I started using it at a time of crisis, which included lots of thoughts of suicide. I was finding it difficult to manage my distress and still keep a responsible position at work; I feared that I could end up on long term sick or have to give up work. Using the site has helped me to reduce anxiety, stress and feelings of isolation. It has enabled me to feel connected to others who have emotional issues and has given me an opportunity to be part of a helping community. I believe it has also supported me to manage my diabetes and related conditions in positive ways. I have not visited my GP for stress, anxiety or depression once since I started using BWW, nor have I taken any medication for depression related symptoms: nor have I had a day off work that reason.’ </li></ul>safe anonymous support
