Does anyone randomly get hit hard with an overwhelming fear and urge to kill yourself? Like bad.  Nothing I do helps, I can’t just breathe or relax, it’s severe and if it wasn’t for my partner I wouldn’t be here. I don’t want to die, but when I’m hit with these attacks my body takes over. I’m on Prozac 40mg but think maybe I need a mood stabilizer or anti psychotic. I’m just scared and feel alone

    Hi, I know this a month old, I don't get an urge to kill myself but I do get strong urges to harm myself, it's almost like a relief, I cut my thighs if I do it I also frequently want just to let life pass me by and just stay in bed as I know I am safe there xxx

    Have you seen your GP recently ?

    If not please go talk with Him, again and ask for help.

    Your GP needs help in addressing your problems, so you can get help and address your Self Harm. and any fears you may have, that is not allowing you to get out of bed

    Please go and see your GP, always here to talk.

    Do you have any idea why you cut ??
