Welcome to the forums and thank you for your honest and open
post. We can hear that you are having a really tough time at the moment, we
want you to know that it is ok not to feel ok and that you have done an amazing
thing by reaching out to us here on the forums. Thank you for being brave and
reaching out for support, that is an incredible step towards feeling better.
We think that it would be worth giving us a call on 1300 22
4636 to talk through these thoughts and feelings. It can be scary, but out
wonderful team can talk to you about strategies for when you are feeling low as
well as talk about how you get other support in the community. You can also
call our friends at Lifeline 13 11 14 or KidsHelpline 1800 55 1800.
If you prefer, there are also a number of webchat options if
talking on the phone doesn’t work for you. They are not all 24/7 but you can
check out these links if you want to try it that way:

We also really recommend speaking to a GP about how you are
feeling too. It can be hard to open up, but they are experts in helping people
to feel as well as they can. Lockdown is a really tough time and opening up to a
GP is a great way to build a plan for feeling better.
Thank you again for your post today, it is an amazing thing
to have done. Please feel free to update us on how you are feeling, if you are
comfortable, or jump in to some other conversations on the site.
