    I can't access Facebook at the minute and I need some words of encouragement/reassurance.

    I've just been beaten senseles in a random attack and want to know that I have friends that I can rely on, or at least talk to. I'm really shaken up, have no credit to text or call anyone and need some reassurance that I'm not just a target for bullying scum!

    Sorry for being extremely off topic and sorry if I coome across needy but I ned to know that the world doesn't hate me so if anybody wants to be nice then I will be extremely grateful!

    And again sorry if I come across as needy.

    Edit:- sorry for any spelling or grammar mistakes, still quite shaky

    You are among friends and we care about you very much, Brum.

    Let us know how you are doing.

    I wish that I had the capacity to round up a posse and apprehend your attacker. Hopefully your local law enforcement can do that.

    Hi Brum,
    Thank you for your honesty, you are defiantly among friends here.

    What a terrifying experience, I cannot imagine. Have you been to a doctor? Police?

    You are in my thoughts, please keep us frequently up to date on your progress.

    That is awful! When I first read it I thought your Facebook was hacked as part of an online attack. But then I reread it and see that it is an actual, physical assault! Having never been through that myself, I cannot imagine what it must be like. I am sure the psychological trauma is as bad as the physical trauma.

    Yes you are among friends and feel free to vent any time.

    no need to feel sorry for coming on here with this. I'm sure everyone wishes you well.

    Don't let the lower forms of human life in this world make you feel bad about yourself.

    Sorry to hear, I hope you feel better soon (if you need a laugh, just type funny cat pictures into Google!).

    What an awful thing. You must be in shock and feeling terribly vulnerable. They have bloodied you, yes, but they have also damaged your sense of being safe in the world and that too needs healing. But the bullies are not the only people out there and here you have found friends who share your passion and appreciate what you have to share. I hope the pain of this attack passes soon.

    Just had a word with Brum who doesn't currently have internet access. He's alright. It sounds like a very violent and horrific attack and most of the injuries are facial, but the police are due to take a formal statement shortly and he's going to see a doctor in the morning.
    He's very grateful for everyone's supportive messages.

    That's shocking to read and must have been far more shocking to experience. You are very much valued as a contributor to this site so get better and get posting.

    I'm shocked and so very sorry to hear what's happened to you Brum!

    But as others have said you are among friends here and I, as with everyone else I'm sure, wish you a speedy recover and hope the bastards responsible for this are apprehended and forced to pay for their actions as soon as possible.
