I've actually been staying away from porn and mb, which is better then I've done in months. I'm still very discouraged and depressed and have had frequently thought of suicide the past few days. Have refrained from cutting since wed, so am doing slightly better.

Not sure what I can do. To be happy. I'm actually making a little progress, but what should I do different?


Have you ever...    
"Hey Anon16, you'll have to pardon my lack of understanding your entire situation. Have you spoken with a doctor about how you've been feeling? I am actually doing my masters on psychological disorders, and it sounds like you could really benefit from speaking to somebody about potentially being diagnosed with depression. A lot of people are hesitant to do so, but I really think that getting in touch with somebody that can help you find more constructive ways of coping with your feelings would be a huge benefit to you.

Like I said, I don't know your entire situation, but I really feel like you could benefit a lot. If you have any questions or concerns about it, I'll try and answer them the best I can as well."

Not sure    
"This point that isnt an option for me. I've thought about it, what with my Bishop urging me about counseling. I don't want to take medication,i think that's my biggest concern. I'm not sure how much of it is my addiction and the shame from it causing it - I've had an issue with depression since I started, but at the same time I really started when I started getting hormones so I don't know how much they are connected.
what exactly does it entail?"

"Are you battling a demon of addiction—tobacco or drugs, or the pernicious contemporary plague of ography? Whatever other steps you may need to take to resolve these concerns, come first to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Trust in heaven’s promises. In that regard Alma's testimony is my testimony: "I do know," he says, "that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions."
