...like everyone in your life would be better off without you?  Have you ever seriously weighed the options of taking the hand full of pills or waiting to see if tomorrows any better?

What did you do? (answers associated with things other than god are greatly appreciated)

Yeah I have felt like that. But instead of doing it, I talked to someone that cared. And now I am glad I didn't because things got so much better.

I was very young but knew someone that had so I got help.

Sometimes things get overwhelming and you need to reach out and that is okay.  In today's world there are so many options to get help and if I was ever in that position that is what I would do.  My mother dated someone who's ex wife committed suicide while they were dating.  He got custody very quickly and unexpectedly so he and my mother bought a house together and I saw first hand how it devastated those children.  Please get help.

Where was someone that cared?  I'm stronger than most but it's been a struggle lately.

It was my boyfriend at the time. Later on I realized he was emotionally abusive and the reason I felt like that.

Yes I have felt like that. In my darkest hours what got me through was thoughts of what it would do to my children if I went through with it. The feelings passed and things got better.

Yup. I sat on the floor of my bathroom staring at an unopened bottle of 100 750mg vicodin pills, and half a bottle of raspberry vodka. For hours, debating. Thankfully, my best friend, now husband, would not leave me alone because he knew something was wrong, just by the way I was answering his texts.

I've seriously weighed the option of taking all the pills, have over-dosed, and ended up in a psychiatric hospital. Whether I'm here or not, life would obviously go on for my loved ones. I believe they'd even understand because they know the terror of my illness. They'd still be horribly hurt and I don't want to do that to them. You won't get any preaching from me because if the Christian god exists, I think he's a dick. 

I'm still alive because my illness hasn't taken me yet. I will continue to fight for my life because as much as it can suck, I love life, I love waking up and seeing the sun/daylight, I love watching the moon rise, I love my animals, I love my family (not necessarily in that order) :)

I don't think anyone would be better off without me. They'd be fine without me. I'm not that damn important. lol But better off? Nah I like to be here for my kids and even when I'm not right in my head, I believe they're still glad I'm here. Sometimes we get clouded thinking and forget the support and love we offer to those few people in our lives who value us.
