If you have thoughts of harming yourself please call the local help line that helps people with you type of problems. In some places it is called a suicide hot line and 911can connect you. Please call.

Eval: What have you done about it? If you haven't seen your physician or a therapist- that would be a good place to start. You can be assessed for depression or anxiety and worked up to find out if there is a medical cause. This is treatable and you can feel better. Don't lose hope.
