Rescue me

I need rescuing. Helplessness.

I can't find information on this. Can anyone explain it to me.

I come from a broken home of two broken people.

I look to the GP and psychiatrist and co to rescue me. Embarrassingly. They don't know! Would never tell.

Any ideas? Anyone else feel this way?

Thanks
Kelly

All I can find on the net is stuff relating to borderline personality and that doesn't relate. It's different to that pushing and pulling thing.

Maybe I just want love, care and understanding? I've had that growing up but the last few years have been difficult and I'm feeling in need of help with that.

I wish I could understand this.

i think it's natural to look for someone/people to rescue us, but i don't think things work like that - primarily i think we need to sort things out ourselves - although appropriate support & understanding does help.

I agree.

Can you ever get over having been depressed? The suicidal thoughts and attempts. The racing negative thoughts. The ambulances. The police cars. The psychiatrists. The blood tests. Assessments. How do you move on.

I need rescuing from that. I needed rescuing before though. That's why I fell so deep into the pit of despair.

Drinking wine, listening to London Grammar Strong and tears dripping onto my desk.

What to do with myself?

i do feel it is potentially possible to move on from it all, make progress & more fully resolve things. People can & do. They are no guarantees & i think it takes a lot of work.

i have a lot of crazy stuff in my own history, crime, addiction, severe mental illness, sections, arrests, suicide attempt, etc. i'm 13 years sober (despite a few very occasional slips) - 15 years since last in psychiatric hospital, fully discharged from services for over 2 years, 10 years of relative stability. i do feel i've made a lot of progress & come a long way - from who/where i was. Life isn't without it's difficulties still, but things are not as dire as they were.

Maybe seek out some more positive, uplifting & supportive views & people. i used to listen to Madness Radio a lot - Shows Archive | Madness Radio

That has a lot of more uplifting & hopeful narratives.

i suppose try & take a little bit at a time to deal with, & look at what kinds of things can be done to change things.
