    This hit close to home. I recognize the struggle, trying to seek help, to talk about it, but also seeing you’re the only one that can enact change…

    She is right to say that every experience is personal though. For some hearing that only them can save themselves is empowering. But for me more often than not it makes me feel worse, since depression makes me see myself as worthless, and so it doesn’t make me want to live or fight. And it makes me feel like it’s wrong to talk about it since it’s my own business.

    Ellen, I was really impressed by the way you allowed Sarah to talk about her illnesses, especially depression/suicide. You didn’t hurry her along like it seems other talk show host do. Mental health awarness is so important. Props to you Ellen!

    I am glad to hear her say she helped herself out of it. I went through health/depression/suicidal thoughts (while being a single father) and the strength you need is inside you. We have companions on our journey but ultimately we are on our own. Friends & family help, but can only do so much. Imaginary friends (all the myths of god) cannot help at all. I found the inner strength and made huge improvements in my life, got through my depression, and am no longer suicidal – I made it to edge of a skyscraper roof, and found the inner strength to back down safely.
