Oh I hear you... @scared01 Those helplines can be good when we're feeling really intense but I think definitely a good rapport with an ongoing counsellor is a top tier priority Def don't be too hard on yourself with the helpline counsellors, these guys are super qualified and have a lot of regular callers I highly doubt they're sick of you. That's their chosen industry because they want to help
Can you identify anything that has been working for you, and helps your mental wellbeing?

yeah i guess so, i still bad for keeping on ringing though.
um i just seem to be going around and around and around in a nevr ending downward spiral for my mental and phsyical health.
for th moment im jsut using distractions as a way of coping

@scared01 I have a lot of friends in that industry - definitely don't feel bad They are super trained to support you and many others in similar situations... What sort of distractions have been working?

@Bree-RO im in a fair amount of pain both mentally and physically and am thinking about SH but im trying to resist it.
im trying the different distractions and its pretty much time to take the sleeping tablets so ill probably be asleep by 11ish so if i can last till then then ill be fine through the night as long as i dont wake up having nightmares

Hey @scared01 I am stoked to hear you have the goal of getting through til 11pm - especially as that's half an hour away. Thanks for letting me know too What sort of music have you been listening to lately during distraction time?
