Just to say a heartfelt thank you to MN users.

This week has been the hardest of my life.
I tried to kill myself and was stopped by my DP, i had plans to do it again the following night.

Everything was ready but for some reason I posted on here and the response I got was amazing,
and I was literally talked down from ending my life.

And all this week posters have been so supportive towards me.

So thank you MN so much thanks wine brew thanks wine brew thanks

I read some of your thread Pepsi and I'm so glad you are starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel. I've been where you are, and this gives me hope that were I to be again, I could ask for help here. x

I read your thread and you were clearly very distressed. I'm so glad to read this and you can see a glimmer of hope.

Remember, even after the darkest night, the sun will always rise. Thinking of you xx

I really hope you start to feel better soon. Just take it one small step at a time. You are much stronger than you realise xxx

Pepsi I hadn't seen any of your posts, and I'm sorry for that. I'm glad that you found help here.

I had serious pregnancy complications and always try to support others suffering from the sMe condition because first time round I had very little support.

Glad to hear it, hope you have some real life support in place and I am so pleased you found support here. Just keep going, one small step at a time.

I read your thread and have been thinking about you. So glad to hear this news.

I'm so glad you got the support you desperately needed. I lost a friend to suicide... her family will never, ever recover, yet she felt that she was ruining their lives.
Much love and keep posting.

I'm glad you are feeling more positive. My uncle committed suicide a couple of years ago and I wish he could have sought help.
Have you got a plan going forward?

Excellent love. Mumsnet is ace. Well done to you and keep posting.

That's amazing Pepsi.

I read your other thread and the love and support given by some of the amazing ladies was really tangible. So glad to hear you are in a better place now, thinking of you.

Amazing news grin

I saw your other thread. I've been wondering how you are. I'm so glad you are doing better and that you're still here. flowers

ithoughtofitfirst Thu 28-Aug-14 18:18:51

That's awesome. Understatement of the century. The one thing i've learned from going through the same hell of wanting to die is to just sit on it and try and hang in there as best you can. It can always get better. flowers
