    Thanks. Have nothing to say anymore. Cant say anything right. Either gets the police round or makes my family feel awkward or upsets people. So i don’t know why reach out for help

    Also am home alone for a bit tomorrow. So i don’t know if can keep safe, probably can but i asked samaratians if they can ring me and if can be female of that time and they said they will try to do that. But am scared. Cause dont really do that sorta thing. (Ringing for support)

    [Edit - wrote this on wrong thread was meant to write on "cant breath" thread now cant write it on that thread too caause would go against rules of double posting. So doesnt matter]


    Thankyou<3. Cant sleep cause cant breath & even in my sleep i an waking up out of breath & thought was cause of dreams of being suffocated but didnt have that dream today & im still waking up constantly out of breath so im thinking it aint stress is physical thing & maybe its because i have low iron & never take the pills & is getting worse. & i am getting so fed up of trying to catch my breath by needing to constanstly deep breath until feel have caught my breath but it takes ages to feel have caught my breath then just happens few mins later. I know people can have heart failure by it if gets so bad & not treated because the blood & oxygen aint getting to the heart and has to work too hard to get oxgyen. Been prescribed so much over years But i physically cant take the pills anyway. Which shame cause paid lot for all of them

    TLDR- think im going to get heart failure :)

    Hi Shaunie

    I'm sorry to hear how you were feeling this morning, I hope things are a little better now, at least physically. Have you been back to your doctor about the breathing? It can be really tough when doctors say it's "just stress", but you know your body best so it could be worse trying a different doctor.

    How are you doing being home alone today? Having a plan for Samaritans to ring is really positive-having the self-awareness to recognise that things might be difficult and to put in place something that could help is really good, so well done you. Even if you don't want to talk to them at the time, it's great that you had the idea.

    Sending hugs, we're all here for you

    Thanks but samaritans are ignoring me. So shit. 

    I just woke up from a dream that i was using public toilets and then the door feel down and then everyone was laughing at me. (Obviously cause ive been thinking about the sexual abuse & how felt) & felt humilated again. Was horrible dream

    Got email saying an appointment every two weeks from starting at 17th july for emotional support Every wednesday. Which sounds okay. Still quite while away.  But every two weeks is ages right?  Like thats only twice a month:/// will take forever to be able to feel comfortable to say what want. Idk if the counsellng would of been every two weeks either. But i guess makes sense if its a service can use up to time feel comfortable. 

    Am scared incase dont feel comfortable with the person

    Hey Shaunie,

    Sending all my love and hugs. I'm sorry to hear how you've been feeling recently, I can really hear how much you've been hurting <3

    How's the thing with Samaritans making you feel? I can imagine it must feel crappy to have them treating you this way. I think that they should just say if they can't answer your question - it doesn't seem that fair to ignore someone, especially when they're distressed.

    I'm really glad to hear you got the email. I get you on the annoyance of having an appointment only once every two weeks. Keep us updated when it starts, and I hope that they can help you and that you'll be comfortable <3
