Getting help soon

So, after I go see my family for my Grammies celebration of life, I might be checking myself into a hospital… I’ve been thinking about that and kms so I think the first is a better option. my landlord/friend has also said he’s concerned and has thought about having me go.

getting help is also a great step!
I hope it can bring you some relief and some rest for your brain.

You’re loved and you matter.

Hey @whyorwhynot,

This is such a brave and healthy step to consider, especially if you feel unsafe lately. I want you to know that we are so very proud of you here for considering the options that are available for you and for addressing your needs just as they are. Being in a safe space, receiving support that is available is always the best option. You are worthy of so much love, care, time and healing. I’m rooting for you. :hrtlegolove:

I’m just terrified that the decisions I’m making are going to end up having me alone.

That is quite a fair thing to be scared of as there can be a lot of stigma around the idea of receiving professional help. You can be sure that this community right here is going to leave and you will always have a safety net at least here.

Is anyone among your relatives against the idea of checking yourself into a hospital? Anything that triggers or feeds this fear of ending up alone?

just checking in and seeing how you’re going. I hope that you’ve been able to find the support you deserve. It’s really brave of you to be open to the idea of getting that help and being able to recognise that you’re at the point you need it. It’s not always an easy thing to do, but you should be so proud of yourself. It sounds like you’re surrounded by some good friends and family. I hope you know that it doesn’t mean you have to be alone and face everything alone. I hope it actually lifts a burden for you and you feel a bit more free to enjoy being with others and enjoy your life.

Hello there,

I hope all is well with you. How did the celebration of life go? I want you to know that it is okay to be afraid at times. Fear is a valid emotion, just like joy or peace. I hope that you can have peace knowing that you have people in your corner to back you up & support you through all of these decisions. It sounds like you won’t be alone in the end.

You are important. You are valid. You are enough. You are strong. You matter.

whyorwhynot, how are you holding up? I’m so very sorry for your loss. It can be tough when we are celebrating/mourning the life of someone we love and spending time with family. How has it gone for you during this time and how are you feeling? I just want you to know that you are cared about and loved here. I truly hope to hear how you are doing.

So the celebration of life was nice and sweet, bunch of pictures and videos, apparently when my Grammie was 83 for her birthday she went skydiving. That’s just crazy and cool to know that and hearing a few stories about her, honestly I wasn’t as close to her as I was my grandma, but she lived so far away so understandable. I’m okay with her grief that I have, I mainly went to see my family… They on the other side of things weren’t so great. As for the professional help I have no idea what to do and I don’t feel like going helped but it definitely didn’t hurt much either…I just don’t know how to feel about the things that did happen.
