Hi Faye:

If you are looking for a place where you can seek out spiritual and personal friendships you have found as good a place as any.  The men and women on this sight are very caring individuals with only a few exceptions and you should be able to find comfort for your soul.  However, if your initial statement is anywhere near accurate of your true inner feelings about yourself and your life, you are in desperate need of professional help.  You speak about thinking about suicide every day and if that is an accurate portrayal (and I have no reason to doubt that it is not) then you need to call out for help with a mental health professional or professionals.  In addition to your mental ill health you are also battling with alcohol dependency which will only magnify other maladies.  If you are not currently under the influence of alcohol drive yourself.  If you have been drinking call a friend or relative that you trust and have them take you to a mental health facility and sign yourself in under a voluntary commitment.  If that is not an option, call an ambulance and have them take you.  What you describe is a very serious situation and you should not put off seeking professional care any longer.  They will be able to deal both with your depressive symptoms and your alcohol dependence at the same time and after inpatient treatment can refer you to outpatient help on follow up of the inpatient care.   I am an experienced psychiatric RN and you need professional help now.  Don’t put this off till tomorrow.  And don’t involve the Kingdom Hall if you can help it.  The brothers there even if they are well meaning are not trained to give you the care that you clearly need.  Get professional help now!
