Shrug nonchalantly

And empty the bank account

Buy Microsoft shares

"you poor poor poor thing. Cry all you want and don't let anyone tell you you always have to be strong"

LEAVE. No job is worth waking up with suicide on the brain for. Just leave.

Things will change, they'll get much, much better and as unlikely as it seems, you won't even remember the pain you feel now.

^^ yes this, totally!

I reached my absolute rock bottom at the beginning of September last year - years and years of untreated depression coupled with the breakdown of my marriage and I couldn't see any way forward.

With help, lots of it, and amazing medication, I am recovering better than I ever thought possible. No way I could've envisaged that I would be at this point back then.

This too shall pass...and you will survive smile

Don't worry, one day soon you will leave him.

Go to the Doctor. Its not that scary, and the pills work.

Blankiefan Fri 21-Mar-14 20:30:30

It gets so much better - more than you'd possibly believe right now.

you will be Happy won't be the same kind of happy but you will be happy.

redrubyindigo Fri 21-Mar-14 20:30:54

I would laugh and say 'you stupid cow you really thought that it/he was that important!'

My divorce.

Tell someone you need help.


I did that, but i still wish i'd asked for help before then.

Yes he is autistic - and severely - it will change your life in many ways - bad AND good. It will become your normality rather than something scary. He will still be happy, smiley & very affectionate & he will make you very proud.

TeaAndALemonTart Fri 21-Mar-14 20:34:52

Hold on you're going to be okay.

expatinscotland Fri 21-Mar-14 20:36:39

Nothing at all. What do you say to yourself as your child loses her struggle to live, because the lowest point was the night my daughter died. My life is RUINED. No matter how far I go, no matter what happens, I will never, ever be fully happy again. I can fake, and do, and in time there is even the chance of contentment and certainly a measure of peace, but I know from everyone else much farther down the line, it is never as happy as it was when they were here. Everything is tinged.

HopelessDei Fri 21-Mar-14 20:37:17

Let him go. He doesn't love you. You deserve someone who does.

stillenacht Fri 21-Mar-14 20:37:32

Your autistic boy will speak to you. He will call you mummy. He will ask for things. Potty training may take a while longer. You will accept this life you can't bear to think about now. The world won't always be grey like it is now. It will become a new norm.

EyeoftheStorm Fri 21-Mar-14 20:38:03

In the NICU, I wish I could have known he would walk and talk and sing 'I love you, Mummy' all the way to nursery.

EyeoftheStorm Fri 21-Mar-14 20:38:55

Oh shit Expat, it's so unfair.

Edenviolet Fri 21-Mar-14 20:40:56

Nobody has the right to force you into this. Don't do it just walk out of the hospital and go home.

HopelessDei Fri 21-Mar-14 20:41:39

Oh god Expat. Cross posted. I wouldn't have posted after reading yours - because there can't be a lower point than that ever. I'm so sorry for your loss.

pictish Fri 21-Mar-14 20:42:15

You need to start thinking an awful lot more of yourself.

MammaTJ Fri 21-Mar-14 20:42:26

'Do not actually have a baby with the man who just told you you 'should be over it' 10 days post MC.
