shift



I dance around a lot of things on my blog. I try to be honest but am scared to be completely real. I don't want to be unpopular, to make people sad, or to be written off so I stay aloof in what is really going on.

The real truth is I have been dealing with suicidal thoughts for years. I had my first suicidal thought at twelve years old. Some days they are extremely intense, other days they are almost nonexistent. Currently, I am in a bad place. I am very suicidal and am trying to stay alive. That is really my only goal. I have a good support system and a plan to stay safe, but it's exhausting and the hardest thing I have ever gone through.

Did you know that in the US more people die of suicide than motor vehicle accidents? I was totally shocked when I found this out. It breaks my heart that there are so many people out there suffering with suicide and feeling so hopeless.

Suicide is something people are afraid to talk about. I want to change that. Even though right now I am scared to post this, if I could give one person hope for just a few minutes than it is worth it.

I went years untreated for my depression and suicidal thoughts. For the first years of our marriage Ronald and I had no idea what was going on and I thought I was losing my mind. I was afraid to tell people how bad things were and I thought I would be giving up and be seen as weak if I got help. I'm lucky to have sought help. It really has saved my life. Even though now I am still fighting, I am alive right now and that is something.

I am going to start being more honest here. I feel like I need to do this. I need to be purposeful and real. Things will be a bit more intense around here as this isn't easy to talk about and isn't something to be taken lightly. But I am tired of pretending I am okay when I'm not. I'm tired of adding to the stigma by remaining silent. I'm tired of acting like this isn't an issue for us as a family, society, culture.

If you are having issues with suicidal thoughts, this is a great place to seek help.

Here's to hope, C

  1. I think it's great you want to be more honest. Personally the way you post makes me feel lucky to not be alone. There is no one else (besides Joe) that I have been honest with about anxiety and what not. I know you struggle and fight hard and I think that's amazing, but the fact you are willing to share it is beyond that. I struggle with a lot of the same feelings/things you do and it is comforting to not feel alone. I think it's great that you want to be more honest. And I like that when you're happy you share that too.

    3. Hello everyone, my name is Elisa Keily I am so overwhelmed with joy all thanks to Dr Raypower spell. my husband left me for another woman few years back and I was very devastated cause I never did anything wrong to him, I was left with my two kid and a job that pays little.i was almost giving up until I saw a testimony online about Dr Raypower and I decided to contact him.i explained my problem to him and he assured me I'll see a positive result after 24hurs, surprisingly my husband came back the day after the spell begging me to forgive him and promised to never leave. My husband has been back for 6 months now and we've never had any issues, am glad I didn't doubt Dr Raypower cause he sure can solve any problems with fast relief you can also contact him for help now

  2. I'm in the same place Catherine :( When I'm like this I find the best thing is to try not to shut myself off from people... sometimes my connections with other people feel like the only ties I have to living... We will get through this though.. I hope you are feeling much better soon!! xx

  3. Thank you for being brave and sharing. I think more people have been in this mindset (including myself at one point in my life) than anyone would ever know. It's so important to share what you are feeling, because no one should ever have to take their own life. Life is hard, but it's all we have and it's too important to throw away.

  4. To all of you who are honest and supportive, I love and appreciate you. I have had suicidal thoughts. But the love and support of a good man kept me going. I pray his son does the same for you, dear girl. You know I love you dearly.

  8. you are not alone honey, I have been like that too and it started all of a sudden. I think my mind just gave up of being strong and of fighting. I take sertraline to help me and sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. Whats worst is I can feel it coming and cant stop it. I have had bad, bad thoughts even of killing my self. Its very hard to pretend everything is all right when its not. Right now I am doing ok and I hope it stays that way. I am here for you if you need in any way. thanks for listening and I love you and hope you get better soon

  9. Thanks so much. I hide a lot of my feelings foe fear of being judged or pitied. I hate that more then anything. I always to seem strong and so I say I am always ok but lately I haven't been ok. I have been struggling a whole lot and what you write helps because I cant do that yet. Its hurts so much to see my self this way and because of the kiddos I have to be strong. Thanks for always being there and never changing your feelings. I love you so much. as a sister loves. Hope you are better now and I hope Ron is home soon.

  10. Hi everyone, my name is Abbie Moore, am from the United States . I want to share my wonderful testimony on how I got back my husband back, who I sworn ever to be with until when he left me to another woman for no reason and I try to make things work for both of us yet things where getting worse and I love him so much and there is nothing I could do to get my husband back until I saw a testimony share by a woman called Lauren from Australia on the internet talking about a powerful spell caster called DR. WALE, who brought her husband back within 24hours, so I decide to give it a try and to my greatest surprise he also did it for me just as he did for Lauren and I have a lot of people complaining of fake spell caster but this one I met was a real spell caster who help me to solve my problem I have no solution to, I introduce many of my best friends that have a similar problems, and their problem were solve with the great help of DR. WALE, who help them to get back their lovers within 24 hours. I am so happy that my husband is back to me again, and the most surprising thing is that our love is very strong, every day is happiness and joy. and there is nothing like been with the man you love. I am so happy my love is back to me with the help of DR. WALE. if you have similar problem I will advice you to contact him, he is there to help you and put a smile on your face as he did to me and others you can also WhatsApp him +1(978) 406-9575 or Email him at : everlastingspellcast@gmail.com or view his website for more review https://everlastingspellcaster.website2.me/contact
