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."

  • My dad might have cancer

    Today has been such a hard day. My dad went to the doctors a few weeks ago for something and had to go to the hospital for scans they phoned up today and he had to go to the GP surgery again and they basically said that its not what they thought it was and that it is most likely a cancer of some kind. I really dont know what to do! Just as i was getting over one problem this goes and happens and now i feel useless and have no one to talk to about things.

    I'm so sorry to hear this

    Just know that we are always here to listen and chat and understand. Cancer has been in my family too so I might kinda understand, the feeling of helplessness hurts, so accepting you cant stop the cancer helps.

    It doesnt mean theres nothing you can do- in my auntie's final days I made sure to travel all the way over to the west coast to see her and spend some final quality time and say goodbye. I never got to see my uncle in his final days, which I wish I had. But it's good to know he was well cared for and in no pain.

    It hasn't got to that stage for you yet, so hang on to that hope
    I hope it isnt serious and it all goes well, best wishes
    No matter how hard it will get
    We will pull always through

      Thanks Aidan. I'm sorry to hear about your aunt and uncle. We should know for certain what it is in a few weeks so I just need to get through these then hopefully it will get easier once we know for certain.
