Post of The Month

Abigail is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hi there,

Welcome to the boards. Hope you gind it more helpful.

Its hard to find support, sorry that no one will take you to see your gp/doctor i am not sure if this is the same for you but you are aload to book doctors appointments without your parents being there and you can attend them unacccompanied.

Depression and other illness can be quite scary especially when your quite young. Do have a look round the site there are lots of useful articles and information on here.

You are not alone.

Sunday to thursday we have support chats and general chats on at 8pm till 9:30pm if you would like to join them. They are a great way to get to know people and seak support at the same time. Heres the link to the page -

Hope to see you round

    Not sure if this counts but mine would probably be what my coach tells me which is:

    Never let success get to your head. Never let failure get to your heart.
    Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations

      Esme17 I love that!! It's great that your coach is telling you to never get discouraged, reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: "failure is not falling down, failure is refusing to get back up"

        “You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”

          Jellyelephant that's amazing! That's so true, fear can stop us from doing amazing things! Actually your quote reminds me of the movie "We're the Millers," the dad in the movie tells the son to just count to three and then do what he normally would have been scared to do, and it actually works for him! Hahah you're quote really reminded me of that movie!!

            There is No elevator to success. You have to take the stairs. - this also is the same about life and recovery.
            I am human, I fight through the pain to allow the ones I love to continue to live a fulfilling life.

              I love Forest Gump!! So my film quote would be:
              "Life is like a box of chocolate"
              I never got what this actually meant, but I guess it makes sense.


              If you take all the good stuff out, it becomes empty
              Tough times never last, but tough people do

                  Aidan wow! I've never thought about that quote that way! I love Forrest Gump too, I always thought "Life is like a box of chocolates" meant everybody's life is so different, you never know what life is going to throw at you next! But I love your interpretation more!! It's so true, if you take out all the things in your life that make you happy, it becomes empty. Thanks for sharing!!

                      Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles, failure and loss only act as motivation.
