Thanks lovely. I've ordered a Chinese takeaway. I don't know how this will sound, but basically that it all seems so unfair that we have to go through all of this. When will it all end, apart from the obvious (suicide).?

if the words of Bros, "I can't answer that"

enjoy your food, and maybe an early night or a DVD might help.

I'm watching tv. The Chinese has just arrived, in the name of therapy:) I'm married, but separated (living on my own in supported accommodation. I have 4 children. I guess I'm not surprised that I get suicidal and lonely, not being able to live with my family.

Thanks Write. I feel like I have over-used services today, but at the same time as saying that, if I hadn't, I truly believe I wouldn't be here now.

Do you understand my concerns? I guess I can't win whatever I do. My brain is punishing me for asking for help for what I think is too much, but if I hadn't I would be punishing myself for doing nothing.

Yes I do understand I think. I feel the same in that I am scared if I ask too often they will get sick of me but at the end of the day it is your life you are fighting for. Think it s about feeling we are not worth it, or self hatred but you are worth it, you are worth so much. Sorry if I say wrong thing. Also with DBT that is part of the agreement , that they will talk to you when you are struggling using skills to help ypu get better at coping.

You haven't said the wrong thing lovely. I appreciate your messages. I just don't know how to get through this, even though I feel I should know.
