Hey, so I see I upset some people with my views. I was told that I was dismissing their pain. That definitely wasn't my intention.

I was aiming to shed hope on this condition. I've had it too. The worst of the worst. Thinking it would never get better. This board was my main hobby back then.

I didn't recover by any quick fix. I don't believe in those. It takes time. It took for me years of therapy and other things to turn things around.

My intention wasn't to be harsh, but to say that there is hope no matter how bad you feel. This is a curable condition and it does not have to be forever.

It is complex and everyone's recovery is different, but it can be done.

Apologies to those I offended.

I understand your analogy. Whatever path you choose to recover, just know that you CAN recover. It's SO curable. It just is so terrible that someone would end their life before the miracle happens. And when you recover you'll realize just how possible recovery is.
Chicane- point taken. :)

Hopingcat- I took mess to help ease symptoms, but I don't think meds cure you. I think it takes a lot of work in terms of changing yourself (therapy, facing fears, etc.)
Thanks :) but I already clarified that point above.

I'm not trying to make a generalization...there are many individual paths to recovery, but hope is more likely than not. Is that a generalization?
...and I'm not totally sure if I'm's based not on my own experience but the general trend I've seen with many who have had success.

If that comes off as hurtful, I'm sorry.
Ok, if that's how you view it, you may be right then.
