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."

      Gah I miss chatting with you. @Esme17
      Thank you, means a lot. Had so much going on recently, I feel stressed out and hurt by situations that have happened in my personal life, but I've been made to feel like a shit person for putting my needs first.
      I've lost so much weight, I barely get out of bed. Im tired all the time, im struggling to motivate myself to get through my studies.
      But I guess my feelings don't matter and im not allowed to have a rough time

        Never feel shit for putting yourself first. You need to make sure you are alright. Do you think there is anything that would motivate you more to get out of bed and do things. Not necessarily study wise, more fun things that you enjoy? Maybe having more down time to enjoy yourself will allow you find it easier to do your work after.

        Your feelings do matter 100%!! Iím always here for you x

          Hey Meggles ,

          Esme's right, your feelings do matter. You should never be made to feel bad for having a rough time. After all, we all have them and taking care of yourself is very very important. I say keep doing that!

          I'm always here to listen if you ever need a rant or a chat!!

          Take care,

          - Eleanor

              Hi Meggles,

              I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling like this. You originally shared your feelings a few days ago, so I wanted to find out how you're feeling today?

              We all have days where we feel down so as Esme mentioned it's important to look after yourself. Self care is vital. I'm sorry to hear that you can't get an appointment with your doctor sooner. Is there a walk-in centre that you could go to instead? The Mix has some tips on self care that you might find helpful whilst you wait for your appointment:
