Post of The Month

Esme17 is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey. Hope you are doing okay?

I completely understand what you mean about feeling low mainly at night. like you said, It is probably because you have nothing else you need to be doing then and so have more time to think. Is there anything you could do that makes you feel slightly happier during this time (watch a film, read etc..)?

Do you know what is making you feel this way? I know you mentioned losing your nan which must have been really hard for you and Iím very sorry to hear that!

Iím not too sure what would be best for you to do in the situation but i would say it would be best to speak to someone like your gp because they could tell you for sure if it does need looking into more and even if it didnít, it would put your mind at rest a bit? I know how hard it can be seeing someone though so just make sure you do what feels right for you.

Remember you can also always come to the board to get support and to chats as well.

Let us know how things go? Iím sorry if this didnít help at all, I think I rambled a bit but I tried...

    Hi @brucie7080

    Sorry to be late to your post, but depending where you are living, you and young daughter might be able to join your local branch of the RSPCA

    https://www.rspca.org.uk/getinvolved/volunteer/vacancy

    Volunteering is an honourable thing to do wherever you live, and I am sure any charitable organisation will welcome your offer to help. My partner has contact with Centrepoint in London. Though am unsure if your daughter would be allowed with you, here is their website to enquire:

    All the best

    The greatest female power is empathy to create relationships on a personal level. It's better for a woman to come across as more nurturing, more warm, and that is going to lend more success to her than for a man doing the same thing.
