Greetings and Welcome Everybody. This is where I'll be posting as a Overcoming Depression, Suicidal Thoughts, & Ideations: w/a Quest for Living Group, here on LifeForce Community.
When I figure out how to form a group here I'll make it more formal.
So glad to have your visit this is the place to come if you or a friend or loved one is having or has had trouble with depression, including suicide thoughts, suicide ideation, and other mental health issues. Of course please consult your healthcare professional when in a severe or crisis mode. As I'm not a doctor, nor do I or can I diagnose or treat the human condition known as mental health issues.
However, I have dealt with family mental health issues for some 60 years and I personally dealt with severe depression with suicide ideation and I over came that after forty years of struggle. I am an overcomer. I now feel it is my mission to help others in similar situations. It is most important to let you know if you or a loved is struggling with depression (it does not mean you would have to go some 40 years as I did. I am sure my quest was so long indeed, so I could help others because the seriousness of a deep depression it is so crucial, even if it is in a moment or weeks or months and sometimes years, we can reach out and help a brother or sister when they are down. I also have many years of dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder due to all the tragedies I've had in my life. Having others know and understand what it's like dealing with PTSD is very helpful, I've been there and done that and it matters not if you are a soldier, emergency medial worker, or just a ordinary soldier of getting through this world. PTSD sucks, there is no better word for it. So I'll be posting on that here too.
I will post things to help one look in a new direction, things to help one "Just Hold On," while going through a struggle and I'll share the tools I discovered along the way that helped me insure I was an overcomer, the things that helped me now: work within my own gifts & talents, to what I know and acknowledge as "walking in my anointing." I want to share my journey and knowledge on this often difficult subject. That is often ignored, shunned and kept quiet. I made it and if I did that means others can too. I do this in my flavor and through my gifts, talents, and knowledge (everyone is different so some may not float their boat the way I do), that's okay. Everyone responds in their own way, as they like to do things. I yearn to help those that my tone resonates with. I believe we should be people helping people. I love the idea of community for the good of the human race and I feel I can contribute here slowly over a long period of time, to help my fellow man who has to live with mental health issues, especially depression and the like.
Please you are welcome to post but please be respectful as this is a tender subject in so many ways. If you are in a crisis, please call 911 for help, thank you.
