I haven't. certainly not in the suicidal sense. I know that I've been hurt so bad that I thought dying would probably be easier, but I never wanted to die. I've never wanted to die. I love life, I love that everything is different and there are so many different things to explore, learn and do. I would be far more unhappy to end my life than to stick through a really rough patch.
I'm not saying other people who feel those things can't make it through a bad patch - I've not been through things some people have, and I'm a different person who handles things differently anyways. And I'm also not saying I don't understand people who have depression, I know a lot of people with depression and I understand (as well as can be without having it myself), but I am just not inclined that way. Perhaps I have a predisposition to optimism (too much dissertation coming through now).
I have to admit that I find this to be a little bit of a peculiar prompt. I know we're supposed to be getting deep in our posts, but it's day 5 and that would be a heavy topic if somebody had something they felt like they should discuss. Perhaps I'm thinking too much, but I hope everyone only discuss' what they're comfortable sharing.
