I'm new on here and idk what to really put. My life has become pretty awful recently, everyday is just really hard. Some really shitty things have happened to me in the past couple of months. I keep having nightmares about what happened and then I wake up and its more of the same. Idk what else to say really, I guess I just don't know what to do anymore.

    Hi @blue22 and welcome to our boards. :)

    On boards is a very good support network and in our support chats, too. But here are some excellent articles that may spark your interest to begin with.


    I've just noticed there are 19 pages to choose from, so I hope you find something that can help you. Otherwise do reach out on our boards for help.

    I hope you find what you want here @The Mix

    Best wishes,
    Mandy

    I'm driven by self doubt.

    Hey there blue22, welcome to the boards.

    I'm sorry to hear you're having such a rough time at the moment, is there anyone in your life you can talk to about all the awful stuff that's been happening to you? Trying to talk through your problems can be hard but it's always a great first step to take.

    You also mentioned that you keep having nightmares and it's understandable that dealing with that would just make everything worse. There's actually a great article about dreams and nightmares on The Mix here http://www.themix.org.uk/your-body/sleeping/dreams-and-nightmares-6545.html so feel free to read through that if you want.

    As Mike said if you want to talk more about your specific problems feel free to start a dedicated thread in the Health & Wellbeing category and I hope you enjoy your time on the boards!

    I have some new friends to talk to but it's hard for me to talk about what happened. Thank you for the article I'll take a look at it. And yeah I made a new thread.
