    I was just about to suggest the Samaritans and then I saw Adrian's post! I've used their email option before, it can take a bit for them to respond because they are helping other people but they do always respond.

    In the life of mental health
    Age 16 diagnosed with unstable
    Borderline personality disorder
    Don't know who I am
    All very scary
    Moods are intense
    This horrible illness damaging my mind
    I get scared of people
    I find every day unable to function or lead a Normal life
    No one wants me
    People think am crazy
    People bully me
    To scared in my mind
    Trapped inside I don't feel normal
    Deep down it don't
    I kant deal with changes
    Kant deal with multiple changes in my mind
    People don't respect me
    Every day I fear of the episodes
    That hunt me in my mind
    Kant stick crowds
    I feel unsafe in places I don't know
    Fear of being out alone need that support of someone with me
    Why God give me this horrid illness
    Every day I lived I hated every day of my tortured life
    Why no one love me
    All I want is love
    Not being judged because i have a borderline personality disorder
    It's crippling at is it is without being bullied and neglected
    No one asked to be born to deal with mental health. One day it all end I don't know that day will arrive but someone pls love me not to. Judge my bpd
