Dear shar and tina,
I just read some of the follow-ups to tina's first post. I'm so sorry to hear that times are so tough right now for the both of you.
shar, why do you say,"Gotta wait til you're 50 to do the deed. Before then (especially nowadays) miracles can happen" Why don't you think miracles can happen after the age of 50? I always thought that possibilites ended at the age of 40. I'm older than that now, and my life has never been so good. I'm wondering what makes your situation so desperate? Forgive me if you've explained it before, I haven't been here for quite some time.
I remember receiving a lot of help from you when I posted here regularly, and the thought of you having suicide notes all written up really pains me.
The same is true for you. I remember receiving support from you, and it hurts me to know you're feeling so troubled. I remember all too well what it feels like. Sometimes I get depressed lately, but fortunately, the episodes are brief. Then again, I'm not under a lot of stress these days. I wish I could offer more support. Please know that you are a valued person who would be greatly missed if you decided to end it. I encourage you to talk more about your conflicts. It's not whiny. It's constructive.
