Posted , 3 users are following.

I posted earlier in wk as I SH myself on 2 separate occasions. I feel disgusted with myself but the urge is still there. My mood had been so low . Yet I had an increase in meds last wk so I'm confused. I have gp tomorrow and I know I need to tell him but I'm so scared. Today was easier as was on the phone but face to face is very different

    Hi Sarah

    You have already been very brave acknowledging you need some help. The increase in your meds may take a little longer to kick in. My son when he was younger SH and on finding out I felt dreadful that I hadn't spotted the marks and had not been there for him when he was despairing. Thankfully he is now better as you will be with the right help. When you see your gp you should tell him everything and don't worry about embarrassment. He is the doctor and would of seen many patients in your situation. Stay strong and I assure you with the right help you will get through this.

    Wishing you a better tomorrow

    God bless

      Hi Sarah

      Well done to you for speaking to the gp. Is the doctor referring to a service that may help you? 2 weeks can seem a long time when your feeling low. Please call the NHS 111 if you feel your going to SH over this period as they may be able to support you and hopefully deter you from hurting yourself.

      If you don't want to do that then please reach out to us here.

      Thinking of you and sending you hugs and positive thoughts.

      God bless
