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."

  • Hi again :)


    My name is Amanda, Iím 20 and from Scotland. I joined these forums in 2015 when it was ďTheSiteĒ , Iíve not been on in a while but thought Iíd say hi again

    Sadly still struggling a lot with my mental health, I have Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder and anxiety. Still struggling a lot, ended up staying in hospital overnight Tuesday to Wednesday this week.. I still live with my parents, and they now know again Iím struggling again (cause obviously had to tell them I was staying overnight in hospital). Iím 20 years old, can be mature in ways yet I still have a lot of growing up to do emotionally. Things with parents have been tough, Mum apologised for stuff she said in past and they want to support me. But I still have difficulty opening up to them. Sorry was supposed to keep this brief update but Iíve just went off on a tangent.

    Iím still a university student, Iím now in 3rd year. Somehow made it through another year, too many breakdowns but somehow passed. Just started back as a 3rd year in September, but my mental health has been poorly so itís affected my uni and Iíve missed a lot. Iíve now went part time and, meaning Iíll be in 3rd year this year and next year. That doesnít really bother me, I still need structure of uni but like full time is too much right now and I need to look after my mental health more. But despite moving to part time still ended up at hospital on Tuesday this week :/

    Basically coming back here after 6months to a year (honestly donít know how long, lost track of time), not that much further forward.

    Anyways sorry for going off again, hi, how is everyone ?

    Amanda x
    Wishing you a Magical Christmas

    Heeey! Been a while! I have eupd too, so i know how tough it is I'm sorry to hear you're still struggling, but well done for sticking uni out! It's the little positives we have to hold onto. It's good to see you back and to have a friendly face around
