    I'm quite a new member, but in a nut shell:
    -I'm a qualified teacher
    -I was abused as a child at the age of 6-8.
    -I was abused as an adult by my ex; sexually, verbally, emotionally and physically.
    -I've self harmed for 5 years, been free for 4 months, except one small cut.

    Life is still giving me a beating, and I don't know how much more I can take.

    I almost look up to a friend, who committed suicide last year. How wrong is that?!!

    I just don't know what to do anymore, I'm on meds, and have had 4 lots of counselling. Never hospitalised. I just want everything to go away.

    sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time

    how is life still giving you a beating?

    is it mostly that you are dealing with the after-effects of abuse, or is it that you have other sources of stress that are adding to your problems?

    learning a meditation practice might be good for you.

    getting exercise and eating well can help

    are you teaching now?

    I wonder if you could get disability benefits and maybe just teach a few hours a week

    I hope that things can get better for you!

    Money is very, very hard at the mo. My partner has a health condition, which is meaning that he is struggling to stay at work= less money. I'm not teaching at the mo, I'm a nursery nurse at present, so money is naff.

    The abuse won't leave me alone. I can't seem to escape it.

    Funnily enough, I have a meditation book, but I haven't read it. So I shall have a look this afternoon. I need to get exercise, but I'm finding it hard to get motivated. Thankyou for your advice, I really appreciate it :)

    I have thought about checking myself in, but if I do, then I won't get paid at work, and I'll lose my flat. I don't feel safe at the mo, and I'm not caring for myself. I know you're right, as soon as I can, I will check myself in. Thankyou :)
