Welcome to Healing Well.
When I was in hospital with depression I shared a room with somebody just like you and when I read your post you reminded me of her so much.
Our minds can only deal with so much stress and sooner or later we get to the point where we can't deal with it anymore. It sounds like you have got to the point where you cannot deal with what is going on in your life and I don't blame you.
The way you describe the feeling of a dark hole is a classic symptom of somebody with depression. I felt like I was in a dark hole and I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel.
It sounds like you are an amazingly strong woman to have coped with this for so long and there is help out there for you. I hope you can find it in you to get the help to escape this.
Please see your doctor to recieve help for your depression and I think some therapy will definatley benefit you. Please think of yourself and please post here anytime you need to talk and get things off your chest.
We are here for you.
Take care and god bless
You are in my thoughts and prayers xx

Please keep us informed on how you are doing. And I know it will not be easy,but tell someone. If it is the Doctor,your best friend or a family member. A little secret here... when the man knows that someone else is aware of what he is doing I think it makes them stop and think about doing it again. My ex got away with it for all of those years because he knew that I was too afraid and embarrased to tell anyone. He had me right where he wanted me. Don't let that continue with you. I to this day kick myself for not telling someone.
Good Luck and keep your head up.
