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."

    Hey Notagain,
    Are you doing okay? Do you want to talk about anything?
    You're a ghost at most
    A set of empty bones
    Searching for anything and everything to make you feel whole

      I hope youre okay < 3
      I dont expect anything - to just end up disappointed. But i do not have zero hope for the future cause that has only dragged me down & brung negativity. I will just not predict the future

        Hey notagain

        Just wanted to drop by and say I hope you are okay. Remember a relapse doesn't mean the end of recovery. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep fighting lovely girl <3

            Thank you all for kind words and support, I really do appreciate it.

            I experienced a really big trigger on Sunday and Monday so wrote things and looking back I think it might have been triggering for other people. I wanted to keep the community safe so I just got rid of it all.

              Hey Notagainvitelina, I hope you're feeling a bit better today, do you want to talk a bit more about what happened on Sunday and Monday? If you're a little unsure about what you can post and if you feel anything might be triggering, you're more than welcome to send a PM to The Mix account with your post and we can look over anything to see if it's safe for the community

              All the best,

                I feel frustrated and I feel upset.

                I don't don't even know what else to say.

                Starting tomorrow I'm going back to before.

                I don't want to talk to anyone and I want to be left alone.

                In this state I feel like I can throw all the food in the house away. I want to. I'm so upset and all I want to do is scream and cry.I feel like I've messed it all up. I should have lost more.

                  Salix alba Sorry your not feeling great at the moment. Its hard when you feel like this. Crying isn't a sign of weakness its natural and if you feel like you need to scream to help you feel a little bit better that is perfectly acceptable. How your feeling and the way you want to react is normal and understandable.
