>>508429>two year battle with depression
I've always thought I've been depressed for pretty much my entire life, but now I wonder if I'm really "depressed" or not. I have a clean record of exactly zero suicide attempts, but then again I think that my profound nihilism would prevent me from doing anything like that, anyway.
I'll never understand what makes people hurt themselves, slit their wrists and even go all the way and kill themselves. How can your life be so incredibly miserable that suicide seems like a viable option? Maybe they're Christians who believe they'll be sent to paradise (but then again, doesn't Christianity say that persons committing suicide will be sent to hell?).
I don't know that guy, but seeing someone take his life is always a sad thing to see. It makes me think of people like Robin Williams.
