Hopeless - March 27th 2013, 07:21 PM

I'm sat here with a pile of pills on one side, a knife on the other and a bottle of wine in my hand. I've tried everything. I can't work full time and now I'm drowning in debt. I've put this off for the last few days, trying to distract myself and facilitate some "good" emotions, but nothing had worked and now I am on the brink of destruction. I cannot and do not want to fight this anymore. I need help. I am so desperate. I don't know what to do.

Can you find anyone to talk to? Someone you trust? If you tell someone you trust about this, maybe they can bear it with you. Don't go through this alone.

And take heart...Easter's coming up and that's all about second chances, new life. I'm not trying to preach but I've seen and heard of amazing things happening in people's lives from following and believing in Jesus. There's a verse that may help ya...

"But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." - Matthew 6:33 (NRSV)

Jesus is telling the people not to worrying or fret over things like 'what will we wear?' 'what will we eat?' 'what will we drink?'. He points out that you can't get taller or live longer by worrying. Jesus then says that God knows you need these things. He knows. But seek God and His will first and God will provide. He may not give you the things you want, but He will certainly give you what you NEED. And He knows you better than you know yourself, so you're in good hands.

It is freedom, to follow and believe in Jesus.
If you are on the brink of destruction, what have you got to lose?

Hi, Ella!

I'm really sorry you're feeling this way and you tried to go through with it. I know things must be really really difficult for you right now... But please hang in there, it may not be tomorrow, or in a few days, but things do get better, I can promise you that much. <3

I'm so glad an ambulance is on the way. This is a second chance for you. You can keep trying, you have not lost your fight yet, sweetie. Keep going, you can do this. I believe in you, don't give up now. <3 I hope you can get some support now.

I discharged myself after narrowly escaping being sectioned. My manager now knows because I had to phone in sick for work this morning and I have now lost 3 shifts, so I really didn't help myself at all.

Re: Hopeless - March 29th 2013, 06:56 PM

You're right - you haven't helped yourself at all and maybe that's exactly what you need to start doing; helping yourself. You have to make changes if you want to see changes. It sounds like things are really hard for you right now and I'm sorry that you're going through such a rough time. You don't deserve it at all. I know these thoughts are really horrible and that when you're experiencing them badly, they are hard to overcome and beat but I also know that you have been going through this a long time so the fact that you are still here fighting really proves a lot about you wanting to get through this and also the fact that you say you tried to kill yourself, but then got the medical help you needed, again, makes me see that you really want to be alive and that is what you need to be holding on too. You've been fighting for so long, but you're still here and there's a reason for that.

So no matter how hard it gets, you keep fighting and keep trying. It's not going to be easy, but it is going to be worth it and you can get through it so don't give up until you get there, okay?

Hang on in there,
Jessie.
