Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

Hey @Tiny_leaf . Wow, I'm so sorry to hear about that. I hope you're ok!

 

Hmm I'm not sure about any of the "secret" public health services you recommended, in Vicoria or where I live. But I haven't really looked, I don't know what to search for anyway. Do you mean you stopped recommending Headspace or?

Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

@Agenderandproudofit thanks for saying it's not childish. Sometimes it just relaxes me, focusing on what colours to do & whatnot. I was looking at a Creative Haven Country Christmas colouring book, I might buy it, and maybe some others, I'm not sure yet. 

 

Glad you walk aswell!

Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

@musicfan_xo yeah they take a while to find...

It took me going to the ED before someone gave me a list of resources.

 

Yeah, I've stopped suggesting people go there now, unfortunately they're the only specialist youth psychosis unit in my state which makes things harder..

 

And yeah, I'm alright, for a car crash it was pretty minor so I just have a sore neck. 

Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

Ooh colouring in's heaps of fun, I need to get my colouring books out soon...

Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I don't find their webchat helplines that helpful either, most of the time I get someone who is rude and lacks experience in my opinion, so I barely use them unless I can't get through on other helplines. But this is just my experience, I'm not trying to put anybody off, because it may be helpful to them @Tiny_leaf 

 

happy New Year everyone 

Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

@musicfan_xo i think is such a great thread, i think a lot of people having been feeling the loneliness lately and needing to find people to talk to. How is everyone feeling today?

Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

Thank you. I'm struggling a lot @A_Friend 

Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

@musicfan_xo have you found that talking to people on these forums has helped you anyway? Have you thought about trying to connect with people through things like support or volunteering within your community? I'm glad that you have some online friends that have been able to connect with. 

 

@Agenderandproudofit I'm sorry to hear that you have rejected so much that you have become used to. I'm glad to hear you have found someone you can connect with though.

 

@Tiny_leaf I'm happy to hear that your okay and the car crash was only minor.

Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

@A_Friend sometimes it helps to come on forums yeah. I've tried volunteering too but I can't do that either, even before COVID

Re: Looking for people to talk to please.

@musicfan_xo I'm glad to hear you tried, I think it could help you to continue to try different hobbies like sport or painting/drawing classes, dance etc. to try to find a community of people that live within the same state and you could see more often
