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

You do that, tinkers, fight your corner as is your right, and it will help you let off steam if they don't turn up. Hope they do tho and things get sorted out quickly.

You will feel lots better if it's all done and your room back to normal

Well tinkers, I hope the company get their fingers out and fit your lift for you, so you can get your room back to normal and sleep in a bed again, with ease getting up to it as well.

You sound much stronger so keep up the good work, I know life often seems like one step forward, two back but just keep trying hard to ignore the words and actions of this nasty person and look after yourself and o.h.

Take care, onwards and upwards, literally when that lift is in.

Hope everyone else is feeling strong and positive.

It was both cancel and lift company

I've been waitin three years for this to happen and council was umimng and arrrring then before Christmas they actually agreed to put the threw floor lift in so got a date from lift company for November just gone. Lift company cancelled that appointment so given me another date for next week again lift company phone to cancell again so I phoned my ot to get this sorted so she phones man from cancell so he must hav been in touch with lift company

Something must hav been said cos lift company phoned again saying job is back on something bout contract and he has to hire a van out of his own pocket but ill beleive it when I c it


AnninGlos Report 10 Jan 2014 16:46

Oh Michelle, that is such a nuisance isn't it, I actually thought it would have been fitted by now. Have they given a reason for the cancellation? Is this the council?


tinkers Report 10 Jan 2014 16:43

I have just started reading these pages.
You have certainly been through it Tinkers.
You are sounding more positive in your last message.
I know it will be hard at times but exclude the person who is giving you so much grief.
Be strong. I will be thinking of you,
Sue :-)


tinkers Report 10 Jan 2014 15:18

Thank you ladies I won't make contact with this person as I won't make contact as this person is doing all the running

Without going into wat happened on here I did find some answers of actually what this person said and done and it's not nice but I am starting to think more positive and decided what I want in live and this person isn't included but who knows what the future holds


SuffolkVera Report 10 Jan 2014 10:24

I haven't posted for a while, tinkers, as I didn't think I had anything useful to add but I'm still willing you on to get better.

Try not to let the person who is upsetting you get to you. I know that's easier said than done but, if you can, avoid being with them and don't let them see how much they are hurting you. If you can put up Liz's "invisible shield" you can visualise their words not getting through to you but bouncing straight back at them.

Do you have to have contact with the person who is upsetting you tinkers, can you not avoid them or ignore them if you see them so they are unable to continue hurtng you? If they are harrassing you, you could possibly get police to warn them off, with the threat that any more harrassment will be met with police action.

Try and keep an invisible shield between them and you, don't let them do their worst to you.

Good luck



tinkers Report 9 Jan 2014 15:36

Well just as I'm starting to get threw the worse of the depression something else has happened

Without saying to much but the person who upset me in the first place is at their old tricks again upsetting me and I'm crying all the time

My doctor is keeping an eye on me as he wants to see me every couple of weeks or so

hI tinkers,

Sleep apnoea will cause problems with sleeping well as you wake yourself up constantly, I do it myself sometimes but I read myself off to sleep again if I am not able to drift off (that's if o.h. has got up, can't read when he is trying to sleep, obviously) My sleep pattern is crazy, I have been ujp all night as usual, watching tv recordings or being on here (and I took the Christmas decorations down earlier lol) and then when my o.h. gets up for the early shift at work this week, I go to bed and sleep till about 2pm or longer, depending on how I feel or what I have to do. It's the only way I can manage to get any sleep, altho it does affect my life in that in winter I barely see daylight but it stops me getting to so many shops so I save money lol Used to love the charity shops but by the time I am up and ready to go out they are usually closing.

Just keep doing what you are doing, taking each day as it comes, trying to keep busy to distract your mind from worrying and coping as best you can.
