Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

    I think im hitting a mental breakdown i just feel tht i can't cope anymore... every day i hate the fact that im alive. I just sit and cry and self harm. I abuse painkillers and vodka trying to get throuhg the day but every day just feels worse and worse. I recently moved areas and lost all my support so now i have nobody. It was the worst mistake of my life. Usually at this point my support worker would get some help for me as when i start drinking lots is when im breaking down but i dont have her anymore. I feel so alone I have no friends, nobody to understand or help me. Ive had enough of this life and i dont see any way forward for me. I dont know where to turn anymore. I feel so low and im panicking about what ill do next. The worst thing is i dont think anyone can even help me because i think im a lost cause. Theres no support in my local area, ive been to the GP, ive tried the mix 1-2-1 thing...... what am i supposed to do next???? I am literally losing it day by day

      Hi Jelly,
      Sorry to hear that things are so difficult for you and that you've lost all your support
      When you moved did your other services not arrange a transfer to your new area? Can your GP not offer any help or signpost you to anywhere that can help?
      Feel free to reach out more here if you need to
      You're a ghost at most

            Hey Jelly,

            Even though things might feel hopeless, continuing to reach out to us here shows some great fighting spirit. Referral times can be a bit of a nightmare too, but hopefully something comes out of that. Assuming you could get it, what kind of support would be most helpful for you at the moment?

            How are you getting on today?
            Taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself.
