Hey Keepsafe,

Do you mean on purpose or by accident?

I'm o.k though. It wasn't a pre thought of thing it was a "I have lost the plot knee jerk reaction" to a situation I ended up getting myself all worked up about.

I am stupid

Okay. I think I know what you mean. Been there. The car did'nt hit you then?

I don't think it's stupid....I know what it feels like. If there was another way you could have handled things you would have, I'm guessing.

No it didn't the driver wasn't very happy though. I really wasn't arsed at the time if it had. I guess I was out of control, I know I was. Still feel a bit dangerous now thats why I wanted to talk - but I don't know what about.

I thought I could handle going out - but it was to a hospital too and then it involved a multi storey car park and then it involved me getting all crazy like and running off and generally being like a mad lunatic sort of get a grip someone slap me round the face!

Are you saying you're on the edge?
It's a crap place to be.
I sometimes think...but only after silly stuff, that having the...sheer guts (not good guts though) to do something so life and death can show us that we have enormous strength in us.
Is there anything you can think of that would create the same massive boost of adrenaline and result in something really positive?
Just a thought.

Ermmm yes on the edge looking over. Something positive that can give me such a buzz, I didn't ever really think about it?????

Always negative stuff isn't it.

It just seems to be one big punch in the guts after the other. I even think for goodness sake get a grip - but if only it were that simple.

Get a grip of that great big stick and poke my eyes out.

Still thinking about the positive thing????!!!!

When I see my CPN and psychologist they always pull me up when I say something negative about myself. Sometimes I think "Well, yeah, they're hardly going to agree with me are they". Other times realise I'm exceptionally hard on myself.

It is so hard. So very hard, but try not to say such things about yourself. Even if you still think them try to practice being more compassionate in what you say. Instead of "I am stupid"....maybe say "I am in a bad way today" or "I handled that really badly but it was the best I could do at that moment". No matter how badly you handle something you never deserve to have your eyes poked out (even if it was a joke).

Thanks for the warm fuzzy vibes, appreciated.
Hope you have a better day tomorrow too if yours hasn't been too good either.

Are you near the end of the day though???

Yes, to answer your question, it is getting on past 11pm and if I were my happier self I'd be off to bed to read by now. But....I don't know when (or even if) I will get to bed. I use the internet/movies as a distraction from the kind of feelings that were resulting in my reckless desperate behaviour. Because I currently live alone in the middle of nowhere (by the sea!)...it would'nt do for me to get suicidal right now. Does that make any sense?

P.s. Just realized you were'nt talking to me! Oh my! I've had a very odd day today with all sorts of social blunders!

Grizzle Bear, you are right of course

It is easy to say though, sometimes I spend that much time looking down at the ground it's a wonder I am aware of whether it's day or night. I had a psyc appointment yesterday and she kept having to ask me to look up.

The trouble is, well you probably know self worth is very hard to get along with.

Thanks though you are 100% right and I a bit too ill somedays to remember.

Wow I like that group hug
KS

Still I'm saying in my head what a joke I am

I should go to my appointment tomorrow and say what happened but I won't.
