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."

  • Hello!

    Hey, I'm a high schooler living in the US. In the last month, I've decided to look further into the possibility of my having several disorders. So far, it looks like I have a very high probability of social anxiety, a moderate probability of obsessive-compulsive disorder (almost definite trichotillomania and excoriation on the side), and a moderate probability of dependent personality disorder.
    I feel a bit trapped on the subject, though--my parents have a history of not taking me seriously. Since I'm not old enough to drive (and would likely be in serious trouble if I went anywhere without permission even if I could drive), I can't get a diagnosis or anything without talking to my parents. Aaand that's why I was looking for an online community.
    Also, I'm ace/aro/quoiro. Not out to my parents--guess why--but I'm out to select friends.
    So, uh, yeah. Oh, and I like to sing and play horn (more commonly but incorrectly referred to as the French horn), hence the username.
