I found out that my therapist suffered a near fatal illness last week and I am very upset. I have been seeing my therapist for the last four years and have told him things that I was never able to tell anyone else. I have such trust in him and know he is truly concerned with helping me get through my issues and get better mentally. I could never imagine starting over with someone else. I am afraid that if he dosn't recover enough to continue with his practice that I will not be able to continue on with my therapy. I have real trust issues due to expierences in my past so to be able to talk so freely and honestly with someone is a true lifesaver for me. I feel very selfish in some ways, I am truly concerned about him and want more then anything for him to get better. I feel so lost with the thought of him not being here, he is such a important person in my recovery.

Please help, I have been suffering with anxiety and been depressed, I was steady as I had a good support system. I was in a realationship for two years but yesterday out of nowhere she broke up with me and now my main support system is gone. I have nobody to talk to (not even just about being anxious and all that, but nobody to talk to and no interactions.) It hurts emotionally and physically...
My form of self harm is picking at my skin. My fingers and chest especially at the moment look absolutely atrocious. Really worried people are going to notice and say something, and half the time I dont even realise I'm doing it. My skin was looking so healthy, and now I'm back to square 1. I know relapses will happen, but feel so angry and disappointed in myself.
