Hello everyone.

 

I’m new to the board. I found it looking for some support tonight because my anxiety and depression have been getting steadily worse since year 12 finished about a month and a half ago. Up to now I’ve had a few choice people I could rely on, even if they didn’t exactly know the score. One of my best mates leaves for Europe the day before my birthday this month for a month. Another close friend has just left for a round Australia trip for a year. And my brother is currently overseas and out of reach.

 

All year I’ve been able to cope because of school getting me out of the house and away from my parents for eight or nine hours a day, and my mentor at school helped a huge amount as well. I’m not ready to get into specifics yet, just that now I’ve lost all of this support, I really need some, and I didn’t know where else to go.

 

I hope you’re all having a safe Christmas,


Jordan

Hi Jordan,

Welcome to Healingwell, you have made a good choice in joining us. I only joined in Nov and i know how daunting it can be. There are a lot of good people here who are always willing to listen to you, you don't have to share anything you don't want to, but i found
reading all the posts good for me, now i know i'm not alone in this.

It is always hard when people close to you leave and i can vouch for that as my hubby left me and my 2 sons in March this year. So as you can imagine i'm not looking foward to christmas but i will have to for my kids sake.

Well i hope this finds you well, take care, Gillian

Thank you all for your kind words. I’m still not ready to talk about what’s bothering me. I have been reading the rules again and I thought that I would share some good news with you, because it’s never a good idea to focus on the negative. I recently received my ENTER, a score which is calculated from a number of assessments and exam’s I completed over my year 12 school year. I received a much higher ENTER then I was expecting, and am able to get into my course at the best University at Victoria.

It’s an opportunity that I’m not taking for granted, and am very grateful for.

Thank you all again, it's nice to know that people care.

Merry Christmas.

Jordan

Hi Jordan,

I'm glad you found this forum. I have been going through a rough time these past couple months and this place has been a real support for me. People here are very caring.

I understand needing to go out of the house. Do you like to take walks? That's what I do. Or do you have any parks nearby? It can be good to just sit in peaceful surroundings and take in the fresh air and colors to get some more peaceful feelings going on.

That is excellent news about your grade scores. Way to go!!! It is a huge deal that you can still see the good things even though you're walking through the difficulties of depression/anxiety I think you said. So that is a huge plus. I also try to focus on the positive things, but when I need to vent or a just someone to listen, I think this is a very good place for that.

All the best to you,
-mb

Hello all.

Well it’s that time of year again. I’m guessing that Christmas can be a bad time for a lot of people with depression. I’ve been feeling pretty low of late. What’s worse is that my brother isn’t here, and he has for a long time been my unknowing defender from the rest of my family. I have two friends in crisis at the moment, and I have no idea how to support them and keep myself afloat at the same time. My sister left the country for a year today, which is good and bad. Good because she’s the instigator of a lot of yelling and verbal bashings of me, but bad because that means that some of my parents’ nastiness is sidetracked onto her, and now I’m going to be getting the full blast.

I already have because I didn’t cry at the airport. Which seems ridiculous to me. I can’t help the fact that I was upset when my brother left and not her, since he has shown me nothing but love and protection my whole life, and she none of either.

I’m sorry, I know these don’t even compare to issues that other people here are having at the moment, but it’s all adding up and getting to me at the moment and I just needed to get it out. Yesterday was just a horrible day, and it’s getting worse.

I hope you all had good respective Christmas’, or a good day anyway, if you’re of a different religion.

Jordan.

Jordan,

I think your issues are more than serious enough. I come from a dysfunctional home so I know exactly where you're coming from. Better days are coming honey, you just hang in there. Soon you'll be going off to school. Congratulations on your ENTER score. What I did when I was in your situation was this, I worked as many part time jobs as I could. I didn't have much of a social life, but it sure got me out of the house with a respectable excuse so my parents couldn't pick on me. Making money also uplifts your spirits too. Hopefully along the way, you'll make some new friends. My heart goes out to you.

Thank you both for the support - I'm sorry I started a new post. I thought that I was supposed to since ... well actually I'm not entirely sure why, but I did.

Thank you both.
