Im sick of having suicidal thoughts. This isn't me who wants to die, it's an illness. An illness caused by shitty circumstances which can be fixed/treated Im not judging those who think otherwhise, after all, everyone has his/her personal story.
Im going to seek help so that at least I can say I tried.

Feel free to share your experiences of therapy. Negative and positive

It is good you consider theraphy. Suicide for me should be a last resort when you're out of other options.
For me it helped somewhat for diminishing negative thoughts that led to anxiety, for my social phobia. However now i developed another condition that isn't responding to treatment, and that's what led to me looking for a final escape

This post makes me happy, I personally have never gone to therapy due to financial issues and cowardness, but I've asked around enough to understand what therapy can do. I hope you find all you need in therapy. Asking for help takes a lot of courage and I'm glad you're seeking it out. Help does help if you really want it. Go in with an open mind. It might take more than one therapist to find the right one, it might take more than one kind of medicine to find the right one, it might take several paths to find the right one... Or if you're lucky, you might get it all in one shot! But most importantly, know that all this effort won't be for nothing. You might still end up having suicidal thoughts, but at least then you can say that you did try to get better. Wishing you a better future. <3

It's great that you're going to therapy. I'd suggest keeping an open mind and persevering till you get a therapist who can help, because that can be a difficult and time consuming task.

I haven't entered therapy myself because I don't think it's worth the money. My parents have already spent way too much money on me, and I don't want to add to that just to become functional. I'm not going to be able to pay them back, and it's time to let go.

Welp, I didn't mean to get on the self pity train there. Sorry.
