I made a mistake

I made a huge mistake. I attempted to take my life 3 days ago, and have never regretted anything more than this. I wasn’t even that down when it happened, I drank too much and made the dumbest decision I’ve ever made. I’ve worried everyone in my family and I have no idea how I’m supposed to get back to living my life as it was before. I just want to pretend that it all never happened, but I feel like I’ve crossed a line that changes the trajectory of my life. Im so anxious about this and I just really don’t know what to do to feel better. I do know that I never want to do this again, and I do want to live.

Hi smallbutstrong,

I just wanted to check in on you to ask how you are.

Are you feeling a little more settled? Are you being a little less hard on yourself?

I hope you are, you deserve to feel better and begin to put the experience behind you. Don't let it define you.

My best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Hey Indigo22,

 

thanks for checking in! I’m doing okay and back at work. Trying to connect more with friends at this time but still definitely having my low points. I’m getting there I think 🙂

hi smallbutstrong,

 

celebrate the small wins and you will get there. You can only move a mountain a pebble at a time. Enough clichés, but sayings like these help me. And hopefully will mean something to you.
