Re: My Girlfriend is pushing me away

I think she is lucky to have such a patient and understanding person in her life. Sorry to hear that things didn't work out with the relationship and I hope you will have a good friendship.

Re: Some hope

I have a crisis line I can ring 24/7 and even if I don't use it for weeks and weeks it helps to know that if things get to a certain point then I can just ring them and someone else will help me out for a short while. I think those things are so important for people who struggle like we do. I say to...

Re: Amaya

Thanks guys. I think doing the scuba diving really helped. The last time I went the teacher was really rude and impatient towards me and I was really anxious to go back. Last night it was a different teacher and he was so clear with his explanations and patient, I really learnt things and really enj...

Re: Mindfulness

I think you can make a focus on any one of your senses a mindfulness exercise. If you pay attention in the moment to the sensual experience that you are having. You could use your breath alongside the music in order to anchor yourself in the present moment. Or use the music and the experience of the...

Re: unsure

Thanks that is really good to hear. I am very happy that it helped you in this way. Not sure I want to take on anything from my mother though haha that kinda put me off it.

Re: Bipolar boyfriend lies

I think the issues you are having with him aren't directly to do with him having bipolar. It sounds like there is something more going on with him. Is he already in contact with a mental health team? If so, perhaps you can tell him that his behaviour is having a significant impact on you and suggest...

Re: Amaya

Day 3 of using my sofa in the living room. Still feeling weird and really low. At least I have somewhere to go later today and people to see. A friend here I haven't seen in a long time invited me over. I don't really feel well enough to go. I woke up at 0500h with a migraine and I feel weak and sha...
