    On Sept 1 I attempted to end my life. I took xxxx. I realize that this was not enough to do the job now, but it has changed myied to life. I had researched on the net how much to take but could not find a number. My hands were shaking. It was the worst day of my life.

    I got in my car and was just driving around, thinking I was going to die and wondering what it would feel like. My gf had broken off her engagement to me, my money probs were out of this world, and I had not seen my kid in ages. I was at the bottom.

    So in my car, I called my told her what I had done, and hung up the phone. She called back-didnt expect her to-and talked me to the hosptial she came and sat with my mom while they checked my heart, etc.

    I drank that crappy chalk drink and listened to the shrinks say that my probs were "situational" and they would not keep me overnight. A close pastor of mine and tried to get them to keep me. They would not.

    Then the rest is somewhat of a blur-
    I was pretty sleepy. No one wanted me. My gf did not want me back in the house and my father said I could not go there. I had no money. I was going to end up in a shelter, and Lord knows what would have happened there.

    My gf took me back into her house. Until the drama died down. Then she made it clear I was with her for one month only then I was gone.

    I stayed 2 days. I could not look at those I had hurt without feeling guilty. My sister took me in and I stayed with her for a week.

    My shrink said that I did not need antidepressants just needed to change the way I deal with things and he helped get me into a mental health clinic to get the help I need.

    I have filed bankrupcy-best decision ever. I am taking the steps to seek legal aid to see my daughter more.

    I have a good job.

    I am alive.

    Somedays it is not easy....

    I am glad you are taken the steps to see your daughters more and you have a new job. If your pdoc won't give you antidepressants i don't understand that one ask your regular doctor about it they can order these meds if u think the would help. I am glad you are still here so your daughters will have their parent to love them I hope you continue to get the needed support to stay stable.
