Are you okay @redhead?

Re: Short Sads

I'm sorry that the voices were intense and harmful today @redhead. Are you ok? Do you need to see a doc? Please let us know if you need help.

 

 

I gotta say that I'm disappointed in the way some of the crisis services have treated you @j95. I wish they all had lots of funding and heaps of training and could actually support you the way they are supposed to.

Re: Short Sads

maybe I'm doing something wrong @ElleBelle It has to be me. That's what has been making me angry the last few days but then I went to footy training tonight pretty fired up and got myself into a bit of a fight which obviously is a very negative way to express it

Re: Short Sads

It's not you @j95. To some extent, it's not them either. Our mental health system has a bunch of bottlenecks, and what sucks is that the people who suffer most because of it are the people who really the need and support they are being denied.

 

A bit of biffo on the footy field isn't the end of the world. As you know, we don't make the best decisions when we're riled up. Once your head feels a bit clearer, you'll be able to think about what happens next.

Re: Short Sads

I feel like it sort of me makes me feel worse when I contact these places and I get denied, it's a mix of why I contacted in the first place plus the anger of getting knocked back. It really can be more upsetting than the reason I was calling. Lucky I don't need to contact them as much as used to, which is a good thing but when I do its for a pretty big reason. @ElleBelle

Re: Short Sads

My boyfriend is feeling suicidal and due to being long distance/different country I can't even slightly figure out how to help.

Re: Short Sads

Yeah, I completely understand that @j95. Is there one service that's been a bit more helpful than the others than you can stick to from here on out? It's a great sign that you're finding you don't need to turn to them as much.

 

That must be really difficult @Bay52VU Smiley Sad

Can you Skype with him maybe, just so you can see each other's faces? Does he have anyone over there to support him?

Do you need support?
