1. Please don’t do anything like that. Surely there’s a hot line you can call? Or a support group? For what it’s worth, I’ll be thinking of you and hoping you get through this, and I’m sure the rest of your readers are with you as well. I know simple words are not what you need right now, but hopefully it will help to know that someone somewhere is thinking about you. Please, make that call or go to the hospital if you need to.

    Don’t do anything please. You did the first step by reaching out here, please reach out everywhere you can. I’ve been there, the first step is admitting the emotion and telling as many as you can.

    You’ll be surprised by how many people care.

    Talk it out, blog it out, whatever you gotta do.

  3. Hi there! Sounds like you’re in a really tough space. For what it’s worth, I’ve been there, and have lived to tell the tale. As Nikeyo said, you’ve taken the first step by reaching out here, which is just so great! I know how hard that first step can be. I know I’ll be following your posts from now on. I wonder if there’s anyone else you could reach out to, as well?

    Take care. I’ll be thinking of you in the meantime.

    Fojap, you’re so fucking brillant! This world needs your strength, compassion and talents. Please, please don’t hurt yourself! I am so sorry that I don’t know how to help you. You have written about so many amazing experiences about your life in such an illustrative way, I feel as though I am in the middle of every story with you. I love your cross-hatching, it’s such beautiful work. You are sensitive to others because of your great empathy and I absolutely love that about you. You choose to put yourself in the other person’s shoes so that you may better understand them. Please, please keep blogging and talking until you grab a hold of the best set of eyes/ears of someone near you who will listen to you and be able to help you out. We’re here for you, keep typing to let us know what is going on inside your heart.

  5. You’re so right to reach out, and people do understand how you feel! I feel lonely even in a crowd sometimes. Depression works that way. Listen to my friend Dysthymia Bree – she rules! We’ll be following you and wishing the best for you. Do keep blogging. I think getting all the thoughts out help process things. Hang in there.

  6. I just woke up to find your posts this morning….I hope you wake up and feel a little better today. Your writing is compelling and your art is brilliant, from what I have seen on here. Please talk to someone about how you are feeling….

  7. We care. Tomorrow will be different.
    Give time, time. You are not alone.
    Please don’t do anything. It may not work.
    There are things worse than death.
    Please let someone help you. I care.
    I’ve been there too. I once slashed my wrists.
    I know how bad one can feel. It can get better.
    Give it some time. Get help. There is a lot of help out there.
