a day at a time... - October 21st 2012, 12:39 AM

I've posted a few threads on here over the past few days.
Plenty of people have replied, PMd me to talk, or just offered support.
My feelings have not completely subsided about ending my life, but I am still fighting.
About the only way I have made it this far is I have decided to not act on these thoughts at the moment, but I have decided to put space between my feelings and my actions. Every day that one little good thing happens, it is enough for me to decide to give myself 24 hours before I do something. Maybe if I keep this approach up it will be enough to get me by...for now.
But I know that I cannot just live my entire life putting day after day off on acting on these actions.
I have to be able to know that I will not think about it every day, but it is hard.
I just wish that medicine and therapy helped me, but honestly it drives me even closer to going over the edge being on them.
I honestly just wish that I could be normal. :/


Here's to you, fill the glass. Cuz the last few nights have kicked my ass.

I read something once that I thought applied here. "The most important thing for you to do right now is live. That's your goal for this week. Focus on being happy for the rest of the week. And when that week is over, do it again, and again, until you feel better." Just take it one week at a time. I also have a smile board in my room, and I put up things that make me smile every time I look at them, the things that I would miss. You could try this maybe?

I hope you feel better.

Why can't I stay strong?

Strength, like everything else, can be built with practice. You will be strong someday, just have a little patience and faith.


No matter what, I am here for you.

Believe me I'm trying to be strong, I truly am. Some days are just so much worse than others. Unfortunately the bad days are enough to almost break me
