Sadly enough, this is something that has crossed my mind from time to time. Not necessarily hanging myself but suicidal thoughts. Probably goes with being a manic depressant. Believe me, I'd never take this route for suicide. With my luck I'd just end up a quadriplegic and a normal life of freedom to just walk and photograph would be the last thing I ever do. Either way, it is truly the last option, the last resort.

Cropped and adjusted brightness/contrast and desaturated to give the focus more definition. I used two light source to cast two shadows, to make it more interesting and provide some depth. (5 years and 2738 days ago)

That's an awful thing to live with.

I so feel for you. I know nothing I can say will really help, and that when you are so down, sanity and common sense leaves you. I can just hope that you will beat the depression and enjoy life. Life it's not forever and so much of it is really wonderful.

Thanks Friiskiwi and everyone else. I really do appreciate your concern. I probably just need meds (and a full time job) But honestly it's been my discovery of PXLeyes that's really done wonders for my depression. Although I still get moody, overall this wonderful site helps me stay positive. And in this particular case my depression gave me a unique idea for this contest. With this entry I feel it really stands out as far as the emotional influence.

Bottom line: PXLeyes stays online... Then I'll be just fine

You are correct, it is an emotional entry. I like the cast of the shadows on the walls, very somber and haunting. I am sorry to hear that your are struggling.

Very nice entry stemming from a very real issue. I'm no expert, but the one thing I would say is to NOT try and deal with it alone. There are many resources available for you to speak with people who know what they're talking about. We're here for you.

iquraishi says:

sad to hear about it author.. but do remember, as I do, bad things are of course bad but they happen so that we can enjoy the coming good time..

author [banned] says:

Oh my friends, you are all simply awesome. And don't worry, I'm too chicken-sh*t to off myself anyways. Even if I had a gun.. lets just say I've met someone who did try to kill themselves by gun inflicted wound to his head. He lived! A lived the rest of his days in a nursing home. So yeah, that's the problem with suicide. Sometimes it backfires, instead of dying, you live and and life becomes much worse. Besides I got PXLeyes. This site has seriously helped me and given me back some of my self esteem again and some appreciation

iquraishi says:

good to hear your thoughts about the site.. I just love this site.. I spend most of my time on this site.. to see the creativity from all around the world.. I'm addicted to 2 things for sure now.. 1. pxleyes.com and 2. batman..

avatar locksmagic

Author here are a bunch of comments from people who care and don't even know you. if there are this many people in the virtual world who care enough to take the time to stop and write a message of encouragement then I'm sure there are several people in your life who care even more. It's those people that you need to think about when your having a down moment my friend, pick up the phone and call someone, anyone... Even if it's just to say hi or to tell them to go online and look at your really depressing photos Hang in there man, no matter how bad it is remember it will all get better eventually!

Howdie stranger!
