Saw my Dad yesterday he is almost 85 and hasn't be very well keeps saying he has had enough when I was in hospital he came to see me and attended CPA meeting where I shared with him that wished I was dead. He does his best to understand me but comes out with statements like I need to get out meet people I spend to much time on my own, I know I do but it is how my life is and there is not a day goes by when I don't think ending my life and why the hell did they save me back in 2014.

Sorry to hear you are feeling so down.
Maybe because of your dad's age he doesnt understand, there wasnt a lot about mental illness back in those days. Its only relatively new that now its being discussed and supported by media campaigns etc . I dont think he ever will. and thats sad for you.
Keep strong,
Hugs to you

so sorry madmum

I made a very serious suicide attempt at 13 and sometimes I think I succeeded

Ive been dead all this time, just walking about sucking up oxygen and the Tax Payers Coin.

:sorry:
