I've struggled with depression, including suicidal thoughts, and there's been a lot of improvement for me. I've been taking anti-depressant medications and a mood stabilizer medication, prescribed by a psychiatrist. Also I've been doing the 12 Steps of Emotions Anonymous. Part of my continued healing is that I share with others the solution.

1: We admitted we were powerless over our emotions--that our lives had become unmanageable.

2: We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3: We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

4: We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5: We admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

6: We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

7: We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

8: We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

9: We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.

11: We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Emotions Anonymous, a fellowship of people recovering from emotional problems like anxiety, depression and anger.

Hello Help Seeker, You are not alone. We have good days and bad days. Sometimes we have more bad days than good it seems. And if you feel like you have more bad days than good in general, then you are like me, and everyday is a struggle, but you probably didn't get to the mountain idea all at once. Everyday just seemed to add up... eventually you were feeling "super-stuck". Parenting is a very tough job. No matter what the situation was before this happened, you need support to help you through your struggles. No man is an island. If God intended us all to be alone, then why did he give us children and a family...right?..Embarrassment, fear, insecurity, and shame are all included in this journey of well as love and forgiveness and humility. If you take a step back, and think about.. what it was that made you go there, then use that as an opportunity to connect with your family. They should be able to give you love.  Being stuck is not fun, of course..but we are adults, life is what we make it. So take the opportunity to be honest with yourself and if you don't do it, you may regret that even more than what you were going to do. If you need more help, don't be embarrassed, call a professional nearby and make an appointment, they should be able to give you any other help you need. And remember to forgive yourself. God bless you!

IT was wrong to "PUBLICIZE" your plight.The media should apologize and compensate you for the additional emotional distress they caused you. This is what is wrong with society.......People don't care if they hurt others. This a form of public harrassment. People HELP........WHY Criticize.......HELP OTHERS .

I tried to vote this up but it's not working. Anyway I totally agree with you. I suggested that she try to sue if she has the money. The news like to publicize things that they think will make them popular. The news is basically just public gossip about the terrible things that are happening in people's lives.

You are loved and valuable and you are not alone. I am so sorry for what you are going through but keep the news off and let those people say what they want because they are NOBODY at the end of the day in your purpose and journey and they have NO say as to your value and worth!
You are more valuable than diamonds and more precious than rubies. Seek out someone who will lovingly walk this journey with you and stand by your side. If it is difficult to find, keep seeking and ask the Lord to open doors for you. Do not let ***** rob you of your life and children. I was suicidal for many years. Seek the Lord with EVERYTHING in you, every single day and allow Him to heal your broken heart. Cry out to Him as loud as you need to and as often as you need to and take care of yourself because you are worth it...YOU ARE WORTH IT.
I will be praying for you and your healing and your heart...and you are loved, adored, valuable, wanted, cherished and worth the world....Do not allow ANYONE including yourself, to tell you anything differently!!!
God bless you and carry you day by day as you just simply rest in His presence.
