    Hey DB,

    That’s lovely about the TT and the special needs folk, do try and get back to that :)

    I’ve read quite a few of the ‘Wolf’s posts and can understand your missing her. I guess it’s the not knowing? I belong to quite few online forums, for various interests, and for many years. One can develop friendships, without ever meeting that individual in real life, and those friendships can be quite meaningful. I have lost one or two due to illness along the way,, and it is a very strange feeling.

    Hugs to you DB, cheers M

    Hi DB,

    Thank you for the lovely words :) You are a very warm, affectionate soul.

    The uncertainty must be difficult. Not knowing how things are and “guessing” must be painful and worrying...I know you’ve shed many tears...Starwolf is a very special person and a blessing in yours (and many others) life.

    You sound so determined to get on top of your depression. I admire your spirit.

    Thank you for asking :) I have just been thinking and slowly finding my feet again. Finding solace in unexpected things like observations of fog, cloudy skies, etc plus music, art, etc. Have been needing time to myself so haven’t been socialising much in the offline realm. Sometimes I need a bit of solitude to regroup.

    Comforting soul hugs,

    Pepper xoxo

    Daghhh the longer you're away Rock-Starwolf the more worried. Clearly things aren't good & you said you didnt expect to last this long. I'm missing you terribly but not giving up on you yet. Hospital?

    Selfish yeah. I need you Rock, when you're around I feel secure & safe. Please b ok. 😢

    I asked MODS to check if they're able, haven't heard back so dunno

    I'm ok but crying a bit. Was reading something here (forums) that got to me & think wearing down with friggen pain again & this bout neck/shoulders/back isnt near as bad as others but stil BLOODY painful trying not to but at times need strong pain meds. All i bloody did was grocery shopping & had help paying for it. Annoyed.

    Pain specialist soon, not worried but know its not gunna be good news.

    Rock if i dont come here & talk to you some days plz know you're in my thoughts a lot, that won't change. You make such a difference.

    Sending love, care & eternal frienship (( soul hugs )) magic lady xx

    Thoughtful thx Starts darlin thats ok tho im here for yous too & on your thread as well

    Yeah im calm but upset DAMN not knowing tho. In limbo

    Yeah you feel same she's been with us all the way. Its hurting. Getting bit scared. Fear losing people i love

    Survival: A thought is only that... until we think more about it... then react with feeling something.

    Emotions are feelings.

    Probs healthy to feel. The trick would be not allowing painful thoughts to keep repeating, that's where depression thrives.

    Think, acknowledge, feel, allow other thoughts in.

    Practice

    Hey DB,

    What do you do to chill out? Do you like music? Meditate? If you like music, my favourite Adelaide band reformed for a gig, in a church with a great big rainbow flag. Beautiful harmonies and meaningful songs.Did me the worl of good to go see them and they live streamed it, so it’s available on FB. If your data will allow it google fruit trio - that should bring theirFB page up for you - 10 mins will soothe you :)

    Sparrow Update: Well, he flew into the nest with some stuff, and a lady flew in too. She exited stage left very quickly - must be a hovel in there, doubt he’s done any housekeeping!! I wait for further developments.

    Hope Mods are able to find out some news about ‘Wolf - it’s the not knowing that’s causing you pain, hugs Mathy xx

    Rock thought you'd be keen to hear how dog sitting went.

    Yeah I knew labs have beautiful nature, shes a darling, let her off lead when safe to do so on dirt tracks (loved walkin em even tho daily that place was trying to kill me, was determined to deck me but recovered everytime stoked)& ttwice she bolted on me couldnt get her back tho well trained not as you know if foods calling her. So on lead from then & ya cant keep eye out for snakes as well when shes off lead let alone reluctant to take eyes off every damned step, lose rocks gravel etc but cool work out. Different hill walks to hear oh goin back Xmas again dear guys paying fare again. Good of them aye.

    So not demanding at all apart from pogo jumping at walk time & food time shes so lovable.

    You'll love this at random i'd dance if we had music on, she'd be standing really close looking or sometimes lay in front & im sure one time she was moving with me dancing the gorgeous. Such a treasure. Very well loved very cared for

    How are you dear RockStar wolf? Rhetorical you'll come back when you're able

    Love (( soul ))

    Mathy yeah not knowing's a beast

    Thx hun re: mods im checkin emails daily & more xx

    Hi DB,

    I always appreciate your kindness and caring. Thank you :)

    Your back/neck/shoulder pain sounds awful. It must affect so many aspects of your life and I really hope the specialist can help you manage the pain.

    I know you’re missing Starwolf and extremely concerned. Your love and friendship always shows. I bet if she read the dog sitting story, she would have loved it. Labradors are gorgeous with such a gentle nature.

    Sending comforting soul hugs,

    Pepper xoxo

    Starwolf said:

    Health sliding downhill but expected so I'm OK with it, just not much oomph to do anything. Which explains my reduced interactions around the forums. Still checking on how people are

    Hey RockStar this is biggy part of my concern for you, concern's an understatement.

    I figure whatever you're going through isnt good i know you said in a following reply your at peace which yes that's great but....tearing again Rock. You mean so much (( thankyou for everything )) but you'll pull through wont you?

    I've got patience & ssshhh crying

    Know you're in my thoughts sooo often. I never forget good people.

    Hey your fitness will pull you through

    Love good lady missing you terribly Rockstar xx & (( soul ))

    Been tired lot lately dunno why & sleeping lot, havent walked last 3 days did ome this eve.

    Been emotional fair bit lately, really hurting & missing late partner, crying in bits here & there, can handle this in comparison to BP lows that are tragic but not feeling particularly great.

    Feeling bit hurt from comment here not this thread) & its not even how it is, same happened while ago.

    Hey demonblaster,

    After reading how you are feeling just wanted to reach out so you know someone's listening. I also don't always get stuff done and have been through multiple griefs. I like your attitude, you sound strong. Also, I think you do really well with what you write to people. You know feelings and I think you reach people.

    I think you are great.

    Hi DB,

    monkey_magic worded it very compassionately. Lovely post...

    You have a very big heart, DB. Hugely empathic. You love deeply and feel deeply...don’t do things by “halves.” Alas, that also means hurting deeply too...

    Your late partner was very special to you. The love of your life if I remember correctly. It must be so painful sometimes...

    Empathic soul hugs,

    Pepper xoxo
