I live alone. I'm in my twenties. I am isolated. I have no confidence. I feel so sad. My biological father abused me when I was a child. No justice. He is now terminally ill. I feel I wish I was never born.

Thank you for your advice. I'll persevere..keep going..I'll try and talk to someone. It's so hard to see the light when you feel blinded by sadness. I hope things will change..that I can change. I know life's too short to feel this way. I just wish I could escape my mind sometimes.

I can tell that you are a wonderful person. You deserve to be a friend, a teacher, a lover, a father/mother ... of other people. Don't isolate/limit yourself. Let other people know how great you are!

You are not alone, and you don't need to fight alone ...

Please hold on.

I'm in my twenties, I live alone and am similar to you in many ways...I was also abused as a child. I have tried to kill myself several is so hard when you feel alone and desperate....but suicide isn't the answer, it really isn't.

I'm guessing you feel really confused about your Dad...he hurt you so badly and you had no justice but now he's dying....and what should you feel?

Your life is precious....even if you can't believe that. There is noone else who has your exact qualities. Right now, that probably doesn't matter to you...and you probably can't believe you're worth anything at all but you are.

I don't know you but I know you've been strong enough to survive abuse. You're still here, still fighting: reaching out for help takes courage....

For me, when I'm in the really dark place, I try to do something that makes me feel safe and, lame as it sounds, distraction is really a feel good film, write, clean, go for a whatever it is that relaxes you most and distracts you best. And if all else fails, postpone. I had therapy for a while and my therapist used to say to me:-

'Suicide isn't going'll still be there tomorrow. For today: try staying alive' .

It has helped me a lot. 'One more day' can feel manageable and then, when tomorrow comes, postpone again. I sometimes find myself postponing each day for for months and months but I'm still alive and that's the point! :)

I think you probably need to speak to someone about all of this though...someone face to face I mean.  You have a lot going on. Your Dad's illness will bring **** up to the surface.'d be good if you could get some extra support.

Don't give up on yourself...please.

You need to get help with the abuse, this will not go away until you have worked through this with a trained person.

My neighbour has had life long problems because the abuse was not addressed, from day one she was told to hid it, we are in Ireland which has a long history of hinding abuse.

This does no one any good apart from the abusers who get away with it,  they relay on people's shame to cover up the badness that they have done.  Stay strong and seek help, this was not your fault

Hi, I am so sorry to hear all of this is happening for you. But there are many people who care and would not want you to hurt yourself. Have you spoken to anyone? Rang or emailed the Samaritans? I am also a therapist. Feel free to share anything you want. I am happy to listen and hope you can feel that life is not totally over-but there are many steps you can take to get out of this situation. J ***
