Welcome to the SANE Forums!
I'm so sorry to hear how difficult things are for you at the moment. I can hear how hard you are trying to "Never Give Up," but sometimes it can be a real struggle to continue surviving whilst dealing with thoughts of suicide.
I just wanted to let you know that I have sent you a check-in email.
Please let us know if you are feeling safe for now.

@CheerBear I usually listen to music it depends one day I may listen to Hip Hop or like now I’m listening to David Bowie it settles me and I concentrate on the lyrics and the different instruments.I guess, T.v,going for a walk or just simply play Xbox one with my children that usually helps a lot it makes the day go fast and I can focus on other things in my life rather than the illness.I try and read when I’m in the mood not much lately 😁Drawing like doing graffiti on paper and writing rhymes about my life helps therapeutically.I feel like I do a lot but sometimes I don’t feel like doing anything at all.I also clean a couple of hours a week to help me in my recovery.😁It’s a challenge for me but I do feel very anxious about going to work most times but it’s very rewarding to my health.😁I hope I can make some good friendships here because I feel I need to escape from my family and friends sometimes and exchange ideas,support and advice,I think that’s a healthy choice for me to experience.😁I hope you are doing well and thanks for your support and friendship.😁

thanks for the tag @CheerBear .
hi, @Serenity_13 and welcome from me also. I do a lot to distract myself also. I have a rogue mind. It never stops, so I channel into crafts when I can. Like you, there are times I can’t, and it’s riding the storm and just hanging on.
Its hard going, no argument from me there.
I hope to bump into you around the forums. If you would like to share any of your craft/drawings, there’s a popular craft thread started by @CheerBear, maybe we will meet there.
