charlotte this is so difficult for you. if you're having a panic attack, that's probably why people are pointing at you. i know you've talked about hospital and are afraid that it's going to take away your control, especially with regard to s/h. i think though that you may need to rethink this. in the short term you are going to lose some control, but so that you can gradually learn to regain control. you're in a situation where you are unsafe and can't see a way of getting back that control.
i don't think anyone really wants to go into hospital, but if you had a heart condition and needed specialist help, you'd go into hospital. do you think you can look at the situation in that light.
we don't want you to be hurting like this, we don't want to lose you. if you don't go into hospital, can you think of some ideas which will help you to cope - talk to your family about where you are now, where you want to be and how you're going to get there.

ok well i'm sending you a huge hug. i get the feeling that it's less abut wanting to die and more about stopping the pain. at the moment it's not under your control, but what if you could control it. maybe it would still come back at times, because we all have pain in our lives at times. but imagine if it wasn't as all-consuming. can you think of 5 things you'd like to do? they could be big things like travelling, or just small things like being able to throw out all the clothes you hate. i'd like to just be able to go somewhere - no planning, no buses or trains, just get in a car and go. what about you? hugs Judith xxx

Hi Charlotte

I'm in a really bad place myself at the moment but I wanted to send you loads of big hugs and hope this horrendous phase ends soon for you and you can start to feel a bit better too. I really do feel for you.

Please keep going, you are worth much more than this

xx
