im so glad to hear from you, and equally glad you're getting help.

Suicide is so close to many of us, it's something that's touched me deeply.
My brother attempted it a few years back, for reasons other than SA, and that shook me rigid.

But it didn't stop me frantically searching for a length of pipe to fit over my exhaust pipe a couple of years later.
The frustration of looking broke me down into a helpless wreck and I walked away.

Inbetween these times my best friend, who had also been abused at school with me hung himself, and I can hardly type this. That did break me up.
The bastards got him.
My sweet friend Micky has gone forever.

It's no answer, no matter how grim life looks - and we all have days when it looks fucking grim - we're stronger than our abusers ever were. We're worth a whole lot more, it's their consciences that should should be giving them hell - not ours.

Stick with the therapist and the doctor Michael, it's worth it - I promise you.


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.
