    Hi @Geraldineanthony,

    I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Have you got any support? Any friends or family that can help?

    You mention giving up on life - if you are having thoughts of suicide, it is important that you discuss them with someone who is qualified to help. Please call the Samaritans on 116 123 (free) or email them at [email protected] You might also benefit from reading MIND’s information on how you can help yourself.

    We can try to help you here - you can also try our helpline - 0808 800 3333 (open 9-5) who might be able to help you get some support.

    Have you tried phoning our helpline? They're very busy, so you might not get through straight away - but it would be well worth discussing your situation with them to see if there's any support you can get.
