    Hi everyone,

    im usually the helper/fixer..

    my job and role requires this of me and l can normally cope. But tonight was the first time I’ve felt so alone, unappreciated and empty. And l feel quilt for feeling this way. I guess l just need a break. I am abused in my job by mentally unwell people and while l normally don’t take things personally tonight l just.....

    l come home and I’m crying silently as my partner sleeps and all l wanted was to relax as l have to get up and go to work again tomorrow. I hate to sound like such a mater.

    l thought l could text instead of calling a help line, but it’s apparently closed.
    anyway. It doesn’t feel right talking on here when everyone else is experiencing similar if not worst feelings.

    I think l feel better just typing this.

    please know you are not alone.. you are loved, appreciated and you matter! Don’t be so hard on yourself and NEVER fix a temporary problem with a permanent solution. 🙏❤️
