I will not tell you the usual "cheer up" words that most would. I. too, suffer from severe depression due to constant pain.I, too, have wondered if it's worth it to keep going. There are several things that keep me from ending the pain. I love my family, and I try to stay in favor with my God. If you were to leave here, it would cause pain for many other people, including me, even though I don't personally know you. Death is not the answer. Life is. Grab it, live it to the fullest, and fight the monster with all your might. If you don't, everyone loses.I, too, posted a note here once about giving up hope. But I'm still hanging in, and I'm glad I did. So are my wife, children, and grandchildren.There have been some good times since then that I would have missed if I had ended it all. Feel free to e-mail me if you wish. There are many others on this board who can help. I truly have stood where you stand, and survived. So can you.
