@j95 I know that it feels so shit rn, but I just want to take a min to slow things down and remind you that you are a trooper, you have dealt with incredibly hard stuff in the past and you can get through this! I get that it feels unfair and unbearable. But I'm wondering if these thoughts are adding fuel to the anger you're already feeling and whether that's doing you any good right now? Maybe we need to slow things down and focus on what you can do from the list that @DruidChild has mentioned for now? And perhaps come back to dealing with these difficult feelings when you're not feeling so angry and frustrated - What do you reckon?
Here's a quick recap from @Bree-RO post to jog your memory:
"Hey @j95, you've been through so much today. I can't imagine how frustrating this is, you definitely aren't hated. Lots of people care about you @DruidChild @N1ghtW1ng @FootyFan26 @Ngaio-RO and myself for instance. In your safety plans you have some cool strategies to help you out when you're feeling small like this.
I will list some for you

hi @Sans-RO I haven't seen you in a long time.
I'm not doing those stupid things it won't change this situation will it

@j95 yes! I've been away - I'm glad I'm back though!
You're right, it won't change the situation.
That's the bit you can't control, right? What you can do though is change how it makes you feel - you're the boss of that. I can't tell you what to do to stop feeling this way but I do know from our past conversations that doing stuff like swimming or going for a run or mindfulness has helped you feel better. And what I know with 1000% clarity is that you deserve to feel better mate.

Hey @j95 it's clear that you're very angry right now. I'm wondering if it might be time to take a break and talk to someone over the phone? I understand that this is hard considering your most recent experience with headspace, but I'm aware that this has helped in the past when you've been in this zone. I'm wondering if there's another counselling service like Lifeline or SCBS that you can try for now?
*Also, a heads up that some of the stuff about violence against the service is against the community guidelines, so I have had to take that out of your posts.*
