Until recently. My life has become very messy. Hurting people I love without realizing it. Causing them to feel sad or depressed. I know with time things will heal or whatever people say but it’s hard to have hope right now when my life is just falling apart. If the bills disappeared, guilt, insecurities, arguing, just hating myself in general from my attitude to the physical appearance. I feel like trash. I’m just tired of crying and screaming on the inside it’s time to talk before I end up too low.  </span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClassC413A1D1736645BE94A094287D64388D"><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">Thank you for reaching out for help today since you have been feeling suicidal recently.
