Stuck on a ledge

(13 Posts)

Metaphorically speaking.

I feel like I'm climbing a mountain and I'm stuck on a ledge. I can't move up or down sad

I can stay here forever but surely it's ok to just sit here for a while.

No reply needed - I just had to get this out

Thank you flowers

DH has come to sit with me and is holding my hand

Of course it's ok to stay on your ledge, as long as you're safe.

Rudymentary Fri 19-Aug-16 11:07:30

I meant to say that I can't stay here forever.

I'm safe thank you x

Hope you have plenty of support......I am in a living hell quite literally at the moment and know how you feel....I am scared, lonely and don't see the point of just existing......take care, be careful, try mindfulness....flowers

I'm sorry you're in a living hell forever flowers

Not much rl support no. I had help to my ledge but now it's gone.
I just need to know it's ok to stay here for a while whilst I decide which route to take.

Oh Rudy and Forever I wish i could be there for you in RL, I really do.

Yes, it is ok to just sit there for as long as you like, you don't have to ask for permission, you can decide whatever you want to do.

DH has booked me in for counselling.

How are you today forever?

Hello to you both on this breezy morning smile

I hope you managed to sleep last night and have found a little peace to start the day with.

Rudy your DH sounds very supportive - is the counselling something you want to do?

Thank you for responding sixties
I wasn't expecting any replies as I know MN in general hates posters who don't give full details. I don't want this thread to be about my problems - just about how in feeling.

I slept well.
I don't know if I want counselling really. DH just felt it would be useful to have someone neutral to come and sit on my ledge and listen.

My ledge is a sunny place today and despite the fact I know I can't stay here forever I'm happy here for now. Yesterday it was a dark, lonely windy place.

I'm so glad you have a sunny spot to sit at. I used to like sitting on the cliff tops by Scarborough castle. I would stay there for hours watching the gulls own the skies, whilst the waves rolled to a rhythm of their own.

As for details, that's for you alone to decide what you want to give, I'm just glad you slept and found sunshine when you woke.

And, actually, you can stay on your ledge for as long as you choose, the decisions are all yours to make, whenever, however you wish. flowers

Thank you again sixties

I'm feeling stronger and may even venture off for a look around to decide the best route but I'm beginning to realise that I don't have to make a decision and the answer will probably come to me if I give it time.
