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...

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).

  • Washington & Russia

    What's everyone's opinion on the latest developments around the Trump administration and Russia?

    To summarise, Donald Trump Jr recently Tweeted a transcript of an email conversation he had with a Russian lawyer during the US election campaign last year. The email conversation shows that the two of them arranged to meet with the pretext of the Russian lawyer having information about Hillary Clinton that could help Donald Trump's campaign.

    Opinion on what this actually means seems pretty divided. Some are saying it's evidence of colluding with a foreign government, some are pointing out that that's not technically in violation of the US constitution, and some are straight up saying it doesn't mean anything because no information ended up changing hands as their meeting.

    What do people think?
    Taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself.

    I'm interested in world news, so please don't think I'm thread bumping...

    Hmm, life at The White House has certainly moved on since Hilary Clinton had her emails hacked, but nothing concrete came out of that. In one of his Tweets way back then, Donald Trump said, “Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing, I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. I have nothing to do with Russia." and the national press went quiet until Michael Flynn's lying to the FBI became news and Hilary went as quiet as a mouse.

    Since then, Flynn, ex-national security advisor was charged with making a false statement to the FBI, and investigation got underway though the national press have gone quiet on it - yet again - and got interested again when Trump began causing divisions between Jerusalem and the Palestinians. Up to then we've had weeks of watching that phuquewit courting a nuclear war with North Korea, worrying everyone, so I'm wondering if we'll be seeing war between the two nations as the Jews begin celebrating Hanukkah, all but 4 days away? Presently, riots are happening at the West Bank after Donald Trump officially announced that the US now recognises Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

    This baby-fingered, schoolyard bully of a president likes causing division. He's upset nations including Britain, and 2018 may see a state visit to London by the wretched man. But what else have we to look forward to in the next four years of Trump's lunatic presidency?

    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.
