I've been there for a lot of friends, visited people in the hospital after attempted Tylenol suicide talked him through rough times, I have given friends a place to live multiple times (often left me at a disadvantage and used), currently had to take a stand and kick out my friend from my house because what i thought was giving him a home to save money and get him back in school meant he had more money to fuel his alcoholism. I gave a kid a house for a year after getting kicked out of his foster house when he aged out because he didn't want to leave the county where he had the only people he knew in life giving him enough time to get into college and get housing provided by the state for his time in college now he is doing great, I've worked in soup kitchens, I've given a lot of strangers rides across town, i donate 20 dollars out of every paycheck to charities in my area.

when i was 13 i witnessed a double homicide suicide with three of my closest friends, sense then i have been pretty mentally fucked up. sometimes i cry randomly to this day and its been ten years. i had to watch my closest friends bleed out in-front of me. It was horrible, get shaky at the thought of it and I'm kind of water atm. I had no help, we all suffered from bullying. I could not tell you how many times i got beaten growing up, one time i got jumped in the bathroom at school when i was alone and the kids beat me, took away my clothes, cut of huge chunks of my hair and gave me swirlys till i was puking. i went to school in panama so it wasn't like it is here in the U.S, i went to highschool in the u.s but my middleschool life was a hell i won't ever forget. my brother would beat me savagely whenever i made it home so i had spent a lot of time on the streets i would wander for no reason other then to not be anywhere i was supposed too and my parents worked almost 24/7. my mom would leave for work in the morning and come back at 3 in the morning. no one could help me. so i guess that drives me to help anyone i can, because i know the feeling all too well of being helpless. it sucks, i wouldn't wish my life on anyone. but i came out stronger, i can outrun most people, i can take a severe beating like a champ, i can even take being publicly ridiculed in stride. But don't you dare make fun of the people i care about, don't you dare make fun of someone in front of me because i will not stand for it. and if you can help someone you just should no matter how hard it may seem it is probably harder for the other person. not trying to go on a rant here just figured id spare my 2 cents.

Now that y'all have some context, lately i've had this feeling in my gut. A voice in my head. Call it what you want. Sometimes I stop and think "I want to die". I have no idea why, but I get that really strong feeling of dread and it just weighs me down. It's like I just died inside and I kinda shut down.

Now before this gets dramatic, I don't have any intent on actually killing myself. The point is i'm thinking/feeling something I can't control, and while that isn't a first, it's been a long time since its ever been this bad and honestly it was never like this. Basically i'm freaking out a bit.
now you need some "fresh" air and go into the wild forrest and cind of overtake these voices and ideas to settle yourself down a bit (calming) where the meds didn't work or was dangerous (would mostly not choose meds that will have these cind of effects on these areas) since some can make it worse or "open" up some dangerous stuff.

Cool good things turned out well

My brother would beat me savagely whenever i made it home so i had spent a lot of time on the streets i would wander for no reason other then to not be anywhere i was supposed too and my parents worked almost 24/7. my mom would leave for work in the morning and come back at 3 in the morning. no one could help me. so i guess that drives me to help anyone i can, because i know the feeling all too well of being helpless. it sucks, i wouldn't wish my life on anyone. but i came out stronger, i can outrun most people, i can take a severe beating like a champ, i can even take being publicly ridiculed in stride.
would want to know the story of what happend to this friend, also why was your brother like that? (rep, by weakness, hatred?) I guess then your mom was rather leaving it (if I am not mistaken or if the work was like that or what she worked like) to stay away from the stuff/enviorment at home?

I unknowingly stopped someone from committing suicide by simply becoming friends with them and having good times and once i was told that i stopped them from committing suicide i felt soo incredibly happy and mad as well since they were planning on doing it in the first place... moving on, i saved my grandma a few times.I stood up for an old friend, she was constantly teased and bullied by assholes.Helped the poor a few times.On a daily basis i help my family/friends.

Sometimes, I help people pick up things that they've dropped. It's the small things that count.

Yes, I think it`s a great thing. If you think about it philosophically, what`s left without people, so we gotta help each other out.

People ask me for help, I give them the best advice, and they never really take that advice and wind up failing. So I don't always help people like I used to.

I used suffer from Bi-Polar depression I try to make the best of my life.. So when I see people who are depressed and suicidal I can't help helping. There have been people that I have talked to and tried helping in anyway i can. I like helping people to the point where I am an EMT now working a job where I'm helping people on a daily basis.

I used to be a mod on an eating disorder recovery forum, which meant I had to look for any potential triggers and filter them out when people were sharing their thoughts and stories. I know the word "trigger" has become a joke, but knowing what it's like to have those behaviors harnessed by outside factors... well, I figured I helped someone by not letting them see or absorb certain things. I tried to, anyway.

There is this group in my town called The Chive. You do random acts of kindness, it's a great group of people. There are a lot of folks walking for kids with cancer, or just generally helping a person out - like when their car breaks down, when they need gas money, etc... If you're on Facebook, type in The Chive, or just go type in your town and Chive.. They are all over the place.

I pay it forward when I can - like when I'm out for dinner I'll grab someone's bill, or pay it forward in a store and buy someone groceries, give a homeless person some money or food... It's fun, and gives you some good karma, I think. The look of shock on their face in a grocery store is awesome, too lol.
