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..

    Hi I thought i would write a little something about my life... Im 18 years old, left school at 14 years old due to severe anxiety and panic attacks. I suffer with two phobias that control my life, emetophobia and cardiophobia... i cant explain them as it triggers me. I am also on the autistic spectrum. Im pretty nervous about being on these forums as i used to be on a forum when I was 13 years old and people used to be pretty horrible at times. My Dad died in September after battling alcoholism and diabetes... a lot went n before he died and he had to move out in April 2017. Im very lonely and dont have many friends if any, I am extremely passionate about animals and work part time at a rehoming kennels! Animals are the only thing that have kept me going through the past few years, ive had some extremely dark times that have ended with me in hospital but Im just looking for some support. Please dont be horrible...

      Hey Soph_ollie, and welcome to the boards.

      It's Eleanor, 14, from chat. It's really great to have you here and sorry you've had bad experiences in the past. I think the difference on here is that we all have our unique problems and have no interest in judging others. In my experience everyone is really kind.

      I'm sorry to hear you've had such a hard time over the past few years. I have emetophobia as well, so can realte to that. Hopefully being here will get the support you need at the mo!

      Take care.

        I dont expect anything - to just end up disappointed. But i do not have zero hope for the future cause that has only dragged me down & brung negativity. I will just not predict the future
