    Hi Ellie!

    I'm sorry to hear about your relationship, but I'm glad that you've reached out and told someone. That's a really brave and important step, and I'm proud of you for having done this.

    I just want to clarify what kind of group this is that you were with? Is a support group of some kind? But they seem lovely as they're wondering how you're doing, so that's great to hear.

    Well if you're comfortable telling them, I'd try to maybe explain what's been happening, how it started happening, and how it makes you feel. However, as much as you're comfortable telling them is also okay.

    They seem really nice and they want to support and be there for you. Maybe they could provide you with some support just themselves or direct you to other places too.

    Hey @ellie2000

    Just wanted to check in to see how you are doing? :heart:
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
    '' It's a beautiful day and I can't stop myself from smiling "

    Hi @ellie2000,

    glad to hear you are expressing yourself own a support group. I hope the group provides you with comfort and support :heart: I agree with @kimberley1907 in that telling them only what you are comfortable with is totally okay. you can take it at your own pace, one step at a time. you could also write down things that you want to say before the group, as a little reminder or aid. they could even read it if you would find that more comfortable than saying it out loud. whatever works for you :blush:

    the cleaner shouldn't be buying drink with your money, no alternative needed - he shouldn't be doing that. you mentioned before that your mum knows about your cleaner, but it takes a while for things to be resolved. do you have any updates at all?
