    Hey Forever Fallen Angel,

    You posted quite a few hours ago, how are you doing now? I'm sorry to hear how tough things are at the moment for you but it's good to hear that you're looking for ways to cope during it all, for example 'drawing Butterfly's on your wrists' - It's difficult finding what works for you while you're struggling. - TheSite.org have an article on List of distractions you can use when you do get the urge to self harm - http://www.thesite.org/mental-health...ions-5696.html - As strange as it may seem I find crying really helps me when I get the urge to self harm, as it a way to release emotions. You mentioned drawing Butterflies, is drawing something that you find helps you?

    There's been an awful lot out recently on adult coloring books, or Mindfulness coloring books. I got mine from The Works for £6 and I've absolutely fallen in love with it, but can only really engage with it when I'm actually at the turning point of feeling low. I guess it's about trying a variety of things, and seeing what distractions work for you, as everyone's different when it comes to coping.

    I can really sympathize with not knowing who to turn to when you're struggling, but there are people out there, people who want to listen. I was never one to call helplines in the past, but found talking to Samaritans really helpful, normal call rates apply, but you can ask them to call you back if you give them your number, or text them too. You can call them on - 08457 90 90 90 (UK). - But if you wanted someone Face 2 Face, you could always pop into there local branches, there website should have maps to locate branches closest to you.

    There is also Papyrus you can contact, who offer free confidential advice, you can contact them on 0800 068 41 41, or text them on 07786 209697.
    HOPELineUK is a specialist telephone service staffed by trained professionals who give non-judgemental support, practical advice and information to;
    Children, teenagers and young people up to the age of 35 who are worried about how they are feeling
    Anyone who is concerned about a young person

    It really helps just having someone to listen to you when you do feel alone, it did wonders for me while I was at Uni. Would you be able to talk a bit more about what's going on for you though? Was there something that triggered the feeling? Do keep us updated on how you're getting on though. Have you ever previously had help with your depression? Or thoughts and feelings related to depression?

    Were here for you, massive prompts on being able to post a thread, I look forward to seeing you around more :heart:

    Look after yourself,
    Best wishes,
