Simply Seeking Support

Hello, there!

I am hoping to connect with individuals who will be able to understand some of the issues I am going through, and additionally hoping that I may be able to help others in kind.

For a start, I am a twenty-six-year-old female. I moved a significant distance from my immediate family and friends to take care of my grandparents, both of whom have now passed away. It has been difficult for me to make new friends; I currently have one person who lives nearby whom I consider close outside of family.

Recently, I spent some time in the hospital after an incident that caused me to break my back and my foot. I was on Prozac and suffering delusions and auditory hallucinations during a visit with the friend I mentioned above, ran off on my own, and ended up jumping (not with intent to harm myself) from a considerable height.

During my stay at an in-patient mental health facility, the group therapy sessions were wonderful, to the point that I actually miss being there. The counselors stressed the importance of having a support group, but with no general mental health support groups in my area, I decided to see if an online forum could offer a similar environment.

This is my first time seeking a deeper connection with people online, and I hope to be a positive influence in the community.

Thanks for your time!

Hiya and :welcome: to the forum. You have been through it haven't you? I hope you find your way around the forum and find somewhere you relate to best. I also have suffered from hallucinations and know how distressing they can be. Mine just wanted me to harm myself.

Mayflower7 and calypso, thank you both!

Yes, it seems I have been through a lot. I tend to play down the importance of my issues, which makes it awkward to talk about them here, but I decided I am doing this for myself.

I am hoping the hallucinations were just brought on by taking the wrong drug for me, and will not continue. So far, it has been a one-off experience, and I'm no longer on Prozac.
