Hey everyone,

Tonight, we have Support Chat and General Chat running from 8-9:30pm.

Support Chat: A place to talk about anything on your mind in a safe, supportive environment. Alice and Lucy will be modding.

General Chat: A place for more light-hearted chat about pretty much anything be it TV, music, the weather, that hilarious video you saw on YouTube etc. Wayne and Stephanie will be modding.

Enjoy,

    It is better than having nobody there to support you. Just stating the truth. Sorry if I seem sassy or rude at all. I didn't mean to be that way.

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    Hey @dancertori

    We have a thread here where some other members have shared some tips about what helps them get support when chat is busy. I hope you find it helpful :)

    It’s always busy we just all need to do give and take. If it’s busy try and support others and then when you ask for support other people will be more likely to try and support you. If you just ask for support all the time but don’t give to others then people might not be inclined to support u

    Id support everyone even if they dont give support. Its pretty hard to do in that environment, let alone by the end of day when too drained and when have own challenges. And just hard to know what to say anyway. (Also not saying to be rude lol just think good thing to point out and not make feel like there is a population of people who should get less support depending on what give) :)

    i struggle to keep up with it and miss bits even if i'm not saying stuff, probably my dyslexia making it hard to keep up, and it gives me loads of anxiety.

    Oh I’m not saying shouldn’t get support if you don’t give enough. It was more of a general comment that chat IS busy often... and if it’s too busy to get support then try offering support to someone else... and then if we all do a bit of give and take then it will help encourage peer support..

    Even just something basic like acknowledging someone’s problem and saying u are thinking of them can mean a lot :)

    @dancertori the others here have said it perfectly. I understand what your saying about missing things as at times chat can go quite fast even but we are all there to support you and if you miss something just ask them to repeat it, no one will get angry with you for that. Having dyslexia and starting straight into chat is really hard its fast some night but we can all support you. A tip I've found if I had a long day and my dyslexia is playing up I use chrome on my phone and log into chat and it makes it easier to scroll back through the chat to read comments (just dont put your phone on standby as you clear the chat by doing that) it is fustraighing some night when there is 12 in the room but no one will dismiss you for asking for some help. If there is something bothering you tonight and you need some support pop a post up on health & wellbeing and we can support you the best way we can. 

    Speak soon

    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.
