Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

  • Possible assault

    I need some advice. Last week, at a party I
    was completely out of it and can't remember half of the night. I've been told though that there was nearly a fight because one man thought that this other man (who's more than double my age) was taking advantage of me. I was also apparently in the toilet with him at one point. The next day he did say "we should do that again sometime" I assumed he was referring to the party and said "yeah it was good, we should all get together more often" to which he replied "yes we should stay at a B&B". I'm worried he might of done something but I have no recollection of it.

    Also, a while back a boy was really overly forward. He kept kissing my stomach/neck and put his hand up my bra despite me repeatedly telling him no and moving his hand away. Now I seem to be getting in a weird relationship with him.

    I have various mental health conditions and I see my nurse tomorrow. What will happen if I tell her about any of this? I really don't want it being made into a big deal but feel like I need to tell someone because it's worsening my mental health.

    Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks 😊

    Well done for opening up about this on the boards it can be a very confusing situation to be in. How you feeling about the situation at the moment?

    It is great that you are thinking about telling the nurse, I am not completely sure what the nurse would do if you told her but she wouldn't do anything you didn't want her to do and should discuss everything with you could do.

    Did you tell your nurse, if you did how did it go?

    Hope to here from you soon,

      Hey maddie

      I'm sorry for what happened, did you manage to speak to your nurse about it? It's good you've managed to tell us, the first step is always the hardest. Your nurse can't to anything without your permission unless youre under 16 (maybe 18 in England I don't know) but they can support you through it and be an outlet for you to explain how it's effecting you
