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."

  • Staying with friends

    Hi so I'm staying with friends atm. Two women.. I am finding it tough to be constantly around people when I used to live alone. I have lived with people in the past but not for a while. I am struggling to keep calm and not get stressed out.

    Hey Turtle,

    I'm sorry to hear you're finding it tough to live with your friends at the moment. It can be hard moving back in with friends and getting used to a busy house when we're used to living alone. For some people what can help is to take some time in the day for yourself, so finding a quiet room to chill out in away from your housemates. Do you have your own room where you can go when you feel things are getting a bit too hectic? Communication is also really important too, do you feel you can talk to your housemates about what you're feeling stressed about?

      Hi Aife
      I have my own room it is small but I like it. That's a good idea. I can't really talk to my friends as it is there house I am just staying in . Just don't feel like I have much say in like things and that's ok.. but I m nervous I am going to be annoying to them.

        Hey turtle

        I understand the stress of being around people being to much. Especially if it's all of a sudden and not use to it. It can take some time to get use to but nice that you have your own room. And going out when you feel stressed for a walk or something that calms you down could help?. By yourself or with other People in a different environment.

        You live there so you have some say in things if you don't feel comfortable with certain things . And can say it in ways that may not seem annoying
        I dont expect anything - to just end up disappointed. But i do not have zero hope for the future cause that has only dragged me down & brung negativity. I will just not predict the future

            How's it going, Turtle?
            Taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself.

              Things settled down a bit thankfully I always worry about being rude etc to people. I am going to move and stay with some family for a month next week. And then move again in July.

              But it's ok. Hope you are ok too .
