I previously posted on here after not understnd why I was feeling down and alone nd now it's all got worse. My boyfriend of the time that was trying to help so much and recently choosen his where do I go? friends over me when I gave him the ultimatum to go out and get drunk or stay with me that weekend; this ws due to me feeling very low about my self image and my horse breaking her leg after being legally mine for 3 days. I haven't eaten for a good week and have gone longer before only eating enough to stop the stomach cramps, I recently started doing my wrists again and crying my self to sleep running everything over in my head. My orse needs alot of care something I am very capable to give but I'm so tired and working extra hours at work to try and cover the vet bills. I just don't know who to turn to to talk to now I can't unload onto my boyfriend and at no point will I talk to my mum;
