An insight to me

Hi,
I'm Joanne but please call me Jo. This looks formal but I can assure you I'm not a formal person. I'm 17 and so far my life has not been so good. At 10 i lost my grandma, then 3 years ago i lost my granddad, last year my other granddad had a stroke and this year my dad had a cardiac event. Just recently i broke up with my boyfriend and it hasn't done me any good considering what happened between us. I ended up being recommended The Mix by mu supervisor at college and well here I am, telling a bunch of strangers who I am and honestly I'm proud that i can talk about whats happened to me.
Anyway
Cya for now!

    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.

    Welcome to the boards Jo, it's lovely to have you here :) 

    It sounds really tough what you've been through. I really hope we can help you support you through everything here. When you're ready head over to one of the other sub-forums to make a post. We're here for you <3


    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 ❤
