Re: I don’t know what to do

Hi h3lp I'm really sorry to hear about your situation. I've copied this info from Refuge (a women's charity) in case it's of use to you "Domestic violence describes any violence or abuse that is used by someone to control or obtain power over their partner. It can include physical, sexual, psyc...

Re: How can I help my 23year old daughter?

Hi worriedmum2, I think your daughter's experience is a very relatable one. It sounds like she thrived in University where she had found a place to be comfortable and have friends around her. Transitioning from Uni to "adult life" can be difficult - I imagine she is living in a different p...

Re: BPD - Scared to let boyfriend hang out by himself with females

Hi kmsx1234567, I respectfully disagree with mihaela - I can understand your fears and insecurities but I can also appreciate your boyfriend's frustrations. It can't be a very good feeling to know you can't spend time with your friends without making your girlfriend unhappy, I also imagine being acc...

Re: No support

Hi Pepsi22, I'm sorry if I'm telling you things you already know or if the info isn't of help to you but just in case Hub of Hope shows support services available in your area: https://hubofhope.co.uk/ Samaritans 116 123 (UK) 24/7 - despite misconceptions, you don't have to be actively suicidal to t...

Re: How much empathy is too much empathy?

Hi sensitivesunshine Just wanted to say that I relate to your post a lot! I find it really difficult to deal with this, because on the one hand I think having empathy is a really good trait and is part of what makes us "good" people - but on the other it's exhausting and upsetting thinking...

Re: Just don’t know how to help anymore

Hi mumtofour, I'm sorry I'm not going to be able to give very good advice on helping your husband. And that's mainly because I don't think you can fix this for him - you clearly are a very loving and supporting partner. You've discussed options with him that he hasn't chosen to go down (like medicat...

Re: Trapped in here

Hi p.d. It sounds like your friend was (and is) trying, but doesn't really know what to do. That's not your fault. It's difficult for a lot of people to understand, and it can be a scary or stressful thing to care for people you care about. I relate to being "intense" with people sometimes...

Bad Day and Bad Days

Hi, I am new. To here and support forums in general. I've had problems with depression/anxiety for a large chunk of my life. And more recently dealing with losing a loved one to suicide. I've seen doctors, I see a counselor. I'm lucky to have reached a place where most days are okay, where I can get...

Re: Hello!

Hi Dory, I'm so sorry for your losses. It must be so difficult dealing with that much loss at once. I've just said something similar in another post. But I had anxiety problems for the first year after losing someone (and it's still something I have to keep an eye on). The anxiety got better, althou...
