I feel like I’m wasting away

I feel like I’m wasting away

I’ve been extremely unhealthy both physically and mentally. I’m exhausted of everything and I have no energy to move forward. I really just want to end it. The thoughts have come back stronger and more frequent. I really don’t know how much time I’ll have left. I can’t go on much longer. I hate it.
