    Hi, there.

    My name is Ellen and I'm addicted to suicide. I'm writing from a partial hospital program in Westwood, MA. I've been here for over a month. Before this, I was an inpatient at xxx psych ward for a month and before that, I was at xxx ER. I'm 53 and for most of my life, I haven't seen a reason for being alive. I've tried to kill myself four times now; most recently I came very close to succeeding. I used to have a successful life and now I've lost everything. The good folks here at the hospital tell me I need to live and I'm working on reasons to believe them. For now, I've promised not to harm myself. I'm hoping to find other people to connect with who can sort of identify.
