hello ,my first post ,

Ive tray ed Samaritans e-mail and it takes them 24 hrs to replay I'm going back and forward to them as i haven't any one else ,wen i mean no one i mean no one at all I'm on my Tod no family Friends no doctor support ,

well i find the Samaritans frustrating as you never speak to just one person and they always push on do you feel like taking your own life ,i do I'm very fed up right now ,I'm to complexed to have support this is Wat I'm told and my doctor is new and don't like me wen i cut myself he don't look at it, as his attitude is ,its a on going thing ,i bean A&E but they don't look either and send me home after a qwik chat to the saico on call ,I'm suffering terribly thees days as a adult theres no one else i can turn to ,i tray ed rethink but you have to be a inpatient so i don't know ho to turn to ,I'm agoraphobic i am a recluse with all my problems .

i prob should not have gone on with my self but my experience i explain thanks .

I am new to this forum, so I am not sure what to do really. I have diagnosed BPD and for 2 weeks + I have had a razor inserted in my vagina with a disposable razor head. i am getting abdominal pains and last night had really bad diarrohia. Does anyone think that i should seek help, or let nature take it course. I am petrified of going in to a & e as they all seem to know me throught the overdoses. i am really stuck as to what to do. I want help to change but I am soooooooo scared
