Hello Serenity, I would definitely call the crisis team if I were you. I know they can be less than useless sometimes but it's important to reach out when you feel like this. Remember you can also call the Samaritans if you need a real person to talk to. I have spoken to them at some very difficult times in my life and they helped me come back from the edge. Just having that listening voice helps bring you back. I hope you can get some support.

Hi GMS,

Yes, call them and tell them you're not doing well. They would want to know.

I'm sorry you're struggling and I hope that you can find some relief with the medications.

Hi Serenity,

Were you able to speak to someone on the crisis team? Were they able to help you come up with a plan?
