When your suffering you might think to yourself… who can help me? And a lot of the time you will be telling yourself no one!
But I can say there is help out there, you might not think it and we tend to think it’s a battle we have to fight on our own, but that doesn’t have to be the way and here are some of the sources you can use.
Samaritans are a good organisation to get in touch with when your feeling really low or having feelings of self harm! I would really recommend calling these as they are able to help talk you to a more stable state. The calls are normally completely confidential and you can convide in them 100%. They are open 24/7 so you can contact at anytime any day!
I highly recommend going to see your GP if your having any doubts with yourself and you are feeling low a lot of the time. Most people don’t like to go their GP as they feel as though they are just going to get pushed straight out of the door and I can tell you if it wasn’t for my GP I wouldn’t be able to do what I am doing right now. They are able to chase appointments, put you in contact with organisations and even provide you with support if you need it such as the crisis team! They are able to make sure you have the medication and support you need to make each day more bearable. So please don’t suffer in silence. If you go to see a doctor and they don’t do anything to help just ask to see another doctor.
Family and friends
This is one most people forget about as you feel as though your a burden on them but trust me they are normally the ones who can help the most as they know you! You will find the ones who you can speak to and the ones who aren’t ever going to understand. If you are struggling to get your family to understand try to explain to them what it is like inside your head, they will listen if they do want to help. If your lucky like me I have a lot of friends who have and are going through a very similar situation so they are able to understand exactly what I mean but if not, then you can always source forums or even just sending an email to someone who has knows such as a blog writer or a organisation.
These are just a few of the sources out there that can help you. At the top of my page you will see ‘Support Contacts’ please click as there is more information on third party people you can speak to and know you will not be judged.
