Re: I’m feeling really alone right now

@Saltwaterdreamtime do you think having more support might be helpful at the moment?

If so then would you like to look at possible ways to get it?

I know you've probably tried heaps of stuff already, but there might be some services or supports that you haven't come across yet, or that aren't as well known.

If nothing else it would at least mean one extra person to talk to.

Re: I’m feeling really alone right now

Hey @Saltwaterdreamtime , I'm sorry if my earlier post annoyed/upset you. That wasn't my intention. As @Maddy-RO said I thought you'd posted it the day earlier cause of the forum glitches and was just trying to see how things were going. Also, I'm sorry if you feel like you're repeating yourself to multiple people on here or that people don't get your situation. It's an anonymous forum with lots of users, and sometimes we forget things about each other, or a new user might not know as many details as users who have spoken with you before. That doesn't mean that we don't care about you on here, otherwise, we wouldn't post to see how you're going. 


I know you said earlier that you're feeling shitty and that no one wants to listen to you. Sounds like you're feeling pretty lonely and hopeless at the moment, I'm so sorry you're having to deal with that. If there was someone in your non-virtual life who would listen to you, what would you tell them?

Re: I’m feeling really alone right now

Hi @Saltwaterdreamtime,


I am just catching up on this thread since we last spoke on Monday. I am hearing these last few days have been really tough- you have been doing so much to stay on top of work, support your brother, and trying to find time for yourself, it is completely understandable that you have felt anxious and I am truly sorry to hear how painful this week has been Heart 


From discussions we have had the last few months, I want to acknowledge that you have courageously tried so many different professional supports, mentoring and have reached out for help to a lot of different services. You know yourself best and and we trust that when you need to, you know what works for you and what doesn't when it comes to seeking help offline Heart 


I also recognise that it can feel really lonely when you are the main support for other people who depend on you, and while we are limited by our online service, we want to be a community you can come to to talk when you need to lean on someone. I hope that we can work together to make this a safe space for you, and a safe space for every member of our community- there are a lot of people who care about you here including @MisoBear @Beautifullybroken @Tiny_leaf and the RO team Heart 


I'm also about to send you an email, so keep an eye on your inbox this morning Smiley Happy
