    I am new to this site. I just wonder how many others live with the thought of suicide everyday-almost as if it is O.C.D? I can't get the thoughts out of my head. I tried to hurt myself over 15 times. Many were never reported. I did not tell anyone. I was not looking for attention. Two times I almost was sucessful I was found and sent to the E.R. I have done hospitals and therapy in the past. I can't afford to go now. The money is not here. I live with a lot of medical issues including depression. I know everyone has their problems-many worse than mine. I find I have no one to talk to-such stigma attached to even talking about suicide. My husband died of a heart attack 6 years ago. I really think I should be next to him. I don't have any children. My stepson was killed and later his wife was murdered. I moved in with an abusive guy and stayed for three years. I moved back to my hometown and I thought the suicide thoughts would leave. I don't have a reason to go on. I don't have an answer anymore on what to do for help. Thank you, Cathy

    My relationship to death and suicide can definitely be called an obsession. I see everything through the lens of suicide now, no matter what it is.
