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."

    Hey Jake, and welcome to the community.

    Just to let you know, I removed one of the more graphic sections of your post regarding the miscarriage, just to avoid any triggers and to keep things safe for anyone else reading. I've also moved your post to our sex & rels forum as this feels like more of a support thread than an intro.

    It's great to see you posting and reaching out for some support after everything you've been through. These things are never easy, but talking about them and asking for some help is a hugely positive thing to do. It feels like there's quite a lot to break down in your original post, and it seems like you've been on quite a roller coaster with everything you mentioned above. It's a heck of a lot to be dealing with.

    I wonder if it would help to focus on something in particular - what would you like some support around specifically? I'm just wary that I don't want to go into depth about one of the things you mentioned if it wouldn't be helpful at this moment in time, so it might be best if we know how to approach this in a way that's useful for you.

    How are you feeling now? Do you and her talk or are you distanced from each other?

    Props again for finding your way here - good to have you.
