Re: Having thoughts I shouldn't..

Thanks for being brave and sharing that with us @mspaceK. Do you need medical attention?

Re: Having thoughts I shouldn't..

@mspaceK that's good to hear you're okay, physically. It might be a good idea to still see a medical professional (maybe later?) to make sure you're totally okay. 

 

I'm really sorry by the way. I can understand the feelings of shame around it. I hope you are able to go easy on yourself because no one's perfect and sometimes when we're under a lot of stress, we can revert to unhealthy coping strategies. You're clearly going through a lot even if sometimes it feels like there's nothing wrong. What do you think of giving Kids Help Line a call (1800 551 800) to talk to someone about what you're going through? Having a real conversation can make a huge difference. To me it sounds like you need to find ways to de-stress and that's hard for you because you mentioned you feel guilty for taking time to relax. It would be really good to explore this topic with a therapist  - are you currently seeing a therapist by the way?

 

What are your plans for the rest of the evening? Is there anything you can do to relax a bit?

Yeah I am seeing someone on Wednesday. I might give KHL a call. I'm going to watch movies with my family tonight.

@mspaceK great to hear your getting connected with some support!

watching movies with family sounds like a great way to de-stress. you know yourself better than anyone else, so make that call if you think its the best thing for you right now.
