i dont know.. - August 31st 2010, 04:28 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

so i've been battling depression for almost three years now. i've come a bit of a way, but i'm still no where near where i need/want to be. i've been hospitalized three times so far for suicidal thoughts and self harming behavior. i am in my second psychiatric program. recently i have been struggling with urges and thoughts. i have been put on a safety contract. i need to talk to my parents or therapist if i have suicidal thoughts or i want or actually do cut or self harm in any manner. i've talked to my parents, talked to my therapist. and it just was no help. if i were to break this contract, PESS is called, im evalutated and most likely readmitted to the hospital. and the hospital told me i did not belong there, and blah blah.. im being ping ponged back and forth between people and programs and places.. and i just i dont know anymore.. this was mostly a rant.. im sorry

Hey Jenna,

At least you're getting somewhere. As you admitted, you've made some progress. And well, though things may not be perfect right now, they will get better. They have already, right?

If you get an urge to self-harm, perhaps use the Alternatives Thread to curb the urges with a more healthy activity. And remember, you can do this! You've come along already, and though the journey may have bumps in the road, you'll reach your destination someday.

I'm sure everyone feels hopeless from time to time. But maybe keep yourself motivated, remembering that you've had progress already, and you'll most likely keep going uphill from here.

Do you have any hobbies? Perhaps having a hobby, particularly one that has an end product (painting, drawing, crafting, sewing, etc.) could give you a sense of accomplishment when you feel like you have nothing left, if you get what I mean.

Poetry, even when depressing, is still something. And perhaps next time you feel down, take your camera out, put your music on, stroll and take some photos..?

I can relate to you Jenna.
Just focus on the positives although that may be a bit hard. I know it does get hard for me. You have so much potential in life, and your a great person. Your always a really good writer! I know im not all that good at advice but PM me anytime okay?

Hey,

Maybe if you told them it just isnt working, then they could find a programme which best suits your needs? If you find that it isnt helping then surely there is something else that can be done to help. If you feel that no one is listening, maybe let them know that? There should be something else to help.

You seem like a really nice person who deserves the help. If you're struggling with urges, tell somebody

PM or VM me anytime,

Lex
