8 weeks after my suicide attempt.

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hello,

I attempted suicide about 8 weeks ago. I was found. I spent time in hospital and all healthcare professionals promised me all the help in the world....that hasn't happened and I am still all alone with no one to talk to/understand me or listen. I know I am a boring old stupid idiot but thought perhaps someone in this group might want to talk with me? If not then I honestly understand,thank you all.

    hi Candy. I’m sorry that you are going through this and it must be very difficult.

    It would be very helpful if you could get some counseling on a regular basis. Counselor could help you set some basic short term goals so that you start to feel a little better. Another thing is please don’t call yourself a boring old stupid idiot.

    you are a unique person with your own special gifts and talents. You may not even be aware of that but it’s true. you have value and purpose.

    You just need some support in helping you bring those things out in the open so that you can find joy and peace in life.

    don’t ever give up. You need to put yourself first and take care of yourself. Be a fighter for yourself! You see, a lot of people go through terrible things in life but more importantly then that is how we respond to those times. We can sit back and get depressed and to give up or we have another choice which is to take the obstacle and turn it into an opportunity. that’s where counseling will help.! you can start with baby steps and then build from there. You can start by telling yourself every morning when you wake up what you are grateful for. Everybody has things they are grateful for. Even if it’s the fact that you have a roof over your head And food to eat. there are more things than you might think to be grateful for.

    feel free to share exactly what is bringing you down and making you feel poorly . One day at a time!

    Candy, I am sorry for what you had to go through and I am also very glad that you are still here with us. I can't give you a real hug right now, but I send you good energy and a virtual hug.

    If you have no one to talk to, find a support group, either online or in person, forums like this one, facebook groups.

    A hobby or a pet (or both) might help bring more color to your days as well.

    The most important thing, however, is that you follow up with a psychologist.

    Stay well and hang in there. You are never totally alone.

    Yea people promise to help, but TALK IS CHEAP, no one really gives a s**t, no one really understands the darkness of depression. If you try to tell them, they just think your nuts and have no clue. Funny thing is, if someone gets cancer. people will have much sympathy for you, but if you have a broken brain and have depression,,,,,they think your nuts..... I get it Candy, Feel free to message me.
