    Hi my name is Davy im 26 its really hard for me to talk about ive been mentally ill for about 4 years and about a year ago i was medically cleared to find work again but its proving difficult . and 2 weeks ago i was released from my care worker due to me being ready to be left on my own.

    I'm really struggling to keep it together im not one that asks for help the fact is im afraid to ask for help feels like every things caving in on me i have self harmed in the past and have done recently i would talk to my mom but shes got a lot on recently and the only advice my doctor had was TRY NOT TO DO ANYTHING STUPID

    im so sorry for dribbling on its taken me 3 hours to write that thank you

    HI Davy .. welcome to SF.. when you said released from care worker does that leave you now without mental health care altogether now??? that sounds wrong to just dump you now if htat is the case.. maybe a local mental health center might take you in with almost no charge to you..

    crisis line number for the USA is 1-800-273-TALK.. calling that will get your call routed to a local crisis line near to you.. if not in usa the listing of many countries criisis lines is here also on SF.. maybe in the welcome forum.. sorry i do not know the exact location on here now.. i will look in just a moment so i know where on here they are.. crisis lines provide help professionalloy.. they know about agencies that might be able to help you..

    Davy this was your first post on here.. it is safe to talk to us.. lot of people here that have gone thru this stuff also.. all we want to do is try to help you.. jim

    Davy, by coming here you have already made the first two HUGE steps!! You recognized a problem and you HAVE asked for help!!! Feel very very very proud of that!!
    Please talk to me. Does this site have private messaging? If not, I have AIM. Be my friend. Talk to me. Tell me what is going on. There is no problem that requires a permanent, irreversible decision. It sounds like you love your mother a lot. That is a wonderful thing. No matter what is going on with her, reach out if you need to. I'm sure she'd much rather hear your problems than lose you.
    No one is alone in the world. It's just way too big of a place to be alone.
    Much love to you, Davy. Life can be very difficult, but as far as I know you only get one chance at it. Don't give up. You never know how different your life can be in six months. Why not stick around and see?
