Once in awhile I get these thoughts and I just feel lost. I dont know what to just suppress them? Or stop.
I wont harm myself I just want a fix for it. Hope you all understand what I'm saying. Thank you for reading this!

If you’re ever having thoughts about harming yourself, please call the National Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255. I urge you. Regardless of how light or dark they may seem, call that number and just talk to someone.

What works for me is immediately distracting myself with something. A problem that has a solution. Like a crossword puzzle, trivia games, or even watching mysteries. Sometimes I try to solve the crime before the main character does. I know these things may not work for everyone but they do wonders for me. I also watch long documentaries or theme park vlogs on youtube. Sometimes I try to put myself to sleep but also, these things kinda get me to turn my brain off. I love the Biographics channel on youtube. Tons of videos about historic figures and the host has such a nice, calming voice. I think it's his accent. Anyway, try keeping yourself busy. And just know that moments like that always pass. At the end of a dark road, there's always some sunshine. It sucks to have to endure the bad to get to the good but please, know that there is some good coming.
