To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ‘t is nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep:
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to,–‘t is a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there ‘s the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there ‘s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would fardels 13 bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover’d country from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.

Hello. I'm new here...
I'm 15, and have been cutting myself since I was 13. I was busted about a month ago, just before I turned fifteen. My mom was pissed, but my dad and his family supported me. I wrote out my suicide letters last night, but hope I don't ever have to send them, because as much as I want to cease existing, I don't want to kill myself. I'd rather get killed in a car accident or something.
I'm depressed, and have bad anxiety. I broke a plastic pencil sharpener to get the blade, and have been using that since my scissors and razor blade was taken away.
I love My Chemical Romance (don't you dare say the thing), Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, Twenty Øne Piløts, and Black Veil Brides. I'm trying out a lot of other bands in the same genres.
I also love the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson books.
I stumbled upon this site while looking for some people to talk to. I'm kind of... having one of those days/one of those moments where everything feels out of place and not right. It's hard to describe.
I... don't really know how to format this? I'm in New York right now, upstate and enjoying it a bit. I'm still working through school - I'm studying about animals which is pretty nice. I like to draw and I like books on animal behavior. I am 23 years old, and have been dealing with depression since I was 13 years old, and anxiety since I was... well since I was born really. Not even as a joke. I remember at 2 years old when I was still in a crib - my mother put a plastic covering on the doorknob which prevented me from going out into the house (and well, maybe eating something toxic or falling or something). I got so scared that I cried to the point of vomiting. I've always been like that. Uh, except less crying and less vomiting. But the same level of sensitivity to stress. It's gotten better, but it's still a rough ride. I'm working with several therapists and I'm on medication, but sometimes I just need to talk to someone late at night. And well, most of my therapists aren't awake and neither are my friends.
I've tried to commit suicide three times. I self harmed a lot in highschool. I stopped self harming for a few years, but I relapse every so often. Usually when I'm feeling out of place and severely dissociated. I'm trying to reach out more when I'm feeling like this. I've never talked to anyone else who has self-harmed. I'd like to learn how other people experience it, and how they've managed to cope.
Also I really hope I posted this in the right forum. I'm terrible with stuff like this.
