I Nearly Died

but how many times? 119 People

    Yesterday, part of me really wanted to give in

    to my depression! Yesterday, I still worked a shift, but was determined to go home and end my life! I cried, stared and sweated my way through! Had a good nights sleep and feel 'ok' Very very scary!
