Chatwee Update

Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

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

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • When you build up the courage to go do a food shop to find the shop choosen doesn't have half the stuff I came out to get. I know that's no one's fault but I'm so annoyed and wasted my time. What shop doesn't have carrots and cucumber. Gahh I'm going back to my bed

Almost collapsed at work today from low blood sugar, I couldn't walk and was shaking so much, greyscale to wake up a guest who's a medic cause they were so worried, I feel so bad, I really thought I was doing better

                  • Hahaha, so we're that short staffed at work my colleague handed in a sick line and they're forcing her to still work. Why am I still working somewhere so unhealthy? Opened the hatch from the upper floor and heard my manager Bitching about me and said colleague.. perfect!

                    • "All or nothing" attitudes, also known as "If you're not 100% for us then you are clearly 100% against us".

                      The idea that if you generally or publicly support/favour a disadvantaged cause, community, way of life, belief etc but offer a degree of critical analysis or disagreement with any part of its principles then you are instantly seen by many as being 'part of the problem', bigoted, some form of '-ist', an oppressor etc.

                      Let's start with the obvious. Many of these legitimate '-ist' types of people do try to disguise their opinions as 'genuine debate'.

                      But not all. It's as if any perceived criticism or unsupportive comment is clear evidence of a much bigger and deeper anti-whatever prejudice that totally negates any supportive words, thoughts, actions you have displayed previously.

                      Holding a partially negative or critical view of something does not automatically make you the enemy or part of the problem.

                      Feeling slightly uncomfortable about an idea, way of life, social group, community etc does not automatically make you bigoted and more importantly does not necessarily mean you want it stopped, changed or banned.

                      Neither does not actively or militantly supporting a cause make you part of problem.

                      Rant over.....and breathe.
