Hi
I joined some time back but never posted. Guess I didn't know what to say really...still not sure what to say but wanted to reach out and make contact with others who have MH issues. Have lost several sources of support in recent weeks and feeling lost.

Trying to persevere with meds for the past 18 months, started counselling after a suicide attempt a few months ago. Trying to hold down a full time job, caring for two other people with physical health issues which are impacting on my mental health.

Surviving but struggling.

Welcome to MHF.

Trying to hold down a full time job, caring for two other people is admirable, and not at all easy.

I'm sorry you attempted. Glad you're alive. Life is precious, and you are needed, and loved.

Don't give on that counseling.

Good luck :)

Having a mental illness and attempted suicide as well as being a carer to two people is a lot to handle.

Good to be here,
Well-wishes from Kakapo:)

The wings that I have cannot lift me
Into the air for magical flight
I am scared that i'll vanish
In the eternal dark night

But the kakapo keeps struggling
When he's losing the fight
When a parrot can't fly,
he'll still sit and write.
