Welcome to Beyond Blue and thanx for the post you provided. Yes, I know these feelings very well also.
I would very much like to thank Jack for his really insightful response though - I've had counselling and the like over many years and despite all that, i still do get patches of my life where I go into deep depression over the concept of death and what it entails.
With Jack's response, I've had a lot of those comments and suggestions provided to me and they do work. Ok, for me not all the time, as I do have lapses and they do drag me a down a lot.
But I hope that you're now armed with some quality ammunition to fire at the demons when they come a knockin' and so you can reach out and grab the positives and live for the moment, live for the hour, live for the day and keep that going.
Another good thing, personally I find, is to hang around here a bit - and if you want some more light-hearted stuff, go to the Community Board and check out some different threads there. Just a bit of giggle at times and let's face it, a smile can really lift the spirits.
