Karen Lewis
Depression and other mentalillnesses

Hi, my name is Karen, and I know that it may be selfish for me to ask for prayers for myself, but I really need prayers.

I am suffering from severe depression, ptsd, bi-polar, borderline personality Disorder, and absessive compulsive disorder. I am having a hard time. I had to give my son up because I could not properly take care of him. I dont know what to do. I feel like I cant go on anymore. No one wants to be around me and that hurts the worst. I cant continue to live like this. i cant deal with all that is happening in my life. I just hope that it is not to late for prayers because I am looking at a few years in prison for things that I have done. I hope that God doesnt feel like I am a wasted life. Please help me.

Dear Karen,

We're sorry you feel so badly right now. It sounds as if you would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources you could try. We hope you will contact one of them as soon as possible. You deserve to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If you are in the U.S., call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When you call this free number, you will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in your region. The sooner you make this call, the better. (helplines worldwide)

2. If you can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called The Samaritans. Send an e-mail to and you will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website you may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

You are in our prayers.
