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."

  • Germalene "new skin" - Warning!

    I bought some of that fancy Germolene "new skin" stuff today. Waterproof, germ proof, aids natural healing, yadda yadda, "may sting briefly on fresh cuts".... LIES!!! "May sting like a fucking bitch for several minutes" would be better wording!
    Just a little warning... It hurts... a lot... :shocking: !!!
    It also smells like nail varnish...

    You know what the best bit is? "To remove apply more Germolene New Skin and wipe off"

    FUCK...
    THAT...

    Just thought I'd share to save other people from falling for it's evil lies!

        Does self-harming make the body stronger then?
        Blessed are the cracked for they let in the light.

            Yes. Remember everyone, pain is your friend.

                    My mum bought some and ending up wiping it off pretty sharpish - she said it hurt like a bitch.
