@j95 the negative self talk is going to make you feel worse. I do know you, and i promise you are not useless or pathetic or anything bad. You need to be telling yourself true things like- you're awesome, kind and intelligent. And you help so many people out, you have come so far, and do so much. You're a valued person

It's Lina here @j95 It's ok if you don't feel that way, it's normal sometimes, these feelings come and go. I'm sure you were feeling great about yourself during footy today hey?
What is something you can focus on tonight?

I know @j95 and remember, it's ok. It hurts and feels uncomfortable but we can make room for those feelings instead of fighting them. It's just easier to sit with it sometimes. Are there any movies on TV tonight you could watch?

@j95 yes, if you want. Although to be honest, there's no rush with this.
First question, you talked about feeling like the (totally understandable) anger and hurt with other people who hurt you is a bit tangled. How will you untangle it? Have you done enough work on the anger stuff yet? Because you can take your time with eHeadspace if you want to- and i kinda think you should if you can.
Next question, what kind of support have you had with the complaint so far? Would it help if there was someone who could help you communicate?
Question 3! What can you do if the anger comes back? How will you keep yourself and others safe?
Question 4. Have you tried contributing to fixing this problem in different ways, like talking with a consumer coalition? Cause there's a systemic component to the issue, i.e it's not just about people, it's about a very strained mental health system that causes people to be under a lot of pressure and therefore make mistakes that hurt people
Question 5. What happens if you just don't get what you want out of this? How can you lay it to rest?
