Since broadcasting my own wishes to stop the pain by any means necessary, I’ve received a few messages from friends telling me they aren’t much better off, or perhaps they are ever farther gone. I’ve complied a list of resources, help me add to it!

You can always stop in a church, or an AA meeting, or an emergency room, and someone will try to help you – Harborview I know will take people without money (although you may get a bill there’s financial aid as well)
You can call me too, and if I can’t help you maybe I know someone who can.
