Re: Flashbacks

I kinda lied, I'm not ok...I'm never really ok. I'm always suicidal and I'm sick of it.

Re: Flashbacks

@redhead can you call Case Manager and have a yarn? Am I right that being home is a bit of a challenge, or am I off? Let me know..

Re: Flashbacks

my case manager is only available during office hours.

home is great, but yeh its a challenge @Bree-RO like i have access to all the ways i can hurt myself now.
and its too hard to use my strategies sometimes because i just dont want to, like i just want to give in and dying would make everything better.
if i was dead i wouldnt have to remember this stuff or feel this pain.

dont get me wrong, i doubt id act on these thoughts tonight, i just wish i could

Re: Flashbacks

I'm ok. I'm getting used to the idea of being alive at home.
Even though I don't want to I've been using my strategies and managing ok. It's hard and it constantly changes but I guess I'm doing my best to get through it.

That's great to hear, @redhead thanks for letting us know! Smiley Happy

 

Coping is hard, but most things that are worth it are (unfortunately). It's made harder by the fact that it doesn't feel that way when you're in the thick of it and your own mind is constantly screaming insults at you. But if you can take even half a step forward every day (or one step forward, and half a step back), then six months from now, you'll be able to look back and go "holy shit, I actually got pretty far".
