I'm feeling so bad right now. I can't stop crying and my mind keeps going to thoughts of hurting myself. I'm feeling so alone. I don't want to phone the doctor or anything as I'm sure I will snap out of it soon, and I can't phone helplines because I loose the ability to speak when I am like this.

Is anyone around to chat? Distraction is the only idea I have...

i know how that feels+

i know how that feels. All i can say is keep busy doing whatever you like to do. Maybe flicking an elastic band on your wrist and drawing cut marks with a red pen will help. I keep a chart in my bedroom and everyday i go without self harm i put a tick on it if i get enough ticks i buy myself something nice. Hang in there.

I'm ok, just kind of slipped into a quiet depression. Finding it very difficult to quiet the voice telling me there is a lot of alcohol, scapels and strong pain medication in the house. I am winning so far. It will get harder when I go to bed because I will be alone. I don't think I am safe alone.

Sounds like you need an evening of watching Mama Mia and drinking a bottle of fizz with a good friend. Make like a gay man for a while. Seriously, though, I hope your life goes better for you very soon. Try to enjoy it and not to shrink from it. This is still a wonderful world that we live in and I truly believe that the majority of people are good. Sometimes it feels as though the world is against you, but it really isn't.
