When I need a boost, a kick or a hug, I log on to Spark people and holler for help! There's always a Spark friend, a team member, or sometimes a complete stranger (if there is such a thing on SP) online to offer a word of encouragement.
You can ask for help in the huddles on your teams by checking the "I need support" box. Or you can ask for a word of advice or encouragement by posting on your status. If you need a little more space to describe your situation, you can blog about it.
