    Last night I burned myself first time in two months. Seems to have been a spark for my mood to nosedive. Next step suicidal ideation? Feel so useless in trying to help suicidal friends. All I can do on a forum is write to the person and then wait and hope. My life is lived alone except for appointments and calling my parents. Feel like I am looking a few feet away from a cliff just a few more steps and I will be at the edge. I am so numb now can not really fight this off. All I want to do is go to bed and forget about everything.

    hey hun, i'm sorry you're feeling so low :hug:
    i know it's hard when there's noone to talk to much, and when you're distanced from friends who you want to help but this forum does have an impact on people - we're not just computers, we're people who care - it's just a different medium, like a phone. is there noone you can talk to in person to make you feel better. maybe a friend?
    keep talking to us, and know you are helping people on here even if it doesn't feel like it.
    stay safe hun :hug:

    I know it's frustrating ... sometimes it really does seem like all we can do is talk to people, then just wait and hope. But it really can have an impact. We really can help people here.

    I'm sorry you're having such a tough time. I hope you'll talk to us about what's going on.

    "Waiting and hoping" sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. So try to be as pro-active as you possibly can be, both here in the forum and also in the real world.
