I'm an emotional wreck today. Too much fear and grief and worry. Wanted to end it all. Self harmed over and over. Don't know what to do. Telling other people makes me feel like I'm an attention seeker. But if I keep it to myself I get worse. I'm so stuck...

I'm sorry about all of this. I really hope you'll feel better soon. Be kind to yourself and try to take good care of yourself. Even if it's something small like watching a favorite movie or listening to music. I used to do that as a way to stop self harming. It helps distract me from awful thoughts.

Other things that help me are the right kind of medications and therapy. I think talking to people about this is very important. Wishing the best for you.

If you’re thinking about suicide and are in immediate danger, please call your local emergency number (i.e. in the UK call 999, in the USA or Canada call 911, in Australia call 000 and in New Zealand call 111) or call the international emergency number of 112.

If you have been affected by the contents of this thread and would like to speak to someone about your feelings you can call one of the following helplines:

In the UK and Ireland, the Samaritans can be contacted on 116 123.
In the US, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255.
In Canada, the Suicide Prevention Service on 1.833.456.4566.
In Australia, the crisis support service Lifeline is on 13 11 14.
In New Zealand, the Need to Talk service is on 1737 or 080017371737.
Other international helplines can be found at www.befrienders.org.

If you search for helplines in South Africa on the Befrienders site there are two you can call.

Please don't end your life. If you wait it out these bad feelings will pass and you'll feel better. Talk about it with anyone you can, especially a crises helpline as those are professionals who can help. Hope you feel better soon❤

How are you now?

Please ask for help, it is not attention seeking, you are not well and we care about how you are so please keep talking.

When i feel very bad i turn everything off and get in bed. Eventually i fall asleep and when i wake up, i have a bit more energy to fight again.

Rest, take good care of yourself, eat well, get some fresh air as staying indoors can make you feel much worse. Avoid stress and keep talking to us and we will al try and support you.

im so sorry you are feeling this way. We all think about suicide at one point. Some are more fortunate than others where they have people that are around them to talk to when they're feeling this way. And others, like me, dont really have anyone at all. What stops me from suicide is knowing that I will get through this and that i will overcome these problems. I want you to know that all of us on this board care about YOU! We feel your pain and we want you to know that we are here for you. YOU MATTER
