    Unfortunately that makes a lot of sense Butterfly, it can be very difficult for someone to understand mental health issues if they haven't dealt with them themselves. That's part of what makes our forums so great, lot's of people helping each other through shared experiences. It's also why services like The Samaritans helpline I mentioned earlier exist as their volunteers are usually in a much...

    Thanks for responding Butterfly.

    I'm sorry to hear you don't want to talk to anyone, though I hope you'll keep my advice in mind in the future. Many people find it scary or worrying to talk about their mental health so it's definitely understandable why you wouldn't want to. Is there anyone you do feel comfortable talking to about how you're feeling? Trying to talk through problems can...

    replied to Games ?
    I've always loved video games ever since I was a child, now I play pretty much every kind out there. This year has been fantastic for games there's been so many great ones released it's hard to keep up with them all!



    I grew up with Sonic too! Have you had a chance to play the new Sonic Mania that came out this year?...

    Hey Butterfly thank you so much for talking about your feelings here that's definitely very brave of you.

    Firstly I want to say self-harm is a very serious issue and I'm so sorry you're having to cope with something like that. Lots of people find it helpful to talk to a professional when it comes to something so serious, such as your GP or a counsellor. Even though it can be scary to...

    I'm pretty sure I'm coming down with a cold unfortunately so I'm probably gonna spend this weekend wrapped up warm in bed! Here's hoping no-one else on here catches one, make sure you dress warm for this time of year.

    Hey Cora Legis,

    Thanks so much for talking about how you're doing, trying to understand your feelings can be very difficult and a lot of people find it easier to understand when they can talk about what they're going through. With that in mind is there anyone close to you in your life you feel like you can talk to about all this? Your recent problems with your friends seem like very specific...

  • Hi girlinpain.

    It's really brave for you to be talking about this here since something like this can be so scary. Self-harm is a very serious issue and I would first recommend trying to talk to your GP or a healthcare professional about this. As I said it's understandable that you might be scared about doing something like that but talking to someone is what a lot of people find really...

    replied to struggling to cope
    Hey there Jellyelephant.

    I'm sorry you're having to deal with so much at the moment, having to cope with people being mad at you on top of your deteriorating mental health sounds awful. You mentioned that your old support worker would help you in ways you found more useful, is there a way for you to get in contact with them again and perhaps explain the situation to your new support worker?...

    If you find it easier to talk anonymously you should try talking to the Sane helpline i mentioned before or even just The Mix one to one chat. The boards are a great place to chat and ask for advice but for more specialised support the one to one chat is a much better resource, you can find more details here http://www.themix.org.uk/get-support/speak-to-our-team

    Even if you just need...

    Thanks for responding Fishbane. Don't worry it's very common for people to feel uncomfortable talking about things like this, I'm sorry that you don't feel like you can open up to anyone. Would you find it easier to talk anonymously like you're doing now but with someone more suited to helping you through your problems? There are lots of great resources out there to help you find the best options...

    replied to Help motivate me
    Hey there Meggles.

    I think we've all had difficulty trying to motivate ourselves from time to time so it's definitely understandable. There's actually a great article on The Mix about study motivation here http://www.themix.org.uk/work-and-st...tion-1354.html that I hope you might find useful. As for me personally, and it's mentioned in that article, I...

    Hi Fishbane.

    Thank you for talking about this on here it's very brave to try and open up about your feelings. It's definitely understandable that you're feeling so low, self-hatred is a very common issue that a lot of people struggle with. What I will say is you don't sound like a bad person and you're not wasting anyone's time by talking about your feelings, that's what these boards...

    replied to Drowning in depression
    Hey there Jess.

    First of all you did a great job explaining yourself so no need to worry about that. It definitely sounds like you've been having a rough time and I'm sorry you've had to go through so much. Bottling up your emotions like that can be very dangerous so it's good that you're talking on here and to your counsellor about it all, is there anyone else in your life you can safely...
