    I stupidly tried to end it all on Thursday night, thank god I didn't succeed.
    I now feel optimistic to get myself sorted.
    I think it scared me to realise how close I had come & how it's not the answer.
    I hope this doesn't break rules, sorry if it does.

    Hi, AJE. I'm sorry you felt that badly and desperate. I'm glad you didn't "succeed" at it.

    Constructive things are a much happier solution. Do you have some things in mind to help you move forward now? I'm glad you shared here, and hope you will keep us posted on how you're doing. You'll have a whole team of cheerleaders here as you try new and positive things. :)

    AJE, I hope that you are well. They say that once you reach the bottom the only way is up, hopefully you are on the way to happier and more peaceful days.

    THANKYOU Acy & mph
    After my relationship when wrong I was left with literally nothing, just the clothes I could retrieve & my car, this time last year I had a place to live & all that comes with that.
    I need a place to live & build my life up again, I have great support from family & friends, I'm lucky tho I didn't feel it on Thursday night.
    I have so much to look forward to, my kids & a great friend who has always supported me, she's amazing.
    I want to work hard now & save money so I can make mine & my kids lives better.
    Thanks to everyone on here whose offered me great support when I was so low.
    It won't be easy but as u say at your lowest the only way is up.

    I am in the position of unemployment and living on a small pension and no health insurance for myself. My wife and I barely make ends meet yet she is the optimist and I am pragmatic. There are days that are tough yet for some reason I keep plugging along, you will too.

    I am naturally a pessimist but I know now I have to look beyond today & to the future.
    I have a great support network

    AJE-I'm new to this forum but I'm not new to the topic of the forum. I struggled with suicidal thoughts and chronic depression for decades. You are not alone-your feelings are not wrong and illogical. Many thousands of people all over the world feel just like you do. Rest in the knowledge that you are never alone and you are always loved and accepted by your sisters and brothers.

    Thankyou life talks
    This is all so new to me, I've been down before but this is another level.
    I realise how important friends & family are when u get to this stage.
    I'm feeling brighter today, a good friend has invited me round to watch the football later, it's something I havnt done in ages & im looking forward to it.
    Life seems a bit brighter today after months of feeling hopeless.

    Hello AJE, so glad you are with us and looking forward to something. That is wonderful to hear.

    When you've been so down, "a bit brighter" is HUGE.

    Take care and keep us updated.

    Big hugs, Angie

    Thanks texaskitty
    I feel like getting so low has given me a sort of boost.
    It really is the only way is up.
    I have lots of good people to call upon when it gets a bit much again, I genuinely feel a bit boosted .
    I realise now I need people around me as much as possible.
    Hugs
    Andy

    I'm delighted you have seen the light at the end of the tunnel. You're here for a reason and only you can find that reason. I am really glad you survived to tell the tale :)

    It helped me a lot to focus on getting through just one day with my head on straight-instead of always worrying about how I was going to fix the rest of my life forever. Knowing that my feelings weren't crazy and irrational helped a lot too. There really are millions of people who feel exactly like you do-your life is a lot more normal than you think it is. Have faith that you are never alone-there are many walking the same path with you. I hope this day is a good day for you. LT

    It was a low moment that made me sort of realise I have to start making efforts to feel happy.
    You have to get really low I suppose to start working back up.
