Chatwee Update

Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

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

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • It's hard.

    knowing that my main coping mechanism is no longer helping. Hearing what the social worker said really stuck to me,it's been months but I've always functioned semi denial because it prevented me from becoming too affiliated with my diagnosis, it's hard because I don't want to go back and I'm going back. I'm not going to be rendered sick or helpless.I want to be okay and I've been okay before.

    12 days clean and despite having other ideas I've not acted on them.

          Huge props, Salix! That's amazing. Loving your determination.

          Someone sent me this recently and it feels appropriate to share with you:

          Taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself.
