Struggling. Googled suicide. Feel like my DD would be better off without me

Just feel like I can't cope. Struggled previously but clawed my way back to feeling ok. Now something else has happened and I feel like I'm back at square one and I don't have the strength left to get back to being ok. Not sure why I'm posting really.

I'm glad you are posting here, because it shows that your mind hasn't been fully made up yet. I hope you don't choose that route. I don't have the most excellent advice for you- I hope someone comes along who does- but I know what lives are like for the people left behind after a suicide.

And it's not something you wish to leave the people you love with. Please rethink your thoughts and please see your GP or reach out to the Samaritans.

Sending out my best wishes to you and hope you find your strength xx

I don't have to strength to actually phone the Samaritans.

Your DD will not be better off if you kill yourself. The DC of parents who died when they were young suffer greater instances of poor mental health when older. Where a parent has taken their own life, this number increases even further.

Please call the Samaritans.

Can I please bump this in the hopes more people can offer some advice for OP.

You need to go to the doctors tomorrow for medicine. This is because your brain is designed to solve problems. You feel depressed and your brain thinks it has come up with a solution to this problem. You know that your dd would not be better off(and she wouldn't) as you have reached out for help. Do you have friends or family in rl who can support you now. You are worth the gift of life.

Agree. Reach out for help. Go to the gp.

Ditto the other posters you need to go and see your GP urgently for more support.

If you feel you are at immediate risk you can contact your local crisis team or attend A&E for support.

Take care x

Thank you for responding, it means a lot that people have taken time to do so.

That is just not true. I knew one person who committed suicide it had a devastating effect on the children and the rest of the people who knew them. Also I know someone else who knows a girl whose father committed suicide years and years ago and she's never got over it. Please get some support.

I'm with you. .recently (very recently) I took an overdose. My son is devastated. Try all you can to avoid that and get some help (although god knows it's very very hard to get any help ) The kids don't deserve that burden x

My mum committed suicide when I was 19. Please please please don't do this to your family, they need you so much.

Please go to the gp as soon as you can to ask for some help. Thinking of you, being distressed like this is terrible x

My dh almost succeeded in committing suicide very recently. It has been completely devastating for the whole family.

PLEASE seek help, through GP, Samaritans, or a close friend. I can promise you with my hand on my heart its better for your DD to have you.
