It's not something I've experienced really in any large capacity apart from the odd bad day here and there.
It is something though that Gaireans have spoke about and shared their experiences here.
It's something too that some of my friends here have experienced and continue to experience and if writing some words down here where other Gaireans offer some compassion and love helps then I hope this thread continues
I'm sure this post can be updated for where to go for help but here's what I can think of now. Samaritans
... http://www.samaritans.org/talk_to_someone/find_my_local_branch/ir etc ... Gay Switchboard http://www.gayswitchboard.ie/
There can be huge support here on Gaire too
Terrific to post these.
Have a friend in Cork going through a tough time after a break-up. Told him to check the threads on here to see some links to gay friendly services he might look into, on account of getting no response for several days from a counselor a friend had recommended to him, except a voicemail referal to another counselor (who never called back...). I'm appalled, as even he said "What if I'd been calling from a cliffside?!"
I hope everyone will chuck aside fear and seek help (and re-seek it if need be) in a moment of crisis. There are people who care.
