I Feel Like Giving Up

I am in such a dark place
I dont know what's the point anymore
It would be better for my kids to lose me now then when they are older and can feel this pain
I just want to give up

Is there someone you can ask for help? Hospital? Mental health contact number?

Only I can tell you your kids would never get over losing you and you sound like you need help.
Things seem really bleak now but they will not always be.. Please get some help
@Adaydreambeliever u think someone who's depressed will call such places?

Your kid needs you, even if you're sick right now. Seeking help is okay. Going on meds for a bit may help. Caring for your self [even if you can't and need someone else to do it for you] is caring for your kid.

Losing you won't ever be better for your kids.

Never give up on yourself or your family.
It's a rough time, and you feel depressed, but it's always better to be there for them rather than gone.
They might understand pain more when they are older, but they are also better able to deal with the loss.

That would be horrible losing a mom.

Anything we can do to help?

Don’t feel that way. Things will get better. It takes time.

How old are your kids?
