I am also new here and have depression, anxiety and ptsd.
Sorry to read that you are in a bad headspace. What is happening for you at the
moment? Will be around for a while if you want to offload.
That is indeed a lot to be dealing with all in one go inside
your head @caz50
I’m really sorry to read that you went through all that. It
is difficult when you don’t have family to go to when you need help. Can I ask do you have any friends you can
I can only vouch for the Samaritans service that
@Chloe_scope mentioned, I haven’t used SHOUT myself. There are pros and cons for
each. With Samaritans if you feel able to speak to someone on the phone that is
an immediate source of support, they do offer an email and text service but
these are not so quick and you will engage with a different volunteer each time.
The benefit of SHOUT is that you can have a conversation with the same
volunteer by text, although if they feel you are at immediate risk, they will
alert emergency services.
Have you ever had any 1:1 counselling, is this something you
would be able to consider?
