Self harm

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've suffered serious bouts of depression for many years.

Once again I am in the midst of a depression, except this time the anxiety I normally associate with the thought of hurting myself is not present and I have made a plan to end my life.

Now I'm just waiting until the right moment.

Do not wish to put myself into a mental health clinic, been there, done that, doesn't help.

I am in Welbutrin and set to see a Physc tomorrow. Which can't come quick enough. I need some kind of sedative.

Can't sleep barely eating.........

      Lillie,

      I appreciate the response, but I do not wish to spend any time in a mental health facility. If I could go somewhere together medication sedatives of some kind without being held I would.

      Peace

    Dan,

      I know how you feel. Mental Health clinics do not help. You have to sort this out in your own mind. You have to feel, Do I have a right to be here?  I'm going through the same kind of depression that you are, but I do feel that i have a right to be here. Please listen to my advise and follow your heart not your emotions.

      People on here don't really inderstand, Dan. I battle from the same kind of mental illness thay you do. You have to get your mind straight or try to keep it straight. You and I have a right to be here. I have been through a lot of discomfort physically over the past 6 years and just when I think I'm ready to throw in the towel, I rest my mind and say, ok, lets try this for another day.

        I will stay talking to you if you would like. Maybe you and I can help each other.

      I really appreciate the offer. Right now I have to get out the house, going to see a friend. Hoping it will take my mind of things.

      Of course you deserve to be on here

      The only thing which has kept me alive is that I have a 23yo daughter and I would not be able to imagine the pain it would cause her.

      It doesn't stop me from fantasizing about hurting myself. Which for the first time in my history of depression I haven't had much anxiety about and it feels like it would or could be far easier than I ever thought. I hate my life.

    I am in therapy. When I mentoined these feelings to my therapist, part of her response was that people who believe in reincarnation say if you do that, then in your next life all your problems will be repeated.

    Does anyone think this was an inapporiate answer? Btw, slept reslly badly last night. But am out the house and ttying to keep busy. Have a good day.

      I dont want you to harm yourself in any way its not the way to go.

      Life gets tough for us all.

      I dont think the therapist meant anything by it I dont believe in that kind of thing when your dead  your dead you have had your chance at life

      Keep getting out and about things will get better.

      Take Care

      Well that didn't go well. The Physc wanted to call an ambulance for me. I walked out. He was talking about holding me for a month. No way is that happening.

      I have a small business which will disintegrate if I'm not available and a trip to see my Dad in London in two weeks.

      Oh well time to get some Wellbutrin.
