"Hi there,

Welcome to the boards. Hope you gind it more helpful.

Its hard to find support, sorry that no one will take you to see your gp/doctor i am not sure if this is the same for you but you are aload to book doctors appointments without your parents being there and you can attend them unacccompanied.

Depression and other illness can be quite scary especially when your quite young. Do have a look round the site there are lots of useful articles and information on here.

You are not alone.

Sunday to thursday we have support chats and general chats on at 8pm till 9:30pm if you would like to join them. They are a great way to get to know people and seak support at the same time. Heres the link to the page -

Hope to see you round

  • Highly experienced addict.. worried

    I take a substance, daily for several months. Expensive. Was old school back in day, quit years, started again on this, last summer, I know my stuff but in bit of panic. This purchase is cut with something that is worrying me. Heart pounding, feel dreadful, can just deal if distracting self but very scary. Scared to tell services of even girlfriend, she knows I've been doing but pretends not to know. 3g a day. Posting could just be because of panic.. advice may settle me.

    I take as im the one everyone turns to, limit hit last summer and started so I could keep being there for everyone. Not great for my relationship.

    Thanks in advance

    Hey there Jambo,

    It is great to see that you are being mindful about what you are doing, and amazing that you want to help yourself so that you can help others! Being worried is only natural, and there are always people to help you through it.

    Unfortunately, we aren't experts here so we can't really give you advice. However, there are some sites where they can give you some more expert advice.

    The NHS has a website that allows you to find professional services near you which are right for you, which you can view here.

    There is also a website called FRANK which gives friendly and confidential advice about substance use here.

    I hope this helps! We are definitely here to listen if you ever need
    I remain,
