    Really suicidal being controlled by food really makes everything not worth it
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    I can really hear how tough everything is feeling for you right now @Siena. Remember we're all here for you and you're not alone <3. Do you feel comfortable sharing with us if you're feeling safe at the moment?

    You have been doing so well to reach out and advocate for yourself. Sometimes we just need to take one day at a time. Maybe you can find some space this weekend to spend time with family or friends, or doing things you enjoy to take some control back. You can do this :).

    For anyone reflective at this time of year
    Guilt and regret only ever made a lot less room for motivation

    Just sat on the kitchen floor with no energy to move. I'm so drained and just don't wanna be here anymore. Life's too hard

    You are stronger than you think @Chloe234 <3 It's okay to feel drained. Things have been a lot recently and sometimes we just need those days where we can just zone out. You are doing so well and we are so proud of you for sticking it out :). Have you got anything to keep you busy this weekend?

    I rang 111 at half 2 yesterday, they ring at 4 to say it’s extend wait.111 rings me at 5am to say “oh hi I’m a call handler just chasing up the phone call you missed from the clinican” …. Yes Janet I missed it because it was at fucking 3am. Ended up just telling them not to bother in the end and to cancel the case . Feeling a little better than yesterday- just exhausted
    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    @IainJammyboy It's a really good question. It depends on the person - some feel more validated by having them, some feel self-conscious as others may visibly see their history of mental health issues. Overall though, it's definitely normal to have a sense of guilt as it can be something that happens very quickly in the spur of the moment, with the person having little-no control over. It's often something that is very impulsive, that happens very quickly, with the individual not thinking very far ahead, but needing instant relief. I'm not sure of your age but some people when they're old enough may get tattoos to cover them up, however, this is a personal choice, and it's not for everybody. Others choose to embrace their scars, once again, it depends on the person.

    I hope this helps somewhat <3

    I just realised, since its gonna be my birthday in a few days, even though I talk to a couple of people now I still don't really have anyone to spend the day with :/ I do have my family luckily, but I spend every day with them, this isn't going to be any special at all. I'm not sure what I would do without my family

    And about this. I wouldnt really know how approach people with this, I don't want to be the person who goes around letting everyone its their birthday haha. Although now that I think about it I kinda want to do that for the lols. After all there's nothing wrong with telling people it's your birthday

    So many traumatic memories over the past few days, I have 2 choices, destruct or try to help myself. I know it has to be the second one but the first is hard to avoid sometimes.
