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."

    Hi guys

    Sorry I've been very quite recently I've have to deal with something's at I guess that's what brought me here

    Yesterday I met up with my isva and I took a friend who knows what happend even bough it wasn't easy I closed down shaking trying not to cry planning how to escape we came to the decision to ring the police and report him so that what we did , we went to the car and rung them my isva placed the report for me because I couldn't talk.

    I also went to the gp because how I felt and she's put me on anit depressants I dunno if I want to be on them but maybe it for the best

    I have to go have a DVD interview done I just want to curl up and cry

    Hey Horsemad,

    This is such a big step you've taken, really well done It's great to hear that your ISVA and friend were there with you. For many people this isn't easy at all, how are you feeling about everything today?

    All the best,

            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

                      It sounds hard not talking to them too, sometimes we just want someone to be there for us. We are here as much as we can be for you.

                      I'm guessing you had a tough day
