  • Hey, we are all here to support you and will understand everything you are going through. I am so sorry that you are so desperate that it has come to attempting to take your own life, just so the pain would go. Be strong mate and you will get through it. Easy to say that when you are having a good day!!!!!! I have felt the same as you, been balling my eyes out and screaming that I need my Dr to help me. I feel like I am going potty!!!!!

    Have you ever tried meditation? My friend suggested it to me, I was a bit synical, however now it really helps and I am doing a course in it. Good luck and keep going, if not for you, then for your kids, they need you!!x

  • Hi Paul this is a similar situation to what my husband is going through at the moment read my profile and u will see what i mean , I am his wife and his carer and he is in agony everyday and hardly ever sleeps but he too is at a low point i cant begin to know what u are all going through and i wish i could take his pain away for him.

We are all in this online community to help and support each other. Please try and stay positive, if only for the sake of your children, they need you to stay around. I don't have a partner and I don't have any children. I joined this site because I had nowhere else to turn and it really does help:-) I too get frustrated with my G.P. & take strong painkillers like they were sweets. There is no easy answer to what you are going through. Please talk to your family and be honest about your feelings. Take care and stick with us:-)
