    Hi there, Paul here.

    Just registered, thought I'd say hello.

    In a bit of a dire situation with no apparent solution. I found this place via Googling earlier out of curiosity.

    Not properly attempted to pull the plug yet but I'm preparing. I've even written the notes (but I'll probably think of more that I need to write....).

    Anyway, gonna look round here first (and elsewhere) as it's a calm, sunny Sunday and so there's little chance of getting hassle, so no rush right now.

    Best wishes,

    I've decided not to do owt drastic today, but to later try to mend things a little by emailing a couple of people that might be able to help (once I've figured-out what to type).

    Hello again folks. As you can tell, I am still around and about. I think that I've really turned a corner. I was at the bottom and it all seemed so very bleak. But some friends reminded me of what a great man they though I was and it helped alot. I have also been offered a job and I accepted. It will be hard in the early days but I'll do my best.

    If you have internet access, use it as much as you can! it might have saved me. Ignore the idiots out there but try to find friends that can help. They may be old friends, family or new friends but they all count. If you have the chance to put the spade-work in then hopefully it will bear (bare?) fruit.

    Anyway, I wish you all the best and I hope that my words are of help.

    Paul :)

    Thanks very much and I send the hug back to you! x

    I know that it's easier to say than do, but everyone if you can talk to others then do so! it can make all the difference. Ignore the idiots if you can and heed the wise. ;) x

    Paul, this thread is the perfect example of how taking ones own life can be cheating themselves out of any future happiness and success. Thank you for the update. It means a lot to me to read it. Congratulations on your new job. Also, thank you for the words of wisdom. They are right on !! :hug:

    hi paul.

    im happy to hear you are still out there now. And i wish you all the best with your new job.
    Me too, recently was at the bottom of thoughts. i even put through with my ideas on it.

    Last may i tried to commit suicide 2 times. I know i have lots of people around me, who care about me too.
    Still, after my first attempt, i was not over it. The only thing i worried about was, how i could still survived it. So after a few days, while keep some people at a leap, i made my second effort.

    I know i am very lucky to be still here right now, although i'm not a cat, i dont have 9 lives.
    We all have our problems. and after my second attempt, i got into this mental wing of the hospital where psychiatrists examined me. Nobody could tell me what my mental problem really was.

    Now it's september, 4 months later. and i'm still here. And im lucky i am.
    Now i get help too, i was almost kicked out of my rental home, i took over after my mom passed away.

    And now i'm at this social worker too. she recommended me to talk with her more. and i found out it made me feel much better to talk with complete strangers about my problems.
    So that's why i came here too. Also i started a website with my blog on it about what happened and what got me that far.

    Anyway, i hope you could post some more here too. and take care ok
