Its so hard to ignore those plans when they are screaming at you @Zoe7. So so high at the moment. Taking all my strength not to...
A Toby story would be great

So yesterday I got the potting mix out of the car and of course Toby wanted to help. He was following me from the car to the backyard with each bag I carried - no dramas - he did what he does bestand was my little shadow. I was about halfway through - all going well and then I looked around and he wasn't at my side. The little bugger had spotted a pedestrian down the road ...about 30 metres away and had run after them. That would have been ok but we know he doesn't like to come when I call him. All I could do was wait until the woman got closer and she basically delivered him back to the front gate for me. After that I had to close the gate and open it with every bag I was carrying in. He was in my bad books again but it didnt last long ....we both know how 'soft' I am when it comes to Toby lol

one day when we were walking down town , the kids said " tara is following us" , when I turned around there was no Tara
so we kept walking until we went into the bakery and when we came out == There was Tara sitting there looking at us
The bakery lady thought it was funny so she gave Tara a bread roll , and Tara carried it all the way back home
the kids thought it was soooo funnnyyyn xx

Thanks @Sans911, i wish for both of us, that we get through this somehow. Ive tried so many things to lower my SI, nothing seems to help anymore. I hate being like this.

I'm sorry to hear how difficult things are tonight. It's so hard when it feels like none of the usual strategies are working. I know that you've been through these thoughts before and that tells me you have the strength and resourcefulness to get through tonight as well. Please keep using the forums as a distraction and support; and remember there is always one-on-one support if you need it:
Lifeline: 13 11 14 or Crisis Chat
Suicide call back service: 1300 659 467 or online counselling
Samaritans: 135 247
I also would love an Izzy story, although I know my mind goes blank when I'm asked for a story, so no pressure! I'm trying to think of a pet story too...
