I don't know what to do. I can't face any more. I really can't go on but apparently I shouldn't kill myself.

Can you get yourself committed?
Should I?

I can't think of an alternative. I don't know what to do, but I can't just sit here. Is there anyone I can talk to?

UterusUterusGhali Sat 30-Mar-13 15:29:35

Shit, meant to namechange.

Consils Sat 30-Mar-13 15:31:56

Have you been to the GP?

UterusUterusGhali Sat 30-Mar-13 15:34:44

Yeah but not recently. I'm on sertraline and lithium for panic attacks.

I can't wait till Tuesday. I won't last that long.

If you're feeling that bad (and it sounds like you are) then you need to go to A&E who should be able to help you access emergency mental health services.

Please call Samaritan's who may be able to offer better/more immediate advice 08457 90 90 90.

UterusUterusGhali Sat 30-Mar-13 15:36:23

I feel kinda resigned to it now tbh. I've reached this weird plateau of misery and have a clarity of thought as to what I have to do.

UterusUterusGhali Sat 30-Mar-13 15:37:06

Suicide I mean. Not hospitalisation.

TheAccidentalEgghibitionist Sat 30-Mar-13 15:37:27

Do you have a mental health team you can contact? Otherwise go to the GP or phone OOH.
I'm so sorry you're going though this. I understand the mental pain. Please listen though. This will not last. You will come out of this and feel better. You will experience joy and pleasure again in your life. Hang on to that.
If you need to talk you can call the Samaritans. flowers

UterusUterusGhali Sat 30-Mar-13 15:38:10

The Samaritans just listen don't they? I need help.

UterusUterusGhali Sat 30-Mar-13 15:39:36

There will never be happiness again. There can't be. I need to stop the pain and protect myself.

UterusUterusGhali Sat 30-Mar-13 15:41:05

I called 111 recently and they couldn't have been less helpful.

LadyStark Sat 30-Mar-13 15:42:05

Roughly what area are you in OP? Local authority etc - let's find out what emergency care you can access.

You don't need to make this decision right this second. Maybe a talk might help for now?

RubyrooUK Sat 30-Mar-13 15:43:52

Uterus, I am completely unqualified to help you out here but saw your post and didn't want it to go unanswered. Hopefully someone more experienced will be here soon.

Suicide is not the answer. You are ill and that is why you think it might be. Is there anyone who can take you to A&E right now?

LadyStark Sat 30-Mar-13 15:44:43

Are you home alone?

You can call 999, this is an emergency.

Snuppeline Sat 30-Mar-13 15:46:15

Bless you. I can hear your pain in your writing but I second the other poster who said you will feel better. You are considering hospitalisation which is great. I think you should go to your nearest A&E. Bring your prescription medication with you. Write out a brief letter where you state that you are suicidal and want emergency psychological help. That way you don't have to explain too much. Write out what medicati

DizzyHoneyBee Sat 30-Mar-13 15:46:45

Don't make any decisions now. Phone the Samaritans, talk on here, go out for a walk, do whatever it takes to put any decision on hold.
If it really comes down to it, phone for an ambulance. They won't mind and will help. Or go to your local police station and ask for help, neither will they.

Snuppeline Sat 30-Mar-13 15:47:58

Sorry, on phone. I meant to finish with write out the medication you are using and why you are taking them. Write it down now, get your medication and put your coat on. Then go. Please seek help now.

UterusUterusGhali Sat 30-Mar-13 15:50:35

Might try a&e. Ridiculously I'm thinking of work tomorrow. I don't want to let the team down by not going in. But I can't face it.

lyndie Sat 30-Mar-13 15:55:11

Go to A&E - they will have a CPN on duty or mental health assessment team they can contact.

TheAccidentalEgghibitionist Sat 30-Mar-13 15:55:57

Uterus, is there someone that you can call that you feel safe with, a friend or family member? You shouldn't be alone. I second going to A&E.

I know you are in indescribable mental pain now but hang on in there, this will pass. I have been where you are now, it was terrible and I couldn't see any way out and couldn't suffer the pain, but it passed. Slowly but surely, it's like climbing out of a deep hole towards the light but you can do it.

You need support right now, this minute, to get you through. Talking can really help.

Sunnywithshowers Sat 30-Mar-13 17:03:32

Uterus, I hope you're okay and getting help at A&E. Massive hugs.

I have been suicidal before and it did pass. xxx

I hope you have gone to A&E for support.

It is a horrid feeling, but the fact you are asking for help shows that part of you wants to be here, to survive.

I am currently IP because I am suicidal so if you need any info about that I am your woman smile

Take care.

TheAccidentalEgghibitionist Sat 30-Mar-13 18:12:10

Uterus, let us know how you are, whenever you can. We are worried.

RubyrooUK Sat 30-Mar-13 18:12:45

I too am hoping you have gone to A&E. Do check back in when you can.

UterusUterusGhali Sat 30-Mar-13 18:15:41

Hi I'm at home. My mum said the kids would be taken away if I was committed. I'm going to go to bed.
