I know what you are feeling because my family had me on suicide watch the first 72 hours of my coming to terms with the fact that the "man" I loved wasn't coming home to me. It was during this time that I was coming to the realization that I was being scammed for 9 months. I also felt abandoned by God because I thought that this new found relationship was an answer to my prayers. I have a long track record with choosing the wrong men in my life. Before the scammers, I was engaged to a man who was cheating on me behind my back, then there was the man I was dating that decided to choose his ex-wife and had another girlfriend while with me, then there was the man who dated me only as a cover for his family because he didn't want to admit to them that he was actually gay. So when I decided to go online to meet someone I thought maybe I would find my perfect mate...and I did because he was created exactly for me based on the information I gave the scammers. They even made us have the exact birth date, just different years. I was so excited to think that my prince had finally come. I once again planned a wedding that was never going to happen. I felt humiliated and didn't know how I was going to face the people who were so excited for me and I didn't know how I was going to face the people who warned me that I was getting scammed. I couldn't stand to see the pity in their eyes. But you know what? I found out that I was worried for nothing...sure I see pity in people's eyes...but people were more concerned for my well being than the fact that I was duped by criminals. I have learned that I have a lot more to live for than I thought I did. The feelings you are feeling are based on what the scammers led you to believe...that you can't live without them. I used to tell the scammers that if they left me I couldn't go one without them BUT guess what I am and you will too. Please don't do anything drastic such as take your life. My suggestion for you would be to connect one on one with one of the wonderful peer counselors here. Pick one and talk privately with them. That has really helped me. Remember to take one day at a time, If that is too hard take in a hour by hour. You can do this and trust me you will come out much stronger for it.Justice
