    hi, so I feel pathetic for posting this.. but I'm really struggling with my mental health right now and I have no friends and no one to talk to.

    I thought I'd try my chances of someone just wanting to have a chat about something, the weather, the news, anything.

    Sorry if not appropriate x

    It's perfectly appropriate :)

    It's one of those things this forum is usually good at. Unfortunately, you've chosen a time when not many are online.

    I think I may be going out very shortly too, I can't seem to stay in for long when the weather is like this :D
    Hope someone else wants a chat.

    Sorry to hear you are struggling. Any particular reason why?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Sorry you are having a difficult time - has something happened recently to upset you?

    I struggle with anxiety and bpd and today's just one of those days I guess. I can't work and sometimes it just gets abit lonely!

    Thanks for replying even if you are going out! I hope you have a nice evening :) xx

    Hi Faye, welcome to PF. I understand how it can be sometimes.
    Who's the little cutie in your avatar?

    I'm sorry you are having a bad day Faye, it's shit when you are down and stuck at home with no distractions, so I presume you have a cat/kitten from your avatar?

    Thanks for the replies guys, yeah we have a little kitten called jasper, we've had him a month now! he's such a cutie and so tiny! Looks like he's wearing a tuxedo and socks!! :D

    It's frustrating being stuck in, and makes your mind go into overdrive doesn't it?

    What pets do you guys have?

    It helps us all to talk and there is usually someone on here at any given hour - although it's a UK forum, there are lots of members from around the globe! :)

    If General Chat is quiet, give Cat Chat or Dog Chat a look - they are usually busy.

    It's sunny here in Essex, which certainly helps to lift the mood!

    Any more Jasper pics? Even though I'm more of a dog person I can't resist a little kitten.
    I have an oldie ginger cat (called Ginge - how imaginative) and two dogs, Gelert and Gracie. I also keep fancy mice.
    Re: being stuck indoors, do you have Netflix? It's been a great distraction for me many a time and it's only £5.99 a month. Better than most of the rubbish on telly :Cat

    It's quite grey here with a cool wind , we live in a windy spot in Nottinghamshire. I took my 2 little dogs out for a walk around lunch time but they are both a bit precious and fair-weather walkers ! You can see them in my avatar , I have a 17 yr old cat as well who lives under the kitchen table !
    I'm retired, hubby stil works , so a lot of the time it's me and my 3 pets but they are wonderful company.
    Please don't ever feel alone , this is a fantastic forum for support and I'm usually around till midnight ( addicted):rolleyes:

    I have a rescued lurcher called Jack. He is Greyhound x Saluki and is currently snoozing next to me on the sofa!

    He is exhausted after having to be on "Squirrel Patrol" for longer than normal as I've had the doors open while I've been pottering in the garden. He hates squirrels! ;)

    I miss having cats, having lost mine to old age a few years back now, but there is no way I could have any now that I have Jack ;)

    I've just spent a bit of time in Sheffield as my brother died suddenly a few weeks ago, used to live there too .
    No recent photos of my puss but will try and get one later.

    He's 8 now. The last 5 years since getting him, have flown by. Can't imagine life without him now! ;)

    I spend quite a lot of time on my own now and he is my constant companion :)

    He is such an easy, laid back dog but is great company, even though he sleeps most of the time! :)
