    Tayla,

    Its hard to see and thing of good things when feeling down. These are the times to use your safety plan. Reach out for help. Hold onto that part inside that is telling you there is still hope.

    Waves of helplessness and hopelessness rise and fall. Use whatever strategies you can to ride these out. Smoother sailing is on the other side.

    You are worth it. Your contributions here are valued. I value you. You are worthwhile.

    Hugs.


    Alasdayr.

    Thank you Alasdayr, I appreciate the kind words and they mean a lot. I feel the same way about you.

    I was in a very dark place last night and still am, and wanted to harm myself, I never did, because I thought of my Psychiatrist and I don't mean in a creepy way, what I mean is that he may feel ashamed of me and like he failed me. I don't know, I guess I'd have to ask. If I did do something I'd say "can I tell you something please?", then say it and probably start crying.

    We are letting you all know we're closing this and all Tayla's other threads except for Looking for some self care and coping strategy tips please.

    Keeping to one thread makes it easier for members to keep up with Tayla's story, and saves having to repeat information.
