Hear, hear Dermot. I never ever thought I would admit anyone was more perfect than me.

But I cede to your wisdom, diplomacy, humour and cooking :-) ;-)

Did we ever find out why Dave put up this thread? Hope it has helped and cheered him up a bit :-)

Despite the fact that I am right about most things, many others do not agree. Usually, of course, this is because they are just wrong.

Excuse me now because I’m off to boil my head as it needs shrinking every weekend.

Wend. Some of us see the cup half full, some see it half empty. You see it half full, I see it half empty.

I am a happy bunny though, same as you. The only advantage of being a pessimist is that, when life kicks you in the teeth (and I think we would both be surprised how many knocks we have had if we had an open discussion), it does not disappoint you quite so much. A sort of protection for the slings and arrows :-)

Thankfully John, neither of my grandmothers ever said that to me. I was a happy child and I'm now a very happy woman, despite everything that has kicked me up the you know what :-D :-D :-D

Dermot is the wisest man I have ever known - on a par with Ghandi. :-) ;-)

My grandma used to say "John, you're never happy unless you are complaining about something". They were wise, our grandmas :-) :-)

I was out all afternoon, so I missed it. Sorry Dave - whatever JLH said, I missed it, but please don't be offended by him. Very few are on here.

Hope you're OK. Post again if not - we've all got problems in our lives and many of us can be empathetic, be assured :-D

Sorry, Jude. 6 hours, not 10. I have been working all afternoon and evening and just scrolled through threads that interested me after late dinner.

And I saw this OP with hardly any views and no replies, so I added a post.

Not getting at you at all. I was wondering why all these active posters on here whilst we were both out never saw OP. It may be that one or two pm'd Dave.

I'm going to sleep soon and will sleep like a log. Hope you do likewise after your marmalade :-) Sweet dreams zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

PH. It may have been insensitive to a degree and have removed it. But Dave posted THIS MORNING. If he really did need support, what ever happened to the caring sharing community on Genes for 10 hours.

My post an hour ago (second on thread) at least brought it to first page.

Moaning , lets out stress , so its good to get things off your chest !.

JUST DO NOT DWELL ON YOUR PROBLEMS , I KNOW THIS SOUNDS EASIER SAID THAN DONE ,!

But like me , have a moan , perhaps prefably like here , then you do not up-set friends or relatives .

If it is still getting you down , GO TO SEE YOUR DOCTOR , explain things , before , your ill or do some-thing silly .

IT IS NO GOOD SOME-ONE SAYING TO YOU ,
"PULL YOUR-SELF TOGETHER "

This is not always possible !

I have had problems in the past , some resolved , some still not , I wish I could take my own advice .
