    If you’ve looked at the news you’ll probably have heard there’s been a massive explosion in Scotland. It’s in my town and people I know live very close to where it happened. Hate when these things happen so close to home

    Hey @independent_
    Is everyone okay? How are you doing? <3

    Hey @lovemimoon I'm ok, I'm a few miles away. there's not much info about people closer. Hoping everyone is ok, it's very worrying

    Hopefully everyone's okay.
    We're here if you need to talk. ❤

    Got told to go to emergency centre for self harm. I did it a few days ago. They would be annoyed if I go

    Multiple emotional breakdowns this week. Everyone keeps telling me to get signed off work for a bit, but I can't allow myself because I get full of guilt for leaving my work with others to deal with

    Accidentally triggered myself by reading an old conversation with someone. Thoughts keep popping up in my head.

    My dogs ashes are just sat by the TV in a box... Nobody can face doing anything with them. It's breaking me. It's been so weird not being followed, sat on, greeted at the door..

    I don't know what just happened to me and I feel so ashamed of myself.

    I couldn't breathe, my mind was overwhelmed, I was physically shaking and crying. Suddenly, I'm curled up, crying and trembling my eyes out, apologizing to the poor guy on the phone for wasting his time with this 911 call. A kind lady helped me get home.

    I feel so drained yet so embarrassed.
    I feel bad for making everyone worried like this.
    For wasting their time.

    I just want to stop feeling like this.

    All I want from this world is to be OK. Thats it. Not even happy, just OK.

    Why.
    The dark is the only place I feel like I belong...

    @Salix_alba_2019 ah just bit overwhelmed tbh. My own fault for stopping meds I guess.

    Sounds like you’re struggling too <3 sending hugs!

    @independent_ oh god that part wasn't supposed to be there. Accidental draft post right there , I've flagged it to be deleted. Apologies if it triggered you

    Awww man, sorry to hear that you've been struggling, it's awful isn't when things turn for the worst. How comes you stopped taking your meds if you don't mind me asking?

    @Salix_alba_2019 it’s alright, I just figured it was supposed to be there lol, I do that with the draft posts sometimes and my brain just totally ignores the fact the drafted bit is there.

    TW mentions weight and med side effects:
    They had a few side effects. Mostly tiredness and weight gain and they weren’t really helping anymore lol. Probably a stupid decision but I wasn’t doing well on them either for the last few weeks.

    I’m functioning on 2.5 hours of sleep today.

    @independent_ Phewwwww, not just me then lol

    I fully resonate with you on that one, the long-term implications of some meds are an absolute pain. You know yourself best and if it isn't working then that's okay. I did exactly the same thing last year and my inner mum voice wants to persuade you not to go cold turkey to prevent a harsh relapse in your MH. Have you spoken to GP by any chance? 2.5 hours of sleep sounds awful :(

    @Salix_alba_2019 I need to phone them really. Was going to phone them yesterday but managed to talk myself out of it. I have 15 minutes to get my act together and decide if I’m calling them today instead.

    Home doesn't feel like home anymore. This city doesn't feel like home anymore.
    I felt more at home down south at the start of the week

    It's times like this where I miss my eating disorder. I'm upset for letting myself go

    I’m going to complain to pals tomorrow in the Hospital. Because I was in a&e with very bad self harm for the first time with it being that extreme And the crisis team didn’t even want to chat with me.
