    Aah Dodie! She's so wonderful. (may or may not be crushing on her pretty hard)

    Edit: amusingly, as I wrote this post, I was listening to this.

    Day 6: I'm not the most sociable person ever and tend to keep myself to myself, but I'm trying to push myself to meet new people and get out more. I think it should be good for me. ...

    Hey Shaunie,

    I've taken down your last few posts as they were a little too much for the boards - I hope that's okay. I can't imagine what it's like feeling so isolated with all those intense thoughts.

    How are you this morning? Do you feel safe at the moment? If you feel you're at breaking point then remember Samaritans or Papyrus are always there ready to talk. You can...

    Haa, I ran into that confusion too - tried to input the text code without realising. It is a little confusing!



    I remember reading something about it on their website - the reason they distribute invite codes separately is to control their server load. I guess because they're still quite small, they need to make sure they have the capacity to handle everyone who signs up....

    Yep - so once you sign up they give you an invitation code within 24 hours. It's still in beta but you can download it and use it....

    started a topic App: Replika

    App: Replika

    Has anyone ever heard of/used Replika?

    It's an app - an AI 'friend' that learns about you and grows as you talk to it. What's really cool is that it creates journal entries for you from the conversations you have. For example, if you've had a bad day you can have a conversation about that and it'll note down what you talk about. It's still in beta at the moment but it seems to work quite...

    Hey Shaunie,

    I know you said you were going to try and sleep things off - how you feeling now? I hope you managed to get through the night okay.

    It may not feel like it, but the fact that you're posting here and talking with us is amazing. Despite having all those feelings about yourself, you're still managing to open up to everyone here and find the energy and courage to...

    Hey Jersey, and welcome to the community.

    Firstly I just want to say well done for posting here. It's not always easy and offloading your thoughts and feelings like that can take a lot of energy and courage. I hope you found some relief in writing things out - it looks like you've had a rough time of it recently, by all accounts!

    It really sounds like you've been on...

    replied to Anxiety and need some support
    Hey Emily, and welcome to the community. Glad you found us.

    As an anxious person myself, I can relate to the weird things we we and our bodies do when we're feeling anxious. Things like a dry mouth, sweating, stomach noises and butterflies are all really common. The NHS have quite a good list of physical symptoms of generalised anxiety disorder (GAD):

    No problem at all Horsemad - sometimes we all need a bit of space. Take good care.

    Hey Jake, and welcome to the community.

    Just to let you know, I removed one of the more graphic sections of your post regarding the miscarriage, just to avoid any triggers and to keep things safe for anyone else reading. I've also moved your post to our sex & rels forum as this feels like more of a support thread than an intro.

    It's great to see you posting...

    replied to When to go to A&E.
    Great advice from Salix alba - particularly the bit in bold.

    People tend to advise going to A&E because it is the best place to be if you're at that breaking point with self-harm and might need medical attention, and they usually have to suggest going somewhere that can look after you in the worst case. But I can totally understand why it might feel a bit pointless if you're...

  • Oh, oops! Edited now. I came in late today so maybe I'm still waking up.

    Aaah no Meggles - maybe these are too niche.
