Struggling through the day

It is difficult for me to make it through the day. I have depression and anxiety for 15 months now. 4 weeks ago I attempted suicide, but gave up because I stabbed myself about 20 times and did not not bleed out. I am fearful that committing suicide might cause me to be sent to hell. The days pass by slowly and the night, sleep time pass quickly. At least sleep gives me a break. I look forward to going bed at night and dread getting up the next morning to start another day.

Hi John, my heart hurts for you. Depression and anxiety can be so debilitating. Have you been to an inpatient psychiatric hospital? Are you being followed by a doctor? There are also intensive outpatient treatment centers. You are not alone, I’m so glad you joined this site. So many others have experienced similar to you. Have you seen any videos on YouTube by Douglas Bloch? I highly recommend you look him up. All the best to you ❤️

You sound like me. I have a wonderful life and was so happy until about 15 months ago when I suffered a trauma. I have lost all motivation for living despite having the best husband and children on earth. I also can’t wait to go to bed at night however even then there is no peace as I have insomnia. Not sure what to do.
