    For me- like Im just going to perish and suffer forever. All hope is gone, faded away no more . Just nothing left like dont get me wrong- Im not one to make like a big bloody fuss about how Im going. But like when people feel like they just want to ramp and ramp up the pressure and continue to do so forever and ever amen. Like neverending, then there is no end to this surprisingly. Well not really but given the last post have to make light of that somehow ahaha

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks so much for sharing some of your inner thoughts here. It sounds like there’s a lot going on and that you’re feeling perhaps overwhelmed and very drained...

    The mounting pressures that you described must be very emotionally taxing...I imagine it takes a huge toll on you. I appreciate your self insight, and I detect intelligence and perhaps a self deprecating sense of humour in seem to have a lot on your mind.

    Is it okay if I ask how you have been since your opening post?

    Kindness and care,

    Hi Steve p,

    Welcome back to the forum.

    It seems like there was a lot on your mind when you first posted here. You also said that you are still struggling at the moment, so would it be okay to ask how things have been for you over the past couple of days?

    - Marie (:

    Hi Steve p,

    Welcome back. Would you like to chat more about what has been happening for you?

    Over the last month have you found some things that have helped you get through the tougher moments you have experienced?

    How do you want to move on from where? What does tomorrow look like for you from a positive angle?

    Cheers from Dools
