    I am having a really rough day... week... month... year.... LIFE. I can't even stand to look at myself anymore. I feel like all I ever do is let everyone down. I spend nearly every minute of my life trying to help my disabled daddy and keep my own family going, running after everyone and trying to be there for everyone... trying SO hard to hold my head high and put my big girl boots back on, but I am tired of trying so hard while all I ever get is more criticism. More complaining. I am stretched to the limit physically, emotionally, and financially. Nothing I do ever seems to be good enough anymore. I find myself locked in the bathroom or bedroom fighting with myself about just freakin ending it all. To be honest, the only reason I don't do it right now is that I have failed at my past attempts, and I am actually afraid to screw it up and end up being more of a burden to people.

    And I dont want to go back to the hospital. I can't.

    I just want to close it all out. I feel such anger and resentment.
    I am nothing but a damn doormat. Anytime I stand up for myself, I hear "did u forget to take ur meds?" UGH.

    My husband doesn't even sleep with me anymore most nights. We used to be SO inlove, but now, he doesn't even kiss me goodbye. I feel like he hates me. I feel like I have let him, and everyone else down. I just want to scream! I want SO badly to just lose control, give in to it, and let the rest of the world rot.

    I can feel myself closing up. Like a turtle in it's protective shell. Keeping the world out. I am so tired of fighting it.

    I wish I could just get away with him, but i don't think he wants that anymore. To be honest, I think this is just too much for him. I really don't think he is in love with me anymore. I can't blame him though. I have gained 30lbs in the last few months due to meds. I am sad, angry, and crying most of the time anymore, and I'm just not strong enough to keep going. My old self was a clean freak, but I dont even want to clean or do laundry anymore. I just don't care. On the days that are better I try to clean and catch up, but I am just completely overwhelmed. I keep trying to stay strong for my dad, but his health is deteriorating, and to be honest, it is everything I can do to hang in there for him. I know he needs me and doesnt have anyone else, but today, while sitting in the doc office with him, I made a decision; When daddy goes, I am going to go also.

    I cant do it anymore. He cut his ring off of his finger. He was the one person in this world that I thought could actually love me no matter what. When I tried to talk to him all I heard was all of the things I have done wrong. Not anything about what HE has said to me... not one thing about how he has treated me. NOt a hey- we r going thru tough times. no.... it's all me. I'm just a f*** up. everything I touch is broken. I know I need to move on. I know I am stronger on my own where no one an hurt me.... but I loved him dammit. I gave him all I had. It just wasnt enuf. I just want it to be over. everything. Im so damn tired of smiling and laughing and pretending. EVERYTHING HURTS.

    Hon - it's not you - some people are really good at taking and we don't notice when that changes until it's too late

    You sound like a loving, caring person and I think that there is someone else out there who will be the one you deserve

    thank U. I needed some kind words tonight. My daughter just came by also... my saving grace right there. For a 19 yr old, she really has her stuff together. She shouldnt have to hold me up. it isnt fair. but she does it anyway. Made me feel so much better.

    my husband is a loving caring person also. he really is. He has the best heart of anyone I have ever known. I just think i am too much for him. he doesnt know how to deal with it. He is trying though, God bless him. He is just as frustrated as I am, and to be honest... I think he is going thru a lot of the same feelings. He needs help too.

    I dont like being needy. I am the one who takes care of everyone else. When I am needy I am weak, and that isnt how I was raised.

    I hope so too. But sometimes I feel like I am nothing but a burden

    You haven't come across many of my posts - I know exactly how you feel

    We were raised to be the strong ones - the responsible ones

    And it hurts when we feel that we've failed in those responsibilities

    It doesn't make us bad people - just people in pain

    just wish other people got it.
    there are days when things are almost good. and then it all falls apart. Its like the move i give, the more is taken away.

    and yeh.. always had to be the tough one. My adopted brother raped me for about 6 years, and when they said I needed counseling, my family said "oh no, she is a clifton. she can tuff it out." so i was raped repeatedly throughout my life, and always... same thing.. she is tough. she is fine...... and when I grew up, and HE still did it.. made his comments about me, it was always... oh u took it wrong.... tuff up.

    I decided tonite. I cant even b there for my dad. his steel toed boots kind of left a mark, and I DONT CARE. David CUT his ring off of his finger, and for me, that was the last straw. I have nothing left. I hurt worse right now than I ever have. I cant take anymore.
