I do not think you need locking up and if you do maybe we all do :-/

But we don't we need understanding & help and as much as it can be hard for your family to cope with you been this way it is even harder for us that are suffering & if you were suffering from any other illness would you be giving yourself such a bad time I don't think you would and this is just the same as anything else we may be unfortunate to suffer from

Have you been back & spoken to your Doctor about how bad you are still feeling , if not I would that is what they are there for , it maybe your medication needs adjusting but it is certainly worth letting them no

Have you been referred for any counselling ? again if not this is something I would ask if I could be referred for

Remember if you are in the UK we have the Samaritans you can phone 24/7 call free on 116 123 they will always listen use if if you feel you need that support again that is what it is there for

You are not alone , everyone on here understands how you are feeling so you can always come & talk here when you feel the need to vent , we may not always have an answer but you know someone is listening , cares & understands :-)

Take Care x
