    What if you reach out to people, only to find they all turn on you in your time of need? What do you do when even professional help is slowly being taken away from you? How do you keep on distracting yourself from the feelings of loneliness and hopelessness? What keeps you going, what makes you get out of bed every day? I'm just wondering what works for everyone else, because I'm about at the end of my rope and not sure how much more of this I can take.

    The only thing that keeps me going is that my body just won't stop. My mind is a mess, but my body and much of my mind is still functioning normally and I'm not the type of person that's able to take their own life. I always feel like I can't take it anymore or that I should die from it, but I don't. I've been suffering for 2 and a half years and it's become evident by now that it's not going to kill me. I'm sorry that you are suffering. It just isn't fair that some of us have to suffer mentally. It's just not the way that life should be.

    That's sort of how I am too. I sometimes wish my body would shut down, because I am still too cowardly to end it all. That would make things easier, and at least I wouldn't have to feel this way anymore. I'm sorry that you are struggling so much, I wish that no one would ever have to feel this way.

    Yeah I'm hoping the abuse of my body will end it prematurely

    Quite simple. Helping others and trying to make a difference. Treat each day as its my last day of my life. Knowing that I help others is my only focus in life. People forget about the true needed folk like homeless who just want a hot meal or someone to talk to.

    That is similar to what I was going to say. I help my clients all of the time and it helps move the motivation wheel inside.

    What gets me out of bed is a job that has people depending on me to be there for them. Otherwise I would be sleeping in.

    I stay alive because i don't want to hurt my mother, at least that's what i tell myself. In reality it's more the fear of death.
