    What I love about this place is that I can come here at almost any time of the day/night upset or needing help/advice with the kiddos and there is always someone there. With awesome support and advice. Who has been through whatever I have so understands.

    I really appreciate that bubhub has opened my mind to how other people live/think/feel and the problems/issues that people are faced with. It has definitely made me a more empathetic person. It has also made me realise how privileged I am to have good parents and ILs (the sh*t my MIL thread has horrified me on many occasion), a helpful partner and healthy child.

    Having something to do, people to talk to when awake at crazy hours while I'm feeding DD has really helped with my sanity.

    I have been on Bubhub since 2008 I think (under my old username) and it always been a great place for support and advice. There have been some lovely hubbers who have definitely been a support to me over the years. Some aren't on here much anymore but that's okay because there is definitely a lot of great people who have taken their place.

    The girls in the same sex parents thread have been such an amazing support over the last six months. We have had a hard time TTC and now that DW is pregnant, everyone is so happy for us.

    I have tried another forum but I didn't even last a week. I always come back here.

    I'm hoping I can get back into bubhub again and post more but sometimes it's hard when I'm not the pregnant one and our bub isn't here yet

    This place has helped me accept that having an elective cesar has not made me any less of a mother. If it wasnt for some members I think I would never have been ok with the way I had my dd.
    The secret santa thread last year was another great moment, the fact that someone we have never met would take time out of their day to get someone a gift was just great. My gift still brings a smile to my face.

    I enjoy reading the debate threads and value the opinions on a few members that have been around a while.

    Many funny moments. Work place toilet etiquette made me laugh so hard.
    @littleriv of course I notice you! And definitely remember our weightloss threads together. I think of you often and had no idea that my posts were so helpful and encouraging, that's wonderful to hear 😃 And you introduced me to those green soups! You saved me, too, you were my rock during those four week challenges.
    Isn't it funny how we just assume that we're being overlooked or going unnoticed when in actual fact it's the total opposite? I've never forgotten our chats, littleriv and I'm just blown away by what you've said, you've made my night 😃

    The Hub introduced me to some of the most awesome ladies I've ever 'met', we've been together for over 6 years now, and I consider my DIG'ers some of my most special friends.
    It's helped me with perspective, keeping myself on track, and knowing I'm not alone.

    My daughter told me to join bubhub. She was very active for a long time here, but not so much now. I enjoy the companionship, and I have changed my opinions on many topics. I am really enjoying this thread. It is important to realise that there are real people behind the screens, and what we say can have a huge impact, for better or for harm. hugs, marie.

    Like a few other people have said, Bubhub has really helped me to accept opinions other than my own. It's definitely taught me tolerance, to be more empathetic and so many people here, going through so much, have really humbled me.

    I've had some amazing ladies help me through ttc, IVF and my many moments of panic. Knowing there are people you don't even know IRL that are rooting for you, celebrating successes with you and giving you their support in the low times is just incredible. I suffer from anxiety and in all honesty, bubhub has become the first place I turn to. I know that here I'll find awesome people who'll encourage me, share their experiences and make me feel as though I'm not alone. Not one person here has ever told me to "just stop worrying" which is a common theme IRL

    I have learned an incredible amount in my time here - on subjects I didn't even know existed. I've changed my opinion on some pretty big topics too.

    BubHub has opened my eyes and changed my opinions on many hot topics such as refugees, politics, racism etc.

    I wouldn't have called myself a redneck before but I was definitely very close minded on certain issues. I don't participate in the hot topic threads but I read along and find myself getting educated on so many different things. I think I'm a much better person now :-) Not saying that others opinions are wrong at all by the way. I really enjoy reading the debates most of the time.

    BubHub was a great support for be when I was severely depressed and also during my weight loss surgery. The amount of lovely words of support on the open forum and via PM was humbling.

    Like many others, I too sometimes feel ignored on here but I think that's just my anxiety coming out to play. It's hard to remember that this is s forum full of busy parents, all fighting their own battles, and I'm just one of many IYKWIM.

    I love BH.

    I have met some wonderful friends on here. I dont post much anymore but the friendships are still strong.

    I have received a lot of support on here when it came to my anxiety and PND issues. There were days when the support I got from here was what got me through.

    I miss the people who I only interact with on the hub while I've been inactive - but it has been necessary for me to take a giant leap back. It feels good to connect with them again.
