Almost lost my angel
I almost lost my angel this weekend. She attempted suicide during the night Thursday night. I didn't discover it until I tried to get her up Friday morning. She stopped breathing twice on the way to the ER and barely had a pulse when we got there. Later in day while in ICU she coded once and had to be resuscitated and then her blood sugar crashed requiring another emergency procedure. She is ok now and will be spending a few days in psych.

I've posted before about her past history of an abusive marriage and her loss of unborn children. She has been involved now for over two years in a bitter divorce and custody battle for her children. A setback in court on Thursday apparently triggered the decision.

I'm trying to be strong for her, but I am battling my own demons. We are both in so much debt and struggling day-to-day. I recently started seeing a therapist just before this.

I know it will all get better. But, I'm not sure I will ever get over the image of her face going ash colored as she fell over vomiting and the nurse doing chest compressions while they worked to get her back.

I'm not really posting this for advice or to seek words of comfort, though I certainly appreciate any that are offered. I guess I just know that many of you here have experienced this sort of thing and will understand. Thanks for reading.

Thankfully, our story continues;

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart

Huge hugs to you. That is a traumatic experience. I truly hope things get better or at least ease up for you very soon.

Biggest hugs TB. Hoping for the best for you both.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Oh TB, I have no words -- Hug

If you do need to talk, you know you can always PM me.

But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
