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...

  • Leaving the Mix!!

    Hey everybody!! As some of you may know, I was new to The Mix back in September because I was doing my internship here as I was studying abroad in the UK! Unfortunately, I'll be heading home in the next couple of weeks back for America! I can't believe how much I learned in the past three months, and I'm so happy I got to speak to a bunch of you guys on the boards and in support chats! I'm going to miss it here so much, and I am so thankful that I had the experience to be apart of this awesome organization! Thank you to everyone for being so friendly and inviting here on the boards/in chats and I wish you all the best of luck!

    Thank you again!!!

        Hey vidhya

        I knew this time was coming and i wondered which day it was but i was to much of chicken to ask when it was.
        You will be missed, you have been a really really lovely, i have learnt so much from you for example your way of supporting as well all have are own different style.

        You are so lovely and i really enjoyed chat alongside you.

        Remember where you have come from but also where you have been.

        You have probably heard this song to much from Aife (She has a lot to blame for ) but here it is again.

        Have a save journey back.

        Speak soon


        P.s I am seriously not good with goodbyes.

          I will sadly miss you, @vidhya but we have to go home to where our hearts are, where family and dear friends await.

          Thank you for all you have done for me.

          Take care on your journey home and keep safe.

          All the best,
