    Bringing this back, a girl in my dorm is really struggling today with voices, me and my friend ordered milkshakes and got one for this girl as well, she cried she was so grateful 🥺🥺 she's now smiling and it's given her a bit of a distraction, it's the little things 🤗🤗 ALWAYS be kind.

    @Emma_ thankyou, not sure if you saw on the other thread but woke up a few days ago to find this on the end of my bed from her, and a wee note thanking me 🥺🥺

    The pharmacist was so lovely

    She spoke to me in the consultation room. While I was crying lol. I told her how I go back to work tomorrow and thought I’d feel better for it but I don’t because everything will be going back to normal and face masks will not be a thing and I’m paranoid about my breath.

    She said that everytime I collect my prescription on a Friday we can go into consultation room and talk and make a plan and she said she will do some research in how to help me

    So kind

    A few days ago I gave someone 70p cause I heard the toll person saying was 70p short so I gave the girl 70p. Normally don’t have change but actually did

    We were just talking about this thread today and thought it would be nice to get it going again.

    Has anyone had any recent acts of kindness from anyone or something kind you've done for someone else?
    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 ❤

    A colleague of mine supported me when I hit rock bottom, she also brought my train ticket to visit my mum because it's what I needed at the time..
    I'm forever thankful for her kindness
