Know when you need extra help

This was my 3rd stay in a mental hospital the first 2 times were due to suicide attempts which one of them i almost didn't survive it due to severe blood lost. I went on my own this time, i needed to go back for my own sake.... im not the best at giving advices but hear this, yes this site is amazing to speak up say what's on our mind and get advices from people who understand our struggle but try and SEEK help don't just post about your mental health. go online each State have resources to help out, you can even ask for some websites on here or locations where you can go to. There's no magic formula or a quick fix for mental illnesses and want to hear something amazing??? I went to apply for a job at the local library yesterday lol yesssss hunny

Missed you too, was wondering what was going on 💛 I'm try to hang in there... faced a big hurtle last week... got blood work done. And yes, I got chocolate after.🍫 Results look okay & haven't heard from the doctor, so he must be happy with them.

Any good books you can recommend about the problems we experience? Congratulations, just keep taking small steps forward and soon you will be running. Sometimes when I struggle with my self confidence, I look back and see how far I have come, one step at a time! Good luck!

Congratulations on applying for the job. I hope you get it. I remember when I first overcame my agoraphobia and applied for jobs. I wasn’t successful in my venture. I will be praying you get it.

Hi Cali, youve heard of first impressions? He made me feel a little uncomfortable, my anxiety came in to play. A question that I felt deeply about, he asked me to refer to a printout that he gave me? I felt we should have discussed the question? he didn't tell me anything that I hadnt already heard. So I don't know if I want to go back to him?

Good for you...and thanks for sharing. People here need to be made of aware of success stories too. You already succeeded by applying for a job, regardless whether you get it or not. Im sure if you don't, you will seek and find another one.

Oh you probably will be hired!! At our library, there are also opportunities to read to preschool kids. Maybe you can do that too!! I know, I know,you didn't get the job yet but I have a good feeling about it.😉

If you keep moving forward with your life, taking your anxiety with you for the ride and just let yourself think and feel anything without resisting any of it, you will recover. Like you say, it takes time but it will happen. ♥️
