Good to see you Doolsy 🤗 hi everyone ☺
A gorgeous little elderly lady one day who I was nursing. I'm not sure who made the joke and we laughed. Her words of wisdom I'll never forget.
"Never lose your sense of humour"
Amazing lady amidst how you're feeling you still can see the funny side of life. I laughed at the image of the trees 😂 can just see the sticks that once were. They'd turn into Weeping Willows 😅
Hun your lights dull at the moment but the fires 🔥 still burning. Hold onto it darl.
I've been racking my brain how in the last few mths I've pulled up enough to get through from where you are. The more I think I think it was firm no nonsense self talk. " I don't want to feel this way, it'll pass, I CAN and will get out of this".
Doolsy I had lunch with a besty yesterday, had as always a really good day. I've been thinking to go a tiny radical with a hair style, she cut my hair looks good. Are you in a position you could get your hair done, it's uplifting.
Mind you I've got a shocker of a bed head atm 😨 looking in parts like my hairs been electrocuted at every angle. She told me about a make shift gel, water and sugar to make a sticky substance. If I'm walking around with an ant 🐜 nest in my head I'll know why.
Oh thanks for the colonoscopy offer but might pass this time 😄
Darl are you up to ringing here or lifeline. Alternatively do you think it could help to write down how you feel, difficult very in this headspace but not impossible to think about why you feel so bad without feeling it. I'm in nappies with this but had some success by as soon as I feel sadness rise to a thought I say ..
no.. then some deep breaths only focusing on that..then same only focus objectively on the task at hand.
Everytime we acknowledge how we feel which that parts ok but not when it makes us feel emotional and depressed. What can we do about it.
You're an incredible lady Mrs Doolsy I truly am so sorry you're hurting so much and have so much frustration to deal with.
I'm looking at your GP appt as a new leaf being turned. Tell them everything Doolsy lovey, at this stage you need as much help as you can get.
You always will have strong support love and care in this community dear friend. We and many people in real life need you.
Thanks for being in touch.
