Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 204 People

    Not Done Yet.

    There are people out there who push me away from death. They want me to live. They will me to keep going, no matter how tired I am. Some of them have no idea that they are my motivation. I see their faces in the blade of my knife. I hear their voices. I can't hurt them by leaving...

    I seem to have given up.

    I no longer dream or plan, just going through the motions. I want my spirit back, to live, enjoy. Feeling so old.

    Fitting Words From A Song

    "Many times I've tried to tell you. Many times I've cried alone. Always I'm surprised how well you cut my feelings to the bone. Don't want to leave you really. I've invested too much time. To give you up that easy ...to the doubts that complicate your mind...." Knowing you...
