All evening when I shut my eyes I see myself slashing my stomach open or my arms the visions and thoughts won't go away. I seem to be obsessed with these thoughts. I've tried distracting myself washing the dishes but that includes knives, suduko puzzles can't concentrate. I don't really want to cut myself but these thoughts just won't go.I last cut myself about 4 days ago the word DIE into my arm. Do I phone the NHS crisis team for yet another talk or dose up with diazepam. I've got like indigestion pains in my chest which I assume is anxiety, breathing heavy, crying on and off. I've been not doing too bad this week as well, got a headache too. I get so angry with myself when these thoughts won't go away, i'm getting more jittery even typing this. so i'll stop.

    Tina, call the crisis team NOW.  That's what they're there for, we can only offer you long distance support and you obviously need more than we can give you on this forum.

      Waiting for my call back, only superficial cuts this time and diazepam. Hands still shaking. At least I don't feel suicidal for a change....

    has your dose been upped recently or changed on matazpine could be causing you problems. im so sorry to hear this and youve definetly done the right thing coming hear and asking for help thats definetly a postive thing, is there no family friends even a neighbour you can talk to to help you make your decision on what you want to do. diazapam will calm you but im worried about these thoughts using a scale 1 being low and 10 being the highest on the chance you will act on these thought anything over 8 i would be contacting the crisis team as they are the professionals. i know its hard but getting angry with yourself is only fueling your mood try deep breathing and meditation for the aniexty as diazpam might aggrovate your headache. i hope your ok and manage to not act on these thoughts and please contact someone for help straight away if there is a chance you will.

    big hugsss x

      Thanks for your reply, no change to medication been on 45mg for about 7 weeks now. had a good talk to someone from the mental health team, diazepam has kicked in, going to take another before going to bed then I should go to sleep quite quick and the visons won't bother me hopefully and by the morning will be gone again until the next time.
