Help for Jo
Listen to the audio
Yesterday, I found a time when my partner wasn’t around, took some deep breathes and I called an organisation my friend told me about. The call went to voicemail so I left a message asking for someone to call me back after 3pm – that’s when I finish work. At 1pm, I got a call from a private number – I hate private numbers.
I speak with a support worker called Susan. We agree to meet up this morning in a place near me that I feel comfortable with. I didn’t want her to come to my house as my partner doesn’t know about this yet.
Susan seems kind and really listens to me. She also knows a lot about where to go to get help and together we begin to make a plan to get my life back on track. I already feel much more positive.
One thing did worry me though, Susan said the support she can offer is “time-limited”, whatever that means.
