    I've been there and done that. I also spent a couple months this year debating about mental health care. The fear of being stigmatized as a 'looney' stops many people from seeking treatment for depression. Look at it like this, though... There are only a few people that ever need to know. You, your parents, and your shrink. The shrink is sworn to secrecy - he can't tell anyone about your condition. Nobody has to know unless you tell them. That can help, when you're ready for it, but you won't be called a lunatic...nobody will know...
    Away.

    People need to understnd that mental health care is there for
    everybody, not just the sick. Healthy people in the know will
    most likely visit a shrink sooner than someone who is sick.
    Why? Prevention. Cure. Advice. Assurance. Many good reasaons
    to see your doctor without worrying or caring what other ignorant
    people might think or say. Look out for number one, baby.
    Nobody's going to do it for you. Feeling good about yourself is just around the corner for those willing to walk that far.
    No. Wait. Don't hang up!

    This is America calling!

    To throw in another comment...

    suicide is a very permanent solution to a temporary problem. Think about that.
    Away.

    Perhaps this will make you feel a little better, if you allow it:

    We all feel useless at times. It is how we deal with the challenges we face which makes us who we are.

    Screw it, I'm just going to commit suicide or something.

    I don't belong anywhere, and people hate me.

    I'll never amount to $$$$, so it's a huge waste of time.

    Time for me to sound like a total jerk.

    Haven't you said that before? And why did you bump a five month old thread to say it again?

    reaching out for help on the internet is perhaps a bad idea

    Well, help is fine. But when a person threatens to commit suicide then there really isn't anything that we can do. Taking your own life is a rather personal option, one that I don't want anything to do with. It's your own choice Krak. The world will spin without you, and eventually your body will rot right back in to it - if that makes you feel at all more comfortable with the idea.
