When the going gets tough...
Today I logged on to eheadspace simply because I was at work, and chatting with a counsellor online was going to be far more simple than trying to use the phone. My short chat with the counsellor was enough to just alleviate some of my mounting negative feelings for the moment.

The feeling of no one loving you...
I was 15 when all of sudden all of my 'friends' turned against me and I lost the most important girl in my life. It felt like all of the people I cared about turned on me because I was being 'me'. There wasn't a day where I didn't feel upset.

Thank You eheadspace
I just wanted to say a big thank you to eheadspace for helping me with coming out to my parents about me being bisexual. eheadspace helped me with ways that I could tell them, and in the end it payed off.

I've been having problems for 2 years now and I felt like I couldn't really talk to anyone. I didn't trust people. I found it very hard to ask for help but eheadspace made it easy and they made me feel comfortable and heard.

Steps to getting better
Although life is still stressful and things are still going wrong - it's great to know I can come online and chat to someone and get support. I find it easy because I have not actually seen this person and probably never will do.

I just want to say thank you eheadspace for listening and helping me with my depression and anxiety. It helps to get things off your chest and just to stop having thoughts that scare you. First time using this site and I personally think it is great.

It's okay to not be okay
Having friendship/relationship problems happen every year definitely took a toll on my selfesteem and mental health. I became withdrawn, isolated and depressed. I began to selfharm when I was 12; nothing too dangerous but it still wasn't a healthy habit.

Anxiety and Future Doubts
It was really great to be able to tell someone all of my issues, while feeling totally heard and validated. I was having issues with anxiety, depression and figuring out future career options, and the person that I spoke with was very attentive and made sure that I felt understood...

Sad and Confused
It's really been helping me to have someone to talk to and I am starting to feel better. I was provided with some great websites and advice and I haven't recovered yet but I feel like I'm on my way.
