Re: they say ask for help

This sounds all too familiar. I would maybe like to try going private but that seems to be a lottery too as the industry seems full of charlatans who have no trouble getting onto the approved lists.

Just out of interest, do you work in the Mental Health industry?

Re: they say ask for help

I asked for help. It made matters much worse. All I got was endless VERY distressing questions . The most pointless question that every one asked is “what help do you want us to give you?” When that comes from mental health services, you know you’re not going to get any help. If they don’t know that...

Re: Why is there such a big deal about staying alive?

I know a few people who are suffering loved ones who have committed suicide and it is devastating for them. What's your situation exactly if you don't mind? Someone may be able to help. I’ve got back in touch with mental health services. Waiting for them to get back to me for another assessment. Ve...

Re: Why is there such a big deal about staying alive?

I have no hope that things will get better. I just wish I had the courage to top myself. I’m so afraid if getting it wrong and having to face tha shame.

No and I don’t see the point either. I will still be me and that’s what I don’t want. I don’t have it in me to change and I hate what I am.

Why is there such a big deal about staying alive?

I hate that there is such a stigma about not wanting to remain alive. Being told to think about those you leave behind is appalling. I live alone, I have family but don’t wish to be part of their lives and more importantly, I don’t want them to feel that they have to be looking out for me. I don’t w...

Mental Health Professionals

Has anyone ever had a long term positive experience from engaging with Mental Health Services? Either public health (NHS and Foundation Trusts) , private or charities? I’ve come to the conclusion that they are nothing but theorists, employing their opinions with little scientific evidence. In my exp...

Re: For when you're feeling particularly vulnerable

This forum, Mind’s Side by Side and Samaritans are all alike. Just a temporary distraction from hugely distressing , longstanding and ongoing complete mess. It’s not good to talk, that’s just an expression of self pity and dangerous introspection. I have no reason to be depressed and yet I am. This ...

Rational

I can’t think of a single reason to stay alive. I’ve been through the mental health system so many times but, ultimately no one can help me to change but myself. I haven’t got it in me.
