    Hi @Cayze, I'm so sorry that things aren't easy at the moment, and especially that you're scared to go to the doctors. You should feel supported and safe when accessing the care you're entitled to.

    If you are having thoughts of suicide, it is important that you discuss them with someone who is qualified to help. Please call the Samaritans on 116 123 (free) or email them at [email protected] You might also benefit from reading MIND’s information on how you can help yourself. If you feel that you may be an immediate danger to yourself, please call 999 or go to your local hospital right away.

    You are a valued member of our community, so please do get involved. Our members will always be around if you want to talk, especially in the Coffee Lounge
