• Hi - if you have tried to donate and found that it hasn't worked please can you hit me up in PM? (Freya) I am trying to figure out with paypal what the issue is and they are asking for more data. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone. Thank you so much :)
  • Hi - It is possible that I have figured out part of the problem with the donations. I believe that if you try to use paypal balance or your debit/credit card that should work now. Bank transfer still seems glitchy. If you try with a card and it fails please can you let me know? Fingers crossed that part is resolved though. Thanks so much for the support - Freya

I Have a Question...

Sometimes things happen that make us wonder how or why but leave us too embarrassed to seek advice; don't be afraid, ask your questions here. This forum is for asking questions that you may not be able to ask anyone in "real life".

Rants will be moved to Let It All Out forum and evocative threads that could potentially turn into flames will be moved to the Soap Box forum.

I Need Empathy and Compassion (No advice wanted)

Sometimes all you need is to be heard - to tell your story and know that it was read and that people care. This forum is for people not ready yet to be given practical advice but who need to know that people care about them and are willing to support them when they do reach that stage. Please do not offer advice or suggestions, just let members know you heard and care.

Please choose which sub forum to post in depending on what stage of life you feel you are at. We have intentionally not included age guidelines because age is "just a number".
