i tryed drinking myself to death after the man i was in love with and was supposed to marry baet me up and then told me that he wasn't in love with me right now but in a way i think it was a good thing i did. they sent me to a mental health hospital where i was put back on my zoloft for my anxiety and depression. i want to thank all the ppl that replied to my previous posts for your efforts to help me. i spent a week in that hospital about 3 weeks ago. i was sent home with a new lease on life. when i returned the man i was engaged to tryed to tell me that he loved me but i knew it wasn't true in a way i always knew that. i feel stronger now than i ever have before. for the first time in  my life i am focusing on me and only me. no more trying to fix everyone else's life and ignoring my own. i never allowed myself to grieve my daughter because there was no one there to hold me up. i was too busy holding up my ex and my family. i am now taking that time for myself. i left my ex. telling him only that when he left me alone in that emergency room i found myself again and that i knew now that he wasn't strong enough to be there for me. so i wasn't going to continue our relationship. i left him standing in our living room packed my things and moved out. i feel amazing now. my meds leveled out and my life feels like it is falling back together instead of falling apart. for the first time in my life i am strong enough to hold myself up, and my family is there for the moments in which i am weak. thank you all for all the support. i will be posting again soon.
i will leave you now with one of my new found favorite quotes
"sometimes you must fall into weakness before you can find your greatest strength"
thank you

You have been to the bottom of the pit and now you have climbed to the top where life is good.  You have done excellent in recognizing that you are ther only one that can take care of you first.  You cannot change another person so be very proud of yourself.

You will run into bumps in the road but I think you have found your own source of strength and your family is there for you so you will get over the bumps.

Bless you and keep posting to us.  We support you

You have come so far over the past few weeks, you should be so proud of yourself as you have acheived so much! I like your quote & i think that it is very true! I see it around me all the time.

Hi Southerngirl,

I am so glad that you left this man. He doesn't deserve you. You are too special to let him beat you up like that. In fact it infuriates me to think he put his hands on you. I just replied to another post where the man was hitting the woman. There is no excuse for that, and I am so glad that you are out of the relationship.

Keep posting here with us. We will be your rock while you are getting yourself picked up above the surf. We are here for you. Don't ever forget that.

Luv and hugs, Karen
