Just lasagna, but apparently all of the sudden tomato sauce is deadly to me? Now, all the medicines I'm on, all the side effects, all the pain, I can't eat ANYTHING, not even drink plain warm water without being in pain. It's a chore for me to be alive. I just keep thinking if my mom never made it, or if I wasn't home that day, none of this would have happened. All the doctor's visits , all the testing, it's too much.

    Hugs to you too!

    I know it's not the same, but when I was younger (read 18 and very vain) I followed the current fad for the "diet coke" diet. Basically, the diet was simple: everytime you felt hungry, you drink diet coke (this was before coke zero). Long story short, I burnt away my stomach lining :(  Man, I have never experienced such pain and discomfort in my life. I had to drink a white substance to coat my stomach and for about 6 months while my lining regenerated all I could eat was pretty that highly processed white food (white bread, plain pasta etc). I would actually shake and feel physically ill when I thought of eating or drinking, the pain was so bad. So huge, huge hugs!

    I do all the time. I lost my mom to cancer this year and for the first month or so after her death I was thinking seriously about suicide. She was the only person I was really close to. I got better for the most part, but every now and then I feel like I just want to give up. It doesn't help that I already suffered from severe depression before all this.

    It's just, I have everything to live for because I'm lucky to be alive, I had Bacterial Meningitus when I was about 6, and you could say that I beat it to death with my bare hands and tore out it's heart. Now I'm 13, I have straight A's, a black belt in Taekwondo, a beautiful and amazing girlfriend, wonderful friends, and my classmates say I'm an amazing author, I just sometimes don't feel like I'm doing enough, usually it's on saturday nights when I'm either playing TF2, Minecraft, watching Peaugh's reviews, or reading. I think I may be Bipolar because almost everyone in my dad's family is, and I show a lot of the signs... Usually I'm the most happy-go-lucky guy I know, but sometimes I just feel..... empty.

    It'll be over before you know it, and I sure as hell know I don't want to have any regrets when the end comes.

    Take your pain & use it to fuel you in positive ways. As crude as it sounds, I honestly think its the best thing we can do at times like these, almost regardless of the source.

    i have 2 fistulas in my arms (both dead and useless.)
    i have 2 grafts in my arms (1 was just put in last tuesday, the other died in january.)
    i am on my 4th chest catheter.

    at random times i lose my sight for a week, up to about a month, waiting for it to clear.

    i spend anywhere from 6-10 hours a day, 3x a week in a clinic getting my blood cleansed, removing excess fluid.

    i have had so many surgeries to fix or repair my grafts, fistulas and catheters that the OR staff know me by name and sight.

    but i am still here. why? i got shit to do. i made promises and i intend to keep them.
    i promised friends i wouldn't give up.
    i promised my dad i'd finish what i started (college).
    I promised my nieces that i would see them graduate.


    life is worth it, if you have a plan or make plans.

    just sitting around bored, that's when it isn't worth it.
    still, boredom can be cured. so fix that.

    Hang in there. The world might end next week anyway, if you listen to the Mayans. So there's that.

    Oh yeah you betcha.....in fact had to deal with that tonight with another bout with a low mood that sent my old brain into it after having another accurate accounting session around here of keeping up with the bills and expenses I'm responsible for....

    Good thing Is my mind snaps back after it hits the low mark and I'm fairly leveled out right now.....just got to get to work [Got way too much stuff in this collection here and logic would dictate getting rid of a good portion of it since it's just taking up room!] Though the "it's not worth it" I usually grapple with that and "What's the point" during these moods.

    Great thing I've got plans [And large ones I gotta work down to useable levels] and there's no way those plans will be achieved if this old brain decides to hit the self destruct.

    Funny thing is what triggers these low moods is money and it usually takes one half of the brain slapping the other half with some good hard logic.

    not to sound like an insensitive jerk, but this seems like just another seeking pity/attention thread just a little bit. :/


    I've had a pretty hellacious life growing up: abused (physically, mentally, sexually), abandoned, almost killed various times by bullies and other adults growing up. I grew up in the system all my young life in foster care, Group homes, and mental health facilities, no parents, no family, no friends.

    I have severe mental health issues, I'm non-employable anywhere, have no job, no car and I can go on and on and on.
    I have plenty of reasons to end it all and blah blah blah. Thing is i decided ever since I was a young boy that nothing and
    nobody will ever break me into that kind of depression, not even me.

    I love breathing, seeing, feeling, hearing, and even smelling the world all around me.

    Sure, it's got it's problems. But, I'd rather be alive and kicking, than be dead and ceasing to exist, and since i don't believe in ghosts or any sort of afterlife, why the hell would I be stupid enough to die?

    People need a whole lot more common sense.

    Threads like this really piss me off. Yet i can't help but post in them. :lol

    I feel like this sometimes. But then I think "Don't take life so seriously, no one gets out anyway".
