The struggles of my story are long but I will make this short. I have been struggling with depression, bipolar, suicide, cutting, and eating disorders for 11 years. I am in a really bad place in my life right now and I don't know what to do. I want help but am afraid of being "commited". I don't want to be forced into help. I know that my time is running very short and if something doesn't change I will be "gone". I have 2 small children and have been hanging on for them, but I can't hang on much longer. The most recent attempt at seeking help ended up with two police officers knocking at my front door. That is not the kind of help I want. I guess I just dont' know what to do anymore or who to turn to. The light at the end of my tunnel has burnt out and in turn I too will be gone soon. I just want someone to hug me and listen to my pain, but I can't talk to anyone that I know, its too difficult for me. I am afraid that I will scare people with my thoughts. I have a "plan" and it seems right now the best option...
