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."

  • Hi I'm Ellie

    I'm 20 years old and a very shy, I struggle in many social situations as I'm a very anxious person. I was diagnosed with bipolar 2 when I was 18 and over the past couple of years it has been a real struggle. I have a huge amount of support from my family but sometimes feel that I am a burden and bring them down. I have a partner who I've been with for 6 years and every day he does his best to make me smile. Although I have all of these amazing people in my life I don't want them to feel like its their responsibility to make me happy. After I was diagnosed i didn't (and still haven't) recive/d any support. I am on permanent medication to try help but at the moment it isn't even working. I wanted to know if there was some alternative to more/different medication. I just need some new kind of support or advice or just how to cope daily when I feel like this .
    Many thanks
