    I'm not really sure what to say. For the first time in my life, my view on suicide has changed. I used to say how selfish it was but I don't feel that anymore. Instead, in the face of unbearable feelings and increasing depression, suicide seemed like my only option. And in fact the best thing I could do for those around me. Not only not selfish, but actually selfless. That is what I believed when I made an attempt just over a week ago.

    Obviously I am still here. My attempt was discovered by my husband and I have spent much of the last week in a respite home for the suicidal. An experience I will always be grateful for.

    I don't really know how to describe where I am at or how I feel now. I feel like it's a dream because I shouldn't be here. But at the same time I want to fight to live.
