TW: My Safety Plan - To keep myself accountable.

So I'm starting this thread (I hope that's OK Smiley Happy ) for myself to keep myself accountable this afternoon and onwards in keeping safe from SH especially tonight. 

So I've drafted up a safety plan for myself this evening and I'm going to try my absolute hardest to stick to it. Here it is:

 

STEP 1: My warning signs:

  • Withdrawing from family/friends.
  • Anxiety/Panic Attacks
  • Feeling overwhelmed which can escalate to the following
  • Unable to fall asleep/Night terrors
  • No appetite and not wanting to eat (edited)

STEP 2: My reasons to live

 
  • My sister
  • ReachOut
  • Some of my closest friends
  • Netball
  • Swimming
  • Travelling across Europe
  • KHL counsellor

STEP 3: Make my environment safe

 
  • Remove or get rid of anything that could be used to harm myself
  • Avoid people who upset me
  • Stay with someone and don't be alone in a room

STEP 4: Things I can do by myself

 
  • Go for a walk outside
  • Play with Willow & Oscar (Puppas Smiley Happy )
  • Watch a favourite film, YouTube clip or TV show
  • Listen to Self-Love playlist
  • Practice relaxation techniques like breathing exercises, mindfulness and meditation
  • Take some time out to treat myself to a small thing I usually enjoy

 

 

STEP 5: Friends and family I can talk to

  • My mum 
  • My Psychologist 
  • One of my friends (possibly...)
  • ReachOut Smiley Happy

 

STEP 6: Professional support

  • Lifeline 13 11 14
  • Kids Helpline - Webchat or Phone
  • My Psychologist

 

And, yeah. I think that's about it Smiley Happy

ahhh it’s so good ! are you happy with it ? 

not sure if you are still struggling with making your environment safe; so remove anything to harm yourselve like you’ve mentioned, avoid triggers if possible and even just being with one of your pups is a good way to stay safe Smiley Happy
