Me and my now ex partner were together for 9 and half yrs till july 15th this yr.. I made an attempt on my life the day before he broke up with me...his behavour since is domestic emotional abuse...something I dnt see due to childhood abuse...i have since then made 6 attempts and self harmed regularly...I'm am now high risk and waiting for IDT (mental health team) to get back to me to see what they can offer me...I'm so in my own head and feeling so low that I have nothing left to lose anymore...so what's the point anymore...i cant deal with past and present at same time together...its all to much for me...I'm done fighting any more...

    @Katgreywitch welcome to scope and i'm sorry to hear things aren't good for you I can only echo @Teddybear12 suggestion re:the samaritans. Hopefully in the not too distant future you will get the help you need.

    Good morning @Katgreywitch,
    You've touched on quite a few things here and usually as part of our safeguarding policy, we would follow up on this both on the community and via email. Can I check with you if it's safe for me to email you?

    It sounds like you're struggling a huge amount with your mental health at the moment and I appreciate you reaching out and posting on the online community. If you are having thoughts of suicide, it is important that you discuss them with someone who is qualified to help. Please call the Samaritans on 116 123 (free) or email them at [email protected] You might also benefit from reading MIND’s information on how you can help yourself.
     
    You mention you're waiting on IDT to make contact with you, but if you would like Scope to try and find you some local support, we'd be happy to make a social care referral on your behalf. All we'd need at this stage is your full name, date of birth, and address. Please let us know if this is something you'd like us to do.
      
    Of course, if you feel that you may be an immediate danger to yourself, please call 999 or go to your local hospital right away.

    Hello @Katgreywitch

    Other than the wonderful advice already provided by @Teddybear12, @woodbine and @Adrian_Scope, I want to add that the other reason we have provided you with advice is that we care about you as a person. I hope you receive the support you need soon and are able to enter a happier, warmer and safer place. One of my favourite quotes which I think you might enjoy is "the sunshine is always there, it is just hidden behind the clouds sometimes". Keep pushing forwards even if it is just one foot in front of the other. This can be one minute, hour or day at a time - however much you can manage  :)

    I'm a childhood abuse Survivor ( sexual emotional mental and physical) so recently my partner broke up with me me literally the day after I made an attempt and has become a domestic emotional abuser he is being very difficult and is very in my head I have have  CPTSD I have EUBPD i also have nead and i have anxiety I am also so a self Harmer with Suicidal Tendencies since the Break-Up I have made 5 attempts on my life and have cut myself several times I'm done battling my mental health I'm having to go to housing association to help me move out I am now waiting for the IDT to get back to me for assessment for me to have help I'm afraid it may be too late I am struggling really badly I don't want to live anymore and it is getting to a point where I'm going to make another another attempt at some point somewhere down the line I'm worried it might be sooner rather than later I cant keep doing this any more.
