Hi Wendles,
Thanks for asking this very important question today. I thought it was a good idea to start a thread where we can all tell everyone how we are doing.
We have a venting page but I thought it might be nice to have somewhere to just say how you feel.

Today I feel tired and not up to much :( but know tomorrow will be better :)

I don't feel the need to vent but sometimes when family ask if I'm ok I lie, like most of us in pain some days it's easier to say we're ok rather than go into details, today is one of those days.

Hopefully this thread will give anyone who is interested a place to say how they are as I think R U OK day is great but we should ask this every day!

So Wendles R U OK? And everyone else R U OK?

Jo :)

Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow 'til there's none

When I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely
I just stick out my chin and grin and say, oh

The sun will come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on
'til tomorrow, come what may!"

Hi guy's,

Thanks for starting this thread, I think this is a great idea, it also coincides this year with world suicide prevention day.

Sometimes just asking someone if they are ok is enough to stop them on that path, sometimes knowing someone cares keeps the black dog away.

Oh and today I feel sore and sorry.

Hi ,
thankfully my daughter asked me this question today and it was such a huge relief to finally say no. And the hug she gave me and the words I love you made me realise that i have been struggling to keep myself together for so lomg, but that i need more help to deal with the effects of the ongoing ptsd,depression,anxiety and pain which isnt resolving despite an recent increase in meds .i just want to be able to feel something other than this emptiness ,fear and disconnection So i made a call and thankfully got into see my physchologist tomorrow..

Hi Mrs S
I'm glad your daughter asked you and that you reached out to her :) Just shows us how R U OK can work and if we ask it often enough that we all will at some point reach out for help!

Good luck today and hope you can move forward in a positive way and that the emptiness and fear soon start to turn around and that you can reconnect with life so it can offer you something to look forward to xx

Hugs

Jo :)

I think its a great idea to ask people if they are ok on any day of the week, it may be all they need to hear to turn things around for them and also to know that someone cares about them and their wellbeing. My husband and daughter often ask me if I'm ok as I suffer depression, anxiety,OCD so somedays for me seem overwhelming but it helps to know that I've got love and support, which some people dont have sadly. So I think that was so nice that your daughter asked you if your ok she obviously cares about your wellbeing thats nice to hear.
