Does anyone know of a helpline or something for when you just need to talk about this horrible situation we''re all in? Not practical advice, just a friendly ear?

I don''t want to bother the Samaritans, I''m sure there are far more important things for them to deal with. But there is just nobody I can pick up the phone to and I''m feeling so alone and very down.

Hi OliveOyl, visit your GP tomorrow tell them how you feel, they will help and redirect you to the services or counsellors are accessible on NHS but there is usually a wait list, or privately, I find my counsellor sessions really beneficial, but if you want to talk now then p.m me and we can have a chat. don''t go through this alone xxxxx

You can also do what I did when I felt I didn''t want to bother anyone - type how you feel in a word document. It helps to get it out, and when you read it later it helps to get some perspective.

I also went to a counsellor - I could talk to her about things I couldn''t discuss with family and friends.

I do hope you feel better soon.

I can only sympathise with you. I understand how hard it is. I went and found a counsellor that I was happy to talk to. I don''t talk well to people I don''t know.

As previously adviced please go and see your GP and talk to them, I found this really useful.

Talking on here also supported me. I have up and down days, scared for the future and what it will bring.

You are not alone in this so any of us are going through it to.

You take care of yourself x

Dear olive,
you would not be bothering the samaritans, that is what they are there for, people who need to talk , they will not be able to give you any answers but will listen and help, I hope to be joining them soon and people like us who have been through such a life changing experience and find it hard to cope is why they are there , so give them a call, do not think what you are going through does not seem important enough. you take care. xxxx

So sorry you are feeling down - weekends are always the worst - definitely go and see your doctor tomorrow, just talking to him/her will help you. Thinking of you and hope you OK.

Take care

Hi Olive

Sorry you feel down at the moment, think we can all understand how you feel, been there got the t shirt etc...

Your doctor will be able to advise of any counsellors etc in your area, but if you really need to speak to someone the samaritans would be good, they wont think you''re wasting their time, they are there to help.

When I felt really bad it helped to go into the chatroom on wiki, always a friend there.

Take care xx
