I can't go into details but I am in suicidal crisis and I do not feel the Mental Health Services are helpful to me at the moment. A very good friend of mine also died this year and with other very difficult stress factors my mood is extremely low and difficult to manage. I really feel at this point my life has no future and has no meaning other than suffering all of which I don't think I can face any more. The past is always a reminder and the present of how hard things are and I don't know how to overcome this and turn any sort of corner to face things further.

Losing someone is a powerful negative trigger I am still in pain after the loss of KS.

But I take positives from her success, love and life. Want would she say/do.

I know you communicated with KS too maybe the above strategy will help you too.

Can you speak to samaritans? They can keep you busy while you're feeling the worst of it hopefully. You need to find something to keep you occupied on a small goal, even if it's just explaining how you feel, or talking about the times you liked with the person you lost or something. Anything. I find thinking about the future and past can make it worse so I have to shut that out by thinking about other things. Sometimes you're so down you can't DO otherthings so simply have to think of them. I know its hard the mind revolves around negative things when we're in that place but keep trying.

I can't say much more than this, when I feel ready to die I listen to my heart beat because it works hard every second of the day, and will for the rest of my life. It can't have a rest, it doesn't have a choice, just like us, or at least that's how it often feels right? So as I see it, we're in this together. If my heart hasn't given up I feel like I have to keep going for that awesome little muscle.

It might sound odd but it works for me, and perhaps it'll work for you?

Please keep us posted. x
