Suicidal

Why do I think suicide is an option. I’m 25 and I have a 5 year old daughter, I’m going through a court case at the moment from when I was assaulted sexually which is really making me anxious.

    If you are having these thoughts please chat to the smaritans on 116 123 (free) if you think you are in immediate danger call 999.
    But please believe from someone who once tried it, it's not the answer, take care.

    Oh good hopefully you won't wait too long, good that you reached out to your gp. Everyone on here are a good support too, no one judges here and there's always someone to talk to.
    With your court case have you got support with that going on, from the system or freinds and family
