I Feel Like Giving Up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,315 People

    Sometimes life just feels like it's not worth

    living...my feelings don't match my circumstances or vice versa. I've lived through a lot of terrible things and when I start to feel like this I count my blessings and remind myself how fortunate I am. But I'm human and sometimes I really do want to just give up.

    Just let me fade away.

    People like me don't deserve endings, happy or otherwise. I can't do this anymore. I can't bear this burden any further. I am so tired, so cold... all alone in this world. Just let me fade away. Let's put an end to this charade.

    I just got off of the phone with my niece,

    Granny's Words of Wisdom...

        My Grandma used to have a picture of this horrible-looking, battle-scared, old tom cat, and under it, the caption read : "If it's not rats, it's fleas!"  I feel like that some days.  I wrote in another forum, that at times, I feel...

    Ready For Help

    I can't stand this anymore. I'm ready to be done with life or get the help I need. I have no money & I don't know how to get in-patient help or where to go. I just can't take it anymore & it's not fair to my daughter.

    I'm not someone to give up

    I'm giving myself until next March - exactly

    one year. If I don't match in residency then, that's it for me. I buy a handgun on a credit card, and that's it. The effort trying isn't worth the outcome I'm getting so far. No pity/sympathy - I'm just writing this to hold myself to my word when I read it again one year from...

    School year is almost over

    and it's put so much pressure on me to maintain the grade I have. It's a struggle when every hard work you put in, every sleepless night of study you put in won't show up the same amount in your test. When you put in all the hard work but that hard work is not enough. You go to...
