[TRIGGER] so depressed. don't know what else to say. feel like it's the end of the world. Tired of being put down at work, but can't be without my insurance. I don't want to live.

Hi BB, sorry you are feeling so low, just want to say there are alot of people here who care and are happy to support you, not judge and share experiences.

"I don't want to live" - please seek help offline, sorry I am not good at pulling up all the info but I know someone here will give it to you.

Hang on in there, keep sharing and let us support you

Dear BB,

I'm glad you reached out to us here.

Like Chez, I hope that this is just a stepping stone to picking up the phone and letting someone know you need help. Please call a crisis line if you need help keeping yourself safe.

I'm presenly going through withdrawl from my medicine. My head feels like it's ready to explode. I just feel so lost.
Mirabilis321 replied to beautifulbuffalo's response:
Hi, I'm miles away but wondered if it might help you to know that I found your earlier comments when i was looking for something to help me... Anyway I'm sorry you are feeling so lost today. Hang in there... keep trying to get help... Withdrawal from meds makes everything worse... I can't DO anything else but hope in some small way the fact that someone cares might help a tiny bit.

Hi BB, sorry you are suffering so much just now, can you go to the hospital to get some meds, from reading your other post you are not deliberately withdrawing. I don't know the american system but here in the uk we can use out of hour services to get meds, is that possible for you?
I am sorry that I can't help you more but want you to know that I am thinking about you and sending you well thoughts

Hey BB, if you ran out, perhaps you can go to the pharmacy and see if they can give you a couple until you can see your doctor again.

Hang in there....
