    I tried it again yesterday

    I had this suicide attempt planned for at least a month. I had it mentally rehearsed. I would pack my bags and leave a suicide note in my wallet. I also decided on the restaurant to go to for my last supper. As I had my dinner, I was getting more anxious. It peaked once I payed my bill. I went...

    Lost my Dad a couple days ago

    Thursday night/Friday morning, my wife woke me up about 1:30 in the morning saying 'You need to call your mom, something happened to your Dad.' I rushed out of bed and called my Mom immediately asking 'is he okay?'. My mom replied 'no'. I then asked if he was alive, and after asking a couple...

    Is honesty the best policy?

    So I recently came to a tough decision, one that could hurt a lot of people but its the right thing to do. I've always been told that bad people dont deserve to be around other people and I'm a bad person. I've hurt everyone I love over and over. So I have a date, I have the means to do it and...

    can't seem to get over what my ex did to me

    We were together for nearly a year, I was beginning to feel him becoming very distant, he wouldn't stay over when he came to visit, he had a busy job but was never making time for us to do stuff together as he was either at the pub or football matches at the weekends. One weekend I decided to...

    I'm no good

    Comrades, Despair is creeping in. My wife is at the end of her tether. She is a wonderful person and loves me. I am the cause of her unhappiness and it is killing me. I am mentally unable to carry out the work I studied five years for. It has been a step too far for me and I have let her and...

    After four years with someone, it can be said they know your BPD and know how to use it to their own advantage. (At least in my situation) It seems that when he sees I'm happy or content around a family member or someone other than him, he sets out to sabotage it. If I react to him in the way...
