ok, so i found this forum and thought that it couldn't hurt to write.
I am in a really bad place right now, i have had a really bad year and things just keep happening that make me wonder whats the point.  I was driving my friends truck today ( i have to pick her up from the airport tomarrow) and was crossing this bridge and all i could think about was if i floor it would i go right through the barrer fall in to the water, or would the barrer hold and i would just smash into it. and if i did it would it hurt?  would anyone really care, would anyone come to the furneral, and what would that say?  Julie, the poor girl who was left by everyone when she was 16, Who got married at 19 thinking that she would finally have her everafter and have the family she never could have but only to have it taken away from her 9 years later when he found someone eles. then 4 months later still now emotional stable he takes her son away, HOPEING that she might kill herself (he actually said that to me) who then finds her dad and moved to be with him, hoping that she had finally found her place in life, and a parent who loved her, only to find out that he is abusive, thinks julie is stupid for her ways of thinking, who then after 2 months says that julie wasnt the daughter he thought she was going to be and kicks her out, leaving her all over again. Is that what they would say?
Whats the point of going on?  I mean really, I have one friend..ONE..  my son is doing fine, he has a new mommy, and every time i talk to him he just calls me julie he doesnt even think of my as mommy anymore. 
I have thoughts of running into polls and driving off bridges and cliffs all the time, I was on a balcony of a 4 story building and all i wanted to do was jump... these thoughts are not normal, but i can't make them go away!!
Edit:  Stop the stinkin thinkin and kick it to the curb.  Turn your thinking around. You can control your thoughts. Quit with the scenarios your running through you head. Go for a long walk...........if you need to call 911

Hi Julie,

You need to think of your son, can't you get him back living with you?? or at least spend more time with him?? It sounds like life has been hard for you recently, you need to think about how well you have done to come this far, the worst is over! Have you been to speak to your doctor about how you are feeling? or tried any counselling. I think it would really help you. Maybe you could also try meeting new people through a hobby or interest?

You should defn. talk to someone, a doctor, or counselor. They could really help you. You are having abnormal thoughts, so logically the right thing to do would be to get help for those thoughts. You do need to think of your son. Im sure he loves you very much. How would he feel if you walked out of his life by taking your own? Taking your life isnt what you want to do...trust me on this, dont act on those thoughts. You need to talk to someone immediately. Maybe find a support group or try a new hobby. Try getting out of the house and meeting new people somehow. Try something you new. Go to the library and read. If it werent winter I would suggest a garden! Those work wonders! Try painting, or drawing, make things with your hands. Get involved in something. Go to a movie with your friend you mentioned.

Do you work? Do you see your son ever?

Well, in the mean time...go see a doctor or counselor. You could use someone to talk to about this and they can provide the help you need. We will be here for you. Post anytime you would like! We will be your support system and your friend! You are NOT alone anymore. You have us to talk to and we will do our best to help you as much as possible, but we can only do so much, we are professionals! Just people who know what its like to deal with this stuff and more! Best of luck and keep in touch, Take Care!

Hello and welcome, I am Kitt.

I am so sorry for your problems but I suspect there are some things you are holding back. Please read Rule Number one and do refrain from talking of driving into bridges. sad

I lost your story somewhere when you husband took your son and he has a new Mommy.

I agree with Karen, you are very depressed and you need help.

Please use the crisis lines or call 911 or just go to an ER.

We are here to support you but you need professional help and I would ask you to reach out to one of the phone lines now.

Call your friend, I would bet she has a cell phone. somtimes just hearing the voice of someone who cares about you helps.

We will all be keeping you in our prayers

Gentle Hugs
