to call me back and no one rang all day. You know when you feel so low you just think there is an opportunity to be alone and do something drastic. It wouldn’t take too long. That shows my mind still holds some form of strength and hope or I would just do it instead of telling it on the forum.
stay strong Bridget Jones is free. I kept calling the helpline number and not leaving a message but when I did, I think a lady got back to me the next day – it felt like such a long time. I was calling lots of elplines but most of the lines were too busy or call back later. I felt so scared and overwhelmed it was either end me or end this with police.
All I’m saying is that someone will be get back you and it feels like forever when you are waiting.
Do not give up Bridget. Keep ringing them. I hope you got someone on the phone today.
I too get easily frustrated with these lines. It feels as if nobody cares and you are all alone.
Keep posting here and we will answer you and listen to you. Maybe we can also help with some little ideas.
