    After 8 months of pain, physical and mental, I have decided after surviving yet another attempt that I need help. So in the final hours before I go to the hosiptal and in the final hours before my family knows, I would like to say thank you forum, you have saved my life many times in the few days since I joined, and now I am finally listening to what my head has been telling me since I first tried to killed myself, and to what many members of this forum have been saying. I have suffered enough pain today to shock me into action.

    Good luck, hope you get the help you deserve. All I can tell you to expect is lots of waiting. Lots of paperwork, waiting to be evaluated, being admitted, etc. But they WILL take you seriously, especially since you recently tried. Unlike some family who may declare you don't need help. When my daughter was in, the rules were very strict and things like shoes and laces were taken away. You had to earn the priveledge to get any of your stuff. And they had structured time for everything. But this was for teenagers so maybe not true. You also get to talk with a psychologist, psychiatrist and doctor - people who will truly want to help. Please go and let us know how it went.

    Im back well sort of I wont be posting much, but in the mornings on the weekends I have a few hours before my parents wake up. I would like to say sorry to everyone I triggered, insulted, or otherwise offended. The hospital hasnt changed me completly, but now I am determined to control my well, lets face it my addiction to self harm. I am on anti depressants, which helps me with sucidal thoughts.
    Mods I am sorry for causing trouble.
