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."

  • How do I talk myself out of suicide?

    I've been thinking about suicide for a while now and at this point I just want to do it. I actually attempted suicide a few weeks ago but I got caught by someone and they stopped me. I just don't see the point in living. I feel like I've wasted my life up till this point (I'm only 13 but still, 13 years is a lot of time and I've done nothing) and I know that I'm probably not going to do anything important with my life. There just isn't a point anymore. Please help.

    Hey,

    Welcome to the community. It's really brave of you to reach out to us.

    Just a quick heads up, the boards aren't the best place to talk about suicidal thoughts in detail. You're welcome to talk about the feelings behind it, but we do need to keep things safe for the community so straying away from anything too heavy or specific is a good idea. If you would like a space to talk more openly about suicide or you find yourself at breaking point, we'd really recommend speaking to Samaritans or Papyrus.

    That said, the boards are usually a great place to talk through wider issues you might be having. For example, the feeling about not doing anything important with your life - that's definitely something the community can explore with you.

    Is there anything specific making you think that, or is it more of a general feeling? Are you in school at the moment?

    You're doing really well to post here, let us know how you're getting on.
