    At least I'm not the only one who can see this.
    That's great you've done the right thing. And reassured yourself he's just saying it.

    Best wishes and good luck.

    Thanks guys, I do still have him on Facebook at the moment, I am just hiding his posts from my newsfeed.

    Basically everything that has happened in the last two weeks has just reassured me that I have made the best decision for myself and our daughter.

    If you really worried about him call the police and tell them he threatening his own life stay strong sounds like you made the right decision to leave

    You did the right thing in telling his brother. If he's giving you grief on FB for letting family know, he obviously wasn't too serious about his threats and his brother was right in saying he's just trying to hurt you.
    Stay strong

    Go to a police station, show them the messages. Ask them to do a welfare check on him at his home/work. If he admits to feeling suicidal, he can be forcibly taken by police for a psych evaluation at a local hospital. Those sort of messages also consitute 'harrassment' under domestic violence legislation and for this reason you can visit your local court house and take out a protection order against him.

    You are not responsible for his actions, and people who commit suicide very rarely actually tell people they are going to do it. This is a cry for attention, trying to manipulate you into staying. Don't go there.
    agreed.

    Well done on being strong enough not to give into his manipulations. I know it's difficult when you have cared for someone for so long.

    In regards to facebook...if you don't want to delete him maybe tighten your security settings so he can't see your wall or something.
