Hello, I don't want to get in any trouble with the forum so I will refrain from typing out the whole word or discussing it at length, but I am having a lot of trouble. I have been having s******* thoughts every single day recently, and it is really taking a toll on me. I was hoping that anyone who knows what the censored word is and could relate and/or provide assistance could start a private message/conversation with me, so we can talk about it more without breaking any of the forum guidelines. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this.

Hi,
You can say self-harm, we just don't want ways of how you self harm and actual words of what you do.
Please if your not sure message a moderator ( in green) or admin ( in black)
Thanks for asking

Ok, that is good to know. I still think the private messages might be useful, but thanks for clarifying :)

many people here have the same problem and I believe you will get some help from them.
Do you have any hobbies ?

Hi JustinS,

I would strongly recommend that you stay on the public threads so there is a large group of people giving you support. PMs are great for social chit chat but it puts an enormous burden on one individual trying to help you through a dark spell. This is an international forum and people will reply to your posts around the clock. :hug:

Have you spoken to your GP about how you’re feeling?

Idk what GP stands for, and I get what you're saying but there's some things that I just can't say or don't feel comfortable saying in a pubic forum, if you know what I mean. I will probably try both honestly.

Stands for General Practitioner - just means doctor.

Have you spoken to your doctor?

It’s worth bearing in mind that you are completely anonymous here. In my opinion, you shouldn’t be going into any more detail about self harm by PM than is permitted on the forum. This is purely because everyone here has MH issues which can be triggered. Often, the weight of someone else’s pain is too overwhelming for an individual and it causes them more suffering and anxiety.

My suggestion would be to make an appointment with your doctor and talk through how you’re feeling. You sound very low at the moment - sometimes a chemical imbalance can rob us of all enjoyment and antidepressants can give you your life back. :hug:

We have a sub forum for Self Harm - it might be worth you reading through some of those threads as they might be relevant to your situation. click on FORUMS on the top left hand side of the blue bar at the top of the page. It’s a drop down menu...just scroll down.

I think you have come to the right place for support. Just need to find a bit of confidence in posting anonymously. x
