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:

    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

    @Shaunie What's up?  <3

    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. :/

    University has ruined my mental well being. Depression, anxiety, insomnia. I feel like such a mess and really really struggling. With little support from the university it doesn't help at all. No wonder suicide rates with students is increasing. The pressure to go to university and achieve is insane. So many students I speak to have diagnosed mental health issues since attending university. Does that not say something? 
    Anyway, on medication for anxiety too now, I've had enough.

    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.
