I struggle with very severe depression on a daily basis. Rather that be just plain out being depressed, or memory loss, or no appetite, you get what I mean. I have self harmed. I have attempted suicide. Take this from someone who by the slightest interaction months ago could have been dead now. It isn't worth it.
For those of you reading this who struggle with depression:
It may feel like no one cares about you, but trust me, they do. My dad didn't know about my issues with suicide for months until after it happened and he (being a very strong person who I have never seen cry) starts crying over it. Here's my thoughts on it. Suicide doesn't take away the pain, it just passes it on to others. Think of how devastated your friends and family would be if you died. I know it wouldn't be that much devastation in your eyes because depression convinces you no one cares, but trust this from a survivor. They do.
You have so much more to experience in life. Don't end it here, in a dying flare. End it when it is supposed to end, knowing you've experienced life to it's fullest extent. That, to me, is going out with a bang.
Get the last laugh on depression. Schedule a doctor's appointment, and get on some anti-depressants. You can win. I won. Depression isn't as strong as you think it is.
If you are depressed and would like to talk to someone who struggles with depression as well, privately or not, PM me on here, or for privacy message me on Xbox. Everything we will talk about no matter if you care about privacy or not will be confidential, and I'll always be there to talk and for support. My Gamertag is Wumboist.
Please, if you feel suicidal or that you might do something bad to yourself and/or others, call a help hotline.
Here is the one I know. If you Google search suicide hotline, it will give you the phone number for your local suicide hotline. They can help. Please trust me.
