    Right before I tried to kill myself, I didn't tell anybody I was going to do it, because if they told me any of this I would have never done it:

    -how devastating it would be for my children.
    -how much they loved me.
    -that they wouldn't ever forgive me if I did it.

    Now, I didn't know about this forum, if I did I would have being convinced to not do it for sure, now, I love that a lot of you are here telling us what your plans are and how bad you are feeling and even though you don't see it that way, you are dying for someone to help you, if only you could hear the right words, what would those be?, please share, maybe it will help us save you or save others.

    What stops me is that the last time i tried and my husband came to the hospital, he said, looking down at me, "if you go, il have nothing, i would probably follow you". As much as i want to die, those words are what stops me.

    What has stopped me, is all of the past women in my life.
    Every single one of them has hurt me in ways I can not even come close to describing. So I continue searching for one that won't, then maybe the poison my heart has turned to won't be as strong. That is for a future item to address though.

    Sadly, it's quite simple. I just want someone who actually loves me to hold me and tell me that they'll help me through this.

    My best friend, everything she does for me. She really does so much... how could I possibly do that to her? I always tell her that she's the only reason I'm still alive. Which is true. If she weren't here I would of gone through with suicide long ago.

    ive tried it and i dont think there are any words or actions that can really stop you if you want it.

    as i was passing out i thought of a person and how much i love them but also how much they upset me.

    there was all this conflicting emotion but at the end of it, if i would hav e never woken up at the end of it, i would have still been ok with all those thoughts both good and bad because that was just how it was,

    The simple thoughts of leaving my two babies. That is about the only thing that keeps me from downing pills or some other out. I hate living in this world, being depressed all the time, not having any real reasons to do anything every day, and just wishing each day was already over the second I wake up in the morning...But thinking of my two children keeps me from sleeping forever.
