Unhappy I really do not know what to do anymore? - February 22nd 2018, 01:28 AM

I am going through things that are complex and I am asking for help and support but there isn't anything they can do.

I fled family psychological abuse and came to a women's shelter. It's all good until you ask for support and they stare at you asking what they can do.

I ask them for help to transition out of the abuse as it's impacted me greatly. They simply tell me to talk to my counselor. That wasn't what I even asked them. I need support as I feel I am still in the abuse. Expressing I am scared. Trying to put words on it. They don't do anything.

I am trapped here. I keep expressing myself and nothing is ever done. They don't care and I am fed up. I am so fed up with things I'm at a point where I don't care if I throw a cup because nobody is listening to me.

I went and spoke to them about how others are treating me. They don't care. They won't do anything. I want them to do more. I am struggling more and more. I can't cope. People cough and sneeze on you. Grab things from your hands. Demand me to dump the contents of what's in my cup in another as it's their cup. Bullying me. Being intrusive and wanting to know what I am going to do in the washroom while I wait for it to be available. How they yell at one another which triggers me into fear and i am tense.

The staff don't care. They won't do anything to help.

The way they phrase things it's like I ended up here and now I need to get myself out of the mess. This shelter isn't designed for me. The ones i need to be at won't accept me cause i am at one already. The way they respond sounds like it's my fault. So now I am convinced it's all my fault.

I have reached my threshold.i have tried. I have expressed. I am now trapped. I was trapped where I was before coming here. I have no idea what I am suppose to do. I feel like I'll just stay in the shadows and pretend I don't belong or i am here. I doubt anyone would actually notice me not eating or asking for meds.

I just have no idea what else I am suppose to do or should do. I don't feel listened to. I am spiralling downwards and they don't see it.

I don't even know what I am asking. Maybe there is something and I haven't thought about it or i am just venting about my sorry pathetic life.

Have questions or would like to chat send me a PM

How are things today?

It's more than okay to just vent about things. It must be really hard fleeing from abuse, only to find yourself in a shelter where you feel you are listened to and aren't getting your needs met.

I hope that you can tell the individuals who are grabbing things from you, overall yelling and being intrusive that you don't appreciate them doing these things and let them know that you would prefer not to be intruded on, or if they must, ask first rather than taking things from you.

Sometimes people just don't get how to listen, and this can be frustrating to deal with. But you still deserve support, so I hope you are able to find someone at the shelter who can give you what you need!
