I'm really sorry to read things are that bad. It must take constant will power to hold yourself together.

It's not going to be forever. The pain will relent and you will be able to endure.

If you haven't already, reach out to people you can talk to in person, or consider one-on-one therapy. We will be here to listen when you need us, but having someone physically present is a better alternative.

You have a lot of stuggle happening at the same time. Now is the time to reach out for support from those you could count on.

Keep reminding yourself of the qualities you like about yourself. Work on trying to reassure yourself that you do have good things to offer, regardless of how difficult the present may be. Know that you will have the opportunity to find excitement, fulfillment and happiness, you just have some tough things to deal with for now. But it's going to be worth pushing through, it's going to be worth going out on a limb for a sympathetic ear, and it's going to he worth seeking the good things to remind yourself you possess.


Avoid drinking, or anything else that might make you vulnerable. An impaired state of mind will only amplify those negative thoughts and emotions. If it's difficult to steer your train of thought, find ways to keep your hands and your mind busy.
