      Just wondering if you can think of one thing that you could say or do to encourage someone today. The one thing that I would say is “*Keep Standing* “estatic

        • I was thinking about the same thing as what Neicy said.  Haven’t been up long enough to come up with anything more profound.

        • Thank you Coco and the others. Yesterday I was standing with the gun in my hand thinking about using it.  Why not I am miserable and seem to make everyone else around me miserable.  I went to the therapist.  We tried discussing some of the situations going on.  I still have not gotten my head all the way around the reason for living.  The gun is still there though I am not holding it, the pills are quite handy.  I feel like a whiner. I do not want to be one! I want to be that person I was before.  The one who could take life by the horns and continue on.  Where am I going with this?  I do not know.  I do know I want to thank you for yesterday, you helped me through one more day.  If I do not make it through today it is my fault. But, yesterday you were the words I needed to see at the moment and feel.  Thank you

        • Please reach out to us through pm. I certainly will and I am sure that anyone you speak with will keep things confidential.

          Whatever is going on is temporary and you should not take permanent action based on a temporary situation.

          You are in my prayers.

        • Here’s what I’d say, “Cry out to the Lord, He hears and answers!” Michael’s biopsy came back clear! Anon, I’m praying for you. Keep in contact with us.

        • Thank you ladies for sharing and feeling what Anon is going through. You are all what make this site so wonderful and healing to each other. Deb Im glad to hear your good news. Anon I dont know what has happened to you that causes you to want to end the pain, and that is what you want to do is end the pain and i dont know what religious faith you profess so Im going to just keep it real with you like I always have. I am going to speak to you out of my spirit and experience. I would PM you but I dont know who you are or if your even a friend of mine already but since we all know what is going on with you per your responses I think it will be okay. I am a spirit filled believer in God. I have had many dark times in my life and I literally tried to kill myself 4 times. It landed me in a mental institution for manic depression. I feel what you are going through. I was so sad and full of pain that I thought my only way out was death. Many times I walked around in daze hoping that someone would see me and know what I was going through, I wanted someone anyone to reach out and tell me that things was going to be okay but no one did. I felt alone, scared confused, crazy, and useless I really did. One day in that mental institution I took a real hard look at myself. I hated what I saw. I was stinky, old looking, my hair was a mess, my eyes were swollen, I had picked up a habit of smoking, I wasnt healthy, my skin was darken in areas and what I saw scared me. It scared me because the death that I long so much for had began to manifest itself in me and I really looked like a walking corpse. For a second I looked into my own eyes and I heard a voice say to me. "What are you doing here?" I looked around because it was so loud to me. Again I heard it "What are you doing here, you are not suppose to be here" I began to stare at myself and tears began to roll down my face. That was the first time I had cried because of something I felt caressing my heart. As I stood there and cried images of Jesus being beaten began to run through my mind. My God I thought you took a beating that you didnt even deserve for me! How you must have felt. The pain you endured. The ritacule and embarrassment, the torture. You were hung and pierced, nailed and left there while people watched you die all for me. I make mention of this because it was my experience and the thing that caused me to look at my pain in away that I could empithize with Christ. From that point on my mind began to heal and the process began for me. Look at me now. This was 20 years ago but it took me changing myself and allowing God to help me little by little.  I want to speak life into you anon because the enemies job is to steal, kill and destroy you. If you take your life he has won. He doesnt deserve to win. You are already victorious anon. You were created that way. You have a huge destiny and call upon your life and I believe that you know what it is. You have to stand right now and be strong. This is the time when it is gonna count the most. It counts the most because this is the time when you feel like you cant do it. YES YOU CAN! God is answering your prayers even right now as your reading this and I know that you feel him moving upon your heart, because I feel him moving in mine. I speak life into your sadden body. I speak healing over you right now in the name of Jesus. I speak a word over you that you will not perish but have ever lasting life. Anon I decree and declare that you SHALL over come this. You shall live and you shall not die. You shall be victorious. God is going to send someone by that will encourage you daily dont shut them out. Allow God to manifest himself in your life through people. Let him love you and hug you and comfort you through the people he sends. You are going to be okay. This is only a test and you will pass. I just know it. I know it because I did and God doesnt have any favorites. He loves us all the same.  I love you so much and I just wish I could hold you tight and allow all that junk that you are feeling to shed off of you. Im sending peace your way anon. Grab it and hold it in your heart.
