    Hi @alaine - I'm sorry to read that you've had a bad few days. You're taking a step in the right direction by reaching out for support, & I'm pleased that MIND are going to help. This all sounds positive & hopeful, so nothing to be angry about.
    We all need help & support at times, but it's realising this that matters. So, good for you!
    Please talk here any time, & let us know how you get on please.

    Hi @alaine
    MIND are a great group, I'm sure they'll offer lovely support. I find New Years such a bizarre time, I'm sorry to hear you're having a bad time. Spring is slowly but surely on the way and many good things with it I'm hoping :)

    Thank you ,  your letter was lovely. I find it gratifying that people do care. My best friend is a four legged darling my Hearing Dog (Rula). She gives me cuddles and hugs, and is by my side.

    Hi again @alaine - Aww thank you for sharing such a lovely photo of Rula. How are you both today?
    I've got my son's Bedlington terrier, Stan, for the day. The trouble is I have a kitten, & he wants to be near her all the time. She's just escaped outside, & Stan is peaceful at the moment keeping my legs warm!

    That's good to hear! My hot water bottle will be going home soon, but my kitten sits on my legs too, she's just not quite as warm.
