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...

    I got the Samsung Galaxy S6 which is Android but getting the S7 soon.

    I perfer androids rather than Iphones.

    £140 is a low budget you'de have to look in shops like CEX.

      Two that spring to mind are the Huawei P8 Lite and Ulefone Be Touch 2. The Huawei one came strongly recommended to me by a colleague and you should be able to find one (maybe refurbished) in your price range. I've had the Ulefone Be Touch for a few years now and it was only £150ish when I bought it, lasted very well and performed decently considering how cheap it was. Should be able to find one of those for under £140 if you have a bit of a dig around.

      I agree with Lostsense though, £140 is a pretty low budget so you might have to look into pre-owned or refurb stuff unless you're okay with something basic.
      Taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself.

            Mike it's actually funny you recommend to Jess the Huawei p8 as I've been at my mums today and my mums ex "boyfriend" now kind of "friend" has just bought a package on contract the Huawei but I think his is p9 and a tablet within the package and I think he said it's £40 a month I think
