@independent_'s post in the thread 'Struggling'
Hey bubbles,

I'm sorry to hear you're struggling again at the moment. I can't really offer you any real adivce, but I noticed in your post that you said you had got through this in previous years.

I just wanted to say this - you've done it before, you can do it again. I believe in you, you've got through this before. That shows me that you're a very very strong person.

Please continue to be as strong as you can - I know you can do it!

Also, you're not alone - we're all here to listen to you so well done for posting.

Take care,

Hey. Hope you are doing okay?

I completely understand what you mean about feeling low mainly at night. like you said, It is probably because you have nothing else you need to be doing then and so have more time to think. Is there anything you could do that makes you feel slightly happier during this time (watch a film, read etc..)?

Do you know what is making you feel this way? I know you mentioned losing your nan which must have been really hard for you and I’m very sorry to hear that!

I’m not too sure what would be best for you to do in the situation but i would say it would be best to speak to someone like your gp because they could tell you for sure if it does need looking into more and even if it didn’t, it would put your mind at rest a bit? I know how hard it can be seeing someone though so just make sure you do what feels right for you.

Remember you can also always come to the board to get support and to chats as well.

Let us know how things go? I’m sorry if this didn’t help at all, I think I rambled a bit but I tried... :)
