Made a post about some bad times in my life and asked for prayers. You all really came through. Prayers, well wishes and one of you even offered help with food.

Went to prayer group last night and to the soup kitchen afterwards. Haven’t missed a day of work through all this. Walking there and back, but it’s doing me good. Time with my thoughts.

Made a new bank account and am talking to a great lawyer who is taking my case on deferred payment until I get back on my feet.

Just wanted to thank you all again. Still have a long way to go, but I wouldn’t even be here If it wasn’t for God working though you all.

I’ll never forget it.

Thank you so much. Reading this helped pull me back together. Appreciate you more than you know.

It was cathartic for me too, thanks. Don't struggle alone! Count your blessings! I know it sounds like a tired old saying, but it helped. Stepping back, recognizing what my small corner of the world would lose, almost lost... I know what I've lost from those who left too soon..

HMU if you have those stupid creeping feelings / thoughts.

Count your blessings and compliment yourself in the mirror! Allow yourself to be bad at it at first.

It's an old saying, because it's true.

It's so good to hear that you've faced the abyss and conquered it. It's a daily struggle, it never ends, some days are worse than others, but if you did it once, you can do it again. Keep putting one foot in front of another, keep trying to find something to make better, no matter how small.

You've shown yourself that you can do it, now keep doing it.
