    i know what you mean, just last night i called a mental health support line and totally broke down - with just this same question, why are things always so bad and why cant i move on from it. its a valid question to ask them!

    Because there's no such thing.

    Anyway, I hope you get support and help from this assessment. Just wanted to respond and let you know I read your question and have asked it myself. It's a journey that takes time unfortunately.

    I am so sorry. "the path to healing is not linear." It will take setbacks, standing still, etc...never pretty. I get these massive waves of sadness just out of nowhere. I start to sob and don't want to do anything else. I think it's amazing that you recognize this and are doing something about it! That is so good! Keep looking out for yourself...hugs to you.

    Take some nice slow deep breath. You are moving forward my friend. It just takes time, but I know you have the strength to get there. Sending support. ( small :hug: ) I know you don't like big ones :)

    You are not a failure.
    You are working hard.
    You are valued.
    Your life matters.
    Keep telling yourself these things.
    You are not a failure.
    Please let us know how the assessment goes.

    I have to be reminded, sometimes; You have PTSD. Oh. Right. That.

    @Friday This made me laugh. I do that all the time.

    @trying2movefwd be easy on yourself. I know it's hard, but you are doing the right thing in getting an assessment right now.

    ((hugs))
