I have a mate whom I've known for about 5 years from a writers' group,  He's a DJ on a local community radio station and when he hard about my trauma and relapse he asked if he could do anything to help.  I said I'd appreciate a shout out and a request.  Well was it ever mind-blowing?  He just said I was going through a tough time and deserved better, then he said I was the STRONGEST, SASSIEST, SMARTEST woman he'd met in a long time.  If I were able to cry...    I have such amazing friends  <3

    Thank you, I have the best friends and neighbours and they have become my safety net.  I am trying not to become too dependent on them and I use the Samaritans services after hours.  I cannot recommend them highly enough,  The professionals, including the police have been superb and I'm feeling so much gratitude and for this forum as well  <3

    The best suggestion someone made when I was feeling down about my life was to find something you like doing and do that to help you feel a bit happier and validated.  Sometimes it can be just watching a TV programme that makes you feel more hopeful, that the world is a kinder place than you are experiencing right there and then.
