    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    That's a difficult question as everyone's different. Many times I have felt I reached the end. Life's not worth living. My emotional pain is so unbearable it's physical. I see no future and I am so alone.
    That's when I say "One more day" Hold on one more day.
    Nothing prepared me for PTSD. That's the day I died. The person I was, died, and the shell of my body lived. I am no longer the same person I was before. I act totally different, always afraid, I hide, my thinking is different, things I loved to do I don't care about anymore. I LOVED to celebrate Xmas and decorated and had all the family over for Xmas dinner. I feel nothing at Xmas anymore. I am confused, can't make decisions, I get lost, overwhelmed.
    But I still say "One more day. Give it one more day"

    I think the time to be most concerned would be when sadness turns to complete apathy. If someone is sad, they are at least still feeling. When I have been closest to suicide, it wasn't when I was sad, it was when I could no longer see the point to anything at all. I couldn't change because I just didn't care. How to make someone care? Sometimes a shock helps, sometimes logic, sometimes it's a mystery how to help.

    You are right on. Apathy, being unable to feel sadness, anger, hurt, any emotions at all. That is the state I was in after the event that I say ended my life. I felt nothing after the shock wore off. I saw no future, just a black hole. I didn't even know who I was or where I had gone. Just empty, a nothingness that I called an empty shell.
    I guess my mind said enough is enough.
    Total apathy is definitely a big red flag.
