Home Introduce Yourself

Hi, I'm Mimi!

mimimimi Posts: 20 Boards Initiate
I joined The Mix today. I discovered the group chat and everyone was so friendly! At first I was worried I wouldn't fit in because everyone seemed to know each other already but I felt very welcomed so thank you to everyone in general chat tonight!
I have really been struggling with my mental health for a while and never had very good support be that through friends or professional help. I hope this can be a good space for me. I already feel a little less lonely than I did before I joined so that's a good start!
I have a dog called Sam and I am a student. I have lots of house plants. I love reading, musicals, art galleries, exploring new cities and I love the beach! I love getting to know new people and I look forward to joining in more here! 

Peace begins with a smile :)

    Aw welcome Mimi! 

    I'm glad chat went so well, it's important to note that everyone felt the same way too even I did at one point! 

    But everyone is welcome and fits in x

    Sorry to hear about the struggle with mental health but I hope this space can provide you with a bit of company during these uncertain times as well as support.

    Any thing you want to talk about just make a thread and we will listen :)

    Yes @Millie2787 I do have plants growing!

    Mimi all my plants are outside based! I have sunflowers a friend brought me, trying to grow a tree, green beans, sweet corn, different herbs!
    What are you growing at the moment?

    Ahhh thank you everyone! So happy to see all your responses! 

    @BubblesGoesBoo I recently read How to stop time by Matt Haig and it was really good! I'd love to live on an island, in in the midlands so the furthest away from beaches that I could ☹️
    @GreenTea I have lots of succulents and cacti inside, but I've also just started growing some sunflowers too and I have 3 really tall ones! I have raspberries and herbs and lots of flowers growing outside. My favourites are the forget-me-nots. 

    Thank you everyone for being so friendly!! 😊
