Have been sat here for two hours in a semi catatonic state. I dragged my nails down my legs and scratched my thigh with scissors. I feel so hopeless, pointless and useless. Dc deserve so much better than me.
I don't know why I'm posting. Just to get it out I suppose.
We’re so sorry to hear that you’re feeling like this, OP. We wanted to share Mind's information with you – it has practical tips on what you can do when you feel like this and where to get urgent help.
Samaritans are there for you too, 24/7, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 116 123. You can also see the resources in our Mental Health webguide.
We're now going to move your thread to the Mental Health topic.
The support you're getting from other MNers is fantastic and we hope it helps. But we hope that you can also reach out and get some RL help to get you through this too.
Thank you for your replies. I've been feeling really distressed over my relationship with my mum and I hate that making the decision over cutting ties is on me- the weight of it weighs a tonne. I don't know what to do and my brain melted this evening.
I had a bath and spoke to my husband for ages when he got home from work a little while ago. Feeling slightly calmer now.
Sorry for posting while all in a dirge. I'm bipolar and can easily fall into a misery ditch!
Glad you're feeling a bit better. I hope you manage to come to a decision you're comfortable with about your mum, it sounds really difficult. I'm glad you have your husband to talk things over with. Take care x
