  2. I’ve been wanting to die for a while. Today ive packed my bag with everything i need to go. I tried to take an overdose before, i was scared, this time round im 21 and not scared. Ive been sexually used by my bf of 4 years, on my 21st i found out he’d been chaeting for months. I have just left after 2 years of uni, I have had a lot of problems with my my biological parents, my mother is a manic depressive and i have never lived with her. My bf was my pillar of support through my personal problems, and now i just cant cope.

  3. Karen,
    Last night I read an amazing piece written by Sylvia Browne, in a book called THE OTHER SIDE AND BACK.
    On page 74….she writes ” Tools of protection. I use them everyday. I recommend that everyone use them everyday…..They are a constant reminder that at your core you are sacred, eternal spirit, created by God. His genetic heir…….page 75
    Remember, what ever you “accept,” you’re declaring “acceptable.” In my situation, once I caught on to my own false-ego urge to win and reconnected with my own “I am” and my own divine God center-and, even more, the God centers of my two beautiful children, who deserve a safe and happy a home as I could offer them.”

  5. Hello,

    My ex husband, my son’s father died on July 18th of this year. It was my fault you see I left him. I left him along, all alone and he killed himself. My kids don’t deserve a mother like me, I can’t even get a decent job to support them. The only reason that I am still here after the 3 months that it has been since my exhusband died is that up unti this point I have not had the guts to do any thing about it. But as time goes by I realize that things are never going to get any better. I am not crazy or disturbed mentally. I am a college educated, hard working individual that honestly sees no better future in site and frankly I am sick and tired of trying with nothing good ever happening.
