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"

Support Circles on Sundays

We're going to be running support circles once a month on a Sunday! At the moment they run on Tuesdays, but for one of those Tuesdays, each month they will be running on a Sunday instead.

This next Sunday support circle will be on the 17th of December. If you'd like to come along, feel free to sign-up closer to the time (when we post the thread for it).

  • About this forum (Politics & Debate)

    This is the user guide to Politics & Debate,
    but you should also remember the
    registration rules you agreed to
    when joining these boards.

    Welcome to Politics & Debate!

    This corner of The Mix is a place to exchange opinions on pretty much anything you have an opinion on. Whether it's politics, something you've seen in the news or an issue that means a lot to you, this is the place to talk about it.

    There are a few things worth bearing in mind:

    1. Debate pretty much covers everything

    There's a huge variety of issues that can be covered by the idea of debate, not just things some people assume to be 'politics'. If what you want to talk about is something that matters to you and something you'd like other people to discuss as well, then it's worth making a thread about it.

    2. Introduce what you'd like to talk about

    Always good to start with an overview of what you'd like to talk about. Doesn't have to be an essay, often the thread title itself will almost cover the issues, but a few lines can help get across exactly what's on your mind.

    3. Links help

    Often it's a news story that starts people of thinking about a particular issue. If that's the case with what you want to talk about then include a link so people can get up to speed with you quickly.

    4. Your own opinion matters

    As with any of the other sections here at The Mix - your own opinion on a subject makes a huge difference to the way people read threads. It helps frame a debate and it helps other people to understand why a thread has been started. So when starting a thread it's worth just saying a little bit about how you feel as well. Don't worry about having to say too much - they'll be plenty of time to expand on ideas later on.

    5. Not everyone will agree with you

    Hands down, there ain't a thing in the world everyone agrees with. Bear in mind that the point of starting a debate is to hear different views - so be prepared for others to disagree and show a different perspective. That's the good bit of the boards. Of course if it steps over into insults, as sometimes happens, let a moderator know through the report post button.

    Have fun!
