Sharing through experience

Postby ModeratingTeam » Mon Jan 10, 2011 2:26 pm

Mutual support is about giving and receiving support through sharing your experiences and feelings of mental illness with others. It means you may not feel quite so alone, and, when life is difficult, it can be encouraging to know that just by sharing your feelings and experiences, you can be helpful to someone else.

I'm new here and I'm feeling pretty low - recovering from a breakdown last year, horrible rows with partner, problems at work. One of the things that is causing me alot of pain is two past episodes of sexual abuse perpetrated on me as an adult invovling the mental healthcare systerm. My partner chooses not to believe me about this and it's causing me all sorts of heart ache. Sorry to lay this on you, but I could really do with some support and advice. I did report one of the incidents to the police, but lost my nerve after my partner told them he didn't believe me. I have all sorts of trust issues now and am having a really hard time.

I believe I am able to do this. Whether it is received or reciprocated well is another matter entirely.

I have been through much hurt and pain in my life; i have had, so far, three and 3/4 years of counselling which has helped me greatly; i still have a fair way to go on my "journey", but i am more than happy to share my successes, and share things that will help others! If just ONE person feels that i have helped them, in some way or another, then i am more than happy! 8-)

I'm new here, and feeling quite stressed. I have a number of things which are starting to build my anxieties again, and I'm starting to feel out of control.

I don't know where to begin, or even if this is the right place to post, but here is the nub of it.

1) Eldest daughter getting married in a month. Wedding plans and financial pressures starting to surface. She is marrying into army life, and will be heading to Scotland eventually.

2) Youngest son starting university the day after the wedding. We are now starting to have to buy equipment and books which is already getting a bit expensive. He is feeling guilty, but I am reassuring him that this is fine. Which it is. But I'm still stressing.

3) I am supposed to be starting back at a local college one day a week from early September, but am stressing that course will not have enough people and will not run. The crux of this is that I am self employed and if this runs will have to cancel customers, if it doesn't then I won't. But I am running out of time to get this organised. Also my workload is starting to spill over into weekends, which is not ideal.

4) I am already studying (supposedly) for theory exams as well as hopefully starting the above course. Not finding time.

5) Lastly, my last remaining uncle commited suicide back in May and we have his ashes scattering ceremony next Friday.

I think I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed.

Hi adetheleveller, hello and welcome to the forum! I hope you find it helpful being on here. It certainly sounds like you've got a lot going on at the moment, that's a lot of stuff to be dealing with! I'm so sorry to hear about losing your last remaining uncle to suicide, that's very sad and must be very difficult for you. Just a little suggestion for you, you'll probably find that you get more replies if you copy what you've posted here and set it up as a brand new post in this Mutual Support Group section. Anyway, please let us know how you're getting on and how you're feeling etc.
