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."

  • My Aunty

    As some of you may know my Aunty has cancer. She first found out 2 years and 2 months ago. She had chemo and also an op to remove it but she was told about 10 months ago I think that nothing else could be done. My mum just phoned me and told me my aunty isnt feeling very well again and the district nurse is going round to do blood tests. My mum just said to me my auntys husband so my uncle has taken the week of work to be with her 😢 Its my auntys birthday next week aswell and me and my mum have a holiday booked for next Sunday. We was all round at my grandmas when my grandad died by cancer and he died while we was driving back home my grandma called my mum up as we was nearly home and my grandma told us to come back. No-one knows this but when we left I popped my head round the door to say goodbye to my grandad he put his hand on his heart. So we know it can happen very quickly. I'm so sad, I need a hug.

    Hi Lostsense,

    I'm so sorry to hear about both your aunt and your granddad. Here's a hug Losing family members can be incredibly hard, even when you know that it is coming. It sounds like you are worried about not having enough time to spend with your aunt. Is that right?


    Grieving can be a very difficult process, and not everyone knows what to do with those feelings. If you can, find someone to talk to whether that is your mum, or on here. We will all be here for you when you need to talk.

      Hey Kathleen 🖑 nice to meet you for a while

      Thankyou for the hug very much needed! I appreciate it. Well when I wrote the first post on this thread I wrote it just after my mum phoned me and what she was saying to me on the phone sounded like my Auntie was in a bad way and thought she might go this week but my Auntie is still going out so thats good. For the last 2months of my grandads life he spend it in bed. We just dont know. Its my Aunties birthday on Tuesday but I will be seeing her next Sunday.

            She hasent got long left to live they didnt think she would live this long. She keeps collapsing and sleeps in bed all day. She has been offered a bed to sleep downstairs...she will then die in that bed but says she dosent want that yet but when she does she wants us to visit her. I wrote in her Birthday card that I love her lots so she knows I do as she wont be receving any more cards from any of us as she hasnt got long left😢
