Hi, I'm a 20 year old from the uk struggling with bereavement and undiagnosed... Whatever it might be. I'm hoping to see a therapist once I'm able, but for now, I want to talk to people who might have similar issues. I enjoy art, although I haven't felt very inspired recently (hoping to fix that).

Anyways, glad to be here! πŸ‘

Hi there - thank you for the welcome. I lost my father suddenly over a year ago, but I went through a long period of trying to block it out while focusing on trying to get into university, which I think has made my situation worse overall (since I was trying to hide my grief rather than deal with it).

I also suspect I might have undiagnosed adhd, and some unresolved emotional trauma from my teenage years that has severely affected my social skills, but honestly I've just been feeling really bad lately. It's hard to open up about these things, I've never been able to before!

Either way, I think this could be the beginning of a fresh start.

Yes!And this is the best place to do it.
Sorry about your Dad,I lost mine when I was 12.
When my Bro died,I wanted to talk about it,but my family
weren`t ready.So,I put it in a mental box & waited for counselling.
I got it a year later,& I had kinda dealt with it by then.
So no,it`s absolutely no good to bottle it up!
I highly recommend CRUSE bereavement Care,they are Brilliant πŸ‘
It`s way better talking to a Stranger.
The childhood trauma could have caused so many things,PTSD,BPD,
or just Anxiety..hard to know really.
Reaching out is the first step.
You are so young so you need to sort these things,before they affect
your life πŸ‘

You're completely right, and I'm very sorry that you can relate to the same things.

I feel like I remembering hearing about CRUSE, but I imagine me and my family brushed their card under the carpet. We're all pretty terrible at asking for/giving help to be honest.

Can't hurt to have a look now though, thank you for the advice! πŸ™

Take my advice.Deal with it fully..look at pics/vids anything/everything,
shout,scream do what you need to do,then,Forgive yourself & Heal.
But do take that help πŸ™‚
PM me if you ever struggle βœ¨πŸ•―

Hey scarecrow☺ ,

I am sorry about your loss. I lost my beloved father 3 years ago (+in a 6years time had many other losses family &friends). For me the second year was the hardest than the first.
MoonShapedPool's advice is very wise. And if in UK you have the chance for such service go for it!

Sending a warm hug πŸƒ

Hey there! Thank you and I'm truly sorry you've been through a similar experience. I only just saw your message but I really appreciate your kind words and welcome. πŸ™

I've already taken MoonShapedPool's advice and checked out the CRUSE website, and already it's so useful, so thank you both again for the suggestion! I wish you both the best.
