If you have found yourself in a low place in your life you might not just be going through a phase of sadness or gloom.

You might actually be fighting with the inside components of your mind.

This battle that you are fighting every day can leave you feeling drained physically, emotionally, and mentally.

You might have headaches, body pain, fever, chills, tension, loss of interest, heaviness in the chest and it could even go as far as thinking about suicide.

If you are having these symptoms it is always a good idea to see a doctor, if this illness is left untreated it could cause long lasting damage to you both physically and mentally.

It is not something that will just go away on its own, the depression, even if it is only mild will continue to disrupt your life until you decide that you want something to be done about it.

Talking to your personal doctor is the best place to start, from there they will decide if you need medication, therapy or a combination of the two in order to beat this disease.

If you are fighting the lines of suicide your treatment options might be a little bit more extreme than if you were only dealing with depression.

Your doctor might want to put you in an out or in patient rehab for you to be able to get the best round the clock aid in fighting this battle and getting you on the road to being the best version of yourself in no time.

Trying to deal with this illness alone, is never a good idea, when your brain is being clouded by the heavy weight of sadness, no good results will be found.

We understand that it can sometimes be hard or uncomfortable to talk about topics such as this one but, it is important to understand that everyone at some point or another has had thoughts of suicide.

From the rich to the poor, the single to the married, the happy to the sad; nobody has a perfect life and sometimes the option to just end everything seems so easy and like it would solve all of the problems that you are facing in your life.

We get it, we have all been there.

Depression and suicide is not something that should be taken lightly as the results of letting it go untreated can be tragic.

An important reminder that if you are having thoughts that revolve around wanting to end your life, we understand that you are not trying to die but, to end the pain.

It is critical to understand that all of the pain you are feeling right now, will not just vanish when you pass away; all that will happen is it will be transferred to other people.

The people who love you, your friends, family, animals, teachers, coworkers and even people in local places that you visit that you would not even think would be effected by your passing.

For example, the local cashier at the gas station that you go into every day after work, when she sees you maybe she smiles and you make her happy, maybe she is also suffering from something and seeing you is the only thing that gives her hope everyday.

You never know what impact you have on this world or how many people’s lives you touch and change in an every day to day basis.

Please, do not take your life, the world would be a much worse place without you in it.
