    im not sure where to turn. I've tried talking to a direct family member but these feelings are not going away. It day 4 of me actively contemplating ending my life. Ive even broken into the gun cabinet that my husband locked.

    this (posting on here) is my inpulsive attempt at preventing this final decision ive decided on.

    is there anybody out there who can help?

    Hi there & welcome to the forums. Please get rid of the methods you have, your life can get better, it has for many people and can for you too. What exactly has happened to trigger this suicidal episode 4 days ago?

    I have not seeked the help of a professional. ..this started with the realization that I can not get out of my situation (re: ending of a 30+yr relationship/marriage). I can not seem to grasp at any ..hope

    I think your best bet would be to see your general doctor and they will refer you to a therapist who can help you cope with all of this, they may start you on medications to make you feel better while the therapy works. Even though your situation seems dire and something you cannot fix psychiatric and medical care will help you through it.
