I don't think they will accept me for therapy but I don't think I will have it if they do
have blocked it out ,wouldn't know where to begin and would probably overdose loads if I did x

am having dark scary thoughts
im trying so hard not to take an overdose
I don't want to be conscious

they make me fee spaced out and bock out thoughts
im trying really really hard but I just don't want to have to think

I know people will say try other things but this is the only thing that helps
apart from talking to hermit but even then the need can be overwhelming

Please Lu you need to see your GP or pdoc. There will be other medication that would work better for you and stop you feeling so low. .have you thought about doing a course of CBT on low self esteem. This NHS page is a good start

have taken so many this year
im trying really really hard to stop but don't know how xxxx
My psychologist told me yesterday that’s its so hard to stop self destructive traits if you have an urge to do so, that’s because as you say, we don’t know how to due to emotional Dysregulation.
So, we need an exit plan. That is a choice point where when you have an urge you have an alternative, less damaging, path to follow. I’m compiling one over the weekend to try to stop smoking and drugs. I’ll post my exit plan once complete and maybe it will give you ideas for your own. Take care.
