    Prescriptions to you

    They send my mental health medication aripiprazole in the post now. If I'm not in the postman will leave it in my shed. I wouldn't mind but the drug makes you have suicidal thoughts!

    Coping with friend's betrayal

    My best friend of 1 year and I moved away for college together. We were both unhappy with our current lives, hardly any support from our families and she wanted to go away and start a new life with me. Her situation was tougher than mine so I offered to support her until she was stable. I...

    Suicidal adult sister won't seek help

    My younger sister's been saying she was going to kill herself for about a month now. She's in her early 30s. Last weekend, she took an overdose but thankfully it didn't work and she woke up the next morning. She refused to go to hospital and has said she'd try another method that would...

    0 friends left, my current situation

    I hope this is in the right forum - it seemed most appropriate as this is a mixture of issues. Pasted this directly off my blog as this is my best explanation of everything and it saves writing it twice: Sorry it's so long. Couldn't figure out if there was a way to put it under a spoiler. I...

    Life sucks

    I'm sorry if there is an etiquette that I'm neglecting. I signed up here literally minutes ago. Right now I'm feeling in a pretty bad way. 2 years ago I walked away from my marriage after finding out that my wife had been having an affair for a couple of months. She'd got her friends to...

    Something is wrong with her.. :/

    Hi there, I've been making the rounds on a few forums looking for some advice, so if you've read this before, welcome back. :P Anyway, here's the story... My girlfriend and I have been together for four and a half years. We met online, met several times and eventually she moved in with me. We...

    Toxic Friendship--had enough

    My 'best friend' and I have been friends for about ten years. She's always been a difficult person to get along with. She has her own mental health problems (she says it's a psychosis) but won't take medication for it. She also has a rather bad attitude, particularly towards her family, and...

    Need advice please.

    Hi, I'm new here. I have come to explain my convoluted situation and hopefully try and get some advice. I'm 28 years old, and come from a background of mental illness, depression, alcoholism and dysfunction. Of late, my behaviour has hit rock bottom with my family. Cracks which have been...

    problematic mum

    Hi, I've got a mother who was abusive to me throughout my childhood. She used to scream at me ferociously at the top of her voice, often for an hour or more, whist called me evil, saying she hated me, saying she wished I was dead etc. Often she'd hit me, and once she tried strangling me, saying...

    Breach of confidentiality

    After some advice, last week our surgery attempted to deliver some meds to my home but I was ill in bed and didnt hear the door. Anyway, it was taken back to the surgery and whilst he was parking his van he met up with my neighbour, after exchanging some pleasantries he said he'd been up her...

    Where on earth do I begin ? I'm trying to be brave...

    :low: This is going to be hard, I hate talking about myself and I really struggle to ask for advice or help. I'm surprised I was brave enough to even join a forum if I'm honest but everyone had been supportive thus far so I have been reassured slightly. I really don't know where to start or...

    Need Advice *possible trigger*

    Hadn't SHed for a few months (don't like to count, makes it worse), then a few weeks ago I SHed. It has healed, but scared. I resisted for every day since then, but tonight finally cracked. This times its worse though. I didn't just do it once like before. The advice I need is about the wounds...

    Special Diet

    Being on social assistance one of my friends was mentioning to apply for special diet. Are you able to get the special diet benefits for a mood disorder? Would prefer if there was a Canadian on here that could shed insight if not it's all good. Later gators.

    Next Day Thoughts

    I'm new and I've been self harming most of my life but recently its getting worse. My mom saw and told me if I did it again she'd put me away and last night I hurt myself worse than before. I'm not sure what to do or think anymore.

    Illogical fear of being forgotten by MHT

    I was assessed by the crisis team yesterday and a nurse is due to visit today. No exact time was given but I was told she'd come. I can't remember if I was told she'd call first. The logical part of my brain knows this is how they work and I won't be forgotten but there's a voice in my head...

    Effort goes unnoticed

    Most people in my life don't know I SH. They don't even know I have issues with Anxiety and Depression. I've now gone 3 and a half months without SH, and even the people close to me who know the truth act as if it's nothing. They don't understand that I'm still struggling with it everyday. That...

    Healing self harm

    Okay, so I stupidly Sh'd the other day, I really really regret it now. I have a Christening in 2 weeks and have a dress that will show my thighs & I am worried that my cuts won't heal in time. I am applying savlon by the shed load but it isn't making much difference. Any idea's what else I can...
