I’m struggling again atm and all my so called friends aren’t being very good friends! I’m not saying I’m being needy but I need someone other than my partner to talk to... any help/advice! If you’re in the bournemouth area or near Poole that’d be great!

Did something in particular trigger all of this? Or was it a bunch of stuff?

It was mainly just it all kind of hit at once but I had a consultation for counselling yesterday which didn’t help

Maybe you should go again since it was only your first time.

Hi there I came from Bournemouth but moved to Australia years ago. Some days just suck and then a day comes round and it’s better even great. Brings me hope for the future. What sort of things are you dealing with, home situation or work or just everything??? Such a great forum here to meet others and realize we are not alone in this x x love and blessings

Yea sometime counseling, though it’s good can stir up things too like regret and sadness etc sending hugs x x

I know the feeling. My partner died last year and I have had minimal support from many friends. I actually found more support from more casual acquaintances who became friends and someone with serious mental health problems.

See I’ve noticed that too! By talking to people on here I’ve felt more 100% then I have talking to friends
