Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
I crossed the line of obsession with an ex girlfriend that ended our 2 year relationship in February. She's a very smart person that has givin me endless chances to take the correct steps. I very seriously over stepped my boundaries yesterday and I feel like a possible danger to myself. I've been drinking or taking sleeping pills so I can lesson the anxiety ad try to sleep. I need to consider counseling and medication. Would really appreciate some help today . Jake *******
Hi my name is ***** ***** I hope I can help. I'm sorry to hear you're going through this. Since you believe you are a danger to yourself, I strongly suggest you go to the emergency room in order to keep yourself and your ex-partner safe. At the emergency room they will be able to assist you with your needs. I would also strongly suggest you discontinue mixing the sleeping pills and alcohol, as this combination may be lethal. Is there someone that can either take you to the emergency room or meet you there?
Okay, so are you saying you are no longer having thoughts of wanting to hurt yourself?
That's an excellent idea! Keeping yourself active and social will really help. I'm sorry to hear about how you're feeling. It is with hope that with time these feelings will lessen. Have you thought about going to one-on-one therapy? It will be difficult not seeing her every day, yet, I also think this will help with the healing process. Give yourself time to grieve the relationship, many people don't allow themselves that time to be sad and upset, as they don't like the feeling. But this is similar to a death, it's an ending of a relationship with someone you were very close with and shared 2 years together.
