Hi. My 19th birthday was yesterday so I'm no-longer able to use ChildLine. I'd been using it since I was about 14 or 15 and I hope that I can continue to get that kind of support because I tend to need to talk things through quite a lot.

Welcome to the mix! Happy belated birthday sorry you have grown out of the age cataloguer for Childline. Here at the mix the only thing we ask for is you to be respectful and at least be under 25 so you have got a healthy 6 years with us unless you stay for longer. We have some support chats on tonight at 8pm if you would like to come along to them and get some support. As always you are happy to post up on the boards and look around the whole site as well the offer is there if you want it.
If you would like to come to the chats you can access them from this page http://www.themix.org.uk/get-support/group-chat at 8pm. Chats last 90 minutes (finish at 9:30pm).
Hope to see you round more.

Hi I’m trying to move on but all I think about is Candice king and vampire diaries I’m tempted to restart the series but there’s no point because I’ll get more emotional and the vampire spin of show called the originals I’ve tried watching it and all I think about is Candice king and vampire diaries and it makes me very emotional and sometimes teary eyed.

Hello, I'm Megan, this is the first time I have properly reached out on my own, I have suffered with depression and anxiety in the last six months and after having an issue in work the same feelings i went through last time have now come back so I am reaching out now before it gets bad, and I know how bad that it gets so would like to speak out about it and express how I feel.
I am currently in new work which I am enjoying as a Support Worker, but an issue with a member of staff seems to have made me feel like I am going back into my old ways which I cannot let happen, as I feel that it would be some kind of 'shame' on my family, as they don't understand the awareness of mental health. They think that saying 'don't have any bad thoughts today' will miraculously cure me, which of course it doesn't.
I have three dogs, which I absolutely live for and they manage to get me through every single thing that goes wrong, I'm not saying that they cure my depression or anything but they certainly help me through and being away from them due to issues with my family has kept me from being away from them but they are my comfort blankets and they have stopped me from acting out before now.
So that is me for now.

Hi I'm mgkmdn. I don't do any kind of social media, so I'm kind of flying blind here. I'm here because I'm in a job I hate, but pay's decent. I've been doing the same thing for 20 years now. I think I'm burned out. My husband wants me to quit, he's worried I'm going to have a stroke because of stress. I'm afraid to quit because we can't live on his check alone. He's offered to work extra so I can quit, but I can't/won't let him do that. He already works 10 hour days and he's wonderful to me...I don't think it's fair he works more. Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanx!

Hello, I'm Mya and I'm 19, almost 20 next month 👌anyways I'm new to this cool lil site and am still trying to figure it out, but so far I like it. I found this site by looking up something that happened to me a couple days ago on Google and nothing was helping, but I found this so I hope it helps, because I'm lost in this world of mine and what happened a couple days ago to me doesn't help in the slightest just made me worst. I'm here to get advice and for someone to just tell me that things are going to get better and that I'll heal from the things life socked me with. Thank you website for letting me share👌
