    So lovely to have you with us @ella!
    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 ❤

    Welcome, im sure you'll have a wonderful time (if not sometimes stressful) here.

    I appear a couple of times a year, and then disappear just as quickly, used to be here much more frequent tho

    You have a kitty!!!!!!! Yay. I have 3. Great to have you here. It`s even better to see that you`re a neurodiversity advocate, especially as I am neurodiverse and feel as though there needs to be more awareness and understanding of the neurodiverse community and helping them to feel listened to and valued.

    @Dancer hey! Aww I am jealous you have three cats- I would love to have more but I'm not sure my cat would thrive being a big sister🤣 What are your cats called? Mine is called Custard!

    I agree that there needs to more awareness around neurodiversity! Out of interest, is there anything you would like to see us doing at The Mix to show the neurodiverse community we are here to listen? Not a problem if you don't have any ideas right now- our DMs are always open if you come up with anything! <3

    @ella Custard is such a cute name for a cat! <3
