    Hello @emmaelizabeth123 Pleased to meet you .

    Thank you for your post. Why not?  To give you reassurance you have done first nothing wrong.

    Second what is important is you how you cope and deal with your disability.  I do understand the problems .

    Who decides and has concern over what ever your doing it is none of their business.

    I am happy to share what is important also may I add is your own self. How we can help and be a friend.

    That we can give and offer any advice, guidance when you need it.

    What is necessary is that we continue to support you. Please if you need to ask anything.

    Enjoy your dog walking.

    Pleasure to meet you.

    Take care.

    Hi @chris77. I'm really sorry to hear how you're feeling. Have you spoken to anyone about your feelings at all?
    I hope you realise that we're always here if you need a chat, but if you're dealing with suicidal thoughts, you should really speak to someone qualified to help you, such as Samaritans as @thespiceman has suggested. If you're not comfortable talking by phone (116 123) you can always email them on [email protected]

    If you ever feel like you might be in any immediate danger, please give 999 a call or go to your local hospital.
    In the meantime, we're here for you and will try to support you as best we can.
