Sinking again

I don't know that I can keep living with all of this pain. Is it bad that I hope my ED kills me like everywhere says it could? Today I could tell that my counsellor was concerned because I'm acting like I do when things get super bad. I don't want to go back to hospital just as semester starts. Everything just hurts so badly in my head. 

Re: Sinking again

hey @DruidChild
im sorry your sinking again. im glad that you were able to speak to your counsellor today, has she/he suggested anything to do maybe increase your supports more ie see your gp weekly or more regularly and/or psychiatrist earlier?

Re: Sinking again

Hey @DruidChild,

I'm sorry tonight's not going well for you. Have you tried any self-care strategies tonight? I'm a bit behind with things but would you be up to contacting a helpline?

Re: Sinking again

Thanks @scared01 and @N1ghtW1ng Heart My counsellor is the only support I have atm. She suggested a strategy for dealing with a specific thing I was sad about and I did it but it just made me sadder tbh.

I'm having a yummy dinner so that will be good self care...and listening to music. I don't think I'm up for navigating a helpline tonight though, sorry. 

 

Re: Sinking again

its tricky with minimal supports perhaps seeing your gp regularly might be helpful @DruidChild
it sounds like some great self care though for tonight. do you have any other plans for tonight?

Re: Sinking again

No need to apologise @DruidChild Smiley Happy
Has your counselor suggested any other strategies that you could try tonight? A yummy dinner sounds great, what kind of music are you listening to?

Re: Sinking again

Unfortunately my gp is away at the moment @scared01. I'm worried about an ED-related physical thing that's pretty concerning though so I might end up going to my local medical centre. 

 

@N1ghtW1ng I just played shuffle on my saved songs on spotify so a bit of everything! Smiley Happy I think I'm supposed to call the crisis line when I feel this way but I really, really don't want to be made to go to hospital. 

 

 

Re: Sinking again

that sounds like a good idea @DruidChild if your worried about something then its deinently worth getting checked out
