    Hi my gorgeous 👩‍❤️‍👩 and everyone out there ☺

    Always so good to see you precious friend 🤗

    Thank you I've been good mentally today thanks lovey.
    Cursing back for the third day has been needing meds. It's a different pain thank goodness. I end up walking leaning to the side hurts and hard to walk. Don't want to be needing these daily at all! you also need sleep from them

    Headaches on occasion are trying but I circle my head a few times like Carey in the exodus 😅 and it moves along thank goods otherwise I'd be in a shocking way.

    That'd be fantastic thanks lovely it's Down Unda. I find the babble boring but you can skip it. Cool tho overall.

    Ahh poor Betty geez she's a goer isn't she and yes very lucky not to have hurt herself badly.
    You're so kind staying for a few hrs good on you hun.
    She's lucky to have such a beautiful caring friend like you.

    Oh yukko hun 40 blaghh. Nah we're still not too bad. Was a good cooler break for a bit there. Hoping less of summer.
    😆 hose shower sounds like a plan eh.
    I want us to daily or as often as po walk in the water. I so badly need to lose weight. Poor body its so abused and love being in the water I often kinda meditate thinking of our rafts sorta in the water and stars.

    I had a lovely patch of time in mania a couple of days ago which was so nice even tho in bed. I felt ripped off not being aware of any before and boyo had the rotten parts.

    We blatted and a bit of shopping with mhw today always good told him about my BP esp the anxiety feeling god I can't hack that. Yes it feels like the chest tightens doesn't it.

    Oh the biz has come back it almost went the rotter but not quite as intense grr but damned irritating.

    We're going to a bbq tomoz with Mr gorgeouses besty and his brother that he lives with tho we're here mostly mainly cause of Covid. Must put on Suncream yikes reflection sun does some nasties.

    Hope your day was good too lovely lady ☺

    We did some serious housework it felt good having it done. Had a flat inspect but usually I dont go too far with making it immaculate.

    You're always in my heart and mind dearest friend. Love you deeply and always need you.
    Thanks for being such a beautiful friend 🤗

    👩‍❤️‍👩💜👀🤝🗯🕊🦋🍫

    Hello beautiful deebi👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩...

    How was your BBQ today?...I hope it was good..with yummy food..I have small gas BBQ on my back veranda..I don’t use it while on my own..I’m scared of using the gas bottle...I did BBQ once a couple years back..when my youngest was over for a visit..under his supervision..Does your Mr. Beautiful do the cooking or his bestie?...

    I hope you can get to daily walk in the water..keep your belief in your goals and I’m certain that you can...

    Oh I hang the hose on the cloths line with the nozzle set on shower, then will stand under it after I do mowing or even if it’s just a humid hot day...it’s so refreshing... 🚿 ..😁.

    So many Down Unda teams.?..Not sure which one..I had to wash my furs today..that’s 3 times in 2 weeks..their a flea invasion out this way..Betty’s fur baby and even Mrs. NSC 3 furs have them...I flea med my dogs..but the other don’t..sooo I’m thinking coming from next door...Who asked me for a coffee late this afternoon..so I went over for an hour....

    Wish I could help you for your biz...I think the older we get the longer it takes for us to heal...I used to heal quick, but notice now that it takes longer to heal😏..

    Enjoy your night bbff...it’s beautiful here...I’m sitting outside talking to you under the stars 🌟, with a fresh cool breeze blowing on me...Its nice but I’m going inside soon..gotta take my meds and have a cuppa tea...

    Thinking of you bbff..sending you my love, 💚 care 🦋 and super soul hugs...🌈🐻🤗...I often think of Peppy...I hope she is okay...

    Good night dearest bbff..and Mr. bbff..Take good care of each other..🕊🌱👫...🌜 👨‍👩‍👧.🌛..

    👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩Grandy..

    Hi gorgeous bbff 👩‍❤️‍👩 and all other lovely people ☺

    Because of the biz I didnt go to the bbq. I was ready to go but too uncomfortable. Over it seriously. The MHW cooked today and the other time.

    It just says that Down Unda hun. I didnt notice others not to say they're not there. I'll check it out.

    Oh the fleas sound like a nuisance yes could be coming from across the way. Not good eh. itchings enough to send you crazy isn't it.

    Nice she has you over for a cuppa. Hope it was a nice visit sweetyheart.

    Yes I constantly think of our beautiful Peppy. I don't want to pressure her to post. Dear girl I know it was rough for her.

    Really good idea turning the nozzle to shower. Yukko temps but it sounded so nice out on the veranda stars and cool breeze darl good on you ☺

    Sending a stack of eternal love dear Grandy. Oh the gorgeous furs send love to you all as well as we do. Cute Mr bbff oh Grandy he's a precious love 😍

    Ok sweetyheart hope you sleep well darlin.

    Thank you gorgeous lady SSS 😚🤗

    Hi Grandy 👩‍❤️‍👩 and everyone

    Oh Grandy this is too much the bizzo. Nearly a mth now its relentless.

    The single pill didnt work or the next one. Possible its something else. IT'S DRIVING ME BONKERS! God if its not pain it's the other symptom or both. HAD ENOUGH!

    Can't wait till Fri for a test to see if its something else. The two pills should have worked if it was what we thought. Going to try to get in earlier. Ring again tomoz. They were trying to make it easier for me with not much travel.

    This is about my 3rd big cry it's really getting to me well has from day 1.

    Big whinge just needed it. Couldnt even settle to sleep sarvo.

    SO OVER IT!

    Thanks listening 😭😢😩☹😔😯

    Beautiful Deebi👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩...your hurting so much and I’m truely so sorry...I hope you can get in before Friday...The Dr should take things more seriously..One month is just unacceptable..I hope your tests find out exactly what it is and they heal it for you😢...

    Hearing you’ve been crying is breaking my heart poor darling..I wish so much I could put my wings around you and comfort you a little....

    Maybe..just a thought..I know you don’t like to take..sleep med..so you can get a good sleep tonight...

    Please hang in their bbff..I need you..Did you know that?This will pass honey..when they get a result..they will heal you..keep believing that Deebi...Please you be okay..always.

    Breathe in the fresh air lovely bbff...slowly breathe out your hurt...in breath for fresh pure healthy air...out breathing to take out your hurts...Come on..hold my hands 🤝..look at me..and say...in fresh healthy pure air....hold..then breathe slowly out saying out with all your hurt...Hard isn’t it..when friends are hurting and we can’t be there for them...I know we’re here for each other...but how much better it would be if I was there for you...

    If your you get any worse or it gets too much for you...Please ask Mr. Deebi...to drive you to emergency at your hospital..while your their they will hopefully do the test there and then..that your Dr is going to do on Friday...

    Here for you bbff if you need to talk anytime...

    Big love and gentle baby bear hugs...💚💚🍼🐻🤗

    🤗 Thank you both for your caring supportive visits. Very appreciated.

    Phoo it's just going on and on I was in a lot of pain. It's still but not as bad atm. Wearing me down but ok.

    I saw GP about 4th day in then didn't contact until today again because he was on leave Fri.

    Our well Mr bbff's cars off the Rd atm and can't drive cause of a couple of probs that we'll be sorting out soon hoping.

    Thanks hun good thought about a sleeper I've considered that and might it drives you nuts at times when it's the other symptom that keeps you up or gets you up often.

    I'm going to bed soonish so shall pop off for now and see youse tomoz hoping.

    Yes I like that one better that you said with the helpers thanks hun 🤗

    Hope you both are ok and that tomoz you're happy with your decision beautiful Grandy.

    Hello Deebi my bbff 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩..

    How are you feeling today Deebi...been thinking about you and hoping your okay..and that your pain hasn’t increased at all....Really Hoping it’s gone though..

    Have you been able to sleep honey.?..

    Awe didn’t want to hurt you so baby bear hugs are best..but once you’re pain free..just watch out bbff the big giant bear hugs will return...

    Sad about your Mr. Deebi’s car..I hope it gets on the road soon...Please don’t forget that if you need to..you can ring the ambos if your pain gets to much for you..infections can turn pretty nasty very quickly....please take care of you🤗..

    The clouds are beautiful and peacefully drifting across the sky with white fluffy bits, different shades of grey and their shapes can be fun to draw...something to help with distracting our mind away from our hurts....I often wonder if you see the same clouds I can see or if the clouds are different from mine...

    Please Deebi...never be sorry to me about anything at all..I know you read mine as I read yours and sometimes it’s not possible to reply because our mind is being a servant to the dreaded Beasty....Its okay Deebi..please just concentrate on getting yourself healthy....

    I’m sitting with you right now...pointing to a cloud that looks like a little whale 🐳 swimming along side the cloud next to it...I can visualise you riding it...and the gentle movement putting you into a soft gentle soothing nap...

    My love to you dearest bbff..and my wishes of health and joy beautiful friend...💚🍼🐻🤗..

    👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩Grandy....💚is 4 eva..

    Grandy 👩‍❤️‍👩 and readers

    Oh darl it's too much. Has been from day dot.

    My fault I should've gone back after the second single pill didnt work. It seemed to be backing off so I didnt.

    Can't stop crying today. Reached the end of my tether.

    Doc appt 4 pm today can't do this much longer. Plan for tomoz was a swab and more so hoping today that'll be done.

    Ok mentally as in talking not depressed as such and can muck around but yeh nearly going off my nut with pain (more often than not or uncomfort) and other symptom.

    Beautiful post honey they always are. The whales gorgeous.

    Thanks for your beautiful care 🤗

    Hi beautiful Deebi👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩..

    I really hope you can get some results this time from the Dr...

    When I was about to leave the hospital a couple of years ago..on that day I had developed an infection and was given 3 single tablets to take...They didn’t work..and they didn’t work..I had swabs done etc and came back negative...was given a cream to use...I’m thinking that I’m fairy sure what your talking about and going through...The cream eventual worked....

    Awe honey..I’m so sorry that your crying so much today..I wish I was their to comfort you more then I can from kilometres away..,Please ask Mr Deebi to give you a hug from me...

    Have to get ready now to go to counselling..just wanted to wish you good luck today and I’m thinking of you..with much big love and gentle baby bear hugs...

    bbl Deebi,,,,

    Love always with my care and kindest thoughts bbff..💚🦋🌹🕊🌱🍼🐻🤗..

    Oh Grandz you wouldn't believe how bad its been pretty much 24/7, 4.5 wks.

    Public hols around Xmas stopped me jumping on it quickly.

    Same diagnosis but they're waiting to see results from swab too. ? multi resistant.

    It'll take up to 3 mths to heal fully, have to continue part of treatment for that amount of time.

    I've started the cheaper slower ointment but waiting to use the other treatment. The paperwork that comes with it theres 3 things I've had including stroke that you shouldn't take while having the hrt.

    Oh & another major sigh hun. The cause of the pain I had no choice not to do which is the whole problem with its incessant cruel nag as you know too but nows causing an immense pain lasting up to 2ish wayy too long mins.
    It's different to the ramifications of the initial relentless the mutt! symptom which is in its own private hell party.
    At least it settles and so is the rest but still in a lot of trouble.

    Think I'm in another mini mania.

    Yes lovey sleeps been affected greatly. Late getting to sleep with pain discomfort also getting me up early lately but havent day slept for a few so catching better durations now.
    Wrecked Grandz going bed soon.

    Oh we had 2 lovely walking days yay. Bbl on that.

    Ohhh what a shame 😓 I knew one day.
    Been given 3 mths notice here.
    Owner in future wants to live here. Can't blame her.

    I've been incredibly lucky with reasonable rent and location.
    Might have to leave the area.

    One of the biggest sads is I was so happy to have a spare room in case here ever changed the no contact rule 😢 and a beach. So many including Doolsy would love it here. Obviously you of course my darlin.

    There' positives and my gut says I'll be ok but bummer. How it goes dagh.

    We're going to start packing.

    I have fluid. Going to check it out. Bit suss it's worse on one side.

    Thanks Grandy so much lovely one and for other lovelies that care here ☺

    Hope you're ok beautiful. PubAok lysvm yAdimh. Always need you precious friend 🤝🤗

    👩‍❤️‍👩💜🗯🕊😴😚

    Hi Beautiful Deebi👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩..waves 🙋🏻‍♀️ Dear Paws and everyone..🤗.

    How very sad that you need to move...Maybe you might find something in the same area...or not far away from your beautiful Mr. Deebi....I would have you come live with me anytime at all....Mr Deebi would also be very welcomed...I have a spare room...that needs my bbff to occupy....Please be very careful packing your things up...Not sure but the real estate your paying rent to..might have something else available for you....I know how stressful moving can be..and please be careful with your back and neck...Im so sorry this has happened to you.😓.

    Hi beautiful Deebi 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩..

    How are your dearest bbff?...

    I am a bit...Well a lot concerned about you..and been thinking about you all day and hoping that your feeling a little better...

    I know that you have so much on your plate..with having to find somewhere else to live..as well as trying to manage your physical and mental health...I am deeply sorry about all these things happening to you...You know you can talk/vent to me and others here...We all love and care for you so much....

    Wanted to wish you a beautiful refreshing sleep tonight dear bbff...When you lay down to go to sleep..imagine your mattress is made from the clouds and it’s so very soft..your floor is a crystal clear running river and you ceiling is covered with the most gorgeous full moon and millions of stars....

    Lise your eyes and imagine your cloud bed, slowly drifting along the gentle movement of the running stream..feel the movement..just a very gentle rocking motion...take a deep breath in...smell the fragrance of the pine trees that are growing along the rivers edge...imagine while your drifting down the river, smelling the fresh pine air..that the stars above you are shining into the river...making the water sparkling like diamonds...The crickets/ birds/ frogs are serenading you..with the calmness of the night...the moon giving you a gentle light to guide you in the right direction towards peace and tranquility...

    Please you be okay Deebi....always..yadimh and my 💭 and always in my heart with love and care..💚💜🦋🤗..

    Its okay precious bbff...no need to answer..please be very gentle and kind to yourself....

    Much love, care and 🤗🦋💚.

    Grandy...🌜👀🤝👂🌛..

    Hi Paws 🐾 Grandy 👩‍❤️‍👩 and readers 🖐

    Thank you both beautiful people such caring gentle people.

    Oh this is cruel and SO DAMNED SLOW to recover. So much really hard pain. Completely over it! And another really nasty pain slightly easing. This is so hard.

    Good news about friend with cancer a bbff's partner loved he said once I'm family. One of the important places his cancer is nearly 90% back to normal. Awesome. Pet scan this wk so heres hoping continuing good news.

    Ahh dear Mil in way better spirits back to her sassy self. Her Pet happens in Feb.

    Was able to work though some serious down tho may have been mania helping. If I could remember but I know I accessed lateral and rational thought several times. Was good.

    BP had about 3 manias.

    Was horrible at times yesterday picky short didnt like myself. Apologised often to darling who was very patient the darling and didnt deserve my moods.

    Cried a lot over last few days with stinkin pain near 24/7 slightly easing but still very painful and frustration.

    Yesterday BP gave a dose of yuk mood what a cow. Not all the time and successfully pulled through. Always hard work but so good being to a lesser degree.

    So so tired. Visitors for a while today. Some help being hoping lined up.

    Caught up long call with neighbour good friend.

    Mhw tomoz and Doc.

    Grandy really loved my cloud bed. How clever I was in the ride. Loved it thanks so much girls.

    I'll be at yours asap sweety Grandz.

    Tried 2 pists yesterday couldn't fin8sh.

    One new poster it ripped my heart. Did 3/4's post took ages too painful I felt her pain so deeply and was worried that ultimately her besty (dog) would wonder why. It really shredded me. So terribly sad. I was in a delimma wether to say something. It hurt hard 😭 started the crying and boy didnt they flow.

    Having good moments laughing joking. Trouble pains 75% oh geez it really hurts.

    Nigh nite and thanks again lovely friends

    👩‍❤️‍👩💜💗💚🤝

    Deebi...Yes honey..some posts can be very hard to read..which causes us a lot of pain..It’s okay that you didn’t reply..Maybe later if you feel/want to..you could pop in and say hello....The most important thing..is to look after yourself when posting/reading/ replying on the forums...Sometimes we just have to leave up to someone else to post...I had to step away from one that caused me to be triggered for days...So please dearest bbff...look after your mental health...BB has a help thread for called...”Self care for the supporter”...There are some great tips in that thread that can help you....

    Please don’t rush over to mine...First is getting yourself feeling better..I understand you’re in physical and mental pain..,.and want you so much to care for you the best you can.,,,

    I’ll be sitting with you tonight dear bbff...holding your hand and singing 🎶🎶🎶 you a lullaby....maybe I should bring some 🎧 or you might end up with a 🤕 or 👂 ache listening to me attempt singing😂..

    Here you you bbff...unconditionally 24/7...

    Much love and gentle hugs Deebi👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩...🌜👀👂💚🌛..

    👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩Grandy...

    Hi lovely people 😊

    Thank you dear friends for your care and support it means a lot.

    Paul I've been quite concerned about you. Not long ago I read on a thread you said something that I interpreted that you're healths not at all been good. If that's the case I sincerely hope you're ok or recovering good man 🤗 Hoping I misunderstood.

    Magic Hey hun you have a knack, I've always said this that in a few words you give so much care and support. Many thanks it went deep.

    My dear Bbff 👩‍❤️‍👩 hi sweetyheart thank you for your loving caring support always hun.

    I'm through the days constantly thinking of things I want to say but don't remember or think to note, it's often when I'm doing something but that's normal lovely you're always in my thoughts 🗯.

    I love that post 28th Jan Gods love, and the wings made me think of you straight away. How powerful the words ...

    May the healing power of Christ..
    Breathe across you now...

    I'm trying to copy it but this isn't playing nice atm can't get the handles working tho it might now cause I copied that sentence.

    I'd like to reply, I know and appreciate very much you saying no pressure to but things I want to talk about so hoping I do get back.

    These meds for the OMG! Infection and how bad it is could take up to 6 mths to heal fully. One of them can affect the liver yikes. After 2 wks I have a 4 day break then back on. It worries me for liver the amount of pain killers I've been having including strongs but absolutely at times need them.

    Many tears with the pain but there's good times too when the pills kick in I'm having convos laughs and happy enough just this 6th wk now daily tragic pain even at times with the strongs it's there in the background.

    Something we do daily (everyone) several times causes untold wicked pain.

    I'd be ok to talk openly wish I could but yeh.

    There are some slight improves but Sheesh this is an incredibly long hard time. It's also in my mouth. Ok except parched often.

    You know times when everything slots in there's heaps of extremely good things happening and not too but the Goods are majorly winning atm including we have a very good condition new not literally car. Very happy and other awesomes too.

    I'm so ragged so I'll see youse all soon.

    Thank you good people. Love and care 🤗🍫

    Nigh nite all ☺

    👩‍❤️‍👩💜🤗🗯🤝👀😚

    Hey Hey DB you legend you!

    I had to reply after I read about your health....I really hope you are doing reasonably okay

    You are and have always been a legend and carer for others on the forums. I was going to leave in Jan 2020 until Covid was exported here and thought I would stick around to provide lived experience with the increase in anxiety related posts. I have been really tired DB and trying to find some support. I will get there :-)

    I hope you are getting all the support and assistance from your doctors DB

    my kindest always

    Paul

    Lovely people ☺ thank you everyone

    Paws thanks hun for your support.
    I hope lifes being kind to you. One reason is our reactions to pain are what pull & keep us down so often.
    Always smile when I see woofas ear so cutely tucked away. He looks gorgeous.

    Paul thanks for returning.I was/am sad 😢 but do understand people leaving.

    You're a good man you've given so much to so many people including myself in support.

    You maintained excellent threads in a class act style welcoming everyone and making our posts feel valid others do too it's special and warming. I've always liked your style.

    I'll miss you budz. Wishing you every success with health and mental healing.
    Again thank you Paul for everything 🤗 always ok for a good hug. Please take good care of yourself. 🌴 that's for your landscaping. Don't give up 🎵

    Dear Magic you're always appreciated pet 🤗 replied earlier. Hope you're holding up.

    Starts lovey thank you too for gently supporting & esp for the chocco mmm. I even shared your yummo home made choccy cake with our loves here. You're quite the wizz in the baking dept.

    Grandy my precious spesh-ish 😊... rhyme time.

    U R SOOO appreciated Grandy darlin. So much warmth and compassion amidst many other beautiful traits.

    Loven the ☘ 4 leaf clover of friendship. So true...
    Usually I drink up to 1.5 of water. 2 tends to get us up at night although it happens not as often.

    Some PTSD & scenarios. Coping but hard. Helps talking to thoughts. "Why did my mind take me back there"..."why that scenario"... "It's in the past, can't change it maybe can learn from". Bit harder accepting it can't hurt me anymore when the memories are. By then it's all gone. At least it holds off other down thoughts while I tackle those. Not too many considering exhaustion and high stress.

    Had some anxiety this eve. Geez it's awful. Breathing. Had several hrs sleep sarvo. Need more.

    Finger infected quite sore on antibiotics.

    Best news the pains almost gone and other cursing symptoms. Just scattered now. Yes the creams a hero Grandz. O/N took bulk pain away a couple days ago. Bliss. Easier to work on all the MH stuff and exhaustion.

    You're beautiful people supporting others when in your own pain. I really do hope you have reasons to smile even just for small breaks it's a rest from the yuks.

    To those that like hugs 🤗 for those that don't a warm elbow touch ⚘

    BPaly Grandy love always. 👩‍❤️‍👩💜🏠😢so much wish we could meet. Breaks my heart...🗯🤝👀
