"Hey Lucie,

You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate...

  • Unclear on law and police officer

    So i reported an incident about two weeks ago now. but i didn't make a statement. I have emailed the police officer on my case. And its been a week and he hasn't replied. I am very anxious to get the crime report etc over asap . I know my incident is nothing major so it would take time but im not sure how long to wait.

    I also have spoken to the police man that i have been assigned, before and he is scary, and i feel that he intimidates me. I have googled and i can't find out my rights on if i can ask for a different officer.

    any advice or tips on this / taking my mind off this would be brilliant
    many thanks

        Hey Turtle,

        Just wondering if you've had any progress with this? How're you feeling?

        Also, the Citizens' Advice Bureau can offer free legal advice and information if you need it.
        Taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself.

          I spoke to the police officer i am gonna make a statement in a few days. I didnt have the courage to ask if i could talk to another person. But my friend's going to come with me :D so hopefully it will be ok.
          Thanks ! i will have a look.
          have a nice week

            Hi turtle, as with anything if your unsure and feel like you could explain your situation better to another officer i cant see why that would be a problem.Always best to take someone else with you aswell hope it all goes well for you iam sure it will
            If its not broken take it to pieces so you know how it works for when it does

              Hi thanks for replying.
              I am not to sure right now where things are at or if i want them to continue. the law always seem to be so hard on people when bad things happen.
