the prodigal failure

I have been suicidal many times in my life. I have 3 attempts that were unsuccessful but the last one was close ( 3 days in ICU on a ventilator). The fact that I am here is positive. My wife, I cannot talk to about how I feel. She views these feelings as selfish attempts at her, which is far from the truth. I would give anything to not be suicidal, to not have a form of bipolar disorder, to be normal, for lack of a better word. Maybe I can help some of you and perhaps you may help me, knowingly or not.

Welcome to SF, prodigal! I am sorry that you're hurting right now. When somebody will not listen to me or I am not in the mood to talk, I write down everything I am feeling. Sometimes, I tear up the paper I wrote it on! It makes me feel tons better. Feel free to type your feelings here; we will listen and offer our support. I look forward to seeing you around the forum. Best wishes to you :)
