Heard a good expression which has stuck in my head over the past few days;

'suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems'
Who can say that everybody's problems are always temporary? Not necessarily the case.

Sidney for the vast majority of people who attempt to or actually commit suicide the problems generally are temporary and have a solution. It is not the problem that pushes people to commit suicide but their inability to deal with the problem and find solutions. They maybe very serious problems but bar being terminally ill all problems can be solved. People with depression need more help than they are getting and I personally believe that we are not even scratching the surface here in Ireland. We need to have a serious look at who we are and how we cope with issues.

No matter what the problem, it is a more temporary condition than the solution suicide provides.

It's easy for you lads to call it temporary but in truth you don't know the real situation.

To Robin Williams, after battling it for so many years, he came to believe that it was the relief from depression that was temporary. Rightly or wrongly that's the way he felt.

R.I.P. Robin, you fought a good fight.

I am not saying it is temporary, I am simply saying it is MORE temporary than suicide - which is absolutely permanent.

Tread carefully here....
What you say makes perfect sense to any rational individual but anyone suffering from clinical depression has a warped sense of reality.
What BC1 wrote above is well worth repeating here:

"It is not the problem that pushes people to commit suicide but their inability to deal with the problem and find solutions."

There, short and succinct, lies the kernel of the problem.
It's somewhat like the old conundrum, which came first, the chicken or the egg?
To solve the problem, the individual needs to have the ability to reason logically but if he or she were able to do that, the problem wouldn't have arisen in the first place.

What about paranoia? I sometimes feel paranoid about how I'm perceived by those nearest and dearest to me. Then I feel bad that I'm useless and want it all to end. This probably is 'only me' who experiences it.

I would think if you can rely on anyone it would be those 'nearest and dearest' to you. Your next line moves into the territory of the rest rest of the thread. There have been some great posts here, and I certainly won't go giving advice on the subject, but have a look back through and you'll definitely find something for you. Best of luck Farr.

It's not only you who feels it. That's the only thing of which I'm certain. In fact I'd say there are fewer people who haven't felt this than there are who have.

Excellent article in today's Examiner explaining how our brains play tricks with us when romantic relationships break down and why it's so difficult to deal with. Very brave of this fella to write this, he talks about his own personal experience.

Not to be alarmist, but hearing voices indicated Schizophrenia?

if he is hearing voices he needs medication a lot stronger than prozec. its indicative of a psychotic illness which will not be treated properly with antidepressants.
