[OLD] The 'I need a hug' thread - please read first post before posting :)

Hi guys, here is my revised version of this thread! The other one was a quick lazy post to put a thread here.

This thread is for posting things which may not belong or be appropriate for the ranty thread in Anything Goes. This means that some of the posts in here have the potential to be triggering for some users and you should be aware that some of the content may be uncomfortable reading for some of you.

A few quick notes:
  • This isn't a replacement for making your own threads. Please don't feel like you can't do that :). This is more for (quoting the lovely Arctic Roll) "the times where people don't want advice, they just want somebody to know". If you are very worried, please please please make a thread of your own, where people would be more likely to give you personal advice etc.
  • No post is too insignificant, no post is too large. Don't feel uncomfortable posting here because you aren't sure if it belongs. If you need a hug, you can post in the thread. For whatever reason. The reason it is in health is because it was felt that people needed a place to vent or post potentially triggering content somewhere where others weren't going to feel uncomfortable reading it.
  • If you find the thread helpful, please let us know. It's always nice to feel appreciated :)
  • No photos, please. Users who post images of their self-injury or similar will have their posts reported.
  • Thank you for reading. I hope this thread can be helpful for some of you. :heart:

    Hey both - @BubblesGoesBoo & @Floxy

    This is actually something @Aife and I noticed this morning, too! We're not sure what's happened - it certainly wasn't planned. We're talking to our tech team about it and will let everyone know when we have more info. There's a chance it may have gotten lost somewhere when we migrated.

    For now, feel free to keep using this thread. :smile:

    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    So my dad has to go back to the hospital in Birmingham  :'(  he has an infection and theyre worried it could turn into sepsis.
    They'll look after your dad all right. The hospital staff will put him on strong intravenous antibiotics and those antibiotics are very effective. We'll be thinking of you tonight @BubblesGoesBoo

    Saw my doctor today for another blood sugar test. I have one every month to check sugars because she thinks I could be diabetic type 1. Despite not eating sugary foods and being careful with my eating, I don't feel wonderful. Sugar content, salt intake and fats all have to be checked on cartons or jars as I don't want my mmols racing. Been so tired lately and the lady who was going to work for me didn't turn up. Not helping either is the heat even though it's cloudy today. I feel pretty down, so hugs would be most welcome.

    Oh- too late to add a link.

    Continuing from my want of hugs, this could be a useful link for infomation on teen diabetes. https://www.diabetes.org.uk/guide-to-diabetes/teens 

    I'm anxiously awaiting results from my latest blood test. :/

    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Dreadful thunderstorms all night and continuing into today. Sounds like a war zone! Menorca is badly affected right now.

    So glad I put up lightning conductors. And I'm so grateful that aunty and her partner came last night to stay and help us out.

    Sending you hugs @Shaunie <3 We're here if you want to talk about anything :) 
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
