    Hi topsy, hope u are okay (and safe?) Thinking of u.

    grateful, today, for ...

    Milk in the fridge, and lots of it, to keep brewing cocoa

    Finding a pretty colour that suits me, the right shade of blue...

    Hi topsy,

    Your post is quite vague so we just wanted to check in to make sure you are okay. If you are feeling unsafe please reach out to Beyond Blue 1300 22 4636 or Lifeline 13 11 14. 

    In the event that you are feeling like hurting yourself, it is important that you take immediate steps to keep yourself safe. You can do this by:

    • Speaking to your doctor or psychologist (if you have one) if he or she is available right now

    • If, however, you feel unable to keep yourself safe this is an emergency and you need to call 000 (triple zero).

    Like others here, I am hoping you are okay.

    Life can be really hard at times topsy, is there just one thing you are thankful right now?

    Reach out topsy, call someone, people do care.

    Thinking of you
