    New here and not really sure what to do. Actually signed up over 2 years ago but never went through with posting anything....it's been a long ride. Just when I feel like I'm getting back on track I fall back down again. I'm tired of feeling this way and the day to day challenge of pretending to be ok or trying to get through the day without breaking down. I don't even know where to begin or what to do anymore.

    You are not alone in these feelings. There are people here that will chat if you need. I am taking life 1 hour at a time recently so I understand it can be hard

    Hi Fruit Tingle

    do you have a GP or therapist you can see about these feelings?

    I put it off for a long time because I wanted to deal with it myself, but eventually got some help.

    even if you just check in on this forum once a day without taking any other action, that might help a little.

    Hi Summerinvincible,

    Thanks for replying. I have tried but not sure it helped much. It's hard to know what to do 😔.

    Yep, it sucks. Have you tried the live chat on here? That helped me when I needed it a few years ago.

    Do you feel like there’s any small thing that you enjoy doing right now?

    It does 😔. Yeah I did earlier this year and they put me onto some contacts. Might try the online chat again if I can't sleep again tonight.

    No, not at the moment. Thanks again for replying though.

    You’re welcome. I usually check in at least once a day if you need someone to talk to.

    here to listen anyway, if that’s any small help.

    Hi Fruit Tingle,

    Sorry about what you are going through and thanks so much for sharing I think there are many people that can relate to what you are saying. I know when its ongoing it can feel very hopeless, I used to feel like that. How are you feeling today? May I ask how you have been passing the days?

    It is really hard to pretend your okay when you're not. Are you pretending to everyone?

    Love

    Thanks for replying. I've been back a few times since your reply but don't really know what to say.

    I thought I was improving but now I don't know. Why are things so hard!

    I really don't know what to do. I've tried counselling and talking to friends and family and I thought it was helping opening up but now I don't know.

    Hi Fruit Tingle,

    Its okay thanks for your message. So it was helping but now you are feeling low again.

    Do you want to talk about how you were feeling when it was helping?

    Sometimes its just slow progress and we can have down turns. Reaching out is good so I think you're doing well there.

    Love pumps

    Thankyou for your reply Pumpkinella.

    It's been a while since I've been on here. I've been trying my best and doing everything I can think of to help but it just seems hopeless.

    You a right in saying it's slow progress. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I wish sometimes I could see a glimour into the future so I know if and when things will change and get better.

    Why do people say they are there for you but don't ever show up.
