Suicide Ideation/Self Harm / Re: Nothing has helped

Hi Eyessoblue,

I'm really sorry to hear that you're feeling this way. I can completely relate, having felt that despair before too. I'm here for a chat if you need me, happy to be pmed. Also in the UK and I know it can be tough accessing therapists here.

Best of luck to you..

Recovery Journals / LBB's Recovery Journal
« on: July 18, 2019, 07:14:17 AM »
Keeping a recovery journal seems to work well for others here, so I will give it a shot. I've just started over with a new job and new home, developed some new strong friendships and have a new set of attitudes. I've got to try very hard to keep my head above water and prepare myself for when the going will get tougher. So I'm working on building a strong foundation for those times. I'm thinking of this building as fortifying myself.

So my focus should be to:

* Keep my job, even if I find it difficult or challenging

* Keep up with friends even on the days I feel worn down. Acknowledge that I'm needed by other people and I shouldn't only be around when it suits me

* Sleep less in the day (power naps are okay but anything longer than 30 mins isn't good)

* Eat well - healthily and how I mean to eat for the rest of my life. Not snacking on unhealthy food or binging because others are or I'm having a low, not skipping meals because I can't be bothered to cook or wash up or don't feel hungry

* Keep up with my yoga practice, and meditate at least 3 minutes every day

* Not over spend when I feel like there's enough in the bank to treat myself/others, but save for a rainy day

* Keep self care a priority and not neglect myself if I feel like I don't deserve that care, or like it won't make a difference if I don't look after myself

That should do for now...

Welcome to OOTS MamaSilv,

I hope you find it useful here. I'm also recently separated from my husband. How are you finding the co-parenting and coping with the changes in your life?

Don't worry, I jabber too  ;)

Hello all. I've been here before and found I needed to take a break as difficult things were going on for me and my mental health was suffering. Feel I can return to the forum now that things have somewhat settled and I'm more stable. Lots of life changes but I'm coping well enough. Good to be back.

 :wave: welcome Waylay.

I think I do this too. Maybe it keeps me ticking, I always seem to seek the good and the bad. It's in my nature. Maybe it's kind of human nature?

Having an Exceptionally Difficult Day / Re: Lonely, tired, struggling

Hi Wobbly,

I just wanted to say hi (this is my first post and I will make a proper introduction post soon) and give my 2 cents. If possible, don't give up! I understand it must be tough facing this challenge, but there are warm and inviting people out there and you will meet them. Could you try to expand your friendships with others at these groups? Or as Kizzie suggested, go to some meetup groups more specifically aimed at forming friends?

Good luck!
