31 Things To Do Before You Commit Suicide

I hope that you will have a good day. You say we must fight to keep ourselves in a healthy state of mind. True, one must be vigilant. However, the "fight" becomes easier if we stop to meditate on the fact that Jesus has already won the battle. I hope you get good news from your primary care physician.

Unfortunately I have been unemployed since last September, I have been applying for jobs, by the handful and I am not getting anywhere, I am so behind with my bills that I might be evicted soon, so I really need help in raising money so I can get all my bills paid off and still be able to stay in my home.

The VANISHING FATHER

Don't give up no matter what...but...do keep your job. Do what it takes to prioritize -I know that is so hard but your daughter will need you for a lifetime and you her...and you must take care of yourself so that you can take care of her. Work on getting a back up - e.g. baby sitter, friend, or something that you can gently introduce as a part of your support system that might be able to help when your ex is late picking her up or does not pick her up from school or somewhere else - you will need this network for a lifetime as well. If you don't have one, you might consider joining a church or other community type activity - charity - or something so that you can become a part of something larger for you, for her and thus plug into a network that you support and can support you and her. A solid network again you will need for a lifetime and people out there - community - needs you too. You and she could do things together, building the extended family and network together. - My father gave up because of a difficult mother and this has impacted my my whole life. It effects my confidence, the way I related to people, and even though I know it was not my fault, I have tremendous guilt and wonder everyday what might have been had I had his support, even sometimes. Daughters get ingrained in their heads that they are somehow less than the other kids that have fathers who are involved - that is the way it is and in the school yard, it's brutal - its a measure of status that sticks with you all the way thru that you have to work double time to fit in.

Don't give up - pray, even if you never have...just do it and take one day at a time. Love is powerful thing and is meant for one day at a time, building for a lifetime. And, someday you will be old, we all will, and when those days come, you will need her in more ways that you can imagine - not for "cares" sake but for the love :) - Finally, remember, she is gift...you are gift to each other and its worth fighting for. She will learn about love, relationships - the right way - thru u...she will look to u for these lessons...take the opportunity no matter how challenging.

God Bless and Good Luck.

Need short-term help paying for rent, utilities, & car insurance

Not sure about Illinois, I'm in Ohio, but it wouldn't hurt to check with your welfare department. There are many programs that are not well known. Also, 211 is a great resource.
