Losing control is inevitable?


I have a question, or a concern I guess. If I get to the point that I feel I’m losing control and every suicide hotline is busy or I get put on hold, (literally number 71 in line) what do I do then? Things just keep getting worse and I worry because there must be a point that people get to where that’s it, decision is made and there’s no going back. My dad attempted suicide before so maybe it’s just something I won’t be able to escape. Idk


@4everWarped333 I’m sorry you are in a dark season. One of the greatest things you have done is sharing here on the forum. You are taking a step of reaching out. Be proud of yourself. If you have that gut feeling of seeking help, do it! You getting better is for you. No one, but you. Thank you for reading this. Have a restful night. Peace.


Hey there,

I don’t believe that losing control is what is meant for you in this life and just because your dad attempted suicide, doesn’t mean that is what you are destined for. Reaching out here and knowing that there are resources that you can contact shows your strength and courage. You are much stronger than you know. If the resources you are able to use are not available, another place you can get support from this community specifically is the HeartSupport Discord. You can talk with others and get support and talk things out when things feel dark. We love you and are glad you’re here. Keep fighting, we believe in you!

Hold Fast,
Hannah Rhodes
