The New Crisis Thread

Postby CrackedGirl » Mon Mar 19, 2012 10:26 pm

We have decided to start a new crisis thread with some ground rules included in it. This is to try to make sure people get the most out of this thread possible - especially as they are vulnerable and unwell if needing to post in it.

-No advocating suicide or self harm

-No detailed specifics about what you want to do - "I want to cut" or "I want to burn" etc is appropriate

-The usual consideration to triggers applies

-Please provide a description of your current situation in relation to the crisis so we know what is going on

-New members please make an individual thread detailing their life situation before use of this thread again so we know what is going on and can help better

We hope this makes the crisis thread a more supportive and helpful place for everyone as we know how horrible it is to be in a place where you have to use it.

Thanks

Give this one time hon and you will adjust to it. We need this one up so ppl are aware of the ground rules. It is the same thing but just in a new thread.

Hugs

Mystic - It's the same thing, just starting fresh. We're hoping that the new rules (only a couple!) will make this thread a bit more organized & more helpful to everyone. A few pages in & I swear it'll feel fine.

Im sorry if i was out of line in my other postings. But i felt like i wasnt alone. In real life i feel very alone. I know that my thinking is not good. And i dont sound real safe. I talked to my counselor at my day program. She said that she didnt know what to do wh ith me. I know that tomorrow i see my therapist and he will admit me. If i get through the night without calling him. But im scared as to where they will put my kids. But im sorry to bother you all. I need some major help with my major depression and my bpd.

Things haven't been great with my boyfriend for the last year or so.
Tonight, for the first time, the word "breakup" was mentioned.
We didn't decide anything though, but I think it's just a question of time.

chris hon - you werent out of line we just want to have some rules down to try to help everyone who uses the thread - you included. I am really sorry you are struggling and I know your home situation makes things complicated but I think that the time has come to ask for help and let others take over for now and get things sorted for you.

Venus I am so sorry to hear that. Please keep safe and be kind to yourself during this difficult time.

Huge hugs to you both and to everyone

Keep safe

This will sound really stupid but what do you class as a crisis??

As in right now i have a huge huge urge to cut and i probably will before my mum gets home from work but i am not sure i would say i was in crisis

Hugs honey - the reasons for using the thread are just like before, it is the same thing just with the groundrules. So post whenever you want to hon.

We dont want to make this some sort of draconian society - just try to make things more helpful for people.

Please try very hard not to cut and please also keep safe

Hugs

I think it is a good idea but this is something i have always wondered as what constitutes as a crisis i have never been clear on it so just wondered what other peoples opinions of a crisis is.
