Re: Not doing well at all!! Help!

Bummer Smiley Sad That's good that the book helps a bit though, is it the reading and thinking about what will happen next that distracts from the worrying thoughts?

 

Once I tried reading this maths book because I couldn't get to sleep and it was so boring I fell asleep

 

Also @Bellababe, I'm not sure if you can see this too but it looks like the 'Reply' button isn't working on your thread on 'Too much treatment?' We've noticed this bug and will be working on trying to fix it Smiley Happy Do you mind making the thread again as this might fix the bug? Thanks Smiley Happy

Hey @Bellababe

I think it's best to see a psychiatrist or a doctor. Maybe you should tell your sister and she can talk to you about it?

Re: Not doing well at all!! Help!

Hey @Bellababe, I'm sorry youre having such a rough time sleeping and dealing with these flashbacks at the moment. From what you've told us, it sounds like you're taking all the right steps in terms of seeking help (which is no small thing, you should be proud of yourself for that Smiley Happy ) so what can we do to help you cope in the meantime?
