musician Posted July 31, 2008 Report Share Posted July 31, 2008 Here's my situation. I just turned 25 and I lost my first job as a teacher in May. Part of the reason I lost my job was because there would be days when I would have episodes where I was so depressed I couldn't handle my job. I've been having episodes like this since I was in high school. These episodes seem to be getting worse. There have been numerous times when I have thought about (not attempted) suicide. I'm afraid that someday I actually will attempt suicde. The last episode I had, I actually had this urge to cut myself. I've seen two different counselors. I stopped seeing both of them because I felt like I was paying money for something that just wasn't helping at all. No one has diagnosed me with anything. My question is, what can I do about this? I really need help but I feel like every person I go to either doesn't know what to do about it or basically just tells me that I need to think positive thoughts.
