I'm new here - what is Topic Tuesday?

Topic Tuesday runs from 7pm - 9pm AEST monthly. Each month we focus on a different topic, with the session facilitated by a Community Manager or Moderator. Sometimes Topic Tuesday will feature a special guest, who is an expert in the topic.

The first post of the thread (this one) will give you an idea of what the topic is and what will be covered.

 

How do I get involved?

Topic Tuesday takes place right here! It's text based, so no software is needed. During the session, to keep up with the latest posts hit the 'refresh' button on your browser for the latest posts (it doesn't automatically update). Keep an eye for page numbers at the top & bottom of the page, and jump to the highest page number for the most recent post.

 

Throughout the session, the facilitator will put questions out for you to answer, usually asking for your own experience on the topic. To contribute to the session, just hit the 'reply' button and share your thoughts. No answers are right or wrong and everyone is welcome to get involved.

  • AEDT- 7pm
  • AEST- 6pm
  • ACDT- 6:30pm
  • ACST- 5:30pm
  • WST- 4pm

No doubt, this can be a stressful time of year for some; but I hope that after tonight we will all feel a little less alone in tackling the ins and outs of xmas activities. Smiley Very Happy

 

I will just wait a few minutes for members to settle in, then we will kick off with discussion point one!

Hi @nashy  Reasonable. Had a lazy day because I needed it. Had a hard session yesterday with counsellor and was tired and mucle sore. But was given the most beautiful journalling book with hidden bits in the beautiful embossed cover picture. Spent a couple hours studying it and writing the story of the people in the pictures

Hi @nashy @cutiepiekitty

Hi everyone.

Struggling with dissociation, & overwhelm.

A tough day, hopefully with a good positive focus (at the end of it) - this discussion!
