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...

  • (RE)Introduction!


    You may wonder, why on earth are you doing an introduction when you have 289 posts and have been here for over a year? Don't worry, I've not gone mad I've just changed my username... and okay... it looks like it's confusing a fair few of you! Plus, I went back today and read my first introduction... urgh please no! NO NO NO!

    I asked for my name changed because the first 4 letters in it were my real name... the name everyone in non-internet life calls me. When I was younger, I often didn't think about online ID... and so when signing up for websites often did this. I'm on many support sites, and over the last year of so have been... hmm... making my ID less obvious y'know what I mean? (with the uncommon name 'n' all).

    So. Basically. I though it was about time to do the same thing on here... and begin using my sort of internet name (Eleanor) on here. Similar... no one ever calls me that in real life either so less obviously me if someone I knew happened to be on here (PS I don't know of anyone who I know on here ha).

    So... I'm Eleanor. I'm 14 (totally not old enough to be doing this ha) and I am Scottish. I like listening to music and I love to rant online! Oh... and I love chocolate too and coffee!

    Thank you for reading! I bet you in a year I'll look back and go "PLEASE NO! NO NO NO!" To this introduction too!

    I have a feeling you might look back on this in sooner than a year and go "PLEASE NO! NO NO NO!" knowing you lol
    SUCCESS is not final, FAILURE is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts
