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."

    I feel really silly but when it comes to one to one chat i always feel like my problem isn't huge enough?
    even when it comes to people or family i suppress my troubles because i feel like college, or any of my other problems aren't like major and people could be doing more important stuff oops

    Hi Lane,

    I just wanted to say that it is normal to wonder if you are bothering people with your problems, a lot of people feel this way. Something I like to remember is that there is always going to be someone who is "worse off" than you but that doesn't mean that your problems are not worth talking about. You would never tell someone you don't want to hear their good news because someone else has it better, so the same should apply to problems. If it is bothering you then it is important. Your friends and family care about you and would want to be there for you, I'm sure.

    Take care

            Hi Lane

            I think if it's even a problem for you that is a big issue. Looking back on things I thought were massive problems, i think aren't so big now. But was at the time and doesn't really matter how big or small it is. If it's a problem for you than it matters . So dont feel bad about it. If that makes sense
            I dont expect anything - to just end up disappointed. But i do not have zero hope for the future cause that has only dragged me down & brung negativity. I will just not predict the future

              Thanks you guys! i didn't use the chat but i did ramble for hours to someone i knew from work over a coffee and although i didn't solve my problems i do feel a heck of a lot better x


              (Okay it was like 2 coffees and 1 hot chocolate rather than just 1 but still )
