    I want to cry!

    what's up???? what happened Heather? I totally know what you mean, I feel like that a lot to that when I want to cry I can't or when I feel like I should cry I can't and I won't. and then sometimes though I cry for no reason. I guess in a way it's repressing emotions. for now, if you feel you can't let out your emotions by crying, try to find some other healthy way to do so... ie. go for a walk, call a friend, draw something... but you know, even better, if you're really frustrated let out your emotions- scream (that won't hurt anyone, only maybe wake up a few people!), hit a pillow if you feel like you're really mad.... I think it is possible to learn to properly express emotions (ie. in healthy ways) and to learn to deal w/ them too, but it's a long road... wish I could help you there but I am as lost as you are in that department. hope things will be better.

    Sorry I am a little more clear headed now!

    A friend of mine tried suicide and it is my fault! She is alive and in hospital though.

    And now I have harmed myself again and it is noticeable and I have to go to work and uni :(

    How is it your fault that your friend attempted suicide?

    Hj

    Please dont blame yourself for what your friend has done, eleven years my best friend took her own life, I dont want to go into detail here for any number of reasons, but I spent months after blaming myself for not having done certain things, helping more etc but a psychologist I was seeing at the time for my own problems made me see I wasnt to blame for her actions and whatever I had done to help she would have done it anyway. Maybe you should go and see your friend she proberly needs you, thats what I would do, I hope things get better for you, wish I could help more.

    The reason that it is my fault is because I left my meds at her house, granted it was an accident but I need to be more careful.

    No one was allowed in her room today, but I will visit her tomorrow.

    Thanks for the replies.

    You made a mistake. You're human. We all do that.

    It doesn't make you responsible. At worst, your mistake perhaps made it easier for your friend but if she was determined to do it there are always other means.

    Heather, a similar thing happened to me, ane one might as well blame the sun and the moon before blaming oneself.
