I hear that people who ask for help are mostly ignored. That is this non caring society.

Mum says she is ok but if you scratch below the surface that is not true.

Once PALs told me not to complain.

That I need to learn how to tone down the stress and tension. I need to relax and switch off. I'm gonna have to learn to be strict with myself and prioritise this. I feel so agitated and tensed up so often. The tension fizzes in my brain and elsewhere physically. As well as emotionally. I need strategies to calm my thoughts. More mindfulness, need to make myself do it, to calm myself down.

True, it can be pretty harsh and uncaring. Not wholly though, a lot of people do care.

Sorry to hear that.

That's ridiculous and out of order. That's what they're there for! I once had the Samaritans fall asleep on me, it was hard not to take it personally :rolleyes:

Why is it the people who are supposed to love me deliberately hurt me and play mind games :cry:

Feeling really depressed today. I’m trying to do some decorating to distract me but keep stopping after 15 minutes . It all seems a bit too much today.

Little bit fragile today. Noisy head giving me the usual critical comments. It's manageable just annoying.

I'm thinking that I don't know how what i'm feeling is going to get any better.
Having suicidal thoughts. They are just thoughts and not plans but i'm still sick of it and i'm still suffering.

I sometimes worry that the gap between reality and my thoughts is getting too big.

Coercive control and domestic violence. It is the worst kind because it leaves no bruises. But, could lead to a dangerous situation. I would like me and my child to find a way out of this.

I’m sorry that your in a bad situation . Do you have any friends/family that you could stay with. I know it’s not easy but you and your child would be much happier on your own. I was in a violent controlling situation for 12 years and it was affecting my children. When he left I couldn’t have been happier. I just wish I’d been brave enough to leave years ago. But every year that went by I became more submissive and accepting of his behaviour.
If your in the uk there are refuges that you can go to. They may not be the nicest of places but at least you’d be safe.
Take care
