I’m so very sad you feel you can’t cope, I know it doesn’t help to say a lot of us have been there .. and lived another day.
today is a bad day for you, how many ties have you felt like this ? Only to have some good days again?
I know I can go through these feelings in such a small space of time.
Only 10 days ago I was in complete crisis, self harming and doing stupid things. The past few days however have been really lovely and I wonder why I ever felt like that.
Tomorrow is another day for us all ... good or bad.
Let’s get through this together .
massive hugs 🤗

Please don't, this feeling will pass, it will. It doesn't seem like it and life is so overwhelming sometimes but please live. There is a future for you, better times will come.
It may seem like no one cares, but we care here.
Please keep replying and expressing your feeling, this will pass.

I know how it feels to be overwhelmed, I get that a lot too. Each time my husband and I argue I feel like harming myself and think of suicide. Or I throw things. It's such a stormy condition!

Can your GP refer you back to the mental health team. I dont know what meds (if any) that your on but maybe you need a change. Does your GP have a CPN there, mine has one that works one day a week but they can get a message to her if its urgent and she usually phones me back. It looks like its going to be a nice day today so why dont you and UH try to get out for a walk .
If all that fails phone 111 and asked to be referred to the duty psychiatrist
