    Hello my name is chloe and i have anxiety and depression. I see a therapist but it has been a while and i am on school holidays so I'm home alone a lot. I have just recently started taking medication and i don't believe it is working. I feel lonely and bored and could use a friend

    Hi Chloe

    Welcome, it is so fantastic that you have found yourself here reaching out for some support and someone to talk to. You can share as much as you need to and want to here, you are in a safe space and we care.

    School holidays is tricky, while you are away from your usual routine and away from your friends and sometimes feeling bored and this can lead the mind to dark places, but it is so great you have come to chat.

    I am not sure if you know about Kids helpLine but they are on 1800 55 1800 and are so very wonderful and sometimes it helps to talk rather than type, so please reach out to them too if you need some extra help.

    What sort of things to you like to do with your day? I went to the beach today but was there for about 2 minutes and was essentially blown away...not a great beach day. Do you have some things you like to do as hobbies?

    Great to chat to you Chloe and we are here for you if you would like to chat some more.

    Huge hugs

    Sarah xx
