    I Wish I Could

    I am afraid of the pain. I know it shouldn't be long, but what if something goes wrong? How do you stop what you started? I want to find the courage, and I look for it every day. It is all becoming too much to handle.

    Who Cares Out There Still?

    No one even cares to comment about ANYTHING is this group.  Do we all just die before we even get a chance to help one and other? I just can't believe there isn't any goodwill in humanity left.  Who out there still cares?

    I really want to die.

    I think about death all the time. I've tried therapy and pills. Nothing works. I'm just too cowardly to actually pull it off. I hope that one day I will be able to let go of my cowardice and end my pain once and for all.

    Nothing is getting better. In fact, it's spiraling out of control and getting worse. I can't help anyone or myself. I'm useless and can't do anything that has a purpose. Pain is brought upon others by my continuation of life and I can't take it anymore.
