    Please, please can someone help me?

    I am feeling really desperate and unsafe. I don't know who to turn to, or what to do. I am on the verge of committing suicide. I can't hold out much longer.

    I've had horrendous experiences with mental health services. I had a new assessment with a doctor who was hugely innapropriate. Said some really sleazy things to me and laughed at me.

    What do you all do?

    Overall I feel "fine". I do not actively want death or anything like that and my anxiety is manageable. But recently my intrusive thoughts have been picking up and so I am a little worried that they might turn into something more. What do you all do when you have intrusive thought?

    A positive message from me, I'm what I know from experience can often be the bleakest time of year. Perhaps someone can find some hope in it. A few months ago when I joined this forum I was in the pits of despair. Things had never been so bad, I was close to suicide and I was just focusing...
