The past two days all I've had is dark thoughts. Struggling. Urge to self harm is so strong. Can't see a way out of this. Didn't help myself tonight as I watched a film that is a trigger for me.....

Hi Karl,
Do you have a crisis team you can phone? If not see your GP or ring 111 if in the UK.
Hope you feel better soon.
Take care

I see a counsellor twice a week. But I cancelled my appointment today as I didn't want to talk about things. Does this make me weak??

Thank you. I promise to try.
Trouble sleeping tonight, I have my comfort blanket (a monkey) with me. I've had the monkey for 22 years. Silly but it helps in bad times xx

No worries, there aren’t any correct answers for those sorts of things. Can only be honest. Hope you’re feeling better. I think the monkey sounds sweet. I’ve definitely considered bringing some of my old stuffed animals from my parents’ house to my apartment. There’s just not too much room for them to move in with me hahaha.

:) The monkey is named Gilly. I also have a collection of toy story toys. May sound silly but they help me feel secure. Feel mentally drained tonight. I'm off work tomorrow so going try and chill out a bit
