07/30/2021 - Not doing so well right now.
Recently I've been having a lot of breakdowns and I really need somebody to talk to. I think that my mother is manipulating me and she wont give me any sort of help for my issues like a therapist. I just really need somebody to talk to but I'm not in any sort of rush. Thank you.
hey there ! i'm sorry you're going through that, i know how rough breakdowns can get. I'm super happy that you are trying to access therapy resources, even just reaching out like that is amazing ! Here's a link to our website, it'll show you a list of resources for counseling. There's also a 'topics' sidebar so you can choose resources based on your needs ! https://ccteentalk.clark.wa.gov/resources/category/counseling i'm glad you reached out to us, we love hearing from you !! my name is Monika, i'm here every friday from 4-7 p.m. we're open mondays-thursdays 4-9 p.m, and fridays 4-7. You can call us at 360-397-2428, and you can text us at 360-984-0936. (yeah we have 2 different numbers for texting/calling, it's a little confusing sorry !) I hope you can get the help you need, I'd love to hear from you to see how everything turns out and how you're doing !! stay safe, i hope you had a great weekend !
Hi! That sounds really frustrating. I'm glad you decided to reach out, that was a big step in the right direction on your part. I've actually been in a similar boat myself lately. It's helped me a bit to keep busy with things I'm passionate about. It doesn't fix everything, but it helps. I hope your situation gets better! <3
Hey :) i so understand where you are coming from and yeah breakdowns suck :( sometimes therapy is a great options and other times it’s a pretty expensive thing. of course us here at teen talk aren’t certified therapists but we are here to be there for you. we are more than happy to help you think of ways to help your situation and to be able to hear you out whenever you want someone to listen. we would love to hear from you again and help you :)))) sending lots of hugs!!!
Hey! I am so glad you messaged us :) It can be really hard when you're going through a lot and don't feel like you're getting the support you need. I think it is pretty brave to be reaching out for help when you need it and that you are interested in seeing a therapist. What has been on your mind lately that has been leading to having breakdowns? Sometimes life is just a lot in general but I'd love to talk more about what's been going on. And why do you feel like your mom is manipulating you? Anyway, I look forward to hearing back and I am sorry you're going through this.
Hi! Thanks for reaching out. I'm sorry this is something you have to go through, you can always call us at (360) 397-2428 or text us at (360) 984-0936, we'd love to talk! (We're open 4-9 Mon-thurs, 4-7 friday) But if you were looking for more in person support maybe you have a close friend, another family member, or someone at school, like a counselor or teacher, you can talk to and your mom won't be the wiser. I really hope you get things worked out, you've got this!
