Are you OK @Angels333

Re: Self Harm

thinking of you @Angels333 💜💜💜
mental health and constant SH/SI thoughts is very tiring. please try to look after yourself the best you can and reach out for those supports even if it means going to hospital to help keep you safe.

Re: Self Harm

Thanks @outlander It is so tiring.   I'm exhausted by the SH then the anxiety in between .    I think I should be in hospital but I can't afford to miss out on income from work.   It's a tough situation.   If my Psychiatrist insists then I will go.   At the moment he has just offered it as an option. 

Re: Self Harm

Hearing you @Angels333 i struggle with sh and have attempts to my name unfortunately but its not as bad as 3 years ago. Still have those days sometimes weeks but working on my coping strategies has worked well. Hospital isnt an option for me for many reasons so can see how it would also be tough for you as well.
At least you know its an option but i hope something works for you before you reach that level.
