last year i was accused of manslaughter. I did not commint any crime what so ever! i was arrested in jan of last year and was held in custody for 2 months and then was granted bail. I have to live with a surety until my trial, wich will be in august. Im feeling overwhelmed of the whole situation. I havent been sleeping my nights, been feeling really sick. Worried that i may do time for 5 years and i have two kids. I've talked to counsellors. It worked for awhile until i decided to overdose on prescription drugs and ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks. I dont know were to turn to, im just afraid that i might do someting stupid.. please help me!

Hi Bellax,

First of all, welcome to the forum. I want to provide you with some resources just incase you need them.

Update Resource Numbers and Website Links:

U.S. Helplines

National Suicide Hotline

1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)

This is a combined network of the Amerian Association of Suicidology, the National Hopeline Network, CONTACT USA, and many other organizations. Call are automatically routed to the nearest crisis center to the phone from which the call for help is placed.

NDMDA Depression Hotline | Support Group. 800-826-3632

Suicide Prevention Services Crisis Hotline 800-784-2433

I don't know what all your situation pertains to, but do you have a lawyer? This is a little too heavy for the forum. We will help you with support, but I think a lawyer is in order for you.

I hope that you can get some help soon.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Bellax

Please take Karen's advice and ring the numbers she has given you, they will surely be able to help you. It sounds very serious and you have probably got a lawyer or legal aid by now. You have to remember your children, if you did something to yourself what would happen to them? What sort of life would they have without you?

I hope it all goes well for you. Please let us know how you are.

If you didn't commit any crime, then why would you be worried about going to jail?
