Hi Elaine,

>>I don't understand what the "Samaritans" are. I assume some charity, but I've never heard of it.<<

I don't think muffy will mind if I jump in for a moment to explain...not the first time I've done it..;-)

Samaritans is a society/organization in the UK dedicated to - in a nutshell - reducing suicide in our society by providing 24/7 emotional support for those in **any** kind of distress, by phone, email, letter, chat, text, etc. They explain it much better than I could...here...

Safe and completely anonymous....they are very well thought of, as far as I know. Please consider contacting them when you are feeling so terribly alone. It won't be just like Babble (what could be? we're uniquely wonderful, right?), but similar in the idea that a supposed group of *strangers* cares so much to volunteer to be there at any hour to listen and talk to suffering people, including and especially those with suicidal thoughts. At least check out their website.

[There *is* a Christian charity organization called Samaritan's Purse, which you may have heard of or been thinking of....two different things, though.]

ElaineM, I haven't posted to you before, so I hope this isn't too abrupt of an entrance. I've been reading along with most all your posts so I do know your story. I have prayed for you, and am constantly amazed by your resilience and ability to give to others here, despite all the terrible emotional and physical pain you are in. You are a wonderful addtion to the Babble community. I don't know what else to say, but know there is at least one (and I'd imagine quite a few more, too) silent Babbler who cares even if I don't write a thing. I'll try to do better, but sometimes it seems everyone's 'said it all,' or I get to a thread too late....

((ElaineM)) - hold on, reread your T's card and know he'll be back...
