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

    I looked you in the eyes,
    As you came at me with a knife,
    I couldn’t move,
    I couldn’t hide,
    And with each stride,
    I really thought I was going to die.

    You walked across that living room,
    My back against a wall,
    You came up so close,
    And you looked oh so very tall.

    I pleaded in my head,
    I begged you through my eyes,
    For the only sound I made,
    Was my heart beating like a train.

    I knew my mum was in there,
    Somewhere in the dark,
    I only hoped she would open her eyes,
    Before mine close for a final time.

      I actually felt scared reading that one, like I was the child in the poem. These are amazing
      Tough times never last, but tough people do
