Hey,
I had a suicide attempt yesterday and I suddenly feel better!?

I suffer from double depression (dysthymia + severe depressive episodes). I basically never feel good. The best feeling I get is, when I just don't care. Every day is the bad day you get over, because you hope, the next day isn't as bad. But for me that day hasn't come for at least 5 years at best.

So yesterday I couldn't take it anymore and tried the night-night method. It didn't work like described so after an hour or 2 I gave up.

I wrote with a good friend of mine after that and told her how I feel (not what I did) and she made me seek help. It's starting next Wednesday.

As I woke up today the depressive episode is gone and I'm only left with a subtle dysthymia.

Am I under shock or what is going on?
Is there an explanation?
Not that I don't take it, but I can't quite believe it.

I'm not surprised that the night-night method didn't work- it seems like a tough method to do. I'm glad that you feel better. :)

Sorry, what is the night-night method? I’m new.

I'm glad you're feeling better too. I also have severe depression…
