Post of The Month (July)

Aidan is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Lucie,

You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate...

    Hugs to everyone!

    You're all doing so brilliant guys, dont give in

    SUCCESS is not final, FAILURE is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts


    • I've been in the worst mood from the moment I woke up I've smashed my phone into pieces. I could smash my face into glass right now. I've been a vile person to be around today. I've been snappy and angry and emotional and binging relentlessly. I feel tired and I don't know whether to leave the house now. I don't care what happens to me I need to self harm but not whilst they are here.I had to leave before because I would have just gone mad and hit my head repeatedly against the wall or trash my room.I tried calling TRC but they don't do over the phone so I'm sat here eating yet again. I can't concentrate nothing is going in. I just have to admit that I'm gaining when I don't want to and I'm a failure for it. I want to crawl out my skin and pull out my hair. if I give in, i know I'll be in trouble when M returns. I wan't punch holes in the wall and pull my hair out I'm so upset.Everything is so over whelming.

      • why is everything so fucking shit.


        • ----trigger warning----
          I hate myself and i hate my life. I've failed my college corse and i will fail at life. I am getting no where and nothing is going to ever make me happy. I dont want to live. I dont feel like i have any meaning or purpose and feel very disconnected from the world. I have no friends and feel isolated. and i cant ignore these thoughts telling me :
          Youre not good enough
          You're not thin enough
          Take laxatives
          Make yourself throw up
          Everyone hates you
          No one cares
          You're fat
          Harm you're self
          Don't deserve to eat
          You're disgusting
          You're a failure
          You're a fuck up
          Take drugs
          You will be happy if you weighed less

          I cant stop these thoughts although they are my brain saying it, I dont feel like it what i am thinking even though it's in my head and i am controlling it. I just want it to stop. Because half of it I know doesn't make sense.but i can't help think it.

          I'm so done with just trying to get through a day without killing myself and finding a way to cope wuth these thoughts. It's not a life or what i want. I want a life. I cant take it anymore. I am exhausted

                          • Hey Shaunie. I'm really sorry to hear how you're feeling. Things sound so tough right now, we hope you're ok. We've just edited out some of your post to keep things safe on the boards. You mentioned that you feel fed up with life, do you want to tell us a bit more about what's going on?

                            If you ever feel things are getting overwhelming or you feel you might act on these suicidal thoughts you're experiencing, there's some great organisations set up for crisis support that you can reach out to. I've listed a few below.

                            Samaritans - offer a safe place for you to talk anytime you like about anything you're going through. You can call them on 116 123 or email them on

                            Do you feel you can reach to one of these places if you need to?

                            All the best,

                            - Aife

                              went to get something removed and stitches from the nurse, and she said ' since its self inflicted again, I won't give you any lidocaine' and I dunno it just hurts, why is mental health treated so differently? Was almost in tears with the pain, I can handle physical pain, but not when it's caused by others. It doesn't makes sense but yeahh... Has anyone else had the same said to them?
                              mosaics are made from broken pieces but they’re still works of art, and so are you.

                              It's stormy now, but the suns gonna shine again, even the worst storms gotta end.
