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...

  • Whatís up people ✌️

    Hello fellow humans 😎

    As someone with social anxiety, Iíve never been able to loosen up in person and show off my true self, so I thought Iíd give this site a go to speak to other people without the kind of pressure Iíd sense in reality.

    Just to give a bit of info about me, my name is Nathan and Iím a 19 year old guy who is completely unsure of what path to take in life. I endured a tough past in secondary school which I have never been able to get over completely, as it shows now. Despite that I love to speak to new people but my anxiety is always lurking there waiting to eat up any rays of positivity a lot of the time.

    Now as someone who worries to the extent of something as small as adding someone on Instagram or Facebook, even posting here was giving me doubts! Iíd like to prove to myself that itís ok to socialise with people.

    Anyways, just for a bit of fun to begin with hit me up with any kind of questions! Ask me about my free time, my life, what Iím going through, whatever your curiosity can come up with (keep it clean tho pls &#128518.

    Once again, hello community 😎
