Hello Wilba,

I was awake when I saw your post, very, very early this morning. I had just logged off, because I had to go to bed, simply had to, so sorry I am not replying until now.

I'd like to welcome you, & please, could you tell us some more about what has you up so late?

Thanks guys sorry I can't work out how to reply to all of you

Sigh it's a long long story basically had a point in my life where I just wanted to die things fell apart with everyone I know and I feel/am totally alone then and still unfortunately one of the people I thought was a friend just wasn't and a nasty situation ended in restraining orders against them the orders ended last month the harassment has started again instantly

I can feel myself going back to that point where I just feel everyone in my family would be better off without me this would stop without me to hate they would leave the people I love alone I'm so totally exhausted but can't sleep can't stop my brain or the dreams

Hello Wilba. Are you in a safe place? That must be your first consideration.

If you need help with that, call 1800 737 732

Or in immediate danger call 000

I would hate for you to do anything that would 'let them win', & be devastating to your family. I'm sure there is a better solution.

Here for you.

hi and welcome to the forums.

I hope you will come back to share of your story. know that you are special and important to the people in this community. It would be so distressing to have to deal with the harassment again.

also, please do not feel as though you have to respond to each person individually.

there are also many places on the forums here you can go to ... read others stories, engage in the social section and play a game there. We look after each other here.

Hello Wilba, when we begin to feel this way, sometimes our friends say the strangest comments we weren't expecting that may place a wedge between us, and an intervention order needs to be taken out.

When the time for this to end comes along, it can be taken out once again, simply because they have started doing what they weren't allowed to do previously, so take out another order.

You can't have this person continually doing this because it will certainly affect you.

Hope to hear back from you.

Geoff.
