      Hey Tony,

      Like Scap3g0at, I also saw your comment of Geoff page.

      Just keep taking it one day at a time I don't know what your beliefs are, but mine being Christian is that God is looking out for you even when it doesn't feel like it. I've had a few friends try to commit suicide, thankfully they failed, and now a few months later they are doing better having realized just how many people have been around them the whole time ready to help or just be there, whatever they needed.

      Life is tough, sometimes it kicks your ass until you can't feel the pain anymore. It feels bad, sometimes we feel bad and don't know why. Maybe it is a chemical imbalance or the sum of a bunch of little things we didn't know were bothering us.

      Regardless of how crazy the reason might seem every reason for you feeling depressed is legitimate and you owe it to yourself to talk to others about it. Suicide is never the answer; you'll only hurt yourself and pass on the depression to others.

      I hope you can keep moving forward and I'd like you to keep living as long as you can. If things have been so bad then you might as well stick around to enjoy the good times as well.

      I will leave you with a few verses that I find helpful to remember.

      Jeremiah 29:11-13
      11 For I know the plans I have for you,†declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

      Matthew 6:25-34
      25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?

      28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

      Tony-

      I saw your comment on Geoff's page and I just want to say hang on! I dealt with depression for a long time, since i was about 13 yrs old. I'm a manic depressive, which means I'm really happy or really depressed. It took awhile to recognize it. The most useful thing that I heard at the time was that my depression was due to a chemical in-balance. It's just some strange genetic thing. So the depression I was feeling wasn't a reaction to who I was or what I was doing. It helped me create that barrier so I could look at how was reacting to certain things. It's gotten better over time but even at the age of 31 I still have days where I tell my wife 'I'm just going to be in a bad mood today. But I want you to know it isn't because of you.'

      What I'm trying to say is, before you react to the feeling of being depressed ask yourself why you're feeling this way.

      I also want you to know that you should talk to someone. Anyone. I belong to the Vineyard Church and I highly recommend it. I was raised Catholic but with Vineyard they took the establishment out of my faith.

      I don't know what your religious beliefs but I want you to know that I'll be praying for you. That even though I've never seen you or talked to you, that I love you. I recognize the pain and emptiness, I've been there before. I know how to get out. It's start by talking to someone.

      Good luck and God Bless.
