Please don't kill yourself. Depression is a disease and is not your fault. If you need help, find a counselor or call the national suicide hotline. PLEASE. You are an amazing person and the world would be a worse place without you.

20 out of 20 questions right, should I continue living? I dont want to, so why should I? There is no point in life. Your birthed into this horrible world then you play with imaginary toys and play dress up, then you start school and learn 🕊. You start dating and then break up with multiple people. Then you graduate and get a job. Then you get married, have kids and then your kids have kids and you spoil them all the time. Then you die with your lover if you make it. YOU ALWAYS DIE IN THE END.

My result came out as depression. My both parents are late. Am a married mad...I have been depressed and isolated for over 7 all started as a marriage stress and family stress when my both parents became sick ..the challenges of taking care of them along with the marriage stress and my two lovely children at that time got me deeper into depression... with all of the trouble and lack of mental coordination...I decided not to have more children but to take care of the two lovely boys God already gave wife was completely aware of my all of this...she came up insisting she wants another child a baby girl...and for me having more children...I will definitely die of a diabetic and i also have anger wife being aware that am suffering from depression and already stressed out with life... began to make life more miserable at home...she also had complained to a the end of the day everything was turned into a spiritual thing that I have a spiritual wife that is making me not to want more children...I made my stand known to the pastor that this is not all about having more children...I made it clear to the pastor and my wife that the two boys we already have...we don't have peace in our marriage...we find it hard to manage our marriage stress and being there at all times for the ones we already wife refused and kept fighting... Each time we have💗I made sure I use the withdrawal became a big fight to the point of holding me down to 💗 inside of her...I kept on explaining to her that we don't need this now... there's lots of challenges in our home...we don't have a house made...we cannot cope...she fought and insisted until she became pregnant...I don't know how it happened..but it was at the time my mother died...she took advantage of when my mother died. I started abusing alcohol..I was hopeless and miserable...and at that time of my severe confusion and depression she took advantage and got pregnant and finally gave birth to a baby girl....the whole marriage stress and challenges we face is still there even worse...I love my children...and looking at diabetic.. am still very mental health is worse... waking up everyday as a depressed person whom have also been isolated and lost contact s with friends...I wake up everyday very terrified that I have another new innocent life brought into this world that needs my attention and terrifies me because my mental health is wosser than ever.. nothing interest me... depression has made me loose sense of living... I blame my wife for adding more to my misery...I love my daughter ketandu with everything in my depressed and can't help myself's against my wish to bring in another child into this world in this mental state that I am... nothing interest me..this is Christmas..I don't even know how it feels...I just locked up myself in my room... though I provided my best for the family including their outing.. gave my wife money to go out with the kids...I am not in the mood for Christmas or any celebration..I feel so depressed and it has doubled having another child in this my isolated miserable life... All thanks to my wife for succeeding in adding More into my miserable life of depression.

I want help , but nobodybelieves that I could need help . My mother only know the half of the abuse and I can't tell her all . I want to be happy again . The most people in my family have problems with which they have to deal every day . I don't know ..... Sometimes I'm thinking , that they don't wanna see my problems ...
When someone ask me questions, like : ''How are you ?''
I always smile and say :
'' I'm fine and you? ''

hi, i know you're skimming though this. my parents have been divorced since i was 4 and i've cut and made white lies about it. i make suicide "jokes" to my 2 friends to hide the pain and reality. i've lost sleep and i've had no will to do anything or go anywhere. i cry but try to deny because i feel weak. helpless. useless. if i reach out everyone will just say it's no big deal. i've tried to talk to people and they haven't listened. my dad abuses and neglects me and neither parents are barely ever around anymore. i hallucinate and just cripple inside.
