Post of The Month (August)

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

"my recent post and a comment from another user has made me realise that self care is so important.

I wanted to start a thread in the Health and Wellbeing section of the boards about self care.

Self care is provided by you, for you

I know a lot of us are struggling at the moment with different aspects of our own lives, and sometimes we get so lost in these we forget to take time for ourselves. This tread is, a Reminder to you to take time out for yourself during the difficult times.

down in the comments I would really love for people to share ideas and tips about self- care. to remind ourselves and others in the community.

My way of self care when i recognise ( or someone recognises i have neglected myself) is:

Take a walk and admire whats around me ( take as long as needed)
treat myself to a bath with a bathbomb and bubbles ( bubbles are important)
make a hot drink and just sit down with a film.

Please feel free to share your ideas!

The Mix have a guide to self-care which you can find here."

  • 2 Years on from a tragic experience in my life and still hurts more than ever

    This is hard to write but I need as much support as possible right now as its getting to me right now. So 2 years ago on the 19/3/15 in the early hours of the morning after being out for my 18th birthday I was involved in a serious car accident which led to me having a miscarriage. This has had a big impact on my life and I worry about the thought of getting pregnant again.

    ​Can being underweight effect the chances of getting pregnant? Can being underweight effect the chances of a baby surviving? These questions have been on my mind recently.

    ​Need as much support as possible right now

    Sorry to hear that happened to you.
    I cant say I know how you're feeling but it must of been tramuatic and can understand it would impact you. And maybe a natural response to be fearful of pregnancies.
    But being underweight can affect your chances of getting pregnant. Are you thinking of getting pregnant soon? It would be a good idea to try and get to a healthy weight before trying to give best possible chances. And to start eating more healthy when being pregnant. But that being said I'm sure there have been healthy pregnancies when people are underweight.
    The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide you are not going to stay where you are

      Hi Shaunie. Thanks for the reply. Yeh its been hard and thanks for your information on being underweight and pregnant. I have a slight feeling I might already be pregnant again too be honest which is why I asked these questions.

        Hey Laura,
        I know it's been a difficult time for you recently, having to relive all of these terrible memories whilst going through a lot of other crap too, it's not been easy on you, but you're so strong and you will pull through, I believe in you 💗 Being underweight may affect your pregnancy though so really try to get better, but I know you're doing you're best already, you can do this.

          Hey Pink and fluffy. Yeh its been difficult for me recently and I didn't really want to have to relive the terrible things in life but at the same time I felt it might help because then others can have help if they are going or have gone through something similar and I just felt it might help to let others know whats been going on for me! Thanks for saying I'm a strong person and I hope I can get through all of this but this has been the hardest thing for me to deal with in my whole life! I'm trying hard to get myself better. Ive got a scan tomorrow to find out if I'm pregnant again which I'm really worried about too be honest. Thanks Alice for having the confidence in me even I don't have the confidence in myself

            • #7
              Hi Pink and Fluffy x Thanks hopefully the scan will go ok, I don't know what I want the result to be right now too be honest, yeh my auntie said she will go with me,

                  Hey Laura,

                    hi all. Just come out of my scan and I'm 50/50 about the result I just got too be honest. I am indeed pregnant but right now I'm unsure if this is a good thing or not because of what happened 2 years ago!
