I'm not doing so great right now.

I'm really struggling. Yesterday I got myself I to such an emotional state I couldn't cope and walk out. I disappeared for a couple hours. I couldn't bring myself down. I'm so tired and tearful all the time. My anxiety is so high, every situation I encounter sets it off. I'm not in a good place and struggling to find my feet again

    Heya @GreenTea it sounds like you're going through a bit of a rough spell. I can see that you got into a state and walked out. 

    On the one hand it's great that you're reaching out to get support but on the other it's been so difficult for you right now. 

    Like Erin said, are you able to speak to a GP or anyone? Maybe try and contact a local charity that might be able to bump you up faster? 

    It's good to take some time for yourself sometimes. It might be nice to get out to somewhere quiet and listen to some music and just watch the world around you. 

    It's good that you can recognise these situations, even if they seem to be all the time right now. Just because you are not in a good place right now, doesn't mean you'll be stuck in it forever, just remember that! 

    I'm sorry I couldn't offer much more but I'm always here for a chat :)

    Hey @GreenTea sending massive hugs your way <3 it sounds like you’re really struggling at the moment, you’ve done really well reaching out and speaking to us. 

    The others have given you some great advice but I just wanted to add that I really hope the assessment goes well and that you get the support you deserve. Make sure you make it clear to them how difficult things have been for you and don’t play it down. How are you feeling about the assessment at the moment?

    Always here if you ever need a chat or just someone to listen <3

    Thank you both.


    I'm kinda anxious about my assessment because I don't want them to turn around and say I don't need support or anything they offer. It's taken so long to get this point and I don't want it to fall through

    I really understand that, I was the same when I was assessed, I was so anxious that it would go wrong. 

    Unfortunately there’s not much you can do other than wait and see, be completely honest with them and up front about how difficult things are for you. 

    You deserve support <3

    Can you research a bit about what they offer so you're aware of what might be ideal for you before you go in? Then you won't worry if you'll get turned away or not. 

    You can make sure that what you say fits in (not lie but making your wording right) to what they offer. 

    I'm not sure if that's any use but I've been told previously to exaggerate symptoms to doctors to try and get bumped up the waiting list. I'm bad at lying so will never happen but I guess lying a little to get yourself help isn't a bad thing either.

    Hey @GreenTea so sorry to hear you’ve had a rough day with work today and that you are feeling fed up. I can really relate to that feeling, sending massive hugs. 

    Is your assessment tomorrow? Good luck if so 💜

    My assessment went well. I've got a gateway worker now and been offered different groups and therapy to start within the next 3 weeks.
