Well done Tinkers for getting through such a difficult time, with that new lift the only way is up for sure!! With the long dark winter days that were often wet and cold it is hard to feel good but you have made it to the lighter brighter days and I hope you will continue to do well and feel better.

I have been thinking about you but this computer has been playing silly devils for weeks now so I don't get as much time on here as I would like.

Take care now and enjoy your new slant on life

Hi all

It's been a while since my last update so I thought I'd update again

Well I can't beleive that five months ago I hit rock bottom the worst place I've ever been in my life

With the help and support from my husband and you guys on here I don't think I would be here now

Today I am relaxed and calm its unbeleiveable I wouldn't say I was happy but I am getting there

The panic attacks r getting less and less now and I'm learning to control them now and they arnt controlling me anymore

Still suffering health wise but that's normal for me lol but with the help from my occupational therapist I hav a threw floor lift fitted and am waitin for a showing to b fitted then I won't no myself

Once again I just like to say a huge thank you to you guys on here for your love support and private messages

Hi all,

tinkers I am so glad things are moving on for you and your lift is done. Hope the shower happens soon too and you won't know yourself eh? The new tablets sound as tho they are helping you, well done for the outing to the boot sale, did you get any bargains?

Interpretation of Dutch's post lol : I spoke with Joyce the other day as it was Jan's bday, and she has had a wisdom tooth out but it's made her ear sore, so she is going back to the dentist. She has some problems down under so I told her to ask the doc about them asap

She is doing quite well I think as she manages to make herself understood very well when chatting and is determined to visit the UK again in August when Jan can drive her over, as she can't fly anymore.

Shame the meet Uzzi is planning isn't later as she could be there too but can't be helped.

Thanks Mary for adding Carole's message and thanks Carole for this thread and the help and support you have given

Good morning folks
Carole has asked me to post a message for her. Her subscription to GR has expired and she has decided not to renew at this time My understanding is that she will still be able to read messages, but not be able to post.
I think we should give a big round of applause to Carole, who had the 'intestinal fortitude' to make the initial post for this thread. Carole , thank you for bringing the topic of depression and anxiety out of the shadows, and into the open. Your brave post has helped folks to open up, in a safe place, and continues to be a lifeline. In addition, I know some of us have made new friends thanks to this thread..
Thank you Carole.
<3 <3
