    Weary of life and just need to unload

    Hello all. I should start by saying, I don't need an intervention. I have no suicide plan. Suicide would distress my loved ones, whom I don't want to distress. Plus, I know of no method that seems sure enough, and I don't want to end up disabled or in a hospital. I should also say I've got...

    I don't go out much, as I " look vulnerable":rolleyes: And I am, it's true. A "little old lady", these days, as I shuffle along. We went to the local Co op today. It's a safe place, the staff are kind, and don't diddle me. Husband parked up, I said to him, "don't fuss, I'll only be a minute."...
