Recently been talking to friends and family about my suicide attempt and how I’ve been feeling..

anyone else find it to be the most awkward interaction ever made? I feel embarrassed in a way and also like I’m projecting this blanket of awkwardness

Please do not feel embarrassed Phill as suicide is a very serious matter that can be helped by stopping and trying to talk things through as we all have a life to life even if we struggle with it too. Have you spoken to your GP doctor about how you feel.

It is always good to speak about what you are going through to your friends and loved ones because they can help you overcome. It will be also good to see a doctor.

Thanks for your reply , I’ve been to the GP and have been on sertraline and sleeping tablets for when I need them and I like to think I’m on the up, it’s more when the topic of it comes up I can’t help but feel embarrassed or awkward watching their faces how I explain what depression can feel like

It can sadly feel so hard to explain how our depression makes us feel and then they are not all that helpful.
