    "the only treatment is breathing exercises" or so the fucking nhs tell me

    @IainJammyboy come on its not that hard to breathe. Breathing cures you of all health problems, make you the happiest person ever, and even keeps all the demons away! I'm kidding obviously, these exercises dont help me at all, personally. All they end up doing is stressing me out even more. So I know the pain. When someone starts to tell me to do breathing exercises I just want to scream "I KNOW THAT ALREADY" lol

    If the teachers can go on strike, so can I. I refuse to be treated the way I`m being treated in my Health and Social Care class. It`s not just my classmates. It`s the teacher.

    One of my teachers seems to just say "Stay in the moment." Unfortunately, mental health isn`t always understood and people don`t get how to help.

    OOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHH - I'm actually pretty sure it's adhd, makes sense especially around all these suicide attempts and that stuff. Although NHS is gonna discharge me because I'm refusing antidepressants and online group "therapy" which is just a zoom call of a bunch of people watching some stupid YouTube video by the nhs

    @JJLemon18 at least it keeps us alive lmao
  • JJLemon18JJLemon18 Community Champion Posts: 1,876 Extreme Poster
    @IainJammyboy fair point. Its the least it can do. I'm actually tempted to say this the next time someone asks me if I've been doing breathing excercises "yes ma'am I have tried breathing. Its pretty good actually, kept me alive so far. Would recommend" but I know I ain't brave enough lol

    Why is it so hard just to live? I opened up to my school about it and she made me promise I wouldn't research ways to end my life and that I wouldn't hurt myself in that way and then councelling today she made me promise I wouldn't kill myself. If anything it's making it harder to stay but then there's the guilt and worry of what if I do break the promises. Things are so hard
    .
    I'm safe

    Hey @Chloe234 - thank you for opening up to us here. I can really hear how much you're going through with these thoughts <3 We're really proud of you for opening up to your school about it as I know that was something you were nervous to do. This can't have been an easy conversation to share these scary thoughts you've been having.

    You mention that if anything, opening up and hearing their responses is making things harder. We're here if you'd like to share more about those feelings.

    How are you finding the support from your school and counselling? Are you receiving any support outside of that?

    Some helplines and webchat options you might find helpful trying are Childline, Kooth, Crisis Messenger, Papyrus or our helpline service at The Mix. You can also call your local NHS urgent mental health helpline too <3

    You're doing really well Chloe, we're all here for you :)

    Hey @River, I noticed you mentioned you injured your ankle yesterday and can't put pressure on your foot, is that where the pain is coming from? Sounds like a sore one! Remember to get it check out if you're worried about it <3.

    I'm also hearing that things have been difficult for you lately too. Would you like to share more about those flashbacks you're experiencing? Remember you can create a dedicated thread to exploring some of that if it would be helpful. We're all here for you and really care about you.

    Can you also let us know if you're feeling safe at the moment? <3

    You've got this :)
