Chatwee Update

Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

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

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • A poem about starting to move forward.

    I sit here typing trying to find the right words,
    The words to describe what itís been like all those years,
    But as my fingers hit the keys,
    I find that my mind just wonders free.

    Everything that happened has gone and been,
    Theres no point looking and trying to intervene,
    All the pain, the fear, the guilt, the need.
    All the stuff that you can not see,
    Is sealed within and wonít get free,

    For now itís time to believe,
    To stop the flee,
    And see
    That the future can be anything you want it to be.

    (A poem about moving forward. Am not sure if I've let go yet or if I've forgiven the abuse from my mother or the bullies from school, but I think am starting to be ok a little and it's ok because it's just a little, I don't need to be all ok just yet or let go of it all)

        I wrote a poem once. Not about me, it was about a girl I knew. About her real scars and her hidden ones, and about how she only ever broke people's hearts because she never knew what it was like to have an unbroken one. She killed herself soon after. She never read the poem, I don't know where it is so I can't share it, sorry.

        Anyway, yours was very nice

        ​It's the human thing to do

                Yeah I know, I think I'm finally getting over it. Well, accepting it anyway.
