This morning... still dark out...went for a long walk to try to feel better
Less hopeless/ less like a loser

things coming at me and my wife are about to get
Much worse ( if that’s even possible)

I wanted to take my own life
I couldn’t even do it
I fucking can’t even do that correctly

Not taking your own life WAS the right choice, friend.

Why are things so bad for you right now?

Have you spoken to your doctor today? I think you need to.

Do you have any support from friends and family?

Doctor?

I don't know if the below number is helpful but please reach out for help. These times tend to come back over and over again and so it is important to find a place that can help make sure you don't end up in that place again.

I have been there and i am so relieved that i am alive now, but i am also very surprised i am still alive. I wasn't in my right mind, very depressed.

It is NOT normal to feel this way. It is a big sign to you.

I wanted to take my own life

I didn’t have the fucking guts to go through with it
I couldn’t do it
I was crying the whole time
I’m crying as I write this


I have been no support to my wife and family during this terrible time
I’m just someone that’s broken they need to worry about while their lives are also terrible

I’m sorry to hear you are feeling so bad Mike, it would be good trying to seek help.

You are struggling and it could be good getting support so you can pull through these tough times.

We are here for you.
Hugs

Maybe you did not end your life because deep down a part of you did not want to. I understand the despair you are feeling. I think you are being so hard on yourself, Mike. You are feeling sad and you are in emotional pain. You need kindness not to bully yourself.

You feel bad you are not able to support your family right now. That is because you are in too much emotional pain yourself. This does not make you a failure. If we feel depressed it is too hard to be able to care for ourselves let alone others.

i know it doesnt make sense...thats why were all here on this forum right? Because we dont think rationally all the time?

My close friend from this forum... that has already saved me a couple times...told me its time to start fighting.

But thats the catch -22 right?
Getting help...seeking therapy, help lines...

Those are all POSITIVE acts ....
The solutions to all this requires Positive thinking actions and thoughts.

I dont have any of that at all

I could see it in my wifes eyes last night how exaustive a burden it must be to deal with crisis and also have to worry about me and my negative outlook.
It crushed me when I saw that in her.
It has to be a terrible burden to live with messed up people adding to already bad situations

I do not think you are being a burden. Your wife loves you and it hurts to see you feel so sad. That is love not a burden.

With getting support rather then think of it as you have to think positive could you see it as it is just something you are going to try? Like, I will call the doctor. Rather then think too deeply.

There will be better days for you. Your situation is not permanent. It will pass.

Music helps me. Music therapy or listening to good and uplifting songs on youtube makes me feel and think better.

Also doing what I love to do which is writing helps me too. What do you love to do? What are you good at? Is it cooking, baking, gardening, doing arts and crafts? Do it and it will make you happy and even be successful.
