      Thank you @Capulet @MeBeMary and @abhaya for your support. Im getting there slowly. Hopefully finish the content by the end of the week. It has been a tough one.

  15. @Free4ever and @Tee06 and ALL members with message issues Im sorry that you can not access messages and not talk directly to your AS friends. I wanted to let you know that I have set up a thread for chat and support while messages are down 🧡 B
  16. @Capulet I am not complaining just letting you know. I do not have the options to access my messages, notifications or my profile on my mobile but I do have these options on my laptop - both using chrome. I have tried logging out and back in again on my phone which wasn't easy when you cant access you own profile! it is still not working I know that others are also not getting access to these at all, despite downloading other browsers. Anyway, really - IT IS JUST SO GOOD TO HAVE AS BACK. Thank you so much for all that you have done to get us back up and running again. 🧡 B
  17. So glad to be back! I missed you all!

      No problem, sounds good, honest I'm not doing so great and almost everyone has covid so yeah it's sucks and family are starting to annoy me.

    3. BrightSide

      @Free2Flyoh no, did you get it too? I really hope all of your symptoms stay mild! :getwell: 

      It must be hard all cooped up together, keep coming here for company and distraction, video call and phone other friends and family so that you do not feel so trapped and stuck talking to the same people.

      I don't really know, at night time I get like flem on my chest but during the day I'm usually fine, it's a very strange virus cause one member of the family had symptoms for two days then all of a sudden their better again, but yeah definitely a strange virus.

      It is hard, mainly cause certain siblings can't go a day without annoying someone, so far we've only had one person that's been cleared so they can go out place everyone else in the house has to remain in.

      I don't oftenly talk about it but one of my hobbies is radio communications so hints I can't go out places I just sit and talk on the radio, I don't really have any friends I can video call but yeah that's how it's been here.

      Hopefully all is good in your town and home 🙂.

  22. I AM going to find me again. Today Im not having any of it, I accept how things make me feel with compassion and Im fighting back! I guess it is going to be a new me, one that is honest with herself and those close to her about her pain. This is not going to take me down with it - HE does not get to win!

  25. "You're so mean, when you talk about yourself, you were wrong, change the voices in your head, make them like you instead.
    So complicated, look happy, you'll make it, filled with so much hatred, such a tired game
    It's enough, I've done all I can think of, chased down all my demons, I've seen you do the same, oh

    Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel, like you're less than, less than perfect
    Pretty, pretty please, iIf you ever, ever feel, Like you're nothing, you are perfect to me"

    (Pink - Perfect)
