Red, talk to us. Don't do anything else tonight.

Why are you feeling aggressive?

I asked my boyfriend to read up on ED so he knew what I was going through something you'd have thought he'd have done a while ago.
He didn't. Why? Because facebook, youtube + his car are more important.

I can't stand it anymore.
I might just take the pills I have. Don't know what they'll do mind.

I can't take it anymore.

Hi RedRoseBeauty

It certainly is tough when someone doesn't do what you'd like the to do. There is a saying I like - if one way doesn't work - "try another way". Why don't you see if you can get the information to your boyfriend in a different way. Perhaps you could find a good Youtube video on eating disorders or a good website that you could share with him.

Rather than hurting yourself how bout speaking to the Samaritans? They are available 24 hours a day. They are real good at those times when you can't take it any more! Their number is on our getting help page http://www.mentalhealthforum.net/getting-help/

Also worth remembering unlucky's signature line - "These thoughts will pass!" They always do!

Hang in there!

Easiest way with Samaritans is if you get someone you don't like is to finish the call and ring back and get someone different. If it doesn't work you can always ask to speak to someone different. They should respect your request.

I think we should give the Samaritans some feedback as a few too many people are saying they don't like some of the attitudes they are getting from some Samaritans volunteers.

Extremely patronising.

E.g. Aww c'mon love why are you starving yourself what good will that do eh?

It really pissed me off so I put the phone down. The woman I spoke to before kept sighing + the last time all three of them said it's late you should get to bed. I was like what the fuck? I don't want to sleep I want to talk.

That's not good at all, but! despair not. I knew exactly what you meant when you said patronising. Perhaps that is my own delusions sometimes, but I think everyone is below me and patronising when I'm in states like how I think you feel now.

I wish I could think of something to reduce your aggression, as this isn't good. :(

Hi there'
Sorry to hear you struggling. You obviously want help but it feels like noones listeningFor me I tried everything but still noone cared then self harm still it felt like noone didnt want to understand. Unfortunately how ever hard it is some people just cant understand. Sometimes we have to spell it out find the person you feel most comfortable with and tell them exactly how you feel. As hard as it is sometimes we need to really put ourselves forward. Thats the hardest thing when we feel like crap. So stand up for you remember you are just as important as the next person.
I hope you can get the help you so deserve.
