  • Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

I guess envy, despair and upset. Was friends with a sex worker and they had a total good bod and we were genuinely pretty good mates but my depression got too much for them

Strongest emotion today: emotional pan knowing I need to find a better home for my dog.Shame, knowing I have failed her. Extreme hopelessness, loneliness.

And that’s while I was awake. I slept with pharmaceutical help all day.

It was anger first and now it’s turning into frustration which will gradually descend down to hopelessness. I wonder, when is it appropriate for me to just throw in the towel and give up already? Is there really hope for everyone? How can I even get to that point of optimism? And why can’t I just live life the way I want to live it? Fuck this.

I’ve certainly been feeling all of these things too. You aren’t alone, I’m not sure if that brings you any comfort. You can certainly speak your mind here.
Thanks. I don't want to feel these things but I cannot hold them back. I want to cry but my eyes are dry. I want someone to hold me but no one is beside me. They all abandoned me saying that I am the only one who can help myself. I know that but I still need someone to hold me, a tight hug, a shoulder to cry on. Yes, I am physically attachment deprived. It is hard when physical touch is my love language but no one can give it to me. I am tired.

Yes that is totally understandable. I don't even remember the last time I got a hug. I don't remember the last time I received a compliment either, at least from somebody IRL. I hate that we all have to go about this alone.

It really sucks. All the years I thought I am strong and independent. I put up a strong character. Now that I am at my weakest and breaking point no one can hold or support me. I hope that you will find someone you can rely on.

Despair. Stating the obvious, given the nature of this site, but it's truly consuming today.

Learned.

A lot of hard lessons hitting me all at once. I feel like my feet are firmly on the ground.
