    Hi twiggy666.  Is this the first time you've had feelings like this? It's a difficult time for everybody at the moment. That why is so helpful to discuss your feelings on here - maybe it'll stop you feeling sad.

    Hi bonnielassie if I’m honest I was already terrified about the transplant but now it’s been cancelled and I’m in isolation I’m struggling with my mental well-being if I’m honest. Have been crying a lot xx

    Do you live on your own twiggy666? Is there anybody you can talk to about your feelings?

    I live with my son who’s autistic. My sister in law is really good but it’s so hard being in isolation and I suffer with ptsd so I find it very difficult to FaceTime or talk on the phone XX

    Hi @twiggy666 - This time must be so very difficult for you, & awaiting a transplant, then having it postponed must be awful. I can appreciate that. I'm pleased you've joined us all, as we try to help & support each other, now more than ever. Please do chat here any time, as this lovely community will do its best to support you as you're now a valued member.
    I'll also ask my friend @thespiceman for his advice as he has an extensive knowledge about mental health issues. I hope we can give you the strength to help you get through this.
