    My youngest sister was bipolar who eventually took her life five yrs. ago. I was so angry with her for a long time wondering how she could do this to her family . It’s a continuing struggle for me, but with therapy I realized it wasn’t about our family. She just wanted out of her pain . I’m no longer mad at her. She was the most beautiful, educated, funny person I ever knew yet she suffered horribly .Ultimately she made this decision. I applaud those who can fight this disease and live a happy and productive life. If only she could have.

    I wanted to commit suicide a few times now. My famiy and the community here ,just said I was trying to get attention. I almost went to prison , some women here said I held her hostage in her car = No I did not !! Then when I showed the Astoria ,Oregon Courthouse my proof !! All of them ignored me !! I became homeless , I was turned down by every community resource place herw where I live ! I am called crazy because I have depression ! I also had a traumatic domestic violence attack — I almost died ,and left my four childern.. Nothign was done to my abuser !! I even had my restraining order in effect !! i was called a liar on/about the abuse — then I was called a liar again on the alleged hostage :(( I was denied a court appointed attorney !! And the officer lied and made allegations I never did !! And the officer had no proof in court !! The officer said he dont need proof , and the attending judge blamed me for someone harassing me.. And the women is smart and rich and they believed her over my proof !! And no one said we are sorry !! I been through hell and back !! No one should have to go througth this alone — when we feel alone enough as it is already in this world.. Thank You Wilma Ingram.

    Its unfair just because I am different ! I havent slept good for like 20 years now. The system here now id finally trying to fox the mental health issues here —- only after I threatenened to sue Astoria,Oregon. and the State of Oregon.. Apparently the system here thinks it’s ok to harass and mental and emotional abuse the mental patietns here !! They keep doing ot to me !! I may possibly have bi -polar too .

      I’m so sorry about what you are going through..

      I know how you feel, so alone I feel that way alot too. Ecspeclly when you are getting blamed for something you didn’t do. Just remember that there is hope! Suicide is a permant sultion to a temporary problem. There are so many people out there that truly love and care about you. Even if you don’t feel like it now, there is! Remember hope! Rescue Is Possibe! <3

    I have major depression, Schizophrenia, bipolar, ADHD, and have been a cutter for 9 years. I feeling that im falling back into my deep depression, I’m starting to Isolate myself from my friends and family, I’m getting made fun of were ever I go because I am a lesbian, and people have spread so many rumors about me I have girls comming up to me at stores and asking if I want to kiss them. The guys torment me, that I am a lesbian but I still look like a girl, asking me why I don’t have a penis yet. I have no friends that are girls because they are scared that i might “put a move on them” I get laughed at because of my halusonations, ( because I end up talking back to them) My own family will sit there and tell me how much of a freak I am and should be locked in a nut house. My dad tells me over and over again to walk away from him in public because he’s afride that I might start talking to myself. I feel like no one wants me around, I tell my family it hurts me by what they say, they never say sorry. I’m an 18 year old girl that has a broken heart that just wants glue to put it back together. I feel so alone, I ask myself dayliy why I’m still here. But don’t have an answer. When I get tormented by people I never cry in front of them, I refuse to give them that satisfaction, but I beleive what they say, and take it out on myself. I try to pertend that everything will be okay, hiding behind a smile every day. I just need someone there for me…
