Hey @dragon3 


It sounds like you're going through a lot right now Smiley Sad. Thank you for sharing with us, it was very brave of you. It must be hard dealing with all of that while also trying to support your boyfriend Jason, and trying to sort out a new place to live. You mentioned you are self-harming again which is tough. Are you receiving any professional support at the moment? It's good that you have reached out for support by posting on here Heart. We are here to listen and support you where we can. It's also good that you have contacted the police regarding verbal/ physical abuse. You've taken the right steps.  It's nice that Jason, Kate, Ellie, and Ellie's mum, are supportive of you. It always helps to have a shoulder to lean on. 

Also, just so you know I edited out some for your post around self-harming because it was a bit too detailed (and therefore potentially triggering for users), which goes against our guidelines which can be found here

If you ever are in need of counselling, please see our help page here. You can call Kids Helpline for example, they operate 24/7.

Hey @dragon3 Smiley Happy


Thanks for sharing what's going on for you right now. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate at the moment, and I'm sorry that things are tough right now. I think it's great that you want to focus on yourself right now as well as helping those close to you. It's really important that we take care of ourselves too. Are you getting any professional support at the moment to help with things? 

Re: giving up on life right now

Hi @dragon3! I'm so sorry about your situation. Smiley Sad It sounds like you're going through a lot. It must be so difficult.

Do you have the support of any neighbours? Maybe you could also make a plan about what to do if the abuse gets too much. It could include helplines you can call, coping strategies, who you can talk to, steps to make yourself safe and what to do if you need to leave the house in an emergency.
