    47. Wow. Dang cigs never killed me.

    Seroquel and cigs almost did. But i had caring pals by 38. Who said go to er or be disowned. Dang my caring soul bites me at times. But they were worth keeping. Me misses both. Sigh.

    Ever since I was seven years old I would plan

    out my own suicide and/or suicide attempts. I'm 14 now and when I was younger I'd always tell myself that I'd never live to see the day I graduate middle school and I did that a few months ago. But the age I keep telling myself that I'll be dead by is 18. I made it this far and...

    When I was in high school I suffered from some

    serious depression. I thought I would end up killing myself before I was even 20. I'm 20 now, and have come a long way. But I'm not sure what exactly I'm supposed to do now. I never planned what I wanted to do after high school or anything and I'm feeling a little bit lost now.

    And I'm Only 28.

    Truly, I never thought I'd be alive this long.  And I'm only 28.  It's not because I'm a daredevil or physically sick either.  It's just that, I told myself when I was 16, that if I was as unhappy in 10 years as I was then, I'd kill myself.  And I was...

    And I'm 18 :)

    I remember when I was in my GCSE years I was utterly convinced I would never take my GCSEs. I had absolutely no doubt that before I took the exams, I would have killed myself.   But I didn't.   Then there were the exams in college that I just took. In the...

    Still Amazed

    I lived my 20s firmly planted in the fast lane. Worked in Hollywood for all the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Fast cars, motorcycles, house and too much money to spare. Needless to say I don't remember much of the 80s. Every concert that rolled through I was at...
