Re: Help with Self-Harm Urges

Hospital can be a scary place @redhead Smiley Sad I'm glad you are there though. Is there something you can do while you're waiting to take your mind off everyone around you? Maybe some of the games threads?

I've been here nearly 8 hours and I still haven't seen psych Dr. This stupid fucking place is shit.

Re: Help with Self-Harm Urges

I'm sick of waiting in emergency. I want to go home. They won't tell me when the doctors coming.

Re: Help with Self-Harm Urges

That's very frustrating @redhead. I understand wanting to leave the hospital but that's where you're safest for now. And your safety is the most important thing. Hang in there please.

 

Maybe you've tried different distracting activities already but could you keep finding ways to keep yourself occupied until you can see the doctor? What's something you can try for now?

Re: Help with Self-Harm Urges

I just want to go home. They wouldn't let me leave last night and now I still have to wait see crisis team. I saw them yesterday, what's the fucking point. Nothing changed just more panic attacks and no sleep. The voices and talking which isn't helping.

Why bother stay safe. I'll die eventually, so why not today.

Re: Help with Self-Harm Urges

@redhead panic attacks and lack of sleep sound awful. Getting help may seem pointless at times but the thing is, you've made it this far. It's about getting through one day at a time (I know it can feel excruciating sometimes). The future is unknown and full of possibilities. Showing up for ourselves a day at a time is the best and bravest thing we can do. You're really strong and brave redhead. You have it in you to get through this. 

 

Music is wonderful. Life would be really barren without it. What kind of music are you into? Also, are there any games you could play (on your phone or maybe the game threads on RO)?

I'm sorry you have to go to the psych ward @redhead, but I think that's great you are getting some help. Some respite and support sounds like the best option now and i'm glad you are safe.

Re: Help with Self-Harm Urges

Thanks for letting us know @redhead. It's great you stayed there even when waiting to see the doctor was getting really difficult. I'm glad you're in a safe place for now. Like we say here on RO, it's about taking it one day at a time and doing whatever it takes to take care of ourselves.
