    Really struggling to stay safe this evening

    I'm sorry for posting again. It's just that I'm really struggling to stay safe. I know all the distraction techniques, but they're not helping. Not sure if it's because I don't want them to help.

    struggling ?

    At the moment I’m struggling so much, my mum has been diagnosed with terminal cancer with months left to live. The thought of losing her is heartbreaking.......my world feels like it is falling apart. I’m watching her die slowly and I can’t stop it! I don’t want to be without her.
