    Jackson, we're here to help you and sit beside you to help you stay safe. Are you able to tell us a bit about yourself. As Paul said this is a very supportive place to talk.

    If you're struggling to talk about your distress, maybe start with a bit about you, like how old you are, if you live on your own etc. Just whatever you want to tell us so we can keep you company.

    May I ask you though, do you need any medical attention at the moment?

    Kaz

    Oh that's good to hear mate. That's what we need to know first. Now we can chat. Whatever you'd like to talk about.

    And, feel free to ask questions if you want. Anything you want to know.

    I like music and dogs too, but I've never managed surfing. No beaches nearby. 😀 And I'm too old haha.

    I'm very sorry to hear about your brother, that must have been very hard for you, and probably still is. Were you close to him?

    I hope your housemates are good to live with.

    Of course - you mentioned dogs, do you have some? I've got two poodle crosses. One's a cavoodle and the other's a moodle (Maltese cross). They make me laugh even when I don't want to.

    Dogs are good people.

    Hey Jackson,

    Go for it, whatever you want to chat about, it's cool. I've never tried surfing, i'm better at rollerblading along the beach than being in the beach.

    You are never too old to surf. I don't live near the beach I live in inner Melbourne but go down to the coast as often as I can it's an hour and half but so worth it.

    Yeah super close, he was my best friend, it's still really hard

    i don't have a dog of my own but my family has a golden retriever

    Yeah CMF you either have to hold onto your board and dive under or get smashed in the face and possibly injured - the latter is no fun believe me I have experienced it
