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...

Esme x"

      I just realised the exactly the same thing about half an hour ago! I was going to ask here why we have to put our email address in to make an account for chat but then thought nah wasent going to ask but then saw your comment and wanted to say that you could make up an email address and then sign up for chat if you dont already have any other email addresses. Its very quick and easy to make an email address ☺

        Yep! Great point, Lostsense. You can also use a burner email address (a temporary one) if you like, which you don't need to register anything for. Maildropcc is one option - just register with the address they give you.

                The greatest female power is empathy to create relationships on a personal level. It's better for a woman to come across as more nurturing, more warm, and that is going to lend more success to her than for a man doing the same thing.

                            Hi Eleanor

                            Phones are handy, but their screens are rather small. I think using your laptop for new chat will give more joy and less frustration. Your laptop's larger screen also means seeing larger font and you'll see the whole of the new chat.
