    hey folks,

    New here. very depressed. Have been suicidal for 30 years. Just recently lost my job and likely to lose my wife. Went out last nite, had too much to drink and wanted to kill myself. Went over to my friends house that I am house sitting and I thought he was in Florida. I was texting my wife and she said i was bothering her. I was very upset and truly believe I would have killed myself had my friend not appeared out of the bedroom. He hadnt left town yet- it was late.

    My wife finally got scared and called my brother who called the police. They came to my friends house and questioned me for an hour. They let me stay with my friend.

    What scares me is if my friend wasnt home I think I may have done something. Please help.

    I'm glad you didn't go through with it. Is your brother a source of comfort? Can you turn to him for help? He must care because he called for help for you. I'm here off and on during the day. If you need someone to talk to please PM me. Please don't do anything to hurt yourself. There are people who care here. I know because they have helped me. They can help you too.

    I hear you on the job thing. Women are *****s in the truest sense of the word. As soon as the money dries up (ie lost job) then she's gone. That's the way it always is. So don't blame yourself on that. That's just how women are.
