    Hi everyone,
    I came to this forum because a month ago I tried to kill myself with an OD. My friend gave me CPR and revived me so here I am.
    I am a 31 year old woman who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and panic disorder. I am no longer on any medication because I can't bring myself to go to a doctor again and since losing my job I can no longer afford it anyway.
    All I know is I don't want another 31 years of feeling this way.
    Thanks for listening.

    “Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward." these words may seem arbitrary, dull, out of reach and out of sight. I don't know much about your struggles, but i do however, recognize you as a winner. You took a huge blow, and got up! That's something NOBODY can take away! Your strength has been tested, and you madame, took the hit life gave you, the hit that nearly knocked you out, and got back up! DO NOT think that since you were rescued, you are weak! I'm not talking about that incident! No, i'm talking about the fact that you're here, now, stepping out of your corner and started fighting it by sharing your stories! You are amazing, an inspiration to whomever has ever felt the same way.. Keep fighting, prove that you've got more to give!:D

    Hi Lorne

    Go get help - it worked before and will work again.

    You deserve more than that.
