    I have tried atleast 40 times to kill myself and have ended up in ICU everytime. 15 yrs ago I had a car accident from drinking and almost died. was in a coma for 3 weeks had a traumatic brain injury, but can function. the depression just hangs on longer now. I am in pain all the time. have no insurance/ I have a 22 y/o son who is currently in prison, been in/out since 11. cant visit because of restraining order i filed on him. I am an alcoholic/bipolar, and there is no hope. i havent spent any holiday with him since he was 11. I was abusive,,physically and mentally. I am only 39. I lost my job 2 years ago, when I got another one it lasted about 5 months. They said I just didnt fit in, so I should just go back on unemployment. I couldnt afford my new home that I built in 2003. So I moved out and let my ex move in with the woman he cheated on me with. then last year my new truck was reposessed. and oh yeah, i am living with my mother who by the way just gave a 30 day notice to move out. i have no where to go and have 11 days to find a place. i have no car, but a house full of great furniture. i have no money and no one in my family will help, they think my depression is SELFISHNESS. my logic....i need to start over somewhere where noone knows me. then maybe i can make some friends. oohhh i cant, i have no money.
    i have lived in the same town since i was 10. and all my friends have written me off also.

    Are you taking medication for your bipolar?

    Have you looked into women's shelters in your area? Just until you get on your feet again?

    Well it sounds as if you were where I was about five years ago. Rock bottom. But I found hope and you can too! Everything can be turned around for you! I turned away from all the things I used to do, drugs, booze, sex [I decided to wait till I got married], and I plunged into the unknown with nothing but a suit case, a cat, a pocket full of cash, and my new loyalty to the one being I used to reject. Yahweh. You may know him as God. I stayed with my folks, got back on my feet, reopented, prayed, and got everything I prayed for. Later [2 yrs later] I prayed for relief for my bipolar and I got it. I quit ciggs by prayer also. And the drinking I gave up, but I know I had help there too. All my prayer, and faith in my prayer built a strong foundation for my relationship with Yahweh, and I am blessed for it. My life is comepletely changed! I went from being homeless to being a land and homeowner! I went from having a cat to two kids! I went from being lonely to being fulfilled. It worked for me, and I do not regret it. There is hope, do not neglect your spirit! Blessings..
