NEARLY THROWN IN THE TOWEL ON LIFE

twodayzgn posted:
This is the first time in my life that I've felt this close to throwing in the towel on life. I'm a christian and don't believe in suicide, but I am struggling against those thoughts these days. My whole world fell apart 5 years ago and I haven't been able to pick up all the pieces and put them back together again. Its like everything I knew, or thought I knew, about life got twisted and challenged. I stay in my bedroom 23 out of 24 hours a day staring at a TV screen or computer monitor. I have succombed to a phobia as well. I hate to even leave my house! While prayer helps to keep me sane, I could use some MAJOR help!!!

Hi two,

Have you ever thought of therapy? Seeing a phychologist or social worker? Therapy isn't just for someone who has a mental disorder. Lots of people go to therapy to figure things out and also learn new skills to help them with life in general.

I don't know what else to say But know that we do care here.
