    Stepping back as Admin

    As a few of you know I am very much struggling with my own mental health.

    All of the admins and moderators suffer from mental health problems too we are not immune especially when things are happening on the forum.

    and to be honest dealing with some of the arguments and threads on here is making me worse.... sometimes it distracts me and other times it makes me worse.

    So I have decided that for now I am going to step down as a visible admin on the forum for a couple of weeks until my brain has healed a little.

    I need to look after ME rather than the 1,056 active members on here.

    I will be in the background and occasionally you may see me pop up deleting threads from time to time and I will still be an admin but just taking a back seat While I get my head together...

    As Arnie says..... I will be back!!!!

    V honey you need to take care of yourself first and foremost.

    It would be nice if people thought a bit how comments can affect others.

    As always we will support you in whatever you decide as far as involvement on the forum and chat is concerned.

    Take care hun, and get this beat.

    As a member going through a relapse myself, it is the right thing to do.
    The body and brain needs to repair and you can't do that if you are surrounded by stressful situations.
    Try to find some relaxing hobbies are just chill on the sofa with a nice mug of hot chocolate.
    Sending you hugs.

    My best wishes to you, Venus. It must be very hard not to get affected by some of the posts on here especially when you are unwell yourself. I hope you find some respite and peace very soon away from the stresses of NMP xx
