    How do you ask for help to stop you doing something if you can't ask for help. This is impossible

    Why can't you ask for help?

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    Would it be possible for you to write it down and hand it to the relevant people so you don't have to say it out loud?

    Hi and welcome. you can ask for help, you've just done so :) I know sometimes its hard to regulate your emotions and thoughts into words but start slowly and build it up :) Best of luck to you :)

    How, gp has no interest. I tried years ago and was dismissed. I can't open my mouth and say anything that I'm thinking.

    Thank you for taking time to reply

    And give it to who? Every online support leads back to GP because I'm suicidal but I can't approach GP. There's no where to turn to

    What about going to another GP or going to the hospital?

    Sounds like you need to change your doctor, get a second opinion at the very least and see if that changes anything. You CAN get help.

    I went before and they just want to either give you tablets and put you on waiting list to see a therapist. I had 8 cbt sessions and stopped taking tablets myself and never heard a thing ever again.

    I struggle to go to the shop or to work i can not get help. Saying I can get help is like saying just be happy. It is that far fetched.

    Now that! I can understand as I was house bound for 5 years. The longer you leave it the worse it gets, trust me on that. I only want the best for you, seeking help would be a success not a failure, your current doctor sounds like a right asswipe to be honest, maybe he's one of those old doctors that don't have much faith in mental illness. Either way you can get help elsewhere.

    Is there the possibility of seeing another doctor? Or maybe a psychiatrist?
