Hi Puffin and Lisa, thank you for replying and your support it really helps. I feel a bit better today. I do try to always eat and sleep well, I have learned in the past that killing yourself over some stupid boyfriend is not the answer! I have tried to kill myself when I was a teenager, when my boyfriend cheated on me with another girl. I was so devastated, I was only 13 and it was the first romance I ever had, so it hurt a lot. Plus my parents had just got divorced then as well and I was coping with being in a single parent family which was hard. I felt very depressed and took an overdose. I regretted it as soon as I had done it, and thankfully I didn’t die or need to go to hospital. I was just vomiting and sick for a few days. I learned from this though not to ever do this again though, suicide is not the answer, no matter how bad it feels. I know in time the depression will get easier. I have also joined a music group today and met some new people to play music with which really made me feel happy and strong. I enjoyed it. It is nice to meet other people with similar interests and passions. I have read a lot about abusive relationships online and found it extremely helpful indeed. I do have so many questions and doing some research on the topic is really helpful to me. I used to go to (location removed by moderator) Mind to a domestic violence support group when I was not working, but I have not found anything to go to in person at the moment because I work full time Monday to Friday and nothing seems to be on during other times. Does anyone know if there’s any counselling or support groups in the evenings or weekends in (location removed by moderator) area? Thank you again for your help and support. All the best, love Mardi. xx
