@Dyl, I'm sorry things are so hard for you atm. It seems like you have some great friends supporting you through this which is great.
Do you have any other family who you can confide in that might be able to help you approach the conversation with your mum?
Hey there @Dyl,
I've just been reading through this thread, it sounds like you are under a lot of stress from things at school and the situation with your mum, is that right?
It's hard to tell someone about a tough time when they are also going through something. Do you think writing a letter might be an easier way telling your mum? That way you don't necessarily have to give it to her straight away. Another thing that might be helpful is to ask your mum if you can tell her, what do you think?
Is there anything you can do to distract yourself from the stress right now? We have a massive list of coping strategies and distractions if you need any ideas
I am finishing with ReachOut this week, say good-bye here. I'll miss you all!
Hey @Dyl ,
I'm sorry you've been having a tough time lately. How are you doing today? I second @Jay-RO's suggestions. I also love that you've shared some motivational speeches that help you to stay calm. It's so great you have someone who you look up to, and is your role model!
