As someone who suffers from bipolar disorder and PTSD, I can tell you all that in my own personal experience, having a million people telling you they care doesn't make any difference whatsoever.

Not to say that people who care should stay quiet, because of course that's not the case. But when it gets really bad, there isn't anything one can do to get out of the funk other than wait it out.

I use the term being "in a funk" because it's a much more palatable term than the reality of what it feels like to live through a manic episode or being borderline suicidal because you can't get your head right and everything feels wrong.

I want to repeat that I am not speaking for anyone but myself. I have no idea what Sudo is going through, but after watching his online interview, I definitely feel we have some common ground in our childhood.

I hope the best for you Sudo. Regardless of your current situation, remember it may be overwhelming, but it will soon pass and free you to enjoy yourself again.

I hate that anyone has to live through these types of situations. They're like being tortured by the absolute worst feelings possible for days on end.

HOPE! Cures all forms of depression. My Mentor once asked a group of Vets in a group therapy session "if I were to give you each as much money as you would ever need, how many of you think your problems would persist?" Not a hand went up in the room of about 20. Of course this is an over simplification and doesn't deal with their traumas but it illustrates the concept of HOPE as a cure.

It's my hope that anyone suffering from any mental illness can find something to have faith in and to focus on it during tough times. For me that's Jesus and the Bible but I do understand the difficulty in believing having battled my own demons.

And just for me and not trying to counter anyone, it helps me to know that there are others who no only care but understand. Reaching out to someone in need has helped me not only help others but selfishly help myself in the process.

So I ask at least in my case, that should I express a negative mental attitude in these forums, those who care please express positive support and loving inspiration to help me. Thank you.
No matter how many times you say the wrong thing, it will NEVER be right.

If I'm not responding to you? It's because you're a TROLL!
