Hi dear Elizabeth Croixy and everyone ☺
So much going on eh darl.
I think depression and sleep deprivation work together. Because we're worried anxious or depressed our minds are focusing on the causes in turn rising stress levels which makes for troubled and lack of sleep as you know.
Something that can help with stress is not thinking too much how we feel which sinks us more. Directing that focus on what can be done like what you were saying about needing to be able to concentrate on hubbies hospital needs.
Yes in hard times like this our mind does keep going back to the problems. What you can do is gently acknowledge it and tell yourself you'll think about it later. Repeat process 548 times. Annoying eh but each time even for a few seconds is a different mode of thought away from pain.
I very much hope it goes smoothly in hospital dear people and that some easier living results from hubbies stay. What an ordeal for you both.
Ouch that cobweb wouldn't have been good at all poor thing. If it happens again rinse it which you might have done and away from the nose side of the eye. Hope it's better hun struth.
Darls you did in exhaustion very well getting anything done. You achieved something that seemed like you couldn't. Well done. Ok if it was a small amount which means a bit less to do later.
Just wondering if the GP might know of somewhere that people volunteer help to people in need. Wether they could do some housework/ lawns cooking etc. I did some home visiting and people can shop too.
Depression makes it very difficult to see good or have pleasure. I suggest strongly dear soul don't stop trying or to be thinking of good memories or moments otherwise there's no chance of a spark like our dear Croixy gave about Wales. Great scene and it does sound really nice.
We just got a calendar today from the chemist with gorgeous world scenery. There's many countries that have lovely bright coloured houses. It's one of a few ways of seeing the worlds beauty.
Incidentally just a touch of trivia I find interesting. They use some cobwebs for healing wounds I've heard. Reminded me when you had some in your eye. Bet that didn't feel healing though 😉
You're clearly a very diligent caring loyal soul Elizabeth. You're doing a great job good lady (hand on your shoulder ☺)
I really hope soon your poor exhausted body can give in to a lot of quality sleep.
Wishing you both the best outcomes with care and friendship ⚘
