    Hi Angela,

    I have had chronic daily headaches since age 8 in 1973. I have had depression and wanting to end my life for 23 years since pregnant with my daughter. After having her I felt worse and my headache pain got worse and now since mum died in December my suicidal thoughts and feelings are worse. I wish I had courage to end my life. MY 2 children who are 28 and 23 would not grieve for me like they do for my mum. They would be better off without me in their lives. I haven't been a good mum to them because of the depression and finding living so hard now my mum is no longer around. I have set a date to end my life in 6 years time to give me time to sell everything in the house and to make sure my son who has aspergers has the help he needs to live independently. Now I have set a date I feel able to carry on till then sometimes I feel I can't but, at least I only have to live this hell another 6 years.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for contacting me about my message I put up recently. I have been emailing the Samaritans about my suicidal thoughts and feelings since February. I have also contacted Supporting Minds for counselling as I am really struggling with everything at the moment. I will have a look at your patient information leaflet tonight to see what other help I can access. My health and wellbeing worker is contacting Cruse for me for bereavement counselling as it will be 6-8 weeks before I see a counsellor at Supporting Minds. After my mum's funeral her social worker transferred me back to Blackpool Single Point of Access mental health team so waiting to hear back from my worker I had before my mum died.

      You are wrong! No matter what age your children are they would be devastated by your loss and would never get over it. They can only ever have 1 mother and that is you. All you would be doing is passing your pain on to others - do you want that? I do understand how hard life is for you, but surely it's better to keep trying to get more help?

      I am not trying to be patronising here and obviously I don't walk in your shoes but you are needed in the world. We are all unique and you would be missed in the Universe. Hugs. xx

    You'd be a unique individual if you didn't at some point feel those...who among us hasn't? Emotional pain can be awful, but what good is forfeiting your future? What does it accomplish? The net result is bringing more despair and hurt into the world among those who love you, and depriving the world of all the potential you have to offer it. One day you'll look back and realize how close you came to making a foolish mistake.

    You not alone Angela, I am often overwhelmed by the nothingness of life, eg today. Hang on to God and try to make sure you do some useful things each day, whilst groaning hour after hour, he won't let you be tested beyond your capacity but you'll be surprised what your capacity actually is, join me in dragging your way to the end of the day and remain in touch by all means.

    Cheers

    Richard

    Hi Angela, I did answer this before but, my message must not have been accepted. I too feel like you Angela and I have set a date as well. I have had chronic daily headaches for 46 years and had depression for 23 years. Since my mum died in December I find it harder having to carry on living. Hopefully in 6 years time UK will have made the assisted dying law legal.

    ive been there so many times, my pains are mistakes i have made loosing everything, husband, home now living back at my parents. i do suffer from depression since my divorce 20 years ago and am anerexic which makes most days a living hell. i have had this for many many years. i do suffer now with back, hip, head pains daily and am on meds. i do often think how it would be so much easier not being here but i am getting help and am getting better. when i have these thoughts a out not wanting to be here i try snd turn my attention to someone who is a lot worse than i am and try to embrace what i have. i wake up the next morning thinking thank god i didnt do anything stupid. i hope you will find help and one day soon start to enjoy life again.

    i wish you all the best, love and light to you x

    Oh yes I often feel like that. When I do I then trawl the suicide sites looking for a painless method to do it. When I realise there aren't any (that I can find or have access to) it puts me right off the idea. Also when I have read others terrible stories I think my life isn't so bad after all.

    I am not recommending you do this but it helps me. x

    hi angela, your story shocked me but then i thought i was in the same position last year, desperately ill, no way of getting better, depressed and wanting end my life. i spoke to my counsellor at the time and sent him a message saying thanks for your help but i can"t do this any more. i left my husband a message to say that's it, by the time you get this message i will be dead. i left the door wide open and walked out. that was the worst day of my life. it shook my family to the core. i have never cried so much, i stared at a lake and thought i would be better off in there. it really didn't want to live. you keep talking the minute you stop, we'll do anything to check you're ok, bless you, i will say prayers for you.

      There sure is who calls us to relation shipwith him. If you see no point to life then at least live for God and try to do what he wants you to do. You will need to pay a lot less attention to what your fallen and cursed human nature wants though

      hi ya, thanks,, hang in there and richards comments was spot on. we do always look back, judge ourselves but we cant change anything. god has put us on this earth for a reason and i do believe we choose our own paths yes they can go extremely wrong, well mine has so many times but it is always a learning curve. the one thing i have finally learnt is to let go of the past and try to cherish everyday. its hard as i still suffer from depression and i do suffer from anerexia but i am getting treatment which really is helping. dont do what i have done and wasted the last 20 years on what ifs. life is too short and precious and i am trying to start a new chapter in my life. good luck xx
