Everything hurts but I still feel numb Eeyore 17/11/14(Tue)06:33 No. 5627 ID: 2b2bcd

I don't know where else to go. I don't trust people to help me and I'm not even sure If I want any.

Every day I continue living just hurts more than the last and I find it increasingly more difficult to push myself to keep going.

The only thing keeping alive anymore is the one person who I feel has ever cared about me and she's not going to live much longer. After she's gone I'm scared of what I'll become or what I'll do.

I don't mean to bitch and put my problems on anyone but please just give me some advise. At least an effective way to end it if nothing else. That's all I ask.

You said the problem yourself.

>I don't trust people to help me, and I might want to be helped.

It will feel considerably better to believe there is help, even if that help never arrives. Faith in a positive outcome is enough to push through hardship until things get better, even if a direct form of assistance never arrives.

>I'm scared of what I'll become, or what I'll do, once this person close to me dies.
That is still up to you. Trust me. Forget all of that "there is no free will" crap. Try to be open-minded. Imagine all of the possibilities that life will bring once you push through the depression and grief. You can be a happier, healthier person again.

People who are open to help, and change, pull through states of severe depression a vast majority of the time. In the lower to moderate states of depression, it is very possible to work towards feeling better.

Your state of depression is separate from this person passing. You will have to combat this depression either way. A person in a more positive mental state can take feelings like anger or loneliness and convert them into productivity. Obviously, productivity can be put towards purposeful ends, such as finding another caring friend.

There is going to be grief in life no matter what you do. Just do the right thing and take life as it comes. We usually imagine our reactions to future events as stronger than they really are. Then, especially if we spend a lot of time pondering alone, we report feeling numb.

This post is by no means an attempt to minimize what you are going through, it is just some well-intentioned advice.

Grief can be a very serious condition, and so seeing a counselor might be a good idea. In today's world, people *are* often too busy and estranged to help each other, so professional counseling is a modern solution to that problem. In a group setting, too, it is possible to meet people who have experience with this exact problem.

If the counseling center is funded by insurance, and tries to offer you drugs, try to avoid their attempts. That is, unless you feel you are in real danger, in which case the harm caused by medication might almost be excusable.

Of course, this is all very general advice. We need to change our own lives, and to create our own bonds. Strangers can only help so much, so try not to be a stranger. An interaction such a good hug, or doing a small favor for someone, is enough to make any painful moment tolerable. Humans are not meant to be alone. People exist for each other's benefit.

And that suicide shit is whack, B. If you really value being morbid, hang around this world some more. I promise something cool will happen.
