    replied to Film Club, Plan of action!
    Love this idea!!! Fortnightly would be often enough in my opinion- but any longer than a month between films would be a bit of a stretch for me

    But don't know about anyone else!!! Just get this started soon and I don't care!

    Speaking of dogs, going to view some puppies today. So excited!

    Really want a black lab to go with the chocolate and fox red labs we already have. But this'll be the first dog that will actually be MINE. Ahhhhh!!! Can't wait!!!

    No, nothing comes close to a dog, sorry Mica : )

    In all seriousness, any pet really is fantastic. Our cat Porridge (guess what colour she is haha) loves a stroke from, and purrs to, me and my dad, but detests my mum. She was a very nervous kitten- abused by her first 'owner'- but she's mothered an adorable litter and now spends her days outside doing cat things.

    But dogs...

    Aw, that's lovely 😊
    There's a special place in my heart for dogs in particular, I know other animals make great pets- but nothing comes close to a dog

    Pets + mental health

    Hi guys,
    So, I have depression for those of you who don't know- and I just took my fat labradors for a walk because it's a nice-ish day, and I almost forgot about my problems for a good hour or so. This doesn't happen when I walk. It just happens when I walk with the dogs.

    Then it got me thinking. Pets can love a person unconditionally in ways even another person can't. They don't...

    replied to Balancing mental health and work
    Since my work experience, I'm not sure I could ever work again. I can't, and I don't want to. I wasn't ready for it, and I still aren't. I don't know what else I need to be ready, I just feel like I'm completely unprepared.

    The hours, the repetition, the people, the stress; that's bad enough when you have perfect mental health, but it's perpetual hell when you don't. I can honestly say...

    No problem Laura, glad to help! You owe me one now, my fingers hurt after that! Nah, just kidding, but thanks for saying you'd help me if I needed it too.

    Hi Drea, I know my wellbeing's important too, I'll probably have something to say about it tomorrow after I see my counselor. They want an emergency meeting, they aren't too happy at the drinking or the self-harm. I'm probably in trouble,...

    That's a lot of links, I hope she finds something that works for her. And I do try to be a good friend, though I know it isnt my job to try and 'fix' anybody.

    Anyway, thank you very much for the reply.

    Laura12345 needs support

    Laura has been through a lot, recently and not so recently, and she wanted to make a post about everything but didn't feel that she could. She's really struggling to go on. So I said I'd do it for her instead if she wanted. As much as this is for her, it's for me as well as I know I alone can't help her, and I want to get her help after everything she's done for me too. Hope you don't mind this, Laura....

    replied to Cutting, Self Harm
    You can't really hide it I'm afraid, unless you want to wear loads of bands or fake an injury with a bandage or something.

    Embrace it; it's part of you, and I'm gonna merge what Lostsense and Shaunie said; scars tell your story of how strong you are. I'd listen to those two- they sound 'ard. If you were open about your cutting to your parents, you would have them to turn to and could...

    Hi James,

    Not doing too well. Just self harmed, nearly fainted and had a cold shower for a good hour or so.

    I'm still confused about which side of me is actually me, and which side of me is the alter-ego. I felt so hopeful and positive last week, and now I feel like I've erased all of my progress.

    Im getting a letter for an appointment with a psychiatrist, I...

    That's okay Laura 😊

    If you do decide you want to find them, the first place to look would be at your birth certificate. If you don't have it, you can order a copy from the GRO, but this will cost you about 10. Not sure if your birth certificate will be online yet, they only digitize older birth certificates normally. But anyway, that's just if you want to find your parents. It's...

    Hi Laura,

    It must be tough being reminded of your childhood at times that are supposed to be happy. Here for you!

    I suppose it's pretty normal to feel like this, especially now that you're old enough to go and find them if you want to. You can always search for your birth records to find who they are, but you don't have to take it any further.

    It'd be wrong...

    I haven't got a clue. It might be for all I know. I don't know what it actually says on my records, my counsellor just told me all it would say is depression. She might be wrong, she isn't a medical professional, I don't know if she can see my records anyway. And I don't get to choose when I see a psychiatrist, the psychiatrist just sees me every month or so for a review. So we'll see, no sooner than...

    I'd suspected social anxiety since I ever knew what it was. This was when a friend of mine was diagnosed with it. I've told my counsellor and my psychiatrist about my feelings before, and they agreed on social phobia, but they haven't talked about it since. And when I asked my counsellor what was official and what was on my medical records, she said depression. I'm confused, but I see her monday...
