I once heard this :

If there is at least one person who will cry at your funeral, then it is not worth dying.

Then I have to add this as well : We all have a death wish, but we all think suicide is extreme. When our moods take a swing, we think of death first and foremost. But consider this - Understanding the implication that death itself is almost no longer mysterious or frightening to us should make you hold on to what remaining life you have more tightly.

Excerpts from The Last Samurai

"You do not fear death...but sometimes you wish for it?"

"...To taste life in every breath, every cup of tea, every life we take...That - is Bushido."

In a sense, we are all olden age Samurai, feeling out of place in this modern world which no longer requires those who do not fear death, but have a loyalty to those whom we seek to protect.

So live for those who love you, and for those whom you love.

Plus, I sincerely hope you don't try anything funny after this, or I might just feel bad about it and get hit into another DP trance.

Hey Uni-g

I read all the stuff on your website and i dont know if this will be of any help. I have a friend who suffered a constant agonising tension headache for 4 weeks, he to also had and has ever since had tight and tense neck muscle problems. With medication the tension headache subsided and was apparently caused by stress & anxiety. The neck/nerve problems remain. Anyway on your website you mention acupuncture, it was the only thing that gave him relief, wondering if you've tried it (you probably have, looks like you've tried eveything else)

Also with your diet change it's normal to get the flu and feel a little weird when you first change. Are you on a Blood type diet? Are you eating organic only?

As for why you should keep living...........how about because you live in a beautiful world that you love, your freinds and loved ones are there for you, you dont seem like a quiter to me, you're adventrous and determined. You just need to dig deep in this difficult time and find the strength and courage you know you have. Take it day by day and set small goals and acheive them. Looking at your entire future at once is not the way to go.

Oh yeah theres another reason why you should keep on living.......there's a puppy out there somewhere just waiting to love you and to be loved by you.

Hope I helped, even a little. Keep fighting

Because whatever you're going through is TEMPORARY and people in your life love you whether or not you realize it =). Hang in there, you can do this.

Because so many people's lives will be ruined if you are not here!

Trust me, I've thought about "not being here anymore". But in the long run, it's not even worth it.

Hang in there.

although ive never felt physically depressed to the point that i hear about some people,i always feel like im trapped in this bubble,and everyday it scares the crap out of me,but then sometimes i just think what it would be like to not hear a beautiful piece of music ever again
to not ever read a good book
to never see a great film
to never again eat your favourite meal

its the simple stuff i think of,i wish i could add to that list

to never go to a foreign country again
to never wake up with my partner again

and looking at your website it seems that going on vacation isnt a problem so hopefully you can just think of the simple things that you would miss out on

Uni,

You should keep living just in case one day something great happens that makes all the suffering worth it.

I want to say something really positive, but im not quite sure to say. All i know is that, you gotta try to keep going because there is a good chance that you can get better and that you don't have to live your whole life feeling like you do. And your pretty hot lol

* Hugs*
