Re: I feel alone. i'm looking to talk to someone.

@hpatel04  Health issues can be so isolating and hard to handle. Smiley Sad I have been dealing with a few myself and they really interfere with everyday tasks. Sometimes, it can feel as if no one understands or cares about what you're going through, or they aren't able to see the extent of the problem and how it's been affecting you.

I agree with @mspaceK that coming on here was a great first step towards getting some help! Well done! Smiley Happy

Are there any online forums or information resources for your particular condition? Livewire is an online community for people aged 12-20 who are living with a chronic or serious illness or disability. I'd love to find some forums or supports for young people with my particular issues because it seems as if I am always the youngest patient at my specialist's.

You might also be able to ask your doctor if there are any support services or groups in your local area. Some specialists can provide leaflets about what to expect from medical procedures or how to cope with particular conditions, which I found really helpful.

Re: I feel alone. i'm looking to talk to someone.

Hi @mspaceK

I'm sorry to hear about your health issues. How are you doing? 

I'm US resident but as the reach out USA was broken so it brought me to this site. I don't think I will be able to get help from the sites you mentioned. I have been talking to a counselor recently.

Thank you so much for your help and support! 

I'm doing well! 

 

Re: I feel alone. i'm looking to talk to someone.

@hpatel04 wow you're like a world away! I hope you can find some sites closer to home that could be beneficial for you. But for now I'm happy to listen and support you as much as I can. Smiley Happy I'm okay btw, thanks for asking.

Hi @WheresMySquishy

I agree, it so hard to deal with. It feels like no one understands us and sometimes they think I'm overreacting when I'm not. 

I'm not sure if there are any particular websites which could help but I will definitely check that out. I wasn't aware about that, Thank you so much for sharing.

@mspaceK 

I'm happy to make new friends!!

@Tiny_leaf

I'm sorry to hear that. I'm a US resident so I don't think I would be able to use kids helpline. I have been talking to a counselor lately which is helpful. I will look for the support groups. 

I go back to college in two weeks which will make it harder. Thank you so much for your help and support!

Hi @letitgo

I have been dealing with some health issues and the medication has side effects which are really bothering. Thank you so much for your support!

Re: I feel alone. i'm looking to talk to someone.

Hey @hpatel04, welcome to the forums!

 

First of all, it's so great that you're on here, chatting to people. Even though we're not there physically with you, you're not alone because we care about you here! You will always have friends on the forums who want to support you. 

 

I'm wondering if you could tell us a little bit more about what's going on? I'm hearing that you're dealing with some health issues and that your medication is giving you some troubling side-effects. I'm also hearing that you feel unsupported by your best friend, who says they're too busy to support you right now. Is that right?

Re: I feel alone. i'm looking to talk to someone.

@hpatel04 that would make things much harder...

I'm glad that your councilor has been helpful though!

The Samaritans is an international helpline, and they do work in the US if you need a similar service to KHL.

I think that a lot of collages have nurses/ health clinics on site, as well as counselors. Do you think these might be useful when you're back in college? 

Re: I feel alone. i'm looking to talk to someone.

@hpatel04 I'd love to know more about you. Do you go to school for example? I just finished uni and I guess I'm considered am oldie on reach out now. Haha 

 

How are you feeling today?
