@j95 sorry I didn't realise it was raining - it's not where I am right now. I can hear you're really agitated and upset right now. You're going through a very difficult time tonight. Can you keep trying breathing exercises to bring yourself back to the here and now? Keep focusing on breathing to get yourself grounded and try not to think about the house flooding or anything else. Right now getting yourself centered is the most important thing. You have other strategies that you can try as well (from your safety plan). Can you get a cuddle with your dogs? Also, do you want to try SCBS chat?

I'm trying to focus on something like what @letitgo said but I'm finding it hardi think you are right I think I need to try SCBS chat I tried the beyondblue one they were not helpful

I agree @j95, terrible weather, especially today. I had to get my winter clothes out! There's no way of knowing exactly how long it would take for SCBS chat but hopefully you will get through. You can log on and meanwhile try other strategies. There's certainly no harm in giving it a shot. It might be a bit of wait (again, I don't know for sure how long) but if you hang in there, you should be able to talk to someone.
