Re: Holy fuck

@Saltwaterdreamtime shit.. that must've awful, I'm so, so sorry you had to see that.

Do you know what you need right now, or any self care activities that might help you in the short term? 

Re: Holy fuck

I feel like I can’t breathe

Re: Holy fuck

@Saltwaterdreamtime one thing I do when I feel that way is to hold my breath for a little while, so I feel in control of it again. When I'm ready, I breath out for 4 seconds, breath in for 4 seconds, and then keep doing the 4 second breathing for a while. 

Re: Holy fuck

No I’m sorry

Re: Holy fuck

That's okay, it doesn't work for everyone.

Would you like a distraction for a bit? 

Re: Holy fuck

@Saltwaterdreamtime  I'm really sorry you had to see that. That's awful. Smiley Sad Hopefully someone can report the video and get it taken down.

Re: Holy fuck

@mrmusic I'm just wondering, is there another way of putting it so that people still know roughly what has happened?

Sorry to bring his up with you, and I definitely understand the point of doing it, but I feel like some of the details might be important to the discussion, otherwise @Saltwaterdreamtime probably wouldn't have included them...

Would something like a trigger warning help instead maybe?

I'm sorry if I said some of that wrong or something and I don't mean any disrespect to you at all, I just thought it might be important to bring up..

Re: Holy fuck

Hey @Tiny_leaf, no problems bringing this one up. Smiley Happy We've been having a few discussions about that this morning, so I'll wait for @Andrea-RO to re-edit the post. It is quite hard to judge these kind of threads, and I didn't get it right last night. I apologise if this caused you or @Saltwaterdreamtime any problems. Heart
