Recovery - MIGHT TRIGGER (sh, sui)
« on: November 15, 2018, 11:04:26 PM »
Its been a while since I've visited this site. All is well.

For those of you who find the struggle is real - it is you to whom I address this post.


I have battled with my demons for many years which resulted in numerous self-harm incidents, complete despondency and not wanting to live, so much so, that I overdosed a lot. Many trips to A&E and far too many inpatient stays.

My last admission was 2013 and I haven't self-harmed for 3 years.

I was discharged from CMHT 2 years ago.

I believe the turn around came with eventually getting the right combination of anti-depressant medication.

I still have low days but not to the point of wanting to end it all.

I still haven't got a handle on my anxiety though and still experience broken sleep even with medication for it.



The point of this post is things did change for me and I felt I should share as I'm living proof that some people do recover to some extent.

I didn't think I ever would break the cycle so there is hope.

I am a survivor and one day you may be too

Hi, I think I remember you from some time ago.

This post, made me smile and feel so warm inside. Thank you for sharing this. It's nice to see that people do come through the other side of the doom and gloom.
I'm currently not a believer right now as things are at the worst they have ever been. I dreamed that I could write something like this for many years.

This, is awesome! I hope for a long, happy and healthy life for you with all the positivity I have left in me!
Thank you again, for sharing.

Thanks for your replies and I'm pleased my post wasn't read as being a "bragging" post.

I like that you are happy that I'm doing well.
