Post of The Month

Esme17 is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey. Hope you are doing okay?

I completely understand what you mean about feeling low mainly at night. like you said, It is probably because you have nothing else you need to be doing then and so have more time to think. Is there anything you could do that makes you feel slightly happier during this time (watch a film, read etc..)?

Do you know what is making you feel this way? I know you mentioned losing your nan which must have been really hard for you and Iím very sorry to hear that!

Iím not too sure what would be best for you to do in the situation but i would say it would be best to speak to someone like your gp because they could tell you for sure if it does need looking into more and even if it didnít, it would put your mind at rest a bit? I know how hard it can be seeing someone though so just make sure you do what feels right for you.

Remember you can also always come to the board to get support and to chats as well.

Let us know how things go? Iím sorry if this didnít help at all, I think I rambled a bit but I tried...

    I've had a spam email. Normally i have email notifications on for PM. A few weeks ago i had a spam email. No idea what this means but when i first saw it i had already seen the message. Has anyone else had this before?

    Thanks for flagging this with us Abi. What did the spam email say, exactly? Could you copy it into this thread or into a PM for us?

          Cheers Abi - I've just seen the PM. It looks like this might be a from back when we tested Discord. Seems genuine.

          Because of the link we sent out, your email inbox might have marked it as spam when it wasn't. They do that sometimes to protect against harmful links. Sometimes things that aren't spam get caught up in the filter.

                    Sooo... this was actually us testing a new version of the boards. We had no idea you guys would get notifications for our test posts! We'll put an announcement up about this soon, but the boards URL will be changing. More on that to come, but in the meantime you can ignore any notifications for threads that start with the URL 'themix.org.uk/communities/forum'.

                            Hey Abi,

                            Just an update here - we've looked into this but we're not sure what's caused it. Apologies that we don't have a better answer! If it happens again though, do let us know.
