Hi everyone, This section of the forum is a little different to the others, as you may have noticed in looking around the threads. Elsewhere on the forums, we discuss some pretty heavy topics: mental health issues, thoughts of suicide, trauma, abuse, relationship breakdowns. Here is the place to come to get away from that and have a bit of fun. Distraction can be an important tool to draw on if you're finding yourself overwhelmed by distressing thoughts and feelings. As this is a section for respite from difficult topics, we will remove posts made in this section that attempt to discuss personal issues. Please use a support thread in the appropriate section for these discussions. Happy posting!

Hi everyone Was just wondering how you could get your own space without moving to own place before being financially ready. At moment am staying in cabins and apartments once in while when you just want couple nights now and then but looking for a interm solution as a backup even though will still stay in cabins. If you don't yet have a c/van to have options of a cheaper powered site what else would be a option that's as comfortable as a van and cabin that is as easy to setup and pack up. What could you do to afford a cabin more often or do it longer every time. sister is staying at parents house for a month and am realising how much am wanting own space. Not in a hurry to move out permanently just looking for interm solution. Some times it's hard but generally going ok just need someone to talk to and hoping to reach out on here. Thanks

Hi everyone. I'm Geoff and have been a dedicated Volunteer on the forums for 13 years. I am proud to have stopped some of the stigmas that are associated with mental health as well as doing my best to help others too Before my health went south I was a builder in all aspects of home construction and renovation. If you don't have a handyman around I hope I can offer you some tips that may be of help. I have had many years of experience in home renovation and will do my best to help you out if you are stuck and need some advice I hope my experience may be of help to the people on Beyond Blue and make their life a little bit better. Even if you need help with the most basic painting job or putting up a shelf I can help there too with some tips I will do my best to get back to anyone that has a question when I can as this is social yet important thread Geoff

I broke my little toe today (not the first time) and I really wanted to blame somebody and yell at them. I didn't but I hobbled around the house all day huffing and puffing and making it clear to everyone that their presence was very inconvenient. Absolutely ridiculous but even at my mature age I can behave like a child

Hey! Welcome to Friends Cafe. This is a chill and chat space for young BB members to talk about anything and everything and make new friends. When school's getting to you, uni or work has got you down, parents, partners, friends don't understand, and especially if you're feeling alone or lonely - come and relax awhile and talk to others who know just how you feel. Our minds can cause us trouble, but they can also be amazing things that imagine beauty, love and fun. This cafe has everything you can imagine. To start with it's, well, a cafe. So there's chairs and tables, comfy couches for flopping, a big screen tele, unlimited download on computers for games, Spotify (or an old-school jukebox if you prefer), every movie you can think of on instant demand ... whatever you want, it's here. Post and tell us what'd you'd like. Plus, there's an infinite menu of whatever food or drinks takes your fancy. And it's all free! To kick it off, today we have a special range of Monster Milkshakes - those thick gooey shakes topped with cronuts, chocolate bars, cake, cookies ... whatever you want. And if you can get through one of them, you're a legend (and probably feeling a little bit sick LOL!) Welcome friends.
