Hi


Recommended Posts

hi everybody, this is very new to me, although what happened to me happened a long time ago it is recently really effecting me, i had blocked it out for so long and egnored it as part of life but i've been really ill lately and things just really got on top of me, i confided in my manager at work who is also a very good friend which made me feel a lot better because i finally had someone to talk to and someone who also understood the reasons for me being the way i am, she encouraged to me to give counselling another go which i am, i am waiting for my first appoinment in a week and a half, but i didn't think that reopening this part of my life would effect me the way it has and to be honest i don't think i like the way it has, i've never really been a big drinker but lately have been drinking on the weekend, but on Friday one of my other friends in work asked me to go out with her for a drink and i said yes because i really wanted to do it but when it came to it i just couldn't, i started to freak out and panic and when i talked to my manager/friend again she told me not to go if it was making me feel that way so i didn't but i felt so bad because my other friend just didn't understand what was happening, it really made me feel depressed and i just hated myself and was so angry but last nite i was still feeling really down and decided to hide all my feeling with alcohol which i thought was a good idea but it wasn't it just made me feel worse actually, my friend sounded concerned when she knew what i was doing because she said i could start to think that this was the only way that i could feel better and i dont want that, so here i am, seeing if this will help, i can only give it a go right.

thank-you for listening
