Hello there, this is Kitt and I am truly sorry you are going through a rough time. I am also concerned re your feelings of depression and I would like you to make an appointment with your physician to discuss your feelings of self harm.
Due to the anonymity of the site and the fact that this is a peer support group and not responsible for calling any authority on any member that threatens suicide, we strongly encourage members to call the hotline , 911, a family member or a friend, or to check themselves in to the local hospital emergency room.
I am going to post for you the same info I post in the Depression Forum and I do hope you follow through and seek help.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. You are worth much more.

Please know we care and we are here for you but do seek professional help as well.
You are an important person and the world is a better place because you live and serve within it.
Learn to take it one day at a time. Instead of worrying about
how you will get through the rest of the week or coming month, try to focus on today. Each day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning how to deal with your problems. Focus on the present and stop trying to predict what may happen next week. Next week will take care of itself. I have a 26 year history of anxiety and depression and I am living prove that you can learn to stay in the moment and not get stuck in anticipatory anxiety. Remember yesterday is gone, tommorow does not yet belong to us so stay in the moment, it is all we have.
I want you to be safe. (((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))
