Okay. I've been in the hospital six times in the past ten months. Four of my hospitalizations were within three months of each other, then I had six months without any, and now I've had two one after the other. All of them were for overdosing/thoughts of overdosing. At the beginning, I was very depressed, and was hurting myself because of that. But recently I've been feeling much better - but I've still been hurting myself impulsively. I don't know what it is - all I know is that I'm feeling much better, but I still keep landing myself in the hospital. Honestly, I'm scared! If I'm feeling better and I'm doing this things, how will I ever be able to trust myself not to do them?
And I can't keep being hospitalized. I have to get my life back on track. I haven't worked in over a year, so I need to go back to work. My relatives think I'm crazy for living half my life in the psych ward. I know I don't belong there, but I'm some level I feel I do. I identify with the people there. But I know I can't get there again. I can't do it to my husband and kids. They really can't cope while I'm gone - and I know, if I'm dead they really won't be able to cope, but soemhow I just don't think of that when I overdose.
BUT I NEED TO STOP. I NEED TO STOP DOING THESE THINGS AND STOP LANDING IN THE HOSPITAL. I NEED MY LIFE BACK.
What do I do?


-------------------------
I want to love my life. My desire is what counts.

Lambs are very peaceful and relaxed. They don't seem to worry about anything. They allow themselves to be sheared, and their wool keeps others warm. They are very gentle, and are liked by all. They are confident that their owner will provide for them.

Maybe it will help if you are able to be like a lamb. To not stress yourself out about all the different stresses. But, instead, to try to push those thoughts away, and to feel confident that G-d will provide and watch over you and your whole family.

Have a good Shabbos.
Hope to hear good news.
