Following a year and a half spent suffering from debilitating panic attacks, anxiety and severe depression I attempted to take my own life by taking an overdose in June 2015. According to the amaxing doctors and nurses that treated me following the overdose, the variety and amount of pills I took should have killed me. I was very lucky. Physically i was strong and that is what saved me. I cant say that i am always glad that I was given a second chance but i do know I have been very lucky.
The road to recovery has been incredibly long with each day feeling like I have a mountain to climb. I am making great progress but still have major problems going out and being around people. I had to leave my job because of my illness and am still terrified at the prospect of returning to work. I really want to be well enough to be able to get back to doing what I love but the honest truth is that I am not ready yet. I so wish that I was able to stand on my own two feet but at the moment i just can’t. This illnes has been the scariest thing that has ever happened to me. I have lost so much and am asking anyone who is willing to to help me get well so that i can start living again.
I am determined to get better as soon as possible but need some help. i guess I am asking anyone who is willing to help give me the time I need to fully recover. The world doesnt stop because you get sick and rent, bills, food etc still needs to be paid for. Being forced to leave my job has left me with no income and I am really struggling now.
if you would like to help me I would be so gratefuL for anything you can do.
Thank you so much in advance for your help.
