    This is the worst my anxiety has been for a good while now. I can’t sleep because the thoughts are just going round in my head and I keep going all shaky and weird.

    I lost a lot of close friends due to my destructive behaviour. I only have two left now. And, it's sad that I say this, they're the people that have seen me at my absolute worst, those that stuck with me despite the way I've treated them in the past. I thought I was progressing but it turns out I've barely moved an inch and I'm scared that no matter what I do, I'm always going to end back up to square 1.

    Wide awake. Thank you anxiety and thoughts. Still really upset tbh and receiving threats just aren't nice. :/ Wish my safe spaces felt safe to reach out properly in

    My brother's fiancee is in hospital really poorly. I'm worried about her. I'm also worried about my brother because he's gone silent on everyone and I know he's hurting because he can't be with her because of covid... Part of me wants to break lockdown rules and jump on a train to London to see if my brother is ok

    I realized how lonely I am. I have a lot to talk about but no one to talk to. I feel annoying always messaging people first. Then when I say I don't have friends, there are people who get offended. But the said people are no where to be seen when I need them the most.
    Would anyone care, would anyone cry If I finally stepped off of this ledge tonight?

    I can totally relate to this.. and when you stop messaging first you get the whole "you don't talk to me" comments.. friendships are a 2 way thing.
    Hope you are ok. Here if you need a chat

    It does really suck to have many friends but not a actual real friend. I agree about friendship being 2 way thing and I'm tried of trying on my end. It feels hopeless sometimes. But thank you, I'm here for you too @GreenTea

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    Today has been tough and I'm worried that it's getting worse. I had a really vivid image pop up yesterday and thought about writing notes. I also spoke to my friend and later admitted how I felt but not to the full extent because I really didn't want to cry. I have hold it together but it's hard.

    Have another shift at work today . I really don’t want to go the thought of going just makes me feel sick now . I hate it there but I have no choice but to stay . There’s nothing worse than being in a job that your parents forced you into and now you’ve have to stay because you’ve got bills to pay and universities to save for

    We scattered my Dad's ashes yesterday. I've felt really weird and choked up since parting from him like that. I've found turning to my friends to joke around is helping but this choked up feeling isn't going away. I miss him an awful lot and I feel like I need a good cry but no tears are coming out lol. Idk what I want, grief is so weird.

    Sending big hugs @Liam grief is a weird thing and it’s ok to feel however you’re feeling, I’m glad joking around is helping a bit though and we’re all here if you need to talk about anything <3

    Hugs liam! 🤗

    Grief is a weird thing and we all deal with it in different ways,
    If a cry isn't coming on could you take some time and listen to some sad songs or something?

    You just take it easy and do what you think is best, the correct answer will probably come to you soon enough x

    Hugs Liam ❤️ You're so incredibly strong and I know this is hard but you got this! It's completely normal to feel choked up after doing something that and it's tough when it brings back memories too. If you need a good cry, perhaps try watching a really sad film or listen to some sad music, I always think it's easy to let it out when I do those things 💛

    Hugs @Liam pal :heart: just copying echoing what everyone else has said, there's no 'normal' way to feel or path around grief - do whatever comes naturally to you, and if it's wanting to cry is what comes to you do Zen's idea watch a sad film or listen to some sad toons
    but idk tho

    I've actually had a very similar experience. My dad died when I was 9 and I remember feeling like I wanted to cry but I couldn't. It takes a while to actually process something like that cause it was only after my dad had been dead for a while that it felt real to me and it was easier to feel things about it.

    It isn't gonna be easy but after your brain has had some time to accept things it becomes a bit easier to cry and let things out
