I've been supremely lucky. I have about a half a dozen friends, and my brother, who have stuck through everything in the past 15 years with me.

But I've also had to work on maintaining those relationships.

So far there’s really only been one person who’s been there for me and hasn’t left yet. I don’t know how she puts up with me but we’ve been friends for 4 years now. We talk every day , pretty much all day right now with the lockdown in place. I love her very much and she’s the only person I can say has been a true friend. Everyone else has pretty much just left me when things get hard.

Possible trigger:


it was a stranger who saved my life.
my mother/ rest of the family didn't want to know, and this woman (who I never really knew) got me help

since then, no one.

I obviously havon't seen her again (chances are I never will), I obviously don't have family who are interested, so no.... no one else

Possible trigger:

When I was young, someone literally saved my life. I did not know this person and I will never know who they are or who they have become since rescuing me. I will forever be grateful and do my best to pay forward the kindness and bravery that was shown to me.

I too have been encouraged to end my life, with both general comments from strangers and also with specific instruction. I've become a better person having learned how to battle this kind of negativity.

I'm sorry the experience with your ex-therapist was as terrible as it was. my idea of mental heath assistance is NOT the best but I know for sure that is something a professional should never even hint at. In fact, it is their sworn duty to prevent that type of situation.

RV- I hope you were able to move on without the help of this malicious person. It is possible they were trying to help, but it seems to me they were not the right person for your situation. Please don't give up. I'm glad you are here with us on PC.

thank you.

I have since stopped seeing that person (in fact moved away from the area)

still looking for the right person, wondering if therapy is at all right for me actually. 9 therapists later and I'm still wondering that... sometimes I feel that i'm beyond help

Possible trigger:


so I am far from settled and happy,

but who knows. I may click my fingers and the right person will come along

doubt it, but we're living in a strange world..

I can't believe that during the corona virus my brother didn't even facebook me to see if I was ok. Not a single word.

Useless.

I've been fortunate to come from a very close family (and one that is actually pretty functional). I also have a great husband and kids. My coworkers are troopers. My church can always be counted on. They all serve different purposes - I don't ask or expect they same things from all of them.

Professionally, I had some excellent therapists and pdocs.

Yes. A priest in my parish when I was a teen was always there for. We have been friends through the years and he helped celebrate our wedding. I am not sure if I would be here without his support.
