  • Please talk to a family member or friend.
    Get in touch with a therapist and work through your problems - please.

    Suicide is not the answer.
    It will leave your kids, your partner and your family heartbroken, and that can't be what you want.

    Please, find someone to talk to and try to work through your problems because life is worth living, only you can improve the quality of your life.

  • i have had times where i have felt like that but even when you feel there is nothing left just think about your children and how lost they would be without you even if you feel there is nothing left there is always something worth living for and always remember you are strong and god will not give you anything more than he knows you can handle

  • I've been there, it seems like anything any one says doesn't matter. You want to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it's hard. Please know that you are not alone. There are some great groups here that can help, and I think it's a big step that you are coming out and reaching out for help. I hope that you can find the support you need.

  • i am not going to pry, but if you are on prozac....get off of it! it had my mom suicidal can wean yourself off, and try something different. as far as the rest contact local help as far as with your help and food stamps, things like that. even a local church can help with food problems. with your depression, i prob am not a good one to help with that, but find a therapist, or like i said b4 go to a church and talk to the preacher, they're trained for counseling as well. good luck momma! remember your kids need you!

  • Thank-you.But I feel the kids are better off w/o me.I yell and am sad all the time.I feel they would get more help if they were just with their dad.I am not on prozac.I am on another med.I have been for years.I am just tired of not being happy.I cant go into much more b/c I dont want anyone to revognize me but I have been going through so much lately and just cant seem to deal with it anymore.I am scared to die yet I have been tempted so many times to just take some pills and end it.

  • It may seem like life may not have much to offer you right now but God does. Please go to your church and ask for help. There is power in prayer. There is so much for you to live for. Your children need their Mother. You do not want to miss out on seeing them grow up and have children of their own. If nothing else think about the impact your suicide would have on them. Would you want them to follow in your footsteps? Call a friend or family member and tell them how you feel, please, Honey, get help.

  • go to the hospital. tell a doctor. commit yourself. there are professionals who are there to help people in your situation. you can get better, and be there for your kids later on in life.
    i know it doesnt mean much from a stranger, but i'll pray for you.
