When i was younger I would self harm. It got to be a bad habit, one that I’ve mostly got a handle on. But it’s still a thought i have to do this day. And on occasion i have resorted to it as a way to release that pressure. When i have done that, its not bern about suicide, its been about coping. At the moment my headspace isn’t very good, and I’m thinking on it. I want to hurt myself, I’m wondering if it will help ease those suicidal feelings. Does anyone else do this? Sort of like a coping method i guess. And yeah I realise its not an ideal one, but am starting ro feel a bit desperate for some relief

Maybe you need another therapist for support until yours comes back. Keep posting so we know how your doing.💚

Feeling so down and desperate, like I have to do something, no matter what.
Listening to music and trying to push away thoughts.
