Re: am i complaining too much? should i toughen up or just get over it?

hi @safari93 @DirtWitch

 

yeah i know about the carers website but i really dont like ringing numbers. it makes me nervous.

Hi @scared01,

 

If you don't like ringing numbers, could you maybe email or text them?

 

Also, I'm glad you were able to change switch therapists. I hope that all goes well with the new one and you are able to feel comfortable with them!

@scared01 glad to hear your new therapist is working out! It's good to find someone who is better suited to your needs.

 

Have you been able to email the support service? Let us know how it all goes Smiley Happy

@scared01 Emailing them sounds like a good idea! Hopefully they will reply quickly!

well done for messaging them @scared01! Do you think calling one of them by phone is something you could build up to? We'd all support you on here and we'd be happy to talk through some of the things that worry you about making the phone call/s. Smiley Happy

So the main issue with calling helplines is what to talk about, is that right @scared01? Do you think you could try writing about what you want to say and then using that when you're talking to them?

You can also tell the person you're talking to that you're nervous. They are there to help you and there might be ways that they can help while you're talking. What do you think?
