Our expert says:
No, I don't think you need a slap at all. You sound very seriously depressed, and need proper assessment and treatment. You and your children deserve that. Call Lifeline in the short-term, and arrange to see a good local psychiatrist as soon as possible, for assessment and advice. Remember, apart from the fact that with effective treatment you could be genuinely enjoying life and your family and other opportunities in life, but that with ANY attempt, nomatter how carefully planned, there is a high risk of simply damaging yourself unpleasantly, and having all your existing problems plus new ones. Don't do it.
