I just don't have the will to live anymore. My ex husband won't let me see my children. And my own mother has pulled some crap that now has me in legal trouble. I have nothing. I live with a friend. My family wants nothing to do with me.

You will get through this. Whatever is going on, you have the choice to keep going and make things better. Be better. You are loved.

Wow, it sounds like you are in a hard place. Don't give up. You are valuable. What kind of support do you have? And does your ex have full custody

I have nobody. I just had brain surgery and because of the legal crap my own mother did to me she kicked me out.

You are not alone. I'm so sorry for the pain you are experiencing. Is there a crisis hotline in your area? I have called one in the past and found it quite helpful. Keep breathing. You are worth fighting for. xoxo

Don't feed into your own negativity! Fight it- do you have any Vitamin D? Maybe this extreme depression has something to do with Seasonal Anxiety/ Depression. Call a help line or someone. Figure this out, Shannon. Be tough. Call your doctor or whoever is on-call. Yes, you can be better and do better. You get stomped on? Learn from it and move on. Get stomped again? Keep going. Figure it out, you are capable. I don't have to know anything else about you to know that you have the ability to seek help. Seek it, find it, do the work- you will get through this all.

You don't have to " fight" so much as just not give up.

I agree. Seek help. You reached out here. Keep reaching. Do not stop reaching out. You are not going to feel this way forever.

This much is true but the legal part has me scared. I don't want to go to jail for something I didn't do.

That is a scary prospect indeed. Sounds like you could benefit from talking to a lawyer? Keep taking care of yourself. Mind, heart, and body. No matter what is going on. Many hugs to you.
