Break up

It has been six months since my ex ended our 1 year relationship and I can’t seem to let him go. He has blocked me from calling him. It’s a nightmare he is in my thoughts the moment I wake up.

Hi Imogen2

Good to hear from you again. It's great to hear you in a lighter mindset today- try to harness that feeling. Recognise what got you there, so you can do those things when you find you need to get yourself there again. Documentaries work wonders! So can visiting caring friends. Giving up can be a struggle, as you say- would you like me to link some resources for you to navigate through that? It's ok if you aren't ready to open up romantically again either- that just takes time and self-compassion.

Sorry to share this but I am in a bad space, missing my ex so badly that I don’t want to be here I can’t see me living without him. It’s silly as he doesn’t care about me treated me with no respect but this love just won’t die. I have tried to forget him but of course I will never for it took me 3 years to find him and when I did it was good but I blew it being obsessive and possessive.

We're so sorry to hear how much this is impacting you at the moment, Imogen2, please know that you are not alone. We would strongly encourage you to speak with a counsellor at Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467, as it sounds like you may be struggling with some intense thoughts. If at any point you become an immediate danger to yourself, this is an emergency and you should contact triple zero (000).

Thank you. My neighbour is coming over, he just rang me to ask to go out for a drink but I declined saying not wanting to be in public so he is calling in when he gets home. Thank you
