Just wanted to know. Why does it matter? Why are you hiding from me?

You are a woman and it’s ok

Thetealharp
Thetealharp in reply to Hidden

It matters because of what I am comfortable sharing. And I'm not hiding from you, as I said I has to go and do my meds.

Yes I know but why?

Hidden in reply to Hidden

You don’t know me

Thetealharp
Thetealharp in reply to Hidden

Because you ask for support and you are on a support network.

What’s your story?

Thetealharp
Thetealharp in reply to Hidden

Its very long and complicated and involves years of trying different things and trying to survive. I have moderate to high support needs. In terms of mental health I have been though the mental health system for years now.

Hidden in reply to Thetealharp

Why can’t you tell me? I’m supposed to trust you

Thetealharp
Thetealharp in reply to Hidden

I don't know what you want me to tell you, as I will choose what Im comfortable to say. You can choose wether or not to trust me, I responded to your ask for help and it's your choice wether you would like to talk to me or not. If you cannot get support on here I would suggest contacting a helpline as there is nothing else I can do other than be willing to listen.

Your welcome ❤️❤️😄

Hi, my name's Kathy, when I'm feeling anxious I call a girlfriend who I can talk to and laugh with, like a sponsor. Hope that helps.

Hi Laharris, we are kind of at a stalemate here in helping you. And that's okay.

Just to let you know that this is a safe site and once you feel more comfortable

we are only a message away. I'm glad you are here. :) xx

I'm right here. May I help support you? x

Hidden
Hidden in reply to Agora1

Do you find life really hard?

Agora1
Agora1 in reply to Hidden

Actually I don't Laharris. I take one day at a time,.

I use Meditation and gratitude for each day given me.

I've come a long way over the years to find myself.

Now, I want to share my success through this forum. x

Hidden
Hidden in reply to Agora1

I’m not there yet. It’s admirable where you are. I may never be there

Hidden
Hidden in reply to Hidden

I can’t seem to read your post I’m doing something wrong

Agora1
Agora1 in reply to Hidden

You're doing nothing wrong. You responses are coming in clearly

Hidden
Hidden in reply to Agora1

I read your reply. I’m no where close to where you are in your life and I may never be

Agora1
Agora1 in reply to Hidden

Laharris, first of all I didn't have all the issues that you are dealing with.

Mine were severe anxiety to the point of becoming Agoraphobic for 5 years.

Medication and therapy barely pulled me through for 30 years. I kept expecting

the pills and the therapy to cure me. When the medication no longer worked, I

had to find other resources to get myself through.

Hidden
Hidden in reply to Agora1

You are strong. I’m not.

Agora1
Agora1 in reply to Hidden

This has nothing to do with being strong, believe me. I cried, I shook with fear just like anyone else. I asked myself what I was doing wrong and through researching everything I could get my hands on, I realized that I wasn't really going through the actions in going forward. I would walk into therapy and come out no better. I would pop my once a day pill and within hours was right back to square one.

Why?? The answer was because I wasn't changing anything in my life. I was looking

for that magic pill, that magic wand to get better.

Agora1
Agora1 in reply to Agora1

If you'd like I could talk with you on Personal Message or we can continue on the forum. Whatever makes you more comfortable x

Hidden
Hidden in reply to Agora1

I know there is no magic pill. I’m receiving my disability now. I’m just trying to figure out what I’m supposed to do now

Agora1
Agora1 in reply to Hidden

Unfortunately, I can only speak for Anxiety and Agoraphobia issues. I guess I've been

blessed in never having experience depression or other mental health issues.

From the Anxiety prospective, I would like to suggest reading a book by Dr. Claire Weekes' on "Hope & Help for Your Nerves" , it is also available on YouTube. Her

theory of accepting anxiety and not fighting it is what became the foundation to my success.

With Anxiety, it starts with a negative thought and if we start to fight it, it becomes stronger in our subconscious mind and ends up presenting with physical systems and

chronic behavior. Now because you have other issues being addressed at this time,

that could complicate matters. Since I am not a doctor or therapist, I can only go on my own experiences in dealing with anxiety. Are you under therapy right now? x

Hidden in reply to Agora1

Will be mid March no worries

Agora1
Agora1 in reply to Hidden

Laharris, oops...I just lost a long response that I wrote to you.

But basically I want to tell you to trust the opinions and experiences of other

on this forum. We all learn from each other as well as not feeling so alone.

I'm taking a break for dinner right now but will be back.

I'm sure others will come on to fill in all the gaps I left open to your questions.

Remember dear, we all care about each other. Talk later :) xx

Hidden in reply to Agora1

Talk later

Hidden in reply to Hidden

I don’t have messenger can I give you my phone number? I don’t do social media

Agora1
Agora1 in reply to Hidden

Hi Laharris, I'm back from dinner..

I don't do social media either. The private messenger that I'm referring

to is here on this forum. At the top of the page, you will see CHAT, click

onto that and type in my name Agora1 and you can write me privately and

I can answer you privately. x

TY Ahora🌹
