    No problem Laura! There is a strong individual in every person and you definitely are! Posting your concerns on the threads can be daunting especially when you're having to re-live it sometimes by thinking about it is really hard but you managed to push through it all. That's the first sign of a strong individual! I will ask a supervisor asap to PM you. As it is a little late at the moment, they may...

    replied to Long Distance Relationship
    Hey Becky,

    Welcome to the boards!

    It can be pretty tough when you're going through an LDR, however I guess in this situation it's a little better that it won't always be an LDR but rather part time! With that being said there are ways of trying to make it as least hard as possible! We aren't relationships experts and I haven't personally been in an LDR but things which may...

    Hey KaydenK,

    It's nice to hear from you again! I've read what you wrote on the other thread too and just want you to know that you're incredibly brave, and as Mike said, you're a valued member of this community! It sounds like you're going through a really tough time at the moment which may be why the drinking has increased. Often people use substances such as alcohol as a coping mechanism,...

    Hey Aidan,

    Thank you for sharing this. Laura is very strong to want to post this and it's great that she's opening up! This is what the forum is for and we can provide as much support and signpost her as best as possible. We aren't experts here s we can't give advice for things like depression etc... But we do have a few links which really help! Laura what you are going through seems...

  • Hey Laura,
    Well done for doing that, you're very brave! Not a lot of people do that so you should be very proud of yourself! I personally think you can pull anything off if you wear it with confidence! Own the short hair and make it your own style! Just remember that it grows back and it probably wont take long to grow back either! Hope you're feeling a bit better about it today. Could just...

    Hey Jess,
    It can be a shock of course to see these things especially when family members are involved! What Shaunie said is all really good advice! It may be good for her to know that you're there for her and maybe let her open up to you as much as she's comfortable with and then work your way up. It may be a little overwhelming if it's all spoken about in panic etc... With that being said,...

    It's okay horsemad! Don't worry about it, you can always meet at any other time! It's hard, but it could be good for now to maybe try to get your mind off it, maybe watch a movie?

    Hey Kayden,
    Would you perhaps feel comfortable e-mailing your worker to tell her what's going on? May be good to let off some steam? Have you done anything nice today?

    Hey Kayden,
    You've opened up a lot and we're really proud of you. Especially since you already mentioned it's difficult for you so honestly well done, you should be so proud of yourself. You're a really strong individual! These thoughts are normal to have, but of course it doesn't mean it's good to have them since it's clearly affecting you! It may be good to look at talking to someone anonymously,...

  • That's always a tough situation, and you're right that loads of people are faced with that problem. Unfortunately there isn't much people can do about that, since consent is key. There are people who are willing to have casual sex, not necessarily just in a relationship, but in this case it's always important to communicate.

    Hey Kayden,
    I'm really sorry for what you're going through at the moment! You say that you wish you could say what is on your mind, but in a way you are; right here! It's always good to start with baby steps. And to post it all here is a great place to start. We are all here for you and are always there to hear you out! It's completely understandable that you find it difficult to speak out about...

  • Hey Frankiesays,
    You're right that the legal age to have sex is 16. The most important thing when thinking about having sex is that you and the person you want to have sex with are both on the same page and both want to have sex. There isn't really a right time to have sex, it's something which people differ in. Some may not feel comfortable until they're in their 20s, others may be perfectly...

    Hey Laura,

    Hope you're feeling better today! What you're going through is really tough so really well done for coming on here and posting about it! Really brave of you <3 Try not to feel like everything depends on you because both you and your whole family deserve to feel happy. It's perfectly normal to feel the way you are, as most people would in this situation, but your mental health...

    replied to I feel confusing, possible trigger?
    I understand completely how you feel with the university work. It can get quite hectic. Maybe you could do with some more social interaction if you're up for that? Go out with friends, and exercise is also often helpful if you can find time for it!

    Hey Kayden,
