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."

  • Post of the Month - July

    Hey everyone,

    Congratulations to Jellyelephant who was June's post of the month winner! You can see her post featured as an announcement on the homepage of the discussion boards

    Here's July's Post of the Month nominations:

    AzathKelara's thread 'Asexuality (contains sex talk)'

    Originally posted by AzathKelara
    So hey i'm asexual, and y'know, it took me yeeeears to realise that. I think i was 15 or 16 actually when i realised after yeeears of being confused in a hypersexual world.


    What IS being "asexual"?

    Asexuals don't experience sexual attraction to others. Female, male, non-binary - nope, we're not sexually attracted to any of you, nor anyone. That means we never have the urge to want to have sex with a specific person (which i understand to be a thing non-asexual experience at some point to someone - even if that's a celebrity dream)...Click here for full post.

    Welcome

    I get where you are coming from. I sometimes feel the same so you're not alone with how you are feeling.

    Hope we can help you feel and be, less alone.

    Take care

    I'm sorry to hear of your situation and how you feel. You can talk to us about how you feel. But i strongly recommend speaking to your gp if you haven't already. You can see your gp without your family knowing and never know if they can help til you've tried. But it's not healthy to bottle up your feelings. And definitely haven't done anything wrong.

    Comparing yourself to other peole can be quite damaging. Yet everyone is different. Everyone takes different paths and not every one is the same. But you have to focus on yourself and getting yourself where you want to be. Not where someone else is

    Take care
    Aidan 's post in the thread 'Relapse of mental health problems'

    Hey Lucie,

    You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

    And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate.

    You say yourself that your life is good but the problem seems to be in your head?
    Gratitude is something I've started practising more; it makes me more aware of and thankful for the good things I have, like a roof and fresh food and the use of my legs. Just little things we usually take for granted, because some people don't have those little things.

    How are you doing now?
