No, I'm Not OK, R U?

Will I always be angry about it?

Will I always feel that it was my fault?

Will I always feel that I must justify myself?

Will it always hurt this much?

Will it get better?

Will I always feel that people don't believe me?

I'm not OK.  But I will be.  Hopefully.

I've been wanting to write a post about R U OK? Day ever since I heard about it but I couldn't find the words until now.

It took me a long time to realise I wasn't OK and for me to seek help.  I'm nowhere near 'cured' and maybe I never will be, but I don't like to think about what would have happened if I hadn't got help.  I've written several posts about this and you can find them by clicking here.

R U OK? Day is next week, Thursday September 15th.  If there is someone in your life who you think isn't OK, don't wait until then, ask them now.  If they say they are ok, but your gut tells you otherwise, please keep asking.  If U R the one who is NOT OK, click on the yellow button above and get yourself some help.



  1. I hope each day gets better for you Jo and that you've got continual support to get you through.

    So glad you're speaking about it and how you are too.

  2. Jo, I'm so sorry for you you went through and are continuing to go through. I don't know if you read about it, but I was diagnosed with PTSD earlier this year. I had a breakdown of sorts and had to take several months off work, on medical disability. I can't say I know what you've been through, but I understand the repercussions of trauma and fear. I'm so glad you are with a man who is loving and gentle. That means the world. I hope you can continue to heal. I hope we all do. Much love to you, my friend. x

  3. Am sorry you're not feeling ok. I am new here so don't know your story (off to click on that link now).

    I'm glad you've been able to write about it.

  4. Jo this is a great website and a fantastic event. Thanks so much for writing about it.
