Hi Mia8,

I had PP just over 4 years ago. Would you like to talk with me?

Yes please. I just feel like crying myself to sleep. I have already taken 100mg of promethazine (I always take that much) and I have visited the crisis cafe tonight and they are going to get my cpn to call me in the morning. I want to express my suicidal thoughts without anyone calling the police or anyone.

Hi Mia8,

I'm so sorry, you are feeling like this right now. Going through PP is horrendous at the time. But there is hope, you will get better. All the ladies on this forum are proof of that.

That's great that you've reached out to the crisis cafe. Is there anyone you can stay with/ talk to tonight until you can contact your CPN?

You could always contact the Samaritans on 116 123 to talk to someone as well.

Please try to reach out to some your feel comfortable with and take care of yourself.

Hi Mia8

Sorry you’re feeling like this tonight. Well done going to the crisis cafe, that’s great they’ll get your CPN to contact you in the morning.

Night time can be really tough but you’re not alone. As jossykate says, Samaritans are always there too to listen, no judgement.

You can get through this. Sending you a big hug xx

Hello Mia8

I'm so sorry you're struggling tonight. Are you having the same thoughts that you posted about recently? You have done really well reaching out for help at the cafe and arranging for your CPN to ring in the morning.

Please let the CPN and professionals know how you really feel so that they can help you. I had PP years ago and was reluctant to open up to professionals about my thoughts and feelings. Then as soon as I did, they were able to help me in my recovery. I hope you will be able to have a restful sleep tonight. Take care.

Hello Mia8,

I can so very much relate to you Mia, - I felt so terribly alone until I found APP...even though I am loved and not on my own, it has been such a therapeutic path to be understood in a compassionate way; it was so good to be able to talk on this PPP forum, once I discovered it.

Remember you are not on your own, … it is such a soothing feeling to know somebody is on the other end...when recovering I had one to one support on this forum.

Look after yourself and hope you were able to sleep last night.
