    hi Steve,

    well done one for taking the first step and taking the step of opening up.

    its good to talk on here, you aren't going to be judged and you can say exactly how you feel.

    is the cutting a new thing ? How long have you been having counselling ?

    i ask these questions as I know that counselling can make you feel worse before it makes you better, this is because it makes you think about and rake up all of those horrible things that we have pushed down and ignored for ages and now someone is asking you to bring it all up again and then deal with it.

    the cutting if new can sometimes be out of frustration as there seems to be nothing else that works or has the same desired effect.

    what do you think ?

    Hi Steve.

    Sorry to hear of your troubles.

    Sounds as though life is tough for you at the moment. You don't mention in the comments if you've spoken to your GP/psychiatrist/psychologist/counsellor about the cutting, and life getting worse.

    If you are getting some form of counselling and are under a mental health team it may be worth getting in contact with them. Even on an evening there should be someone you can call, to talk things through. I would say in the meantime if you don't have anyone to talk to from mental health contact either someone from MIND, or Samaritan's, or something similar.

    I would

    D urge you to go to your GP and tell them how bad things are at the moment, if you haven't done already.

    Also medication may need addressing if you've been taking it for a while and still feel the same.

    We're here to listen to and help each other.

    My best advice though would be to go see your GP, or counsellor asap and be really open and honest. If you need to you can always take a print out of what you've written here.

    I know for me it was a combination of counselling, the right medication - I tried 5 before getting on one that helped me, also support from friends and family ( I realise you've said you feel alone without any friends, but even talking on the phone helped me).

    All the best

    i needed immediate help sunday evening, i was scared of self haming or even fullfilling suicide, i've read ur not suicidle, and i've never felt like self harm before, however i googled suicide hotline got thru calmzone and they advised to dail 999 an request ambulance, of which i was in hospitol over night, and it helped me, as i was'nt alone, and witnessed many ppl suffring from diffrent things, made me realise i have no appreciation for my life,

    i've been seeing a GP an seeking further help for a few yrs now, hope the above is of sum use to you
