Commiting suicide
I am sitting home alone. Babie's asleep. Knocking back pills and gin. Everything went so wrong. So fast. I gave you the child. I'ts my debt. Now I must go. Please take care of her. I love her and my husband too. But I am a bad woman. My time is up.

YOu are not a bad woman, but you are doing a bad thing. Nothing you can possibly have done in your life so far, can justify suicide, and the terrible pain this will cause to your husband and child. and what if something happens and the child needs you, and you're unconscious ? But don't hurt everyone who reads your mesage here, by posting a message like this when you know nobody hear is able to reach you and prevent this, as we all would want to do. Call an ambulance and go to hospital and tell them exactly what you have taken. Call Lifeline, as we recommend on the forum page. And see a good local psychiatrist asap to sort out whatever has been troubling you.
DON'T DO IT. You, your husband and child deserve so very much more than this --- call an ambulance and get the help you need. And when the crisis has passed, then come back to the forum and let us know how things are going, in fresh messages, and you will find a lot of support here.
