Flare up (TW: self harm, suicidal thoughts)
Hi all,The last few days I’ve been experiencing a real flare up in my mental health: anxiety and depression appear to be circling round each other; my hallucinations are constant and my self harm has been a lot more frequent (I’m keeping myself safe though). Unfortunately with my voices being worse, that’s really triggered my suicidal feelings as well- the voices I hear are very threatening and encouraging me to hurt myself. I’m feeling really hopeless and lonely at the moment and just overwhelmed and scared. I’m trapped in an unhappy place at home and getting hurt and I hate being stuck here. I just want to reach out. I don’t know what to say. My therapist is in annual leave and so I won’t get to speak to her for a while and I’m scared to tell the chaplain (who I’m really close to) how bad I’m really feeling when we speak tomorrow in case I worry her. I just need a hug.
