    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    Candy,

    Why do you hate yourself and feel you are worthless?

    Why do you not want to live anymore?

    Of course it matters because YOU matter.

    You didn't get to this place overnight and it's going to take time and working regularly with your therapist (which I know you're doing) for things to improve. But you're already getting there, Dem.

    Remember to breathe and if you need help keeping yourself safe, please call your t or a crisis line and let them help you.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    Kate_Te replied to candykissesaresweet's response:
    Dem,
    have you spoken with your T in the last couple of days? I'm sure he could help you with some of the pain. I know it hurts not having your niece, but that will work itself out. You have your son who depends on you & you are an amazing mother. It's ok to feel miserable about what happened, but like Fran does every couple of weeks here, maybe you could do a gratitude list & start with your gratitude for your son, then go on from there.

    Just sort of remind yourself why you matter!

    ((((Dem))))

    Candy,

    Pain of any kind sucks.And being on one's own in trying to deal with that pain does as well. Is there no one you could have come be with you?

    If you were to kill yourself, how would you ever know whether or not you could see your niece again? The future is not written yet. And as Dem stated, you have a son who loves and needs you.

    I struggle daily with the do I die so as to live, or do I live and feel dead. Thankfully people here on this message board have given me the strength, each time as of late, to keep going.

    Please if you can not find anyone to come be with you, reach out, call a peer line, hot line, go to a church, an ER, etc... It's okay to seek help and to need help as I am learning myself.

    Hugs to you.
