panic alarm

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all, I just had the people round the house to fit it with a phone line direct to a helpline so if at any point I feel suicidal etc I can pick up the phone and speak to someone who is trained to listen and advise. Was just wondering if anyone else has this an if its useful? Thanks

    Any step you take to keep yourself alive is useful.

    If you can manage it...you will look back at this time in life and shiver that you even had the thought of harming yourself.

    I know...I wanted to kill myself at 21 and SO glad I didn't.....

    Give it a shot ok.

    When in this state of mind we see everything as negative.

    Try to redirect your thoughts to - well, they have this service..and it is still active..it may be somewhat useful.

    You may end up talking to someone that says something that really changes your mind about your feelings or situation.  Reaching out to me shows...you don't want to feel this way and you are taking steps to feel better.

    Give it a try..actually call them BEFORE you get in a desperate mood..because it is unlikely that you will call when really serious about killing yourself.  Call and talk about your feelings...and get tools on how to avoid or dismiss those feelings.  BEFORE your in crisis.

    There are specialist crisis teams that I can call if necessary..I keep my crisis team number with me at all times. They respond 24/7 if you need them they are there. Try and find if there is a MH crisis team that you can contact in times of crisis...so pleased to see you are thinking ahead in preparation should you feel that desperate again. With me I have to remove all kinds of rope , anything that I now know would be a temptation. Good Luck jx
