Post of The Month (July)

Aidan is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Lucie,

You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate...

      We know it's not a straight forward decision, it never is. But if it's the right choice for you right now, then don't feel bad about it.

      I suppose it's normal to be scared? Abortions are safe, but I'm guessing that's not all you're worried about.

      We'll be here to support you always : )

        its something i keep trying to put to the back of my mind but i can't and im finding it so hard. i keep breaking down in tears but i know its the right decision. if i was in a better situation myself i would keep it but theirs no way i can raise a child right now. its such a heartbreaking and difficult decision and im so so so scared of whats to come. i really wish i never face this situation again becuase im struggling so much. Ive had the urges to self harm, ive started to really really hate myself again and for sure not eating much at all.ive even thought about ending my own life.. its just so hard with all the stress i have going on already.. this.. this has pushed me over the edge

          Hi Evie Rose. I know you must be finding this so hard but remember people are always here if you need anything. Sorry to hear that you keep breaking down in tears about it but if you know its the right decision then there is nothing to worry about. I felt exactly the same when I made the decision and I was scared of doing it too. It is still hard for me even after it happened. I hope you don't end up with this situation again! I lost my first child and that's why I felt I couldn't have another child. I'm always here for you x Please don't harm yourself and please continue to eat as you don't want to make youre health worse. I know for a fact what ive been through has been hard and I did stop myself eating and now I'm underweight and could end up back into hospital anytime soon. I'm always here if you need to open up about anything, take care x

            Evie, this must be so overwhelming for you. Sending lots of love : )

            Even if it is the right decision, I know it doesn't make it any easier, but I hope it makes you feel better knowing there are people to support you through it. You always have us, and also charities like Brook if we aren't enough. Don't be scared to turn to your family or friends for support.

            Please, I know you're stressed by everything going on, but always doing something will keep you distracted from these urges. Don't hate yourself, please. And you aren't a bad person for going through with this. All these feelings wouldn't dissappear just because you have a child, so getting an abortion was probably the best thing you could have done. I would have done the same, if I was in your shoes.

            Hope you're okay, but it's perfectly fine not to be. How are you doing now?

                  Sorry I didn't reply yesterday, I was having a bit of a 'can't do this anymore' moment too.

                  We're always here for you. And you can do it. You're so much stronger than you think you are. And we can't be strong all of the time anyway. I'm sure Laura would really want to reply as well, if only she hadn't ended up in A&E with her foot again.

                  Always here if you want to talk, really hope things get better for you soon

                    ​Hi Aidan- I'm here for you as well Aidan. I'm here for you and Evie Rose right now. What a nice reply and I hope it helps EvieRose. All I'm going to say is that we cant always be strong everyone has a minute when things get tough. Don't worry about me being in A and E I'm fine.
