Getting back your health and peace is not easy.People don't know how to be there for you,you can tell them how down or depressed you are,they may know all that you have bedn through and still cant be there for you..or atleast not how you want them to be.. Honestly people expect you to get over things and you also dont want to be that friend who is always bringing the room down with sob stories..then how do we get better if we cant talk to loved ones?.. What worked for me isn't easy as ABC...I spoke about what I was going through to loved ones because talking helps,later I decided to find other ways to deal with my pain,from friends I told them what I needed,if I needed space I told them,if I needed to avoid certain topics that were a trigger I had to tell them..I refused to fake my healing and I had to tell them that..They may not know how to be there for me,but knowing what I need from then helps them too...all I am trying to say is that Sometimes you need to protect yourself and be responsible for your well-being..having a good support structure helps but if you do not have it,it's okay..you have You..and you know what you need more than anyone..work on yourself,if you need to travel alone,to write or sing your emotions,to talk to a stranger,talk to someone you know,draw,exercise or just sit in silence then Do It...at the end of the day if you can ask your self "am I doing my best to get better?" And get a Yes then you are on track..of the answer is "I can do more", then try to find out what you can do more.. I tell you there is nothing as wonderful as healing ,especially healing that you worked towards..you sit there thinking about how far you have come and get so proud of yourself because that which you thought would never pass is finally passing and you will be Okay.

@She This site is such a help. Ironically I found this site by accident. A few years ago I'd seen a string of documentaries about the health effects of animal products and was trying to go vegan, so I googled local vegan support groups, and this site came up. I slowly started reaching out to other groups and the rest is history now. :) I wish more people new about this site.
