    Here we can all be heard for a little while. Part 3 17th Mar 16 at 5:23 PM
    This thread is a continuation of The Mental Health thread “Here we can all be heard for a little while Part 2”. The previous thread can be found here-

    I started the original thread when I was lonely and suffering with mental health issues and was lucky to find a wonderful group of amazing new friends who now mean the world to me. My name was Worried and Scared back then but with the help of everyone here I became Waves and Smiles. This thread is no longer just about me, it is about all of us and for anyone who needs mental health support, their carers and anyone who is interested in learning more. Sometimes we speak seriously, sometimes we offer gentle advice and a lot of the time we laugh together. Sometimes I write mini-novels about my experiences of living with complex mental illness. What is important is everyone here is there for each other. New posters are welcome to join in, or just lurk (we call them humming birds because they hover!) if they would prefer. This is a place without judgement or pressure, and a safe place for everyone. We try to keep abbreviations to a minimum but if there are some that you do not understand please ask.

    Sir Pugliet is our Good Mental Health pug! You may notice that he is mentioned from time to time, he is a little cuddly pug toy that was sent to me by a friend on the thread. He is something of a celebrity now!

    Hugs and warm handshakes, or finger squishes, whichever you prefer.

    Also, please take a look at the following links which offer great advice written by the lovely people at MSE!

    This door has closed and the temp position I'm in has been offered to someone who starts at the end of the month.

    Looks like I'll be resting soon.
    Don't know what I'm doing, but doing it anyway...

    The only downside is that IzHe's going to his friend's birthday tomorrow (I already had plans with the girls so have had to miss it) so will be staying there and he's been doing so much overtime this week that I feel like I've barely seen him. On the plus side, I get to have a Buffy marathon on Sunday morning without the annoying commentary

    Feedback: I didn't expand on the answers and there were candidates with more recent/current experience.

    So my experience was too long ago and I didn't waffle.

    MU - I hope you are doing ok. Did you need to call 911?

    Gingernutty - sorry interview didn't go your way, are you registered with lots of employment agencies? If not is that something worth doing?

    I'm still away! The first hotel was nice so stretched it to two nights and then didn't seem worth driving back in between. Last night we stayed in a different place that was "ok". Tonight we are in a B&B which seems ok so far. I'm a bit stressed because when I booked I paid by PayPal and had it confirmed. When we arrived the guy showed us to the room and said we pay in the morning. I said I'm sure I've paid in full and he said it just a holding charge, I was sure it wasn't but didn't like to speak up. After he left I checked online and both my PayPal and the booking website says I've paid in full. DH says that's no problem just tell the guy tomorrow morning but I'm getting stressed because what if he says it isn't I know that sounds daft as I have it in writing but I always get afraid of confrontation and not being believed.

    Anyway I hope you all are doing ok, hugs if anyone needs them x
