I took an overdose in order to end my life. This must have been my 50th attempt at suicide. This is because I have given up hope and been shoved out by the system because I have 'complex' issues. Because 'talking' about these issues triggers me into self harm mode, I can't risk further appointments because I am only given 50 minutes once a week. I live alone. So what do I 'do' with these emotions and thoughts of suicide when I get home? I have tried over and over to explain this to them, but I feel, they just blame me for missing what is given. After the last overdose I was put on a section 2, and moved to a psychiatric ward. I wasn't formally admitted. The room hadn't been cleaned since the last patient, and 2 days later, they rescinded the section against my opinion, and sent me home alone. And that's been it! It won't be an overdose next time, I feel like it will be the railway track!
