Full question: Was cut off. You have some serious medical issues. Not knowing the full extent of your question i would recommend speaking with your physician asap. If you are feeling suicidal please go immediately to the er or all the suicide hotline.

There's hope: Your illness may be too hot to handle by messaging. I want to let you know that there is hope for recovery. You know it. Treatment works. Your curiosity and reaching out is a good sign. And you have a lot to say...More than you can say in the space given. Increase the frequency at which you see your therapist during times of intense stress. Preventing the self abuse will allow healing faster.
