suicidal thoughts and attending job interviews? - December 13th 2017, 02:35 PM

[SIZE="a"]am i well enough to attend job interviews whilst frequently thinking about suicide? i had an interview recently and cried throughout and they had to keep telling me to breathe and even that I am safe. i'm actually a healthcare professional which is a joke as i can barely take care of myself and my head. i have to hide everthing at home but i cry a lot and get pissed off with myself and can't concentrate. i struggled with uni with my mental health which affected my memory which makes interviews even harder. i've upcoming interviews out of county so long drives to get to them and i'm not sure i can handle my thoughts and will think how easy causing a crash will be and hopefully die. i'm currently thinking of getting away and staying alone in a hotel somewhere and thinking i can kill myself there. family don't know how shit i am and think i'm a complete twat to not go to interviews which i also partly agree with. i also don't want to have a complete mental breakdown though and lose my fitness to practice. i wish i could just be killed so my family wouldn't have to go through knowing i don't actually want to live. i don't know how to cope, i feel so trapped.[/size]

Actually the truth is that you probably need to handle and take care of yourself first... and you also need to know that your safety comes first. You have a bright future ahead of you and you need to take care of yourself. But I do think that you will eventually need to start working again. But then again.. why not take a sabbatical or something? You seem like you're really blaming yourself and you think that you're incompetent, which you aren't. You're on this site helping people out.. that alone speaks volumes about who you are.

Maybe you can also tell your family that you're under some huge pressure, but judging by your aversion to telling them I don't think you have that option or it's not something that's acceptable to you.Perhaps you should tell us and probably talk to other people too (like maybe understanding friends and counselors ) so that you can have another outlet to rant. That would probably help .. it'll at least lighten your burden a little.

I know that this is an extremely tough situation.. but you deserve to smile and be happy. Hang in there and don't let darkness take you away from the happiness you deserve.

Much kindness and warmth,

It's called a tunnel because there's ALWAYS a light at the end.

rant to me if there's anything!



As usual... pm me if you are ever having a tough day, and I'll respond immediately.

You guys deserve to be happy no matter what.. okay? You people are a bunch of lovelies ... and no matter what, you people deserve to be happy.
