Are you having any therapy for this or seeing a p/doc at all. You need to find the reason behind you wanting to SH and this is where therapy comes in. Once you realise what triggers you , you can start to understand it
I’ve been SH for many years now tho it’s a lot less than it used to be. My worst times are when I feel I can’t cope with the stress anymore. I’ve been taught coping strategies and how to distract myself and while doing that can re evaluate what good can come form hurting myself

Please take care. Seek immediate Care like the emergency room or a crisis center. Then follow up with a psychiatrist and therapist. :hug:

I'm depressed and want to end my life but I don't do so because of the people who say they love me. I feel like I don't fit in this world and this world doesn't fit in me either. I have nothing to do in this world except feeling bad. At this point why keeping a positive mind about the world and myself when all you feel is emptiness, anxiety and depression. Every four months, I have to go to the mental hospital because feeling low.. Is this a life? I don't think so.

hi there

please dont hurt yourself. you dont deserve to be hurt. your body is very precious and took nine months to make. it is the product of all of your ancestors fighting hard to live and you are part of that cycle. your body is a tool that wants to be there to help you so please dont hurt it. try to say from now on that you will be a friend to your body and take care of it so that it can take care of you too.

if you feel angry or upset try to hold some ice cubes over your wrist, or cut up some plasticine or play doh or soap. workout at the gym (makes your mucles hurt and feel sore but you are hurting them to become stronger rather than weaker.

remember that you are a special person who does not deserve to be hurt, you are worthy of love and care, especially from yourself, even if you dont feel it. it doesnt matter what your mind says, or about the twisty feeling in your gut or the mistakes youve made or what other people have said, you deserve to be happy and loved, especially by you.

its okay to feel bad and to want to hurt yourself, the next time you do can you come on here and talk to us before you do anything and try to talk us through what you are thinking and feeling? it's okay, you have people here who care for you and we all support each other.

Here I had been so unwell for so long.
Had a husband then but I was existing,
I did use mental health services frequently,
At times as we have what's called a green card here I was allowed 2 respite days on the ward every 7 days, I was on the ward every several days. I would get through barely a week.
Looking back things weren't going that well.
At the time I was oblivious to how life really was.
Things will get better.
They really will.
Make use of the mental health services that's what they are there for.
Life is a process
Maintaining good mental health can take time.
Take care
