Hi intelgal :hug:

sorry to hear you are finding it difficult at the moment. Hope you are feeling better soon. I have not felt suicidal myself so not sure what to say, but I think it would be helpful to find someone you could really confide in and ask them to offer you support whilst you get through this. A trusted friend, companion, family member? If this is not a possibility then how about a helpline of some description, the Samaritians, Saneline, a local helpline or even NHS Direct if you feel in immediate danger. I used to work on two helplines for a number of years and people who rang in used to say they felt better by just talking freely.

Keep in touch

yodel :)

Hey, Sorry to keep banging on about myself. I really hope when I am brighter \I will be able to contirbute to this forum in other ways. I feel really ill today, bad cough sore throat etc. My suicide thoughts have become really bad this afternoon though I have brought myself to a place where I dont have access to the ways I plan to do it it. Do you think this is just cos I am now physically ill as well as mentall ill. I ahve not been able to keep my AD's down as I keep vomitting. To top it all off I am at work tonight as GP said it would prob be the best thing for me.lus we are so short staffed I would let evryone down too..ah well. well I have got that off my chest
thanks:oops:

If you have not been able to keep your meds down because of being physically ill you should seek further info from your GP. I think i understand
the reasoning behind your gp's decision for you to keep at work but does he know that your meds are not working right now. You really need professional advice so please seek out someone who can give you that.

On here we don't know all the answers so please take care :hug::hug:

God I'm so sorry, I totally missed this post when I asked how you are... really sorry about that...
You contribute just by being here :hug:
That's good that you've had the strength to be somewhere that you can't hurt yourself... I really admire that, and wish I had that level of self-control.
I'm at work tonight... keep me company if you like!!
