    hi everyone-
    I am Josie and I am 29 from the USA. I have spent the better part of my life in and out of psychiatric facilities. I have attempted to take my own life on several occasions, deal wih self-mutilation, and substance abuse issues. I have a horrific past of abuse in several forms. I feel like I am on my last leg here. I dont know what else to do as I feel my life is going to be this way forever. I have taken every med possible, been to more support groups than I care to count, spent thousands of hours and money visiting mental health professionals and feel like I am at my bottom. I dont know what else to do so I did a google search and found this place. I am 29 and yet my younger brother is 20 has accomplished more things than I ever have. I just dont know what to do anymore. I am afraid of everything including myself.

    Please help.

    Hey josielovely

    Welcome to the site, so glad you found it here. I know you've said you have tried everything 'out their' but something will click. This is possibly a bit of a personal question and please excuse me if you find this rude. But do you have any mental diagnoses? Ect, anxiety, bipolar... Finding the underline stem of your suicidal feelings is what is needed. I see you speak about going through some abuse, possibly you have ptsd along side?

    Don't worry about anyone else, your brother ... a friend ect. Everyone grows at different paces. Just because you aren't married doesn't make you any less of a person then him.

    Please be safe,
