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."

  • Anxiety

    I'm having the worst anxiety lately, I don't know what is causing it but I can sleep or relax but I can't talk to anyone about it because my family doesn't belite in mental health

    Anxiety is weird like that, but you don't need a reason to be anxious, it's fine to feel like that even if it doesn't seem to be caused by anything!

    It's sad to hear your family is like that Myself, I use online friends and if impossible i use here as a vent (we don't bite and we all experienced a wide range of stuff...the world ain't so crazy when everyone else is mad too ;D) Or if not that, I open up wordpad and write down everything I think about (or paper journal if more convenient)...i've found that writing it down helps too, even if it's not as good as talking to another human, it's better than nothing!

      Hi there, and welcome to the community.

      I know how you feel. It's so difficult when your family just don't seem to get it. We are all here to listen to you, so well done for posting here. It's a really great step to take, just opening up to someone, anyone.

      When you're feeling anxious, it's really important to take good care of yourself. Have some alone time. And do something that calms you, like taking a bath or listening to some of your favourite songs. Breathing helps too.

      Take care.

        Anxiety can certainly be a bummer and the weird thing is we do not always need reasons as sometimes it can just happen, its normal to feel anxious even with a lack of or no reasons to. have you tried speaking to your parents about it? or maybe a trusted adult or friend? its good to open about these things and can really help to vent them through. is there a possible way you could go to the Drs yourself?
        when anxiety gets particularly bad its important to do what calms you down like taking a bath, listening to certain music, or distracting yourself with a good book or game. breathing exercises and meditation is rather helpful, I have three different meditations I do daily and it really helps keep my heart regulated. there are also chats on here and places like Kooth where you can one to one with an online counsellor that may benefit you, let us know how you're getting on and remember we're always here to help x
