I'm surprised nobody has replied to your post yet. Because I hear your post as best I can. I understand your situation even if no significant other has pulled that on me before. I feel pretty hopeless about helping you because I have no clue where you live around. Even if I did, I'm not the sugar daddy type.

Check yourself into a mental health facility ASAP. Your life is more precious than gold and killing yourself is not an acceptable response. Life has many troubles we have to work through not opt out of. Be a conqueror and show him your strength in sustanance. This will start by seeking medical help. If he left you there is someone else out there but you have to be OK with Stacy before seeking a friend. Medication can help and psych. care givers will show empathy if you work towards a positive goal. How can you help others well serve the community in some way. The size ot the job is not important it is important to be on a job. If you develop a plan for your life let others fall into it & don't be heart broken if they step out of it. Use your inner power and find a support network. you need to talk with either a counselor or others in general about the dillema through this you will find an answer not death.

Death is an easy out but beware the cost. You don't come back from that journey. It is a permanent damnation not vacation. You need rest and possibly you can find that in a hospital. Don't let the stereo type of a psych ward scare you. It will strengthen you but give it time. SEEK HELP!

I am not that good on giving advice, but I just logged on here and saw your post and I AM SO SORRY. I understand how you feel, as I have been there not wanting to deal with issues anymorer . I would love to be able to come to you right now and give you a hug and say "shhhhhhhhhh, it's going to be alright", but I can't. I am taking it that you aren't very old? I am 56 and want to be there for you. I divorced 8 years ago , with nothing to basically live on. I was forced to make decisions, changing how I lived, my job, and I found I was stronger than I thought I was. I wouldn't be in here if I was totally happy, but I've realized everyone is here to help each other. There are many people in here that have supported me, and I know I was really down and out one week-end, and someone responded that this is pretty quiet over the week-ends. I know if this was during the week, you would have had many more responses. (I've learned that, by experience). Do you have parents, siblings, friends you could go to? If not PLEASE go to the hospital. I am actually crying for you, as I feel your pain just through what you wrote. You DONT need anymore pills, you need HELP AND SUPPORT. You were put on this earth for a reason Stacy. I know, we all wonder why at times. CALL SOMEONE NOW!!!!

You DO NOT want to harm yourself. You sound young. YOu have your whole life ahead of you. You need to take care of yourself. Things will look brighter. We on this board are here for you and want to help. Please let us into your world and tell us a little about yourself. It will help to talk to someone. If you don't want to, that's okay too, but PLEASE don't harm yourself. You actually do more harm than it's worth. I tried 4 years ago and am still trying to make up the hurt I caused others. Please respond so I know you are alright. HUGS
