    Martin, I really hope you don't mean that last part. Are you feeling suicidal? That's not the answer, this too shall pass. If you really have done that please call 999 right away :(

    I've just seen your previous thread about depression. Please call 999, and also a family member or friend that you trust. I did this once, took 100 units to try and kill myself, but there are other ways to make it better.

    I bet you are much less insulin resistance than me!

    Have you called someone? Even if you won't call an ambulance, you need to call a friend or relative. Please!

    Martin, you seem to have gone offline but if you want to call someone non-judgemental who won't beg you to call an ambulance, just to chat, the Samaritans are there:
    08457 90 90 90
    jo@samaritans.org

    I hope you're okay

    Martin - you need help - as PepperTed advises, the Samaritans are a first line to talk through your depression. Prayer to Jesus will help - he hears what you pray in silence.
    Have you family & friends you can turn to?

    Martin, please take one of these suggestions.
    An outsider like Samaritans can be easier than someone closer.
    We're thinking of you in our own individual ways sending positive thoughts for you.
    With love,
    Jane.

    Martin, you need to seek urgent medical attention for your problems, please don't feel that you need to suffer in silence with your depression, if you have taken the 60 units and you feel unwell then I suggest you dial 999 straight away.

    It depends in what state of mind he is in as to whether he will let us know. I did pm him last night, but no response. If he has other problematic medical conditions and could be having 'black dog days' it is so worrying :(
    Martin If you read any of the posts on here, please try to get in touch.
    All the best RRB

    Sadly, there's not much we can do with IP addresses, and whoever we pass it to (i.e police) will not be equipped to turn the IP address into anything meaningful. We can sometimes get a vague locations based on IPs, but they're not always accurate - for example, if I trace my own IP the location is completely wrong.
